So, Kawhi’s condition is clearly worse than what we’ve been led to believe right?

What's with this fantasy with Van Fleet. We don't have ANYTHING to trade for him. SMH.

It wouldn't surprise me if him and his uncle were holding his medical files secret during free agency and only the Raptors knew the full extent of his condition.

The only thing that makes me think he's fine is that he signed a short term deal. If he thought his health was an issue he would have signed for max years possible.

Yeah, I think it's more about Ballmer needing something to justify his sitting to the league... I do think he's injury prone and knows it at this point. But it just seems like the 'leaks' we're getting right now about more serious issues, are a result of the heat the Clips are getting about DNPs.

There is a reason why he signed a short contract, when his new contract expires he will qualify for an even bigger contract.

Correct, he reaches the 10yr blah blah blah status :lol: but he wouldn't take risk if he thought his health wouldn't carry him for two years.

No risk when he knows someone will sign him off name value alone.

Pau waived by Blazers... We have enough bigs, but it's hard not to pick him up.

He is totally unbelievable.

Next Lakers vs mavs game will be legendary. The first Luka v LeBron game was great.
USA Celtics in full effect. Amazing chemistry building experience right there for the main core of the team

The Pau released by the Blazers isn't Pau.... He's stayed around about 2 years too long.

They're considering him for a big man coach role, we should be cutting in line for that. It would turn Davis into an even more unstoppable monster is he could learn to pass with his back to the basket like Pau

Id want him as a an assistant coach/player developer. He has a lot to share.
