We're all just so happy to have him here that we don't care about it. We also didn't really envision a 2nd round exit either.
Guy had the keys to the franchise the moment he demanded out of SAS and had his people floating out that he wanted to come to our franchise.
Stupid Clippers (funny how that works, no matter how good of an FO you get, it's still stupid Clippers) didn't GAF that he already had interest in us. We still had to treat our franchise like a mom cleaning her house when company (Kawhi) was coming over.
Scouts at every game.
$50,000 tampering fines.
A whole 1st round L to the Worriers dedicated to this guy.
Just let him defecate down your throat already.
Yeah, at that point, when that guy says trade everything for Paul George or I aint coming.....you have no choice.
We know so little about this team (given how its come together...another bizarre reason to just be blindly confident), that I’m holding out for them to surprise me (us?) tomorrow and hold on and win.
But I can’t have remorse for a course of action I hated from the jump, every step of the way. I wanted Kawhi. I didn’t want him the way we pursued him.
