If the team is ok with it, why do you care?

 

Of course they aren't going to have an issue with it; They're on the same side. I see why the Bucks had an issue because it was distracting for them and they were on the opposing side of all of this. Though I'm not sure if the NBA cared about it... the Warriors don't seem to take issue heading into the Finals, so that's okay.

 

I'm just on the mindset of being as fan, trying to have fun but not looking like a total dick. I'm also looking at the boundaries in where a fan should be and where a player and staff member should be on the sidelines.

Actually, he is a staff member. 

 

Are you talking about him being a minority owner? I don't know what else he is.

He is a "team ambassador" and has been since 2013, plus his company sponsors the Raptors practice facility.

Well, the Tillman Fertitta is fed up already.  First, Dork Elvis puts everyone up for trade and today Fertitta really wanted D'Antoni to quit and start over.

Warriors are playing like a team that’s had nine days off. Problem is, Toronto has missed a ton of shots and hasn’t capitalized. They should be up by more than four. 

 

Kawhi already looks a bit hobbled, too.

I don't care if it goes 4 or 7 as long as the games are competitive.

Raptors have moved the ball GREAT so far this game. Warriors look rusty, slow, and still sort of asleep. In other words, they’re playing like they always do. Gasol is definitely proving to be a bit of a headache for Golden State.

It's the Warriors. They could lose game 1 and then reel off 4 straight. Nobody would be surprised.

Lead is nice. But please don't choke.

Marc Gasol 3's got the early lead.  He made the open shot; even one which he shuffled his feet on the arch.  Warriors defense with these lesser players over 24+ minutes is again showing.

Raptors have to keep this 10 point barrier between themselves and the Warriors to win this game.

But the Warriors don’t need KD.

They got a different All-NBA player back tonight.

 

EDIT: I missed the first half and most of the third. I don't think any lead is ever safe against the Warriors. You've got to be up by 15 to be marginally comfortable against them. If Danny Green starts hitting threes, it will be huge for Toronto. Siakam is turning into a special player this playoffs.

 

I'll say this -- I'm among the biggest LeBron fans there are on this board, but it's nice to see some new blood from the east without all of that baggage. These Raptors are a really fun team.

Cousins isn’t Durant, and is still pretty obviously hobbled. 

 

God damn this Raptors team looks good. 

 

Warriors in 5.

Warriors would have to win 4 straight now.

You know, I wouldn't mind the Warriors passing the torch to a new team. I'm more than satiated with what they have and I'd be thrilled to see a new team win the title.

Do you think that's impossible?
