Hate to say it but Kawhi is gonna resign with the Raptors. I don't know how you can walk away from that moment.

Let’s wait and see.
Kawhi specifically asked to be traded to the Lakers before Pop stuck it to him and sent him to Canada.
Hes giving everything he has to the Raptors and that’s noble. He’s a true professional.
But maybe his heart is in LA and with the Lakers.

Looks like Kawhi is emotionally attached to the North after that shot...I'm hoping now for Giannis to break their hearts...to keep the dream alive...

That may be true.
I still think that his stronger emotional attachment to SoCal is the differentiator in his decision this off-season even if the advance to the Finals.
I just hope he doesn’t chose the Clipps.

Karma.

Thank you Reggie Jackson, I mean Terry Rozier. Danny boy has lost a ton of leverage since the trade deadline. Imagine if Kyrie really does walk in July.

So Knicks saying they're going to try to trade Zion for AD... Obvious move, especially if they know KD is on the way...

Also, AD alone is probably more attractive than Ball/Ingram/Kuz... That said, how does it work financially?

And it sort of changes things for us... Makes getting Kawhi basically a must... Because we've seen what Kyrie/LeBron and almost an ideal supporting cast can do, already... Which was contend but not really have enough to get past GSW...

Now if we're looking at KD/AD/?... In the East...

IDK... I just think LeBron/Kyrie isn't going to get us where we want to be unless Ingram and ball make big leaps.

No to Kyrie.

If we strike out on both Klay and Kawhi, no problem.

We have Ingram to start at the two as an elite defensive SG, and who’s gonna guard him on the other end?

Ball, Ingram, LBJ, Kuzma, (Vucevic?)

I have a feeling Pelinka and his Rob Lowe face will get what he wants from Linda and Jeannie, whether he asks for it or not. He’d better produce a few unicorns and a Pegasus and a Bigfoot this summer. He potentially just cost us West just by being here. Let’s hope all the bad judgment left with Magic but I still think our GM should be mentored in the art of franchise building before building our franchise.

Someone like logo would be good. Ryan West?

Brook Lopez makes me so sad everytime he hits a 3
Perfect center for Lebron
Oh...how many lakers fans were trashing him "he cant rebound" "he's too slow"
How wrong you were!

Letting him walk for $3M might one of the dumbest all time decisions.

Jeanie and Jerry dont like each other. We were never going to try and he was never going to want to come back with her in charge.
