99% sure he was going to Toronto. Lmao

At least he owned up to the fact that he was wrong, unlike all the other "insiders" who wrote the Clippers off.


I think Brussord said the Clippers were out. LOLOL

I was pretty much on this thing as much as you can be with zero info. Always trust content from TVD. :D


The delay was good news for us, as they were completing the trade for PG. Kawhi wanted to be back home in LA, didn't really want to join LeBron, his heart really was with the Clips, and he DID shock the basketball world.

It's the hardest pick of the 3.

--Toronto is a known quantity and still a contender. But it's a foreign land.
--The Lakers are in LA, and joining them makes them the automatic favorite. But it's LeBron's team.
--The Clippers are still a star short of being a top contender. But the org is fantastic, it's in LA, there are GREAT guys like Pat and Lou, and Kawhi can be Kawhi here.


C'mon, Kawhi, shock the basketball world! The other two choices are soooo boring... :roll:

I'm still giddy off this sh*t! Its the talk of the town right now. Lob City was nothing like this. It just feels different. Laker fans are tryin' to laugh it off but you can feel that shakiness in their tone of voice. That braggadocio confidence ain't really hittin' like it normally does. :lol:

Well, we haven't won anything yet but you could say we EARNED this. Sterling didn't earn the trade that brought us Chris Paul and if we "earned" Blake it was because we were the worst team in the league.

So it's OK to enjoy it, bro. Best owner, best FO, a championship coach who created a 48-win team out of NBA rejects. Pat, Lou, Trezz are still here, the best bench in the NBA. Built from the ground up instead of the Lakers' top down.

No doubt, we still have to do it on the court. This is just phase one

Best wing defensive duo since Jordan and Pippen?

I said earlier in the year I would listen if Cryrie was interested and if he was coming as a #2 co-star. Turns out Kawhi thought the same.

It’s very odd to see that PG is looking like Kawhi’s Plan C or D.

If he truly was a Plan C or D, maybe Kawhi should have just signed outright and trusted that Trent, Mike, and the Logo would efficiently use our assets to get him PG or another star.

Would have taken some of Presti’s leverage away.

Does anybody still feel like this is a dream? I'm still on cloud nine 3 days later.

I had posted that hope when I guessed the delay was in the Clippers' favor, but as much as it did turn out that Kawhi's heart was with the Clippers, he also decided he just couldn't go through what he just went through with the Raptors, carrying that team single-handedly.

He was exhausted, physically, mentally, spiritually. Just couldn't face it again. That's why he wasn't playing the Lakers--despite his misgivings, he was gonna go there if the Clips couldn't pull it off.

I went to New Balance today to buy a pair of shoes! They didn’t have anything like this! But I made sure that my wife and I got new shoes just because everyone said he’d sell more shoes as a Laker.
