D12 and Westbrook seem super happy to be a laker. It's pretty cool to see. Can't wait for the season to start.

Dennis is going to try to be on his best behavior because of his contract, but even then, his true self will come out.
he is no play maker. He will keep the ball and dribble and dribble . he is pretty good at driving to the basket, but he is not an elite shooter and average play maker. He is a reasonable on the ball defender.
Let's see how he reacts the first time Smart yells at him lol

The Clippers will pay $44M per year for load managing Kawhi on the bench. Over the next 4 years, does anyone here feel confident he’ll play more than 50 games per season on average?

So Spero Dedes is now a permanent commentator for the Chargers, you think he regrets not having Billy Mac’s job?

I think Monk. This guy has had problems personally and internally in the past, but I've seen this guy since his Kentucky years, he has got all the skills. And if this guy wants to opportunity for stability and settle down with a career and a franchise. This is the place to do it. Well see if he wants it

Monk is still at his best a 6th man scorer who's a defensive liability owing to his size. If he pops, someone else will overpay for him.

Or, he could be a crucial player on a march to the Finals. In the one game, fans have seen only about half of what Monk can do, and of course, we have yet to see him play with Westbrook. That is going to be something else.

I mean sure, if he can fit into a defensive scheme, he'll have a really high demand because he has all the tools to be one hell of a scorer.
