The Raptors in the first 20 years of their franchise only won one playoff series The last 5 years theyve won 9 9:25 pm Sun Aug 23 EDTRemoved

Masai Ujiri is to thank for this. 1

A little clarification please10:16 pm Sun Aug 23 EDTRemoved

Murray finishes with 50 5 6 and Mitchell finishes with 44 6 5 in another outstanding matchup11:12 pm Sun Aug 30 EDTRemoved

and yet its one of the most-under-the-radar series despite the ridiculous stuff happening. If Luka/Kawhi were doing these numbers this post would already have 20 golds and 3 platinums. 179

Who in Miami Heat can lockdown Giannis like Kawhi Leonard did in ECF 2019 6:03 pm Mon Aug 31 EDTRemoved

Exactly, its all about building a wall as a team. 6

What a absolute joke the last 2 calls of this Heat Vs Bucks game are9:35 pm Wed Sep 2 EDTRemoved

They cancel each other out lol 27

The end of the Heat Bucks is a result of years of flopping9:52 pm Wed Sep 2 EDTRemoved

Word. Refs were just trigger happy all night. Lots of fouls on jump shooters didnt help. 8

Who honestly believes Giannis deserves MVP over LeBron 10:05 pm Wed Sep 2 EDTRemoved

Giannis deserves it cuz its a reg season award But its undeniably gonna look awful if theyre down 1-3 or something and he wins it, like Dirks MVP 7

Replace giannis with healthy KD how much different would the series be right now against Miami 12:19 am Thu Sep 3 EDTRemoved

Yea KD torched us - Heat defense zeroed in on Harden 1

Do you think the long amount of time the last few minutes in an NBA game takes kills the hype or builds the anticipation 12:14 am Thu Sep 3 EDTRemoved

Anticipation is the greatest form of pleasure some would argue 8

Is Giannis the worst MVP of all time 1:54 pm Thu Sep 3 EDTRemoved

In embarrassing fashion too - Dirk shot 38% and got out-scored by Josh Howard. Imagine Middleton being far more efficient and scoring more than Giannis. 1

Would you swap your own teams 2 best players in exchange for Siakam FVV 4:23 pm Thu Sep 3 EDTRemoved

Heat fan: Hell no. I think each of Butler/Bam are superior to their counterparts. Hell, I think Dragic is better than FVV. -1

Would you swap your own teams 2 best players in exchange for Siakam FVV 4:23 pm Thu Sep 3 EDTRemoved

Theres a lot of other posts I could do to make that point. It just feels like everybody thinks Toronto is finished vs Boston and its mostly cuz no one thinks highly of Siakam/FVV. 2

Giannis is the problem not the Bucks supporting cast7:39 pm Fri Sep 4 EDTRemoved

Brook Lopez is making Heat fans lose their minds 8

Is Giannis hurt 8:50 pm Fri Sep 4 EDTRemoved

He is now But excuses are still excuses 2

If were talking Giannis minutes how come Jimmy Butler hasnt played more than 36 min and averages 34 5 mpg in the playoffs 9:39 pm Fri Sep 4 EDTRemoved

Cuz were winning and 7-0 lmao Trust me if we were down 1-2 Butler would be on that old Thib timeline 2

No team has comeback from a 0-3 series deficit in the NBA Playoffs 3 teams have pushed a series to 7 games - 1951 New York Knicks NBA Finals vs Royals 1994 Denver Nuggets 2nd Round vs Jazz 2003 Portland Trail Blazers 1st Round vs Mavericks 10:06 pm Fri Sep 4 EDTRemoved

That 1994 Nuggets team was wild. It was the FIRST #8 seed to upset a #1 seed, and then they nearly pulled off that extra unprecedented feat. 1

Whos the next superstar that people are going to turn on 10:07 pm Fri Sep 4 EDTRemoved

Ill do you one better "The Mavs screwed up investing in Kp with a max deal when hes always hurt, he has no help." 4

Is Lebron really in contention for best player in the NBA 11:44 pm Fri Sep 4 EDTRemoved

Guys Lakers in 6 - LeBron often loses Game #1 2nd Round remember the Chicago serieses -1

Brother, Ive seen 20+ Game 7s since Ive started using reddit. Only 1 has left me legitimately shocked me and had me saying "holy fucking shit theyre actually gonna win" * 2016 Finals: Cavs complete 3-1 comeback vs Warriors The Nuggets winning this seri -1

Do people honestly believe the league rigs games for more money 5:02 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Most fans are morons and whenever things dont break right, its because "they" the NBA, is against them. 99% of the time its wrong - except when the NBA 100000% rigged D-Rose to the Bulls over the Heat. 5

Post Game Thread The Miami Heat defeat the Boston Celtics in overtime score to take a 1-0 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals 9:27 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Jimmy Butler is a **superstar** in every sense of the word. Hope yall learned that today. 2

Goran Dragic in Game 1 vs Boston 29 points 11 19 3 6 from 3 4 4 from FT 7 rebounds 4 assists 1 block and 1 turnover9:33 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

He wont get the shine of Jimmy who hit the clutchest shots at the end of regular season or OT - or Bams respect for blocking Tatum at the rim, but our 3 biggest stars showed up tonight in every sense. 1

Tatum was excellent the final 20 seconds yet the 3 plays he was involved in cost the Celtics the game9:37 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Sometimes you boom, sometimes you get Bammed 4

Is Harrell just the new Kenneth Faried 11:15 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Clippers worst series choke in playoff history 11:31 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Still belongs to 3-1 Warriors They actually had won a title(aka had earned arrogance) + 73-9 regular season 1

Clippers mods have made their sub private11:31 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

I dont blame them lmao 3

What does Kawhi have to do to be a top 10 player next year 11:47 pm Tue Sep 15 EDTRemoved

Hope he can imitate Jimmy Butlers leadership 1

Serious Is Lebron Underrated now1:29 am Wed Sep 16 EDTRemoved

He scored 9 points in 3 Finals games lmao (yes, its obvious he wasnt the player then he is now) 5

Kawhi isnt as good as Steph or LeBron and this series is proof1:34 am Wed Sep 16 EDTRemoved

Wild opinion: People are over-rating Steph/KD now as individual stars LeBron is the only dude whos legit always a Finals ticket. After that its a little gap, then KD, Steph, Kawhi, Giannis, Harden, etc.. 1

Kawhi isnt as good as Steph or LeBron and this series is proof1:34 am Wed Sep 16 EDTRemoved

People always do this lol He got hurt. Legitimately. How about the 8 straight years before that(inb4 HE WAS IN THE EAST!!! when he just beat two West teams in 5 games, well see how he does vs Denver) 2

Kawhi isnt as good as Steph or LeBron and this series is proof1:34 am Wed Sep 16 EDTRemoved

> Stop acting like LeBron is a guaranteed finals appearance He literally has been for 8(potentially 9 depending WCF) of the last 10 years lmaooooo 1

TBT to when Dwyane Wade said The Clippers are who we thought they were after blowing the Warriors out in October of last year just 3 games after the Mavs blew them out1:45 am Wed Sep 16 EDTRemoved

The bizarre angle on this D-Wade hate thread when analysts like Zach Lowe also had Clips by a landslide is interesting 2

Kawhi is still better than James Harden2:38 am Wed Sep 16 EDTRemoved

Doesnt really matter... Kawhi has more playoff success than Harden has by far. -1

Would the league not be insanely more entertaining if 10 teams were removed 9:02 pm Thu Sep 17 EDTRemoved

If only we had done this the last 6 years when the Lakers sucked 4

The Heat are now 10-1 in the 2020 playoffs9:39 pm Thu Sep 17 EDTRemoved

Better start weve had to the playoffs than any Big 3 Heat year - thats NUTS 1

The Miami Heat are officially 10-1 in these playoffs 9:40 pm Thu Sep 17 EDTRemoved

10-1 to start is a better start than we had in any of the Big 3 Heat years which is nuts. 8

Would anyone be that surprised at this point if the Heat go on to sweep the Celtics 9:42 pm Thu Sep 17 EDTRemoved

Celtics have been up by 14+ in both games and each game ended close. Game #3 will decide if this ends quickly or if theyll OG us. 2

If the finals is Lakers vs Heat does Dion Waiters get a ring no matter who wins 10:00 pm Thu Sep 17 EDTRemoved

Stop it /u/DionWaiteress 1

The Heat and Nuggets getting so far in the playoffs is proof that the Bubble has a major impact on results9:46 pm Thu Sep 17 EDTRemoved

We whooped up on the Bucks in the regular season too - we beat them without Butler lol 10

Who are guys in NBA history like Kawhi that just hooped so you couldn t laugh at him for losing 12:05 am Fri Sep 18 EDTRemoved

Tim Duncan LITERALLY missed a bunny in Game #7 of the 2013 NBA Finals to tie the game vs Shane Battier 26
