Like Raptors championship rings?
— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) October 22, 2019
I don’t know how to put this in words. Thank you to the greatest organization in sports for how much they care about their fans. I accept this championship ring on behalf of every @Raptors fan across the globe. Words do not express what this means to me. pic.twitter.com/iA5VE10V1K

First Half Only:
Second Half Only:
Making his first EVER appearance on The Jump is First Take’s:
Clippers bench outscoring Lakers, 60-19
“To be a championship team, you got to have a championship bench“
“This is the fundamental difference between these two teams: the Lakers had to clear the decks to get their two superstars, the Clippers were able to get their two superstars without losing all the depth”
Kawhi’s 16-point 2nd quarter
Most points in a second quarter in Leonard’s career
“Kawhi embraced this game and the Clippers embraced this rivalry”
“His offense has caught up to his defense. I’m not surprised by this. This is who he is now”
“We’re seeing him at the height of his power” – Nichols
LeBron & AD scoring 2 fourth quarter points
“I don’t think this is anything. LeBron was trying to figure things out. He was deferring a lot and very passive. He’s done that in the past with some of his newer teams” – T-Mac
“They have probably had the least amount of practice time of anybody in the NBA. It felt like they were practicing in this game”
Norman Powell’s shot at end of regulation was ____
🤣😂😂😂😂🤣🤣 that’s what you draw up out the timeout 😂😂😂😂

“Surprising” – T-Mac
T-Mac millenniums reason for Ingram’s strong game?
Had 22-5-5 vs Raptors
“I got a new pair coming in December. MZ 2s” – T-Mac
Is Jared Dudley built like a math teacher?
Dudley is built like an algebra trig teacher but you better not leave him open.. Lol

“You better not leave him open” – T-Mac
OTD in 2004: Jalen Rose with the lob pass to Vince Carter who finishes it hard at the basket!
Rachel’s one-on-one conversation with Sixers superstar, Joel “The Process” Embiid!
Embiid’s goals for this season realistic?
“2 of the 3 is reachable: MVP and DPOY. They will be top 2 in the East. He’ll be the leader of this team, but I don’t think they’ll win the championship” – T-Mac
“The most important thing for the Sixers is Joel’s health” – Windhorst
Draymond on fallout from altercation with KD:
Via The Woj Pod:
Could Draymond-KD altercation have been handled differently?
“That’s maturity from Draymond. I got nothing but respect for Draymond manning up and going to KD and apologize” – T-Mac
“If there was no apology, it w probably would have been physical” – T-Mac
“I’ve been with Bob Myers my whole career. He’s someone I admire and respect. I’m not surprised on the relationship Draymond Green has with because Bob is just that type of guy” – T-Mac on his former agent
Can Warriors win title with current core?
Panic time for Lakers already?
“The offense was a little clunky. You can tell that they’re trying to figure out how to use Anthony Davis” – Lowe
“Everything went wrong” – T-Mac

If Bucks don’t make Finals, Giannis won’t sign supermax
“It’s ticking, but it’s less dire for Milwaukee if he doesn’t sign it. There’s more of a chance he might actually stay another year and then re-sign a regular contract” – Lowe
“Giannis would be leaving 5 years, $253M on the table. There’s no way in hell he is turning that down on a team that’s been competitive in the Eastern Conference for the last few years” – T-Mac
Heat will finish 3rd in East
“I just like this weird, big, strange Heat team. Jimmy Butler is the best player on that team. I like their mix of size and defense” – Lowe
“My three teams are Philly, Milwaukee and Boston. But not Miami” – T-Mac
“I think the Celtics will be a good regular season team. I do have concerns in the playoffs” – Nichols
Harden might average 40 PPG
“I am standing by that. He has that ability because of where the game is at today. The system is tailored made for this guy to put up numbers night in and night out” – T-Mac
“Westbrook is going to demand more of the ball, more of the offense. I don’t see how he could average 40 playing with Russ” – Lowe
OTD in 2013: LeBron bouncing the ball to D-Wade, then bouncing it back to LeBron who slams it home!
Spicy P’s big game a good sign for Raptors?
Banged up Blake
Can Pistons hold the fort with Blake out?
Out until November
LeBron on Clippers: “It’s not a rivalry”
— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) October 23, 2019
“I’m disgusted by that comment from LeBron. You respond with a passive performance on the offensive side of the floor. I don’t want to hear that” – Smith
“It’s definitely a rivalry. You got to accept that challenge and in this game, he didn’t accept it” – T-Mac
“BS. It is a rivalry” – Nichols
Kyrie on Nets: “It was an easy decision I was coming here regardless”
“Kyrie would have went to New York if KD had gone to the Knicks” – Smith
“Wherever KD was going to go, he was going to follow suit” – T-Mac
