  • Raptors swept from playoffs by King James' Cavaliers

Not that you needed any more evidence that LeBron James is perhaps the most dominant force in National Basketball Association history, but if you did, him getting a player like Kyle Lowry-a good player! an All-Star!-to publicly throw up his hands while still in a playoff series against James and admit, "Yeah, nobody is touching this guy" is pretty convincing.

James applauded Tucker's defensive efforts, saying "Any time you go against someone who wants to compete, you respect that and P.J. has been like that since we were kids. he's always been a guy that at the end of day is never going wonder if he left it all on out there and as a competitor I can always respect that".

"This is the best I've seen him play", Ibaka said. "I like the city, I like the fans".

Of course, Lowry is an interesting person to follow these days, as he becomes a free agent this summer.

The remarkable workload that LeBron James has endured over the last seven seasons has been unlike any other in National Basketball Association history and the greatest player on the planet remains as hungry as ever to continue winning titles.

Whether you spent years trying to make the post-season and coming up short or getting eliminated, the taste is bitter, the sting of defeat lingers.

"Man, it sucked", he said.

Only one team is left standing. That is a huge compliment to the impact of James not a shot at a 50+ win Toronto team.

His primary focus this summer is on his kids.

Kyrie Ball: Kyrie Irving took over when the Cavs went behind by one point in the fourth quarter, scoring 11-straight points to give the Cavs a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

The Cavs finished off the Raptors about an hour before Game 4 between the Celtics and Wizards tipped off in Washington. Lowry knew the Raptors' season was over after they lost Game 3 on Friday night, and he was feeling existential afterwards.

"Get our rotations set. and do some things defensively we know we're capable of doing". We take it to six, maybe. You have to go out and earn it.

Tucker was part of championship-winning teams in Europe, experiences showing Tucker that teams find their rhythm and groove en route to a title. Lowry and DeRozan have delivered the best era in Raptors history: the four winningest seasons in franchise history, the first four consecutive playoff berths, the first three wins in a best-of-seven series. "We understand that. We've been in this position before, but we understand there's still a lot to learn, still a lot of things we can correct and get better at".

"I think it should be a situation where a guy shouldn't have to talk to another team", Lowry told The Vertical. Still, DeRozan acknowledged it won't be easy to close the gap on Cleveland.

The 31-year-old was speaking after Toronto's season came to a grinding halt with a 4-0 series defeat against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday.

"They went to him on isos", Raptors point guard Cory Joseph said.

In terms of needs moving forward, DeRozan did offer a suggestion, a logical one given how the Cavs swept the Raptors.

"They're a great team", Tucker said. Why else to play if you're not playing to win?
