Prediction

- 95
- 109

Last night's win over Milwaukee didn't convince me that we've made any strides forward. That being said, I don't like our chances tomorrow night against RJ, VC and the Nets.

Predict and discuss!

I'll bet you we win tomorrow.

Tomorrow will be the first time in a long time that we've had a playoff crowd, the Raptors will be pumped up, we'll win by at least 10. I should bring a sign to the game making fun of Leo.

Here's my suggestions for you Leo sign:


Keep talking Leo, someday you'll say something intelligent.

Leo, I don't know what makes you so stupid, but it really works!

Leo, calling you stupid would be an insult to stupid people.

Hey Leo, I'd like to see things from your point of view but I can't seem to get my head that far up my ass.

Haha. I should hold it up if hes doing the pregame right when you walk into the stadium too and start shouting so he'll notice it and distract him. I could take Leo

Yeah I wont have a voice on Monday guaranteed. I hate the people in the crowd that give you the death stare when you're cheering for your team, dumbasses. I remember one guy last year told the dude in our row to 'keep it down' and the guy in our row rightfully told him to wake the fuck up hes at a sports event cheering is allowed.

I want Moon/Parker to shut down Carter so he can have that sorry-ass pouty look on his face. I don't wanna see Cater smile for 1 sec once the game starts.

Even if we're beating them by 30 and he's only scored 2 point on 1 of 64 shooting he'll be smiling and laughing.

Whats wrong with Leo hes a straight shooter and calls it like it is for the most part. He must stay within the company lines. Both he and Chuck do a great job and keep all the controverial stuff to a minimum. I would love to see Leo or Triano coach this team. I know one thing for sure they would not put up with any bull shit from the players or player.

Triano sucks and the only reason hes still an asst coach is because hes Canadian.
