Go Raptors!
« on: June 13, 2019, 09:12:25 PM »
Can they pull if off tonight?

Toronto is leading at the end of the 2nd period.

I have to admit I have never watched a full basketball game until the game last week where Toronto took the series 3 - 1. Never interested me that much but these playoff games are pretty entertaining. I don't think there is a single Canadian player on the Raptors team but this playoff run has sure got the countries attention.

 Congratulations to the Raptors  :bow:

As an aside , Kawhi Leonard has the highest winning percentage of any player in NBA history , better than Magic , better than Bird , better than Jordan, better than Bill Russell . Let that sink in for a moment .

 One more aside , Serge Ibaka lived just around the corner from Lowryter while playing for OKC , betting John didn't even know that  :grin:

Fred VanVleet is a hometown Rockford guy.  He still lives here and is our hometown hero.  The whole town has been following his career since he was a high school standout.

Not next door, and there are only two streets south in the entire addition.  I do know that a couple of players lived  a mile SW of us in a gated place.

Toronto has gone crazy, and they were even partying in Montreal!  Well done!

No.  Landon retired from Boeing.  The folks west of them, not sure it's gone through several owners.  I already mentioned where I thought Serge lived.
