    Kawhi gives Raptors fans and NBA fans a moment they'll never ever forget with the Game 7 buzzer beater. As of today, I doubt there's a Raptors fan who regrets the trade. I wonder if a moment like...

    Zion or The Brow?

    If the Pelicans were willing to trade Davis for the #1 pick and if Davis was willing to extend with his new team, would you prefer to keep the #1 pick (presumably for Zion), or would you trade it for...

    I don't think "Why has he lost so much momentum?" is a fair question, honestly. He got to 43% of the vote because the race narrowed to Hillary and Bernie. Some of those votes were "I really like...
