1 guy who played terribly in the bubble is Montrez Harrell, but he had a death in the family came in the bubble late and was never in rhythm, his value as a free agent is going to go down but if we can get him for $10 mill per season or so he would be a very interesting addition to our team, in the regular season when he's in rhythm and he plays with a good passing guard he can get you 20 points inside. Plus 10 rebounds and interior D.

I do not want Montrez Harrell. He's such a dirty player and all talk.

Yea I personally don’t want anyone from the Clippers team, the way the entire franchise conducted themselves left a bad taste in my mouth. At least prove yourself first like Golden State and then talk

All NBA Teams announced:

1st team: Giannis, LeBron, AD, Harden, and Luka
2nd team: Kawhi, Jokic, Siakam, Chris Paul, and Lillard
3rd team: Tatum, Butler, Gobert, Simmons, and Westbrook

Siakam making the All NBA 2nd team now puts his contract at 28% of the salary cap instead of the 25%. That gives the Raptors even less money to play with now. Aside from that, and aside from his playoff showing however, congratulations to him on the recognition. He was deserving of it from his regular season performance.

wait, because he made all NBA team, they have to pay him more? even though contract is already signed?
Also... Siakam 2nd team? common now.... purely based on regular season does he really make all NBA team?

Yeah, contract had incentives tied to it. So it went from 25% of max to 28%.

Almost all awards are based on regular season, of which he did have a very good one. The regular season is a distant memory for many and understandably doesn't count for much for many of us, after seeing his playoff performance.

But remember he was an all-star starter, and among forwards, his numbers were better than Butler and Tatum who were third team. Also, team success does have some influence as well, which makes sense because you should be helping your team win.

Why isn't our PG Kyle Lowry in the list?

Lowry's value doesn't fully show up in the numbers. But real ones know, he's the greatest Raptor of all time. Some of these media voters may not have even watched a Raptor game for all we know, they just look at some highlights, and look at the numbers and team record. Lol.

To have Simmons in there and Kyle out is a travesty.

Harrell's defense is swiss cheese. Honestly reminds me of Kenneth Faried where his rebounding numbers hid his horrible defense

Don't like the look either...perhaps some "teeth" like the jaws of a Raptor.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
