He was too tentative for my taste, but as the season progressed he got a bit more aggressive. All I do know is when he was on the court I saw more pluses than minuses.
Some will say I'm bugging, but to me he's more untouchable than KP (to me)
Question...IF NY got in the top 3 and were in position to draft Ayton or Bagley, wouldn't you look to move KP and Lee for Kawhi? In that scenario I'd move KP in a heartbeat for Kawhi....I believe it would be easier to find a stretch 4-5, than an all world defensive wing and then pair him with Kawhi?? Hell, Kornet can damn near do what KP does
intriguing prospect. both players have serious injury history. one's a little older, but is a prime legit star.
thing about a kawhi/KP trade is window. even with that group would the knicks have a win-now team? i'm not sure. i like the idea of KP recovering completely and the knicks taking another year or two to focus on youth development into a prime core that came up together. i like KP and frank as parts of that. if we end up with mikal bridges, i'm geeked.
