Ngunit hindi natin isinasantabi ang

Due to back-to-back losses that Raptors suffered due to improved Bucks, Philadelphia, and Celtics, Masai Ujiri (president of Raptors) traded in MARK GASOL to help Kawhi Leonard prevent further damage. Being the 2012-2013 Defensive Player of the Year, Gasol, can prevent Antetokounmpo to further the win streak in the East. With 2014-2105 & 2015-2016 Defensive Player of the Year in Kawhi Leonard, these tandems, of course, with the excellent SIAAAAAAAAKAAM and Anounoby, can help get back the Raptors to Top1 of Power Ranking.

For now the most probable team to enter the Finals are GSW v. BUCKS.

We will see if the streak of Bucks can be derailed by the addition of Mark Gasol in Raptors.

If yes, then Celtics and Raptors can get back the right to join in the sweepteak to face the defending champion GSW in the Finals.

---------------------------
---------------------------

PS. If Anthony Davis was acquired by Lakers, GSW would have a serious contender in the West Finals.

In the final six weeks of the NBA 2018-2019 season, there are 5 teams that will fight in the Eastern Conference.

They are the:
BUCKS, 76ERS, RAPTORS, PACERS and the CELTICS.

Their respective power dominations (in regards with the regular season) are:

BUCKS >>RAPTORS

RAPTORS>>CELTICS

CELTICS>>BUCKS

BUCKS/CELTICS/RAPTORS>>76ERS/PACERS

Now their reliability ranking due to Playoff experience are in order:
1) CELTICS - due to playoff experiences of Irving, Horford, and Morris. Also, due to previous season's skills of Tatum, Brown, and Rozier.
2) RAPTORS - due to experiences of Leonard and Mark Gasol. And also due to skills of SIAAAAKAM and others.
3) BUCKS - due to skills of Antetokounmpo, Bledsoe and Mirotic. And experience of Hill and Pau Gasol
4) PACERS - due to skills of Oladipo and Bogdanovic
5) 76ERS - due to experience of Butler and skills of (i am not sure). Is it of Embiid and Simmons?
--------------------------

In the WESTERN CONFERENCE:
I believe, only one team will emerge victorious. And that is GSW.

Now, if you ask me who are the TOUGH contenders, they are in order:
1) ROCKETS
2) NUGGETS
--------------------------

To conclude, the FINALS are still b/w either:
GSW v. BUCKS
GSW v. CELTICS
GSW v. RAPTORS

Pwede.

Like GSW (w/ Cousins), Celtics's only issue is all about chemistry. If they got it, Bucks and Raptors (even at their current rosters) will have no match for Celtics. All the three teams have their respective heroes. We just need to see whose hero is the most consistent to carry the war for them. Is it Irving, Kawhi, or Antetokounmpo?

I believe that initially, he just wanted to go with the Lakers because he felt that it is intriguing if he can setup a rivalry with Boston just like the old days.

However, having learned of this idea by Kawhi, LeBron went there first.

LeBron thought that wherever he goes he will always be the first choice of any team due to his ability (and I agree with that).

And since he got there first, PEOPLE WOULD NOT NOTICE that he's the one that seeks the help of Kawhi. AND SHOULD KAWHI NOT FOLLOW NEXT YEAR, LEBRON WILL BE DOOMED IN LAKERS (may it be whoever his teammates are as long as it is not the old Wade, Irving or Kawhi.)
LeBron is great but he needs a good passer.
That was his true intension of going with Lakers. To have a good passer in Kawhi.

....



I thought that it would be NEXT YEAR that he will be doomed in Lakers. It would be this year pala..?

Ngayon kapag natuluyan matalo at hindi makapasok ang Lakers sa Finals malaking isyu to sa pagiging GOAT ni Lebron.

Since nakadalawa na, apat na talo nalang tanggal na sila this season.

Sure na sibak na Lakers this season. Ingram, Kuzma and Ball all injured. Then ililimit na din daw playing time ni Lebron. Wala na. Kangkong na!

Then, it's a negative chain reaction for Lebron's career. I'm wondering who will be the rosters of Lakers next season.

I guess Kawhi, though really wanted to be in Lakers, would instead choose Clippers or Kings, if not to continue in Raptors (with Durant).

For Irving, I believe he will maintain in Celtics if the team could acquire Davis, which is a big possibility.

Durant has so little probability to go in Lakers but Thompson is highly possible. However, if GSW won the 3Peat I do not see any key player to depart aside from Durant.

Davis is the most possible to be acquired by Lakers because he wanted to be in this tesm. The only question is that Pelicans management has the say where they want Davis to be traded. And Celtics, next season, has the best offer to NOP. Celtics is ready to trade Irving, Brown, Tatum and Rozier for Davis.

I believe there are many good players wanted to play in Lakers next season with Lebron.

The question is, who are they?

Sa Regular Season, may tatlong team na takot ako para sa Raptors, sila ang Bucks, GSW, at Magic.
At nagkataon na kalaban nila ang Orlando Magic sa 1st round. I still believe that Magic will prepare Raptors when they confront Bucks (given the latter gets past Celtics).

It is still GSW vs. Raptors!

Since Celtics already swept Pacers, and Bucks is already 3-0, the second round is already given. And they are the scenario below:

Milwaukee BUCKS
vs.
Boston CELTICS



Philadelphia 76ERS
vs.
Toronto RAPTORS



If Bucks won the fight against Celtics, it is 50/50 for Raptors.
However, if Celtics managed to win, Raptors will be the EAST Champion.
Hence, the fight with GSW is on the horizon.

The EAST teams respective power dominations (in regards with the regular season) are:

CELTICS>>BUCKS

BUCKS >>RAPTORS

RAPTORS>>CELTICS

BUCKS/CELTICS/RAPTORS>>76ERS/PACERS


The above is what I still believe in.
It is just that I am not sure right now with the Celtics >> BUCKS scenario.

Because, the percentage for me right now of Celtics is 45% winnable vs. Bucks which is 55%. It is the same with the odds of Rockets 48% vs. GSW 52%.

Though it has higher possibility that the FINALS will be between:
GSW v. BUCKS
GSW v. RAPTORS

It will always comes down to the hearts of their respective heroes.

That is, of Harden, Antetokounmpo, Curry, Irving, or Kawhi.
And since the title of this page is KAWHI IN RAPTORS. It will be the heart of my idol Kawhi that will win supreme. Just imagining. Hehe..
