Dude. Vince Carter played for us in 2004 and there's still at least a dozen threads every year about him.

Kawhi won us a damn championship. We goin' talk, because like it or not, we wouldn't have done it without him.

Kawhi was spotted in L.A. eating Lays ketchup chips while wearing roots shorts! Let's keep all the Kawhi threads alive just incase he changes his mind and comes back... :roll:

Seriously?

He arguably had the best season ever by a Raptor and led us to our first championship.

I know, I can't believe we are still talking about "this guy" who helped bring us our first and only championship after many unsuccessful previous attempts.

Better get used to it because "this guy" will be talked about forever being linked to the Raptors championship run.

Considering the other infamous Raptor players' runs. Considering that Kawhi had one of the greatest playoff runs of any player in league history, and that it was in a Raptor's jersey, and easily the best playoff run by any Raptor's player that eventually culminated to the only championship in franchise history.

You'd be really, really naive to think he's just going to be swept under the carpet, when people have been talking about Vince for 15+ years.

If you feel stress Kawhi at your fake home then you can always return to your real home in 2 years when we get Giannis ^_^

Giannis is not turning down a 254 million/5 year Supermax from the Bucks (the richest contract in the history of the NBA), and Kawhi will stay in LA. Like an earlier poster said- time to move on from Kawhi. Guy always wanted to be in LA, and the only superstar ever who did not want to run it back after winning a ring. Wish him well, but it is time to move on from the Kawhi chapter.

I hope you all enjoyed the moment as advised by Kawhi. I know I did.

He's gone, left us not to defend our title, and conspired around the league to get to LA in the fashion he wanted to. His intentions were never to stay here or embrace the city. I commend him for sound what he does best and just play basketball, but I for one can forget him because he himself barely wants to be remembered here. I mean to each their own if you wanna follow up on him and what he does in the offseason, but let's not act all surprise shocked that people have the sentiment of just let's move on from kawhi.

Thanks once again to his contribution to our Championship, duces

Just like AD wouldn't turn that $ down from New Orleans? I'm pretty sure KD also had the supermax on the table in OKC.

Exactly. Or Leonard wouldn't turn down the extra year or years the raptors could have gave him. You'd be naive to think players don't get paid under the table in this era. Nobody even hides it any more. Raptors have drake to move under the table money now.

Return to Toronto Raptors
