I just finished watching them. JO had one of the best interviews of a Raptor I've ever seen. He was realistic, and yet very hopeful, and stressed the work that needed to be done. He wants to be judged only by wins and losses, which is music to my ears, and he looked like he really meant it. He said nothing else mattered whether it was being an All-Star or anything like that. And he placed all of his own importance on this team on the defensive end. I said that when the deal was made that if defense was the focus then it was a nice deal, but it seems like more than just the focus - he is really zeroed in on that. And that makes it a brilliant move.

Meanwhile Jose talked very little of defense, which was a bit disappointing. But his work ethic really came through. C'mon Jose - bring that work ethic to your defense and we're laughing!
