In reality the question about the Toronto Raptors ability to retain the services of center Bismack Biyombo in free agency this summer has been just laying out there – ignored – since last summer – until now.
Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry has been named to the All-NBA Third Team with 35 Second Team votes and 50 Third Team votes for a total of 155 points beating out James Harden who earned 106 points.
The Toronto Raptors Luis Scola and Patrick Patterson tag teamed the Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Love into two terrible games in Toronto that saw the All-Star relegated to the bench in the fourth quarter by head coach Tryonn Lue.
In an all to familiar refrain, Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey told the media by conference call that he isn’t going to have center Jonas Valanciunas chasing three-point shooters all over the court in Game Five.
In his Game 3 postgame comments, Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey made it known three times that officials need to be consistent in their calls. As far as I’m concerned, the refereeing crew led by Monty McCutchen sent a message to Casey in Game 4 to stop the bitching and that we can fix you.
“(Raptors) Kyle Lowry was absolutely unstoppable tonight, I don’t understand why,” ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith said. “DeMar DeRozan was unstoppable when it counted, I don’t understand why considering that (Cavaliers) LeBron James had been on him a couple of times.” Apparently Smith is trying to make both teams mad at him with his apology?
Toronto Raptors Bismack Biyombo extended a giant wagging finger to the Cavaliers, to the rest of the United States, and especially to ESPN who didn’t want the Raptors in these Eastern Conference Finals.
