Lmao he ain't even hit his head!!! Lmao!!!!
Memphis always will make runs !!! Can the finish it?
Look at the 10 players on the floor in WCF and wonder how a franchise can go 17 years and win one playoff series.
Marc gasol has made two if those type shots after the whistle lol
I did not see Grizzlies getting folded up by the Spurs like this.
For any Edmonton followers, going on Team 1260 momentarily to talk hoops
The Raps should just shut down Amir Johnson for next year now.
I haven't got even one Tank For Wiggins since Raps were announced as 12th pick. WHAT THE HELL, GUYS?
Interesting to ponder how draft shakes out. Noel to Cavs? McLemore or Burke to Magic? Porter or Bennett to wizards? Pelicans take ?
Raps should put Nick Gilbert on the payroll. Assistant to the president?
3. Washington; 2. Orlando; 1. Cleveland
Raptors should have had Kyle Lowry sitting up there
So, final 3 are Cavs, Wizards and Magic. Eastern Conference, yo!
Kyle Lowry for the 12th pick in a supposedly weak draft: not a bad deal, even if it didn't work out this year.
The Raptors give pick to OKC
The Raptors will be slotted 12th. The pick will go to Oklahoma City.
Pat Williams is going to hawk his next book right now.
when Raps don't move up does Colangelo get yanked off stage with cane old-school style and Troy weaver parachuted in?
Remember: Tonight, we're all winners of this lottery we call life.
Anthony Bennett getting lots of love and screen time at the NBA draft lottery
NBA TV Canada is indeed showing the lottery. Oh happy day! Raps have 2.5% chance of moving up to top 3 and keeping their pick.
Sorry, Americans: I meant what channel is it on in Canada, the true north strong and free.
So, many people are now saying the lottery is on NBA TV Canada at 8:30. It isn't showing scheduled NBA rewind, so makes sense.
One follower says streaming on Raptors dot com. Another says on NBA TV Canada. So, ya know, we'll see?
I have no idea what (if any channel) is showing draft lottery. Not on my channel guide.
Raptorsy or Raptory? I dunno.
About a billion pages of Raptors in tomorrow's Sun. Two billion if they win the lottery.
ESPN layoffs: just another reminder that you can never have a big enough profit. Sad.

Vinny’s out with the Clippers. Not a total shock - he always seems to be operating under the cloud of being Vinny Del Negro.
Clippers fire VDN a year after everybody thought they would. Who will Chris Paul select to be the new head coach?
"If different things happened, life would work out differently." - everybody on everything, always
Colangelo will do conference call with media after lottery if they finish top 3. If not, he won't.
Big takeout: don't expect NBA's first female GM to be hired in Toronto. Masculine pronoun used a lot.
Without an idea of who the next general manager is going to be, this is gotta be one of the weirdest days in Raptor-land.
Raps have 2.5% chance at moving up to top 3 tonight (and keeping pick), in case you forgot. Now, off to transcribing hell.
If BC doesn't ever get into politics, he is wasting his talents.
B2B conference calls with Leiweke and Colangelo confirms one thing: This IS Raptorland, everybody makes it out alive! (except Kevin O'Neil)
C'est tout. That was something. More to come later.
Colangelo: I’ll help whoever is in the job if they need my help.
Colagnelo: I will help whoever is in that new job
Conference is basically over, except for something called "Hoopswimmers."
Colagnelo on recommendations on coaching staff: that will be a decision for the new guy
Colangelo: If I'm asked my opinion, I'll give my opinion (RE: whether he'll say anything RE: Casey and his staff)
Regretting agreeing to transcribe BC over Leiweke right about now.
Colangelo:You can’t be a Monday morning quarterback in this business. You have to move forward.
The Raptors had Lillard/Barnes targeted in draft last year. Obviously both were gone by the time Raps picked. Would have changed everything.
(Barnes or Lillard) is a what if, but it clearly would have changed the course (and the following roster moves).
BC says, without saying it, that getting Barnes or Lillard would have changed a lot about what came next (Lowry, Gay, etc.)
Asked if things would be different with better coin toss win/loss luck (ie. Barnes or Lillard) BC says not sure, really like Ross
Colangelo admits it's not an "ideal situation" but he's going to make the most of it
Colangelo: "I've had people poaching on my job already, directly too me 'he can you put a word in' laughs. "It's a unique situation."
Colangelo: I’d be happy for Stefanski to get a legitimate look at the gm job.
Colangelo acknowledges his hiring of Stefanski last year was in part to please board request that he have a "succession plan in place."
Stefanski absolutely has not been Colangelo's yes man over last two years. But I doubt he'll get job.
Colangelo says Stefanski is a solid basketball mind and he hired him for a reason. A man w/ distinct opinions; hopes he gets a legit look
Colagnelo on Ed: he's a relationship guy...I'd be happy for him to get a legitmate look at the job
Up to board to choose replacement, but BC says they have nice succession plan in place in Stefanski
