Playing in Toronto is like playing overseas.

At the end of the day, and this is nothing against Toronto, there will always be the Canada deterring factor. Same in baseball.

In other news, the Denver Nuggets re-upped point guard Jamal Murray to a five year, 170 million dollar deal. This makes him the highest-paid Canadian athlete in history.

Sorry Stink and other Raptors fans...Kawhi ends up heading home to Los Angeles, but at least it's not with the frickin' Lakers.

Nuggets will have their work cut out for them with both LA teams bolstering their respective frontcourts. Some of the trades that take place in the NBA just blow my mind. I still don't quite know how the soft cap and all these weird exemptions work, but I like the fact they limit contracts to five years. The NHL should do the same.

Boy, there are some real decrepit franchises in professional sports. MLB has the Mets, the NHL has the Senators, the NFL has...too many to name. But I don't think any of them truly define pathetic like the Knicks do. They cleared all kinds of cap room thinking they were going to sign All The Players, even booting one of the few homegrown stars they had in the process, and end up with absolutely nothing to show for it. Add to that the fact they got completely hosed in the draft lottery and you have one very sad-sack franchise.

We da champs.

Kawhi did his job

Now for Masai to do his job.

The Greek Freak is Nigerian

Masai got him and his family to Greece.

Raptors are not team Canada.

They are team global basketball.

Add the freak to Pascal and Anounoby and we have an all star front court.

Find a guard to max out on and go to LA and disrupt the disruptor.

Teams are picking the bones of the OKC Thunder, a franchise that shouldn't exist in the first place. Even Denver got in on the action by trading for PF Jerami Grant. Now about the only big piece that remains is Auston Matthews' favorite player, Russell Westbrook. Wouldn't that be something if the Raps traded for him.

I'm sure once the NHL gets going in Seattle, the Supersonics will return in some form.
