Is Drake going to get T’d up one day?
Monologue: Raptors laugh in the face of danger (now)
The bench actually showed up:
Worried about Kawhi’s health?
“I’m extremely concerned. We can see this man is playing hurt and you can just see it sometimes in his face. But he’s such a warrior. At some point in time, it’s going to catch up to him” – Scott
“Is the reason why he’s dunking like that (off his left leg) because he doesn’t want to push off of his right quad? Every time I see that, I’m kind of wondering about where his health really. But I think you have to trust him. If he’s not able to go, he’s certainly proven to us that he will sit out” – Shelburne
“I’m concerned just because this series is every other day. You’re not going to have that much time to recover for the Finals, if they were to make it. You’ve had load management all year, but there’s no managing this load right now” – Shelburne
“Even if this guy is not staying [beyond this season], he’s giving you every ounce of himself. That’s a big level of commitment” – Shelburne
Buy KD is “100% undecided” on future?

“Of course not. Things can change” – Shelburne
“He’s still thinking about. He understands that he has a job to do” – Scott
“He’s 100% decided that he’s not going back to Golden State. I really feel that way with KD” – Scott
“Kevin Durant is an emotional guy and I say that with respect. He’s passionate” – Shelburne

Does Kawhi prefer to dunk lefty?
Is this Steph impression accurate?
From Game 4:
Oh yea, we run that play a lot. We call it 'fist side.' https://t.co/Qa22rlVxtB

What got into Serge Ibaka in Game 4?
Stat line: 17 points, 13 rebounds in 24 minutes off the bench
“That was huge for Serge and the bench. People forget the Raptors are pretty good without Kawhi Leonard this year. They were 17-5 when he didn’t play and it’s because of guys like Serge had games like this. But he hasn’t been great in this series until [Game 4]” – Shelburne
“They need Serge to play like this again” – Scott
Impressed that Kyle Korver outlasted a copy machine?
Lakers becoming more or less dysfunctional?
“They’re a little bit more dysfunctional. What Earvin did on Monday just put them a couple of more steps back in this summer with the pursuit of free agency. It’s going to be tough” – Scott
Shelburne: Less dysfunctional
Rather have all-defensive 1st team or 2nd team?
Shelburne and Scott: 2nd team
“That 2nd Team is a 1st Team” – Scott
Who do you call first on June 30 at 6 ET: KD or Kawhi?
Shelburne: KD | Scott: KD
“Kawhi, being 3 years younger would also help. That also puts a little bit pressure on who you pick first” – Scott
The season of the massive comeback in the NBA by Kevin Pelton and Baxter Holmes
KD-Draymond argument make Warriors stronger?
“I buy it to a certain extent because of this group of guys that they have together, it was easier for them to overcome this. It has made them stronger” – Scott
“In this era of passive aggressivity, this is so refreshing to see. He actually said what was on his mind. He said what everyone was thinking and they dealt with it” – Shelburne
May 22, 2003 – Jason Kidd with the tough no look reverse layup, plus the foul vs the Pistons!
Byron, would you let Drake rub your shoulders mid-game?
Byron is a great guy and a lot of fun to work with… but he’d be a poor choice for the shoulder rub. AK https://t.co/GPn2AJ1Umh

“No. Unless you are a certified masseuse and I am paying you, especially a man, you do not rub my shoulders” – Scott
Moving up west coast tip times a good idea?
Adam Silver saying LeBron playing late games has impacted TV ratings in an interview with “Today,” The NBA is looking to move up 10:30 west coast start times
“They are so late when you’re on the east coast that most people just don’t even watch the second half. It would help the West coast teams on both ways. More people would see them play and it works great in the Finals” – Shelburne
Nuggets “Fully Expect” to bring back Paul Millsap
$30M team option on Millsap
“Yeah. I think that’s what you say right now” – Shelburne
Level of concern for Bucks?
“I’m not that concerned. This is what you played the whole season for: home court advantage” – Scott
“It’s a young team that hasn’t been there. They don’t have that much experience with adversity” – Shelburne
Should Bucks consider benching Eric Bledsoe?
“He’s got to get to the basket and get in their open floor a little bit more” – Scott
“Eric Bledsoe is more important to the Bucks than Fred VanVleet is to the Raptors” – Nichols
