Wouldn't surprise me if Kawhi says F@ck LA and comes back if we're able to get Giannis.

I wonder if they've started exploring quietly, they have to know they wont have the cap room at this point.

I got a funny feeling they've been shopping him over the break. The chatter from GS was constant for a bit.

I have to agree. It is looking more and more possible. Masai has done a masterful job of recruiting without breaking any rules.

Uh... it would surprise Me and probably almost everyone else that Leonard would say **** LA. Nah man, never. If he didn’t stay after all that The first time, why would he ever come back. Move on.

9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.

Bucks fans keep telling themselves "Giannis isn't African, he doesn't care about Africa".

To be fair, Masai is a family friend. And he's not really recruiting with his work in Africa. He'd be doing that regardless.

I do appreciate the subtlety though. He isn't sending a small ginger man to stalk Giannis as he enters and exits the change room every game.

Did Greece care about him when he was coming up or trying to get a passport? I thought they didn’t recognize him as a citizen.

I mean...we keep telling ourselves he's coming here.

If he makes it to free agency, we will need Bobby to report the news.

If had 2 shots playing with another "star" in PG and not winning it all, why not team up with old friends and Giannis?

Would the Clippers do a sign and trade of Powell, Matt Thomas and a 1st pick?

PG FVV - TD
SG Kawhi - TD - Watson?
SF OG - Kawhi
PF Siakam - OG
C Giannis - Ibaka

Then he gets the clippers to replace PG. He ain’t coming ever back bud...not even on his radar anymore.

And they never will trade him unless they collapse.
