    This is true, and I understand it.

    Did he demand out of SA?
    Did he put his supermax in danger?
    Did he exile himself from the Spurs during the season?

    That's a red flag if he was doing it to us. But he did it to get to us.

    That's hisstory, you need to revise yours. Bro.

    SA isn't giving him to us unless they rape us and Magic and Rob aren't going to let that happen.

    But noone is saying we gotta include the kitchen sink.

    You exploit Bron's prime, so that should explain Kawhy now rather than later.

    But we ain't going to be bent over either. A more than reasonable haul for the Spurs is Kuz/Hart/Zu/Bonga/picks and/or Moe, Deng either dumped via a 3rd team or stretched to accommodate the deal. If Deng is part of the deal then they probably dump Pau back to us.

    That is probably the FO's final offer (imho) and the Spurs want BI too. So for now, no deal and we wait...as we should. But ideally give Bron a SmashBro like Kawhi and become a legit contender from the jump. It's either that or likely waste a prime year of Bron by having him run with the kids, while we wait on the 2019lan.

    At this point Kuz + Hart is at least as valuable as Kawhi as far as I’m concerned. Both are poised to break out this year. Kawhi can join us or not, but I’m not giving up anything of value.

    If I’m sleeping on Kawhi then so be it, but I’d rather roll with what we’ve got and tempt him to join us next year.

    They sleepin on you Klaw, but I can't hate on folks wanting to see the kids play off Bron. Should be fun, but I still think you gotta exploit Bron's prime while you can.

    Carter and Kawhi have the same agent I believe.

    Per Sean Deveney of Sporting News:
    Some strong words against Kawhi to Toronto...I'm thinking Kawhi's camp leaked something in response to the chatter.

    Well, Spurs... your bluff was called. Have a Deng + Zubac.

    Mitch Frankel used to be a football agent, that represented Carter. Since then, he's ventured into basketball and his only notable client is Kawhi.

    Interestingly enough, we have Jeff Ayres on our summer league roster...and want to venture a guess who his agent is?

    That center spot seems to be vacant by design...don't it?

    Seems like we have an in, don't we?

    Why am I speaking in riddles when I should be speaking in tongues?
