The mods must be saying, "The hell with it..." and are just letting people vent.


Some mods are laissez-faire, some mods peddle conspiracy theories and won't allow religion and politics (!) on the board - they come in all shapes and sizes.

Sadly, that was my first thought as well. Obviously this is far better for us going forward than Kawhi going to the Lakers but yeah. Middleton being paid more than Kawhi...lol.

-Team had peaked and they weren't close enough to contend, not a bad time to rebuild
-PG asked for a trade and they didn't want to deal with the distraction it would bring dragging it out (see AD/Lakers)
-They got a king's ransom because the Clippers had to make a move to get Kawhi, they likely wouldn't have gotten a better deal waiting


Paying the luxury tax to field the declining roster they had built no longer made sense with the competition in the West only getting better. Definitely a King’s ransom too as you said.

Some team is going to get suckered into taking that Shroder contract. Wouldn’t be shocked to see him in Dallas, they’ve been playing up this whole 2021 FA thing and he expires that season. That team is also lacking guards.

Midds is a 5 year contract vs Kawhi’s 4...this type of comparison is silly

I’d love it if Kawhi came out and said he hated the Drake

Does the fact that it's more per year AND a year longer make it a better deal or something?

Not at all, but the per year is a hell of a lot closer than 36m

That and Kawhi couldn’t have even done 5 with the Clips

Where the hell does Westbrook fit? I could see a dumb franchise like Charlotte or Phoenix trading assets for him but a playoff team? Not really.

People keep saying that but Kawhi is now on a much better team then the one he would of had if he went to the Lakers.

The "this is great for parity since he didnt go to the Lakers" is one of the most asinine drums that people all over realgm are now beating. PG13/Kawhi/the rest of the Clippers roster is a MUCH better team then Lebron/AD/Kawhi + a bunch of scrubs

LeBron and AD are top 7 players. PG and a bunch of role players isn't better than that + a ton of vets.


Lakers looking like they'll have a decent rotation now with these pickups.

I will be quite surprised if the Finals are not played at Staples Center next year.

Hope we're there, too.

Just caught up this thread - wow... biggest blockbuster in league history? Clippers have so many quality players around PG and Kawhi. Crazy loaded.

The return Presti got is absurd. Gallo + SGA + 5 first rounders?!

Also, not gonna kill Raps fans. They got a ring fair and square. I am jealous. If Giannis brings us a title in the next two years and leaves I could give a crap.

Giannis winning and leaving is a whole lot different to a guy who got traded to you against his will doing it...

Keep telling yourself that.

PG13 was a top 3-5 player last year and they actually have a legit PO team surrounding them. Kawhi is on a MUCH better team then he wouldve been on with the Lakers
