Main takeaways from the playoffs this year... 1.) Toronto's defense is legit, 2.) Giannis still has some growing pains left, 3.) Philly is a lot closer than I originally thought, and 4.) Chris Paul and James Harden are the John Stockton and Karl Malone of this generation - a championship-caliber tandem that had the misfortune of playing in the same era as an all-time great team.

At least Malone and the crew got to the Finals.

I love how amped up this Toronto crowd is. It's so awesome to see this kind of energy again in the Finals.

Warriors just need to win 1 out of the next 2. Game 6 is on next Thursday, and Durant would most likely be able to play unless he is a wuss or his Achilles was the problem all along.

It's quite humourous to see the internet awash with stories of how scummy Canadians are. Quite the turnaround from the lovable underdogs. Classless of course, but as if every other fanbase wouldn't have done the same thing in the same situation. Nevertheless, still a dumb, dumb thing to do. Not for the optics, but for the potential of firing up the Warriors who were on the ropes.

I feel bad for KD... just terrible the way they were making it seem that he was not trying hard to get back on the court and then that happened. Smh hopefully he’s an exception to these Achilles injuries in ball players ugh this changed the way I view injuries now I’ll never get mad if they don’t play like kawhi...

Kawhi has a legit claim as the best player in the world.....its definitely a discussion.

Happy for the Raptors, happy for the St. Louis Blues. That was a great 24 hours for sports.

Free agency started with a bang. Picking the Lakers and Sixers for the Finals next year assuming Philly can retain Butler.

Lakers are contenders for sure but if they can get one more all star then book it....champions. Beal, Kemba, Butler, etc. Some good role players would be nice as well. Lakers will be in the conference finals as of now at least.

Brooklyn hit the jackpot! Got them top 3 in the East right now....Bucks, Sixers, Nets.....Raptors too if they sign Kawhi.

I'm glad that GSW superteam is over. I think we got our NBA back.

Side note - as a fan of a team, is there some kind of clause that allows you to switch to the city's other team if they've been completely irrelevant for nearly 20 years with no end in sight? Asking for a friend.

On second though Nets might get to Finals.....Bucks lose Hill and Brogdon.....Raptors might not sign Kawhi......and Sixers loss Redick and maybe Butler....we'll see.

Sixers might be the favorites in the East now.....keeping Tobias that can play the 3 and shoot the 3 plus Horford at the 4 is big time. Great team.

Now everyone is waiting on kawhi.
