    The Gordon hater is here—to eat crow. Gordon has been the best player on our team this series and the 1 guy whose gone 110% on both ends every game. If only other players were elevating their playoff play on the big stage like he’s been doing. Oh well.

    If this series makes us give up on Vuc then it will be worth it

    Unless Oladipo was castrated, he would still be playing with more balls than Evan Fournier.

    If Bamba doesn't like basketball that much, he should become a politician. His pre-draft interviews made it look like he wanted to be the next Hakeem Olajuwon -- And please, for the love of God, let these kids grow with heavy minutes. Isaac and Gordon have exciting potential, but they're still raw as hell and need reps and responsibility. I can't stress this enough

    Vuch and Fournier are street trash. They’re soft pathetic frauds. I don’t want either on this team next year. If this playoffs were good for 1 thing it’s showing us who the duds officially are.

    Don't hate the messenger here but from what I have been hearing from a trusted source who has contacts within the organization is don't be surprised if Vuc and Birch are not back next year. But who really knows what's going to happen.

    Haven't gone through the rest of this thread yet, but I agree with this. At this point, as happy as I am about the playoff berth and the game 1 win, and as much as I would love to see this team make playoffs next year, as of this moment (and it could change), I am of the mind that playoffs are not our top priority next year. Our top priority is to play our new young core, and see what we have with them and what they are made of. 4 of our starting 5 need to be Bamba, Gordon, Isaac, and Fultz and see how they play together and how they gel. That is our core going forward. It's time to let them develop. How Vuc, Fournier, and Ross will end up playing into that core, we can get that figured out. But we need to be playing our core 4, letting them develop, and playing supporting guys like Vuc, Fournier, Ross, and Augustin around them.

    I have no doubt this organization will spend whatever they need for a multiple all-star, all NBA type player. Just look at the last time we were in that position when we might have overpaid for Rashard Lewis.

    While I agree with the notion of developing the young guys, letting all 3 go feels like a bottom out. Even if we don't make the playoffs next year we absolutely want to be in the same ballpark. I think a better solution is signing/keeping 1-2 of the three so we remain competitive while also giving our young guys the opportunity to flourish.

    This comment is perfect!

    Relying on development of the youngsters like Isaac, Gordon, fultz and bamba, a pick and a fa while setting you up with financial flexibility for the future is by far the best we can do the goal is not to be a perennial 8th seed. The goal is to build a real contender. You will not get that if you keep starting Fournier or pay vucevic long term crazy money

    Damian Lillard's performance and game-winning shot is something straight outta Hollywood. If you saw somebody cap a 50 point performance in a movie with a shot like that, you'd laugh and say "I can't suspend my disbelief this much".

    I swear if I have to watch Evan Fournier play another minute for this team I may blow my brains out

    If Garland falls to us do we have a decent consensus that he should be the pick?

    I've been thinking a lot about how we can trade Fournier and I think the only reasonable situations would be teams already so far over the cap that they won't be able to improve by anything but a trade. For example the TWolves already have 109million commited next season and are locked in long term to KAT, Wiggins, Covington and Dieng and will probably try and bring back Tyus Jones as well. Would they do Fournier for Jeff Teague? They get more shooting and a guy who'd make a good 5th man or bench scorer. We get out of paying Fournier in 20-21 and a stop gap starting PG who kind of matches what we're trying to do. They already have over 90 million committed to 4 guys in 20-21 so they probably won't be players in free agency that year anyway so the extra year isn't that bad for them. Just a thought *shrug*.

    Time to ditch Vuch and Fournier and hand the keys to Gordon moving forward?

    I like our young core and I'm glad we fought for the playoffs instead of tanking for another draft pick.

    AG is solid and still very young. I like our core moving forward. BIGF is going to create havoc in a few years. MCW seems like a nice fit if the money works. Let’s keep Ross if $ is right, Wes and Martin is intriguing, but need more of a sample size on Martin and of course Burch.

    Yeah I was going to get into that before I got into a Twitter argument about that and had to abandon the post. Vuc can't be on this team next year even if he signs for the minimum. Vuc is a crutch that raises our floor but limits our ceiling and having him on the roster actively hurts our development. The reason for this is because with vucevic we play a style of basketball that we will completely abandon as soon as he's gone. The same way Grant and subsequently MCW are bad players but necessary to create our style of play on defense we need a center that plays like we should play in the future even if it's a net negative in talent. If that can be Bamba, great. If he's not ready we need a stop gap that fills that role. But role is important.

    He has to guard Kawhi. Oh Kawhi is probably the best perimeter defender in the league. Guess who he's guarding? How many players play well against him?

    Ya know, sometimes the other team is just better... sometimes, significantly better. Just want to see us keep playing hard

    Our problem in this series is that Toronto has good players and our players stink
