The All-NBA team selections are good, but maybe not good enough. To me it's not just the lack of rings, it's that he only had one conference finals appearance (which ended in a four-game sweep at the hands of the absolute buzz-saw that was the 2017 Warriors), despite spending most of his career playing with good players. His team that he left basically carried on without him fine and had their best recent playoff run a couple years after he left. We'll see how his legacy ages. I don't see Portland fondly remembering him based on how he left, and for San Antonio he had the impossible task of following Tim Duncan. If nobody is championing him, I'm not sure he has the resume to make it.

Watching Boucher and Dort going at it right now is awesome; two Canadians (both Montrealers) with 17 and 21 points in the same quarter, just going shot for shot with one another. Add in Birch, at one point I think Montreal was outscoring all other players 41 to 6.

Among the most ridiculous stats of all time is this - other than Klay Thompson, in the history of the NBA, no one else besides Steph Curry has had more than three games in their career with 10+ made 3 pointers.

Steph has four such games... this week.

Imagining finishing first or second in the western conference and your reward is a first-round matchup against Steph Curry possibly playing the best ball of his career.

Gillespie has been a nice surprise, another guy who seems like a great fit for the Raptors team culture
