They’ll make it work, it’s about the timing of the Ad trade, they will figure it out, it’s the Lebron and the Lakers, teams throughout history have helped them win titles..this will be the same..


LOL....Kawhi doesn't want to play second fiddle to AD or Lebron, when he proved he could lead a team by himself. He's not going to the Lakers that's for sure.


He’s proved he can do it by himself. Maybe now he’s looking for a lesser role or more help for himself. There is no proof that Lebron is better the Kahwi at this stage of their careers. So Lebron if anything could end up being the 2nd or even third best player on the Lakers.

Kawhi doesn't strike me as a bitch who would lower himself and sign with the Lakers to be LeBron's lackey.

I see him in an almost Giannis type offensive role. Surround him with shooters that play defense.
If you can't shoot and play D, you're expendable.
Compile as many draft picks as possible, and draft and sign players that fit this profile. As long as we don't overpay anyone, the future is bright.
That said, the only free agents I would give a max to are Kawhi, KD and Klay, otherwise just keep building around our 2 studs.


The only thing keeping me from this is signing Kawhi. If we can get Kawhi then i have zero problem with going the free agency route this offseason and bringing a J.Butler, Kemba or a few other names with him. Now i'm realistic enough to understand and have understood that the percentage of us getting him is lower then the 14% chance we had to get Zion but until he's signed with LA or whoever i'm gonna keep that dream alive.

If we don't get Kawhi then i am absolutely fine with staying the rebuild route and if these guys can make the right draft picks and signings, especially the draft picks, then in 2-3 years we can have a really good young team full of good/great players and have a ton of money to again look the way of free agency with the big names.

What we would also obviously need is for the young guys we have now to keep getting better and that's obviously K.Knox, Mitch, DSJ, Frank, Dotson and Trier and whoever else i left out. Mitch just needs to work on his offensive game because i have no worries about his defense and this really goes out to Knox more than anyone else. We need you to get better Knox. We need effort on defense and to work on other parts of your offense other then just your shooting.

We weren't gunna give the farm plus future barn with no other star currently here so get over it. It would of been bad even with a star committed with ll this cap space to me anyway.

I hate to say this, but we’re still much much much more likely to sign Durant than Kawhi. Nothing has happened in the last couple of months to shift that probability in any meaningful sense.

It’s good to give up a ton of assets and do it in a slapdash kind of way.
