Default Kawhi Not Breaking a Sweat in the Playoffs; What Does It Say About the East?

He beat the 2014 Heat by a RECORD MARGIN and was a freethrow away/Ray Allen jumper away from beating them in 2013.

He goes out East WHILE RECOVERING from a mysterious lower ankle injury only to SLAUGHTER the ENTIRE conference like dumb sheep. Part of me feels terrible.

Below is a clip of Green and Kawhi laughing about how easy it's been



Another Sheepish, Sweatless, Introverted grin.



Will he stay in the East due to how EASY it's been or will he go back to the West and play amongst men...where he belongs?

Will he continue to stay in the East, nurse his injury, and treat this part of his career like Rehab WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY beating up on scrubs??

If Kawhi stays, what can realistically be done about his wrath on the SUPERSTARS of the East like Ben Simmons, Embid, Butler, and presumably Giannis?

Lacks match ups at the 3, and Vince Carter's all star years were similar to his North Carolina alum MJ and how he treated Kwame Brown.

Remember when LeBron hit the jumper in his mouth in game 7 to seal the championship



Good memories

That's a huge stretch. That shot was wide open because they wanted him to take those, it took him 5 games to get there, so credit to him I guess.

Why does Kawhi look like he's always warming up in every game out East?

At this point, is it fair to have him in the Eastern Conference? Ethically??

He had to call for a screen to get the shot off. He struggled all series scoring one on one against kawhi. It's a nice shot but hardly in his face
