Toronto Raptors: Serge Ibaka doing best recruitment job with Kawhi Leonard

Magic Johnson cites Westbrook as he shockingly resigns from the Lakers

Hypothetical questions revolving around rotations, playing style, and defensive schemes will be answered tonight!

Although Johnson and Pelinka regularly spoke positively about their relationship and the triumvirate formed with Buss, fact of the matter is they did not have prior experience working together.

"They're playing very well", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said. "His hair flips around a little bit". Look past the "load management" that limited his output to 60 games and he put up one of the most dominant seasons in the National Basketball Association and one of the most complete offensive assaults in Raptors history, as he averaged 26.6 points and 7.3 rebounds in just 34 minutes a game with a True Shooting percentage of 60.6 per cent. Are they a typical 7 seed? Led by Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby and Serge Ibaka, Toronto's depth has been one of its strong suits for several seasons now.

Magic Johnson's shocking resignation as the 16-time NBA champions' president of basketball operations Tuesday night compounded the turmoil that always seems to envelop the Lakers, who remain among the most talked-about sports franchises in the world even though they haven't made the playoffs since 2013. What was behind that, and is there any reason to expect that will change?

"The fines and the tampering and the this and the that, I can't help young men who want me to help them, or I can't tweet out". Now, with the season over and a critical offseason upon them, it will fall on the shoulders of Jeanie Buss to pick up the pieces and get the team back on track. Gordon especially loves to take the challenge of guarding the opponents best player, and Kawhi Leonard definitely fits that.

Jordan Henderson allowed to show attacking skills again, says Jurgen Klopp
The Liverpool forward comes over the top of the ball and clearly plants his studs onto the shin of his opponent. The Brazilian lays it off to Keita and his effort takes a wicked deflection off Torres and nestles in the net.

I think it'll be a challenge. A lot will ride on what happens in the playoffs, but they're on the same page now.

"I couldn't even tweet it out to say, 'Hey, congratulations.' If I had did that, everyone would have said, 'He's tampering.' I don't like that". "We couldn't ask for more in this position right now". Will that trend continue, or is it just a streaky shooter being streaky? "Watching him my whole life, it was everything I thought it would be".

The ultimate test for Siakam will be this post-season, where scouting reports from opposing teams will pay much more attention to the intricacies in his game. Can Orlando sustain that advantage? At the start of the season, no one would have guessed the Orlando Magic would be fighting for a playoff spot, let alone be 7th in the East. Who will run the team? So, ultimately this comes down to how Ross plays.

"I think it's easy for any player to lock in on just one team". The Lakers signed free agent superstar LeBron James to a four-year contract. While many expect Walton will be fired at the end of the season, things might be worse than anyone expected. Complicating matters, somewhat, for Clifford was all-star center Nikola Vucevic and prized forward Jonathan Isaac missing Wednesday's game with a stomach virus and a concussion, respectively.
