Maybe not leaving Toronto, but hitching his wagon to the wrong horse.
This is why management should never let players dictate personnel issues. Kawhi should’ve told the Clippers I’ll join it you get another superstar. For some reason he thought PG would be perfect and it turns out the Clippers gave up the farm for the wrong player. Let’s say hypothetically the Clippers gave the same haul up for a guy like Harden? Or Chris Paul and Harden? They’d be way more competitive. In fact, few teams would’ve turned down what the Clippers traded in the end.
Now the Clippers are stuck with PG and need to come up with some BS pitch to Kawhi as to why he should stick around. After convincing him to stay, they’ll need to trade PG and figure out how to compete with a bunch of teams that are deeper and more talented. If everyone is healthy next season then I don’t see how this current Clippers team can survive vs Utah, Denver, Lakers, GSW, and maybe even Dallas.
I was never big on the guy, however for what it's worth, PG WAS coming off a season where he was a finalist (Top 3 in votes) for both MVP and DPOY.
That, and also PG was not Kawhi's first choice. It was reported that he had attempted to recruit KD first.
