News and Notes for May 16th

The Playoffs: So Miami and Memphis have moved on to the conference final. This makes only 4 franchises to have yet to play in a Conference Finals. The Raptors being one of the four along with the Clippers, Bobcats and one other team not to reach the Conference Finals.  It stings when you realize the Grizzlies once that Vancouver team that we laughed about.

The latest Raptors’ mess is the simple choice on what to do in terms of Bryan Colangelo’s future. It has been just about a month since the Raptors season came to its conclusion and still we wait and wonder about who will be the G.M of this team. My partner on This Week In Raptorland Josh Lewenberg wrote a great piece on this whole situation go give it a read here.

Demar’s Shoe Game: Demar DeRozan is in the running to win an award. For his shoe game which is apparently cool. I have never been much of a sneakerhead myself. Even I notice some of the stylish kicks that Demar has sported through out the year. Here is an article making the case for him being the King of kicks from Nice Kicks .com.

The Draft
: The Raptors despite not having picks are in Chicago checking out the draft combine. Lots of rumours about teams looking to get picks, including the Raptors apparently but don’t believe the hype.  I would doubt this rumour has much base given the Raptors current cap situation. The Raptors still have to see if they end up with a pick via the draft lottery first of all. There is no question it should be a buyers market for picks in this draft. Most will be more interested in next season’s draft class expected to be topped by Andrew Wiggins who earlier in the week choose to take his great talents to Kansas.

It is a holiday weekend coming up so make sure to have fun and be safe. Will start are search for DNB Staff shortly after that.
