    Ever since Lowry and Ibaka came back on the rotation. The Raptors just sucks big. First of all Lowry is hogging to the ball to much. ibaka always committing unnecessary fouls and as he is not focus at all time to trade this guy. Nurse can't use Lowry and Vandvleet against Sixers as they are undersize.. he should try to use the same guys went Lowry and Ibaka was injured. The ball is not rotating and as if they are thinking what to do. Let the game come to you ....lowry move to everyone.

    Heat cause they got rid of Whiteside and added Butler, Raptors cause they got rid of Derozan and Pascal emerged, they also signed Rondae Hollis Jefferson whose been killing it and Terrance Davis the undrafted rookie is better than most first round picks.

    Which team has used the G League best so far? The Raptors. The whole point of the show and the subcaption throughout was to answer the question "Which team has used the G League best so far?" The entire show then talked about the Raptors' players, coaches, and processes yet never just went out and said the Raptors were the best at using the G League. The inability of ESPN to give the Raptors their due and the bias of the show to major American markets is horrendous. The answer is the Raptors, just come out and say it.

    They are good cause Masai has been great at spotting talent. Team has a lot of depth and they are able to play well in through injury and the absence of superstars

    I'm gobsmacked by how ignorant your average American is to anything that isn't American. Its disease-like. How hard would it have been to google the name of a city you're about reference, repeatedly, on NATIONAL TELEVISION. Even the references to Toronto's climate display an impressive level of idiocy. Toronto and New York share the same climate. Always have. Does anyone in American sports media know that?
