Default Kawhi u either want to join lakers or not

This shouldnít take this long other than he was known but wants to makeup look really difficult to leave Toronto this saving a little face. I mean your from area you can make more money with endorsements play with better players with chances of building a dynasty. What is not to like other than your not the man by yourself? I mean this sh!t looked like a wrap on Monday now 48 hrs later itís still dragging on and lakers looking like chumps if they miss out on Kawhi plus other top role players they could of had.

Especially when the narrative going in was now much he wanted to be a Laker and heís from LA and blah blah blah.


Letís be honest. The dude is conflicted and it may not be a good outcome for the Lakers here.

Let’s be honest. The dude is conflicted and it may not be a good outcome for the Lakers here.

Kawhi passing on the Lakers was never the problem and in itself does not mean anything. The Lakers, health endurance concerns aside, could have almost guaranteed a title this year had they filled the roster out properly.

The problem was the Lakers waiting a week on his decision only for literally everyone else on the market to be scooped up and then ALSO NOT get Kawhi.

The Lakers could have potentially done something like pick up Beverly, Redick & Lopez... instead they'll be stuck with signing a bunch of guys that are minimum level contract guys, and they'll have to overpay them because of the salary cap floor... granted, it'll be 1 year deals, but still.

Could have POTENTIALLY had...

PG - Beverly
SG - Redick
SF - James
PF - Davis
C - B Lopez

Probably only 2 out of those 3, but still... maybe shed Redick and start Kuzma... that's still an insane lineup...

Exactly that. Which is why this entire situation is mind blowing to me considering they even traded away pieces to free up cap for this guy.

For him to turn around and decline would make the Lakers look foolish here. I thought for sure they landed him considering how long they were waiting on making moves but now Iím completely unsure what is going to happen. It just seems like he legitimately doesnít know what he wants to do.


This is a calculated high risk move.

Dude shut the **** up you're just as big of a LeBron fan as me, you lacking self awareness moron.

Literally 2/3rds+ of your posts are about LeBron. I might be underselling it.

Cousins on the cheap ok with McGhee would be nice one two punch at center. Morris would be nice Danny Green would be Very nice. Iggy and Quinn cook along with Korver. That would be wish list.

Not fair.
