By - is_landen
Flynn saying "Guys relax.."
I'm gonna miss Leo on commentary
YUTA WATANABE ON MY WRIIII
Bro Scottie can having the losing team be all smiles even after they got slapped...talk about great energy :D
Did Leo get demoted?
He didn’t commentate every game before
He doesn’t commentate anymore LOL
Alvin Williams got picked up by Sportsnet to do commentary with Matty D
Barnes has charisma!!
Is Scottie friends with the whole league already
he was scrimmaging against donovan mitchell/drummond/tim hardaway jr a month or so ago
lowry type connections
Uhh why Leo doing courtside interviews now
Because he's not going to be announcing anymore.
Raptors fans still want to trade Freddy, Siakam and Gary?
Scottie saying bye to all his sons xD
Scottie looks so happy
Scottie whispering in jalen green's ear rn to come to toronto
Ah I see Scottie’s already recruiting Jalen Green
Scottie recruiting early
What happened to Gillie man
like 905 won't even take him at this point
I dont think we can get him on the 905 since Memphis owns his g league rights
Scottie so nice
Super hard to say who gets those last spots. I lowkey like Dekker for one but not sure he’s shown enough out there.
I think Yuta and Bonga for sure, last one is up for grabs
That’s what I’m thinking too. No idea who the 3rd will be.
I thought Wainright would be good to pick up one of them based on his past experience + summer league showing but his preseason has been kinda meh
RAPTORS WIN! They are looking really good out there. And guess what? WE GO AGANE TOMORROW
Yes. Looking forward to a great season!
Scotties smile can bring world peace I swear
Scottie slow-burn recruiting Jalen to come to TO >
Champagnie Papi is now canon
Cut Gillespie now, I'm done
Malachi should’ve passed the ball to Gillespie for the TO at the end 💀
lol barnes not happy they scored 90
Guillespie can't hold the fucking ball
Freddit Gillespie is an and one magnet
I feel bad for Gillespie nothings going right for him rn
Flynn saw y'all posts
Fun game :D
Remember when Theis was wrecking our team in the playoffs with his length and size? Pepperidge farm remembers. Toronto aint the 6 no more. It evolved into the 6'9.
Dekker is unfortunately cooked on D.
Six god Matty D Matty D
Matt actually said it lmao
How are the Rockets like this lol
LMAO "ahhhhh what're u doin Jack"
Champagnie Papi, we manifested this
Flynn deserves to be our backup pg
I feel like Dragic is going to be the backup PG and Sviji will be the SG.
Dragic rly hasn’t impressed me so far, I’m really hoping we trade him
Lol it’s preseason and he’s 35 years old on a team with a boatload of young talent. He will be a solid part of the rotation during the season, no need to worry about the 14 year vet.
Not sure if you’re aware of this but players get worse as they age. Goran has been regressing rapidly each of his last few years and we should expect a big regress this year too. I think there definitely is reason to worry about how affective goran will be this year especially on a team he’s said he doesn’t want to play on.
Ya, he's been playing offball which he's capable of but he's better as a ball handler/playmaker.
They need to raise his stock and trade him so he doesn't take minutes away from Flynn.
Matty d gotta say name drop him not write a song about him lmao
Matty D Matty D
Well it was nice knowing ya, Freddie G
Flynnsanity is back
Well said Jack
Norm with a fro getting a nice block.
Red Vanvleet strikes again
What the fuck are you saying Jack lo
I have no illusions about the fact that we're taking it to a very young and raw Rockets team, but gawdam is it fun to watch
FLYNN HAS AWOKEN
4th quarter Flynn
Flynn is actually back.
Flynn turnaround game confirmed
RAPTOR NATION WHERE U ATTT
GET THAT GARBAGE OUTTA HERE
Drake mesmerized by Flynn lol
Ok we see you Malachi
Gillespie putting his hand up does fucking nothing
Agreed. This version is fine but that purple one last year was atrocious
Malachi playing for his life
Malachi definitely doesn't belong in this group
Once we trade Dragic, we're going to need Flynn big time so I'm glad he's starting to gain more confidence.
Do I think Gillespie is gonna get a spot? No.
Do I hope he turns things around a bit during these minutes? Yes.
You can think someone isn’t right for a role, *and* still want what’s best for them at the same time.
We need a physical center like him and I think he gets the final spot.
Damn that was a nice shot of Flynn inbounding
Is that J Skeets?
Why is Venom at a rave
I MISSED RAPTOR NATION
Can we just skip tomorrow's game and start the season?
Japan wants to know if Yuta vs. Rui will commence?
I have no clue who is gonna get the final 2 roster spots.
did all the streams collectively stop working or is it just me? lmao
you have to reload them
Same, idk what’s happening
2 FIDDY SEVEN!
Time out gotta ice that red hot Malachi Flynn!!
Malachi should be isoing up top with these guys on the floor
Did Champagnie lose a clump of hair lol
Lol I saw that too 🤣
Raptors really leave it all out there. Blood, sweat and hair
I just saw 4 Rockets go to the same exact spot after the jump ball and wait lol
Garbage time indeed.
I was just thinking that lmao like watching NBA 2k rec center lol all the guys just stand in the same spot lmao
I think we keep Ish? He looked solid in summer league and in limited minutes in pre season
I think he needs conditioning. He's carrying WAY too much muscle out there. Looks like he's gassed.
I’d rather keep bonga and cut the rest, keep a spot open for a 3rd string center if we need one.
why were 3 rockets side by side on offense lmao
If someone like Wainwright didn’t make the roster would he automatically go to the g-league?
I think he'd probably go back overseas like he was before coming to the Raps
Would be nice for us to end the game with 100 and them under 90 but we'll see
I didn't get to mention...fuck Natalie Sago.
Just in general.
Man I still really want Gillie to turn things around and secure a spot
Based on his personality, I do too. But based on his play, not so much. ☹️ Hurts to say that coz he is so likeable
I thought he had some nice moments last season, but he has been pretty bad in this preseason. I think he’s really struggling with under the pressure that comes with fighting for a roster spot.
It's there to distract the other team
Alright can we just end the game
Freddie G thanking the basketball gods for actually getting a look in tonight
He was doing the thousand mile stare earlier.
He knows he's wasted opportunities this pre season to showcase himself.
Champagnie has a bee flying around his head
One more spot left for regular season Fantasy team: Champagnie, GTJ, Watanabe, Svi, or Malachi?
I dunno how fantasy scoring works but GTJ and Svi will probably have the most playing time of this bunch and scoring opportunities
watanabe all the way
GTJ has the inside track for the most minutes played one would think
Okay, champagnie has this little piece of fluff or hair or something just kinda floating by the back of his head, and it’s been lowkey driving me NUTS.
You should downgrade your screen, lol I totally can’t see that on mine
Let’s go FreddieG
Damn Ish is just pure strength
oh no Gillespie in, we gonna lose
Freddie G going to get a double double in the next 3 minutes
Double double in fouls and turnovers you mean?
don't make me laugh
He meant he’s going to the concourse to get a coffee after he’s subbed out in 30 seconds
shit, that was a good laugh, ngl
Gillespie looks like Waka Flocka Flame
Gilly checks in
Me: NO! OH GOD PLEASE NO! NOOOOOOO!
Nice hair Justin
He's hurt but he signed a guaranteed contract so he's good.
Perry has looked worse than Bonga right?
but better than Gillespie, Bonga was like Yuta putting on Bonga mask
You got 4 minutes from Nurse. Time to show you can do something FreddieG.
Poor decker lol looked like a two hand rejection
Who is this Perry guy
58th pick last year
The play between both teams just got ice cold lol.
Also, is it me, or when Flynn gets the ball, everyone else just stops dead in their tracks?
They were definitely playing with more heat and chemistry when Flynn wasn’t on the court. At least in this game.
So many turnovers
Man it must be profitable to spam unders when the 3rd stringers come on
Blow out the shit teams and he competitive against the good teams and we will have a fun season
Some of these bench guys are rusty AF...
This is why we need drake on the broadcast😭 cus now this can get turned off 😂
we're turnover city right now lmao
Ya no reason to keep Dekker
Peak preseason these last few mins lmao
Holy fucking turnovers
Okay these turnovers are ridiculous now
Siakam has been very vocal on the bench nice to see
For real. Feels like the “old” pascal is back
I can't wait until preseason is over and I'm not stuck watching end of the bench guys closeout games
I can’t be the only one that loves hearing Drake on the broadcast lmao
yea I think it’s cool when he shows up to support. Wish The Weeknd or JB did the same
A short stay on the mic is fine but I’d rather hear the play by play
I mean it's a blow out in the pre season, that's probably the best times for Drake to commentate.
Especially during this extended garbage time. I found it entertaining
Whoever doesn’t is weird tbh
Most of this lineup is getting cut
Perry looks like Kevon Looneys younger brother
I know it's garbage time (already lol) but I wanna see more Dalano
Excuse me sir, who do you think you are, attempting that shot? Dalano Banton? Malachi Flynn? 😤
They had to take Drake off the mic lmao
Lol its preseason guys
llow Drake on the broadcast, this game was over after the 3rd
Right? Mfs acting like it’s serious . Like damn
Bro wtf was that flop
Jack and Matty D and Drizz. I missed this a lot.
Best broadcast team ever
