So where's the shot? If we're talking about him liking Bayless's tweet, who's to say he didn't like it because of Bayless showing his appreciation?

Seems like a reach here.

Isn't this a bit disingenous. Bayless thanked Parker as such Parker can like that portion of the post.


80% of that tweet is Skip taking a shot at Kawhi and comparing how Parker and Kawhi handled their injuries. Parker liking that tweet after he himself compared his and Kawhi's injuries last year definitely has a connection imo.

I'm sure only Raptors fans it this way with rose-colored glasses on.


Explain how it's a reach. He liked a tweet taking a shot at Kawhi. Considering his previous comments it's not a reach at all.

Kawhi gets proven right more and more every day.

Regardless of what 80% of that tweet is, Skip directly refers to Tony Parker, and thanks him for his service. Tony Parker probably has a lot of things going on in his life and just liked Skip's tweet without thinking much into it. I mean, are you guys this sensitive to everyone around you as well? Like if this was your friend, you would go on a rant about how **** up it is?

Do you really think that what Parker did should warrant a discussion about him taking another shot at Kawhi? I mean, is this the kind of society that you like where we get hyper sensitive about liking a tweet that directly addressed and thanked him?

Seems to me that he liked it because someone thanked him for a wonderful career. This is a reach to me. To each their own kiddo.

The tweet barely addresses Tony... It's just a shot at Kawhi


Barely addresses Tony... umm sure, if you ignore the first half of the tweet. Hardly a surprise, since Raps fans are used to ignoring half of the facts when it comes to Nephew.

It appears that some raptors fans don't understand that that's Skip Bayless talking to TP, not TP saying something himself... I guess they are not that smart.

I can't see into Tony Parker's mind and neither can you. NBA players are held to a different standard from fans when it comes to social media. Obviously people read more into their social media actions. If Parker didn't agree with the part of the tweet that took shots at Kawhi, the he shouldn't have liked it. This is not a good look for him, since it allows people to draw their own conclusions.

i really dont care one way or another...but i guess people do since there is history there. this surely does not help his case

No, but I am giving him a benefit of a doubt. And you are not. And I would like to live in a society where more people shrug this kind of thing off, but apparently you don't.

Raptor fans you are a game away from a title. Give the crying a rest for a minute as well as the need to play victim all the time. Its a like.

But let's assume the worst possible scenario and get outraged. :crazy:

:lol: Are some Raptor fans really so pathetic that they seize on Tony liking a Skip Bayless tweet as some sort of actual evidence that the Spurs tried to force Kawhi to play injured? Jesus guys, your team is in the finals. It's getting sad. Rule of thumb: if you're rushing to a message board to post a screenshot of a grown man's likes on instagram, maybe take a second to reassess your priorities.

For the 1000th time this week, the problem was that Kawhi isolated himself from the team and cut off communication, even BEFORE the comments Tony made. No one on the Spurs questioned the legitimacy of his injury.

What about taking things into context when remembering his comments, "my injury was 100 times worse"?

I know it's hard watching Kawhi right now but try to look at the whole picture
