On a conference call, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse says his young children are keeping him busy during all of this. Says he also has a lot more time to connect with his staff on calls. "Seems like we've got a lot more communication going on now."

Nurse still "100% committed to Canada Basketball. Just hopes and prayers that things will be rolling by next summer."

Happy birthday to Raptors' Pascal Siakam, here's to better times for all of us

What an incredible @Hoophall  class. Kevin Garnett, Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant all were brilliant talents. Early KG and Kobe were jaw-dropping. Later they thrived as much with their minds as their prodigious talents. Duncan wasn’t as flashy, but simply dominated at both ends.

Controversial opinion, I know, but KG was always my favourite of the three new HOFers. There had never been a big man like him. It just didn’t seem real watching what he could do in his early days.


Just walked by Raptors in the tunnel. No joke, Greivis was singing “I was running through the 6 with my woes” while pacing back and forth.

Wow. Both teams hold ball for 24 second shot clock violations. Raptors first, then Spurs, in honour of Kobe.

Classic Marc Gasol on getting Finals advice from Pau Gasol: "He was playing Boston at that time and then he played Orlando and third year he played Boston again. What could I ask him, like how to guard Rasheed Wallace?"

Oladipo wipes away a tear and gives a thumbs up as he's wheeled to the locker room. Great player and great person. Truly an awful moment. All the best to him.

Kawhi Leonard decided he didn’t do enough tonight so is up lifting weights.

Richard Jefferson says he's retiring. "Hell of a way to go out."

Lowry on Simmons incident: “I don’t know. I guess he thinks he’s somebody.”
