Danny Green praises the Toronto Raptors' versatility ahead of 2019 NBA Playoffs

I didn’t like the backstabbing’ Magic Johnson abruptly quits LA Lakers

"There is no greater Los Angeles Laker than Earvin Johnson".

"You really have to buy in and win games", said Leonard. Raptors coach Nick Nurse lauded Ross for his ability to hit tough shots while being well-covered and you can be certain Ross will be out to beat up his former teammates. Other than sharing said arena and city, the Lakers have been the talk of the town for the past couple of decades.

These three would go on to form the core of what would become known as "Lob City". Now, they're searching for playoff success. "I'm looking forward to it".

Last summer the Lakers added LeBron James.

He got into only two playoff games two years ago, when the Cameroon native was still learning the game.

The Lakers would go back to being amongst the NBA's elite, while the Clippers would slide back into obscurity. The Raptors have a lot more going for them than Leonard, however, making them strong favorites to beat Orlando.

Someone forgot to tell the Clippers that they were supposed to be bad. Even all-star centre Nikola Vucevic has played in just one post-season game, in 2012 with Philadelphia.

Marc Gasol, the trade-deadline acquisition whose arrival meant we couldn't ask, on the eve of Game 1 of the first round, Jonas Valanciunas about all those chip shots he missed in the final moments of Game 1 of the second round previous year, said all of that stuff was meaningless.

Man Utd midfielder Herrera: I'll play for big team next season
Herrera joined Man Utd from Athletic Bilbao in 2014 and he has since made 187 appearances for the club. The 29-year-old has now added to rumours of a United exit after stating: "I won't close any doors".

Unai Emery not anxious about Arsenal's away form
Ancelotti has also warned his side against complacency, especially in defence following recent performances. "Our home form is excellent, so I am pretty confident when we play at home", he said .

"It shocked me like it did the rest of the world".

Bower, 57, was general manager of the then-New Orleans Hornets from October 2005 to July 2010, and he also served as the team's head coach for most of the 2009-10 season after the firing of Byron Scott. If the Magic want to stand a chance in this series, they will have to find offense from everywhere including T-Ross, who scored 28 points against Toronto in their blowout win in February. The Raptors had six players reach double figures and finished shooting 50 percent from the floor and 51 percent from the three-point line. The Clippers disagreed, as, they presently have a record of 48 wins and 34 losses, and hold the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoff standings.

The Hornets had won two of the three previous games against the Magic this season, but the Magic routed the Hornets 127-89 in Orlando in their most-recent game February 14. Not quite the outcome the Lakers expected when the season began.

The rookie coach mentioned that he could bring Batum off the bench next season as he did near the end of this season. But, Walton's job status is now uncertain following Johnson's announcement, the report says. Additionally, several players have one-year contracts that will expire. Who will she hire to replace Johnson?

Johnson was named the president of the Lakers in February 2017.

The Los Angeles Clippers have a far different outlook. Turnovers have been problematic at times this season, although the Magic have done a good job overall of keeping turnovers to a minimum. He said this team had some experienced guys, and now it had some other experienced guys, and all of that was good. It was because they lacked the crucial pieces for a deep run. "This team, this organization, has done so much for my career".

"When you gotta make trades, you're not happy", he told reporters during the media session at the Staples Center.

Johnson pointed out that he was forced to sacrifice a lot in the title and was exhausted of being punished by the NBA for speaking to other teams' players or commenting on basketball matters on social media.
