Afterwards reports came out that kawhi was ok with beal or PG



I thought Beal couldn't be traded until this coming off season?

First calls were to KD and Butler. Kawhi settled for the boobie prize LA team and running mate.

And Kawhi force the trade for PG.



I think if he there were no trades happening he ends up back in Toronto on a 1 + 1. I really can't imagine he goes to the Lakers though.


Raps are old this was their last dance, dont see him returning.

He would be smartest staying 1+1 this year with raps, if they didnt win again he could go to LAC (i think they would make finals at least), now his legacy takes a big hit.

That's what I meant. If no PG13 trade happened, I think he would have stayed to run it back.

The Morris trade is a head scratcher for me. Not because of Morris but because he basically does (worse) what they had two guys doing already. He's a 2-way forward when they needed a guard.

Not our problem. Knicks are happy with the draft selections.

Is it really a headscratcher though when you put it into context, which is that they were competing directly with the Lakers to prevent them from getting the famed "third option"? This is what I'm talking about. They're making suboptimal decisions in an effort to stick it to their hometown team.

All I know is I'm glad NYK was able to get the scraps from Presti's gravy train.

I doubt Kawhi or pg will be there in 2024 or 2025

They're building it right next to The Forum too right?

Crapping on the Clippers when the media crowned them champions is one thing, but to crap on JW is thee most ridiculous thing I've read on RealGM to date! It's because of JW that the Clippers could and should have won. If you think that he isn't responsible for the success that teams have while he's there, then you don't know much about the NBA. Your post would have more success if you titled it, "Doc Rivers is a great coach".

They were already giving them away for free on facebook this season, I can only imagine what they're going to have to do next year.

the point is to bury them right now with negativity. Just pitch in and stop asking questions.
