I can definitely see the Clippers nabbing Gasol or Ibaka, can we do a sign and trade for Zubac?

Glad Lowry isn't a FA, I know damn well Kawhi wants both Gasol and Lowry. LEBRon will end up taking Gasol though to protect AD.

I think Gasol would sign for the mid-level exception so ya that's an easy decision. Ibaka I think is still looking for big money...probably 15-20 million a year.

On the Clippers...I want none of their role players...except maybe Landry Shamet...

"Let Harrell walk. He’s a much better player than he showed in the bubble, but the team needs to show confidence in Zubac. Maybe Marc Gasol or Ibaka as backup center.

We also need a point guard as we rely too much on Bev (always injured/in foul trouble) and Lou (can’t defend). VanVleet would be perfect but there’s no way we can get him. I really don’t know what the free agency options are. Wildcard option is starting Shamet at PG."

I mean if they wanna pull a sign and trade and have masai fleece them as payback I’m all for it. Otherwise they can go **** themselves and enjoy their failure of a franchise

Clips dont have money , or much in the way of assets

i think they bring back Harell and Morris trade Lou and probably call it an offseason

PG trade is the wild card but idk who does that,

This.

This.

This.

This.

But he would've been clutch for us against the Celts , and then Miami. We would have just needed him to coast the 3rd round and chip in here and there the second.

Warriors are coming back next year, with Wiggins at the 3 spot and/or whatever they get with the second overall.

Lebron will have an offseason to master another swindle of a trade.

Denver will have one more season to build off this one.

OKC might just keep Paul and build with him.

Portland will do whatever it takes to destroy Clips.

AND DO NOT FORGET, LUKAAAAAA.

Man, the Clips Window just got a hell of a lot smaller. I don't even know who they can trade at this point to get good players.

Yeah but if Clips lose in the first round next year then Kawhi opts out and he goes to the Lakers. Don’t know if I could stomach an aging Lebron getting a stacked team again so he could ride Kawhi’s coattails to try and catch Jordan. That’s worse than what’s happened now.

Kawhi is not joining LeBron he’s perfectly fine with signing 1+1s to wait out Brons career before going to the Lakers imo

Masai isn't trading with the Clippers after that stalking **** they did last season...just a heads up for you guys thinking that Masai is going to gift wrap Lowry or Gasol/Ibaka to a Clippers team with zero assets

A 31 year old Kawhi with a 37 year old Lebron doesn't scare me one bit.

And honestly, I truly believe that the book is closed on Lebron catching Jordan anyways. Lebrons deserves his own category, that's about it.

I'm not finding joy in the clippers losing.

I am enjoying this Denver team, their heart, fight , will and coach are similar to the raptors

For sure would have enjoyed to see the clippers take apart the Lakers.

My point, doc rivers is overrated:

-Only coach to have 8 losses in game 7, others all at 5 games.

- only coach to lose multiple game 7 - 2006,2015,2020

I heard him speak after they lost to mavericks, this dude was full of it.

Always brought up he didn't know who is starting 5 is, will figure it out as they keep going (what was the season for )

- excuses for injuries and no consistency

- then today, first year playing together as an excuse,
- Denver been together for years and it showed


Over rated PG13:

-Only played together for 1 year
-No chemistry was built

So they had 3 games to win and the reason is the other team played for years together.

Think Williams said we had players coming from different offensive systems, and they expected guys to be standing in different spots

.... what is the coaching staff doing over there?
A whole season and no chemistry




The team we had last season was so special, with or without kawhi the chemistry and understanding was there

A rookie coach was able to get the most and didnt really make excuses.

The clippers team is more talented, doc rivers should be fired.

This was not the same Kawhi from last year. He looked completely defeated in the 4th and quit on the team.

Game 4 Kawhi vs Philly
Game 3 Kawhi vs Bucks
Game 6 Kawhi vs Bucks


He literally took over those games and willed us to a W. But this elimination game 7 against Nuggets, only in the 2nd round too, he literally quit.

I really think he doesn't mesh well with his teammates and probably hates the loud mouths like Beverley, Morris, and Harrell. Raptors were the opposite, hard-working and straight down to business. No drama at all, just like the Spurs. Meshes with his personality better.

I can see him bolting in 2021 and Clippers will be absolutely ****. PG trade will make Billy King look like a GOAT GM. 4 unprotected first round picks plus 2 pick swaps, holy f***
