Default Magic Johnson got his revenge on the Lakers by scaring Kawhi away due to leaks

So Kawhi got cold feet after hearing all the leaks going on in the Lakers organization via Magic.

Magic leaves with the final laugh!

Welcome to LA

Kawaii Leonard and Boy George!

BS....lakers never had a chance. It was either the clippers (with pg) or he head back to Raptors.

Easy to say that in hindsight. Lakers had the meeting first and it probably went really well, someone leaked it out to the media and that probably played a part in Kawhi not signing with us.

This is verifiably factually incorrect.

Kawhi tried to collude with Durant to LAC before free agency even started and then he went to work on PG.

Kawhi is a fake nice guy.

I'm not saying he's nice, but someone in our organization jumped the gun when the leaks initially came out. Would we have waited until the announcement if the meeting didn't go well?

Either way it doesn't matter, we didn't make any dumb long-term signings in this FA so I'm happy about that, we'll have space to build around AD in 2021 FA.
