He doesn't have to stay with the Toronto Raptors if he doesn't want to, and he is paid substantially less than DeMar DeRozan. We wanted Pawcho to be both a story and coloring book in one, and at no point did we want the narrative to feel forced or unnecessary.
It was eight minutes of clock time, but the series in microcosm: The Cavaliers absolutely torching the Raptors from distance, and Toronto unable to respond with three-point shots of their own.
The Wizards evened the best-of-seven series 2-2 after the Celtics won the first two games in Boston. Tucker, acquired at the trade deadline to beef up Toronto's front line, are free agents.
"It's on us to let this sink in and understand we've gotta come back better, individual and team-wise", DeRozan said.
And then, after a tougher-than-it-needed-to-be first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks, it all ended so quickly.
Game 4 is Sunday in Toronto. James drained a three over Tucker with 2:54 to play that capped a 14-2 Cavs run. It's a make-or-miss league and the Raptors missed a lot of open shots. Like MJ did in the 90s, he's left several good teams - and some great players - wondering: what if?
James scored 10 points in the third but the Raptors got nine from DeRozan and seven from Ibaka to close the gap.
Spoelstra led the Heat on a huge turnaround - after going 11-30 in its first 41 games, Miami went 30-11 in its last 41 games and wound up losing a tiebreaker for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot. The first two games of the series will be at the higher seeds home court.

Wouldn't the Sacramento Kings love to be where the Raptors are now? While his intention may have been to ultimately end up back in Toronto, this season's discouraging playoff sweep at the hands of the Cavs may change his calculus.
The Raptors fought back gamely in the fourth, actually taking a lead midway through, but this is not a Cavs team that is going to expend any more energy than they have to before the expected meeting with Golden State in the final.
TorontoRaptors coach Dwane Casey wanted his team to play Game 4 with pride.
Lowry said on Monday when asked about what he wants the most. The last three years, in which the Raptors have scored an average of 9.7 fewer points per 100 possessions in the playoffs than they did in the regular season, would tell you that the answer is "no". But that didn't stop Bayless from discrediting James by saying he has way more help than anyone else and insisting he's had an easy road in this year's playoffs.
Opting out of the final year of his contract has been the plan all season long for Lowry.
There are plenty of players who could opt-out of their contracts and become free agents this summer, but most will simply re-sign with their respective teams.
