^ That maybe so, but I will never underestimate Kevin Durant again after watching Monday night's game against the Orlando Magic. He killed it with 49 points and is truly a force to reckon with.

both KD and Klay went off that game, you can't underestimate them and Raps will be under must-win mode, xtra pressure, if you lose without Steph and Draymond playing, at home, how can you really expect to compete in the finals with them potentially at full force?

Was reading this Kawhi article claiming trade victory for us. It's early in the season but when you look at 3 pt shooting in 16 games Kawhi is shooting 22 for 66, 33%. And he claims he is taking tough shots not trying to pad his stats. Demar on the other hand is 6 for 33, 18% in 21 games. Tough to argue with that.

Compared to last season, Raptors improved from 15-7 to 18-4. Meanwhile Spurs went from 14-7 to 10-11.

The only conclusions that can be drawn from this: Raptors are better with Kawhi than DeRozen and Spurs are better with Kawhi not playing than DeRozen.

Even a novice like me can see that. Unfortunately, DD and even Casey somehow didn't get it done so say all you will about the GM, he made a move. KL just brings something special, an intangible quality not many players have. You either got the killer instinct *and* can execute, or you don't.

The Raptors are much better defensively and better at shooting 3s with DeRozan gone.

The Spurs got much worse defensively and worse at shooting 3s since they acquired DeRozan.
The Spurs have pretty much the same roster as last year minus old Tony Parker and add in DeRozan (Kawhi barely played last year for the Spurs).

As for greatest Raptors of all-time:
Vince Carter, Chris Bosh and regular season Kyle Lowry > lol regular season DeRozan >>>> playoff DeFrozen.
DeMar has had the most talent surrounding him. There was no way Chris Bosh was going to beat the Orlando Magic with that supporting cast and against Dwight Howard in his prime.

Demar is a better player than Bosh ever was
DeRozan was benched the entire 4th quarter of a critical playoff game when he was playing so bad and because he is a defensive liability.

Why not trade him for KD instead. He looks like he is stoned in the 4th quarter so far, what a mess.
