Literally nobody knows anything, all we can do is wait. But I'm impatient.
In Rambis we trust
Yeah yeah. He's just screwing with us and gonna stick the fork in tomorrow. Thanks Magic.
Oh man..forgot about that. I had to go watch the whole thing again...classic!
This Windhorst guy on espn really doesn’t know anything. At this point, after reading Mr. Rambis, I’m convinced nobody on espn know anything about Kawhi’s decision making process. Same for those Laker Twitter people like Arye, and ALL of Lakers Reddit. Ok, here’s my truly uninformed guess: Uncle Dennis wants the AEG/NB cheddar for Kwahi, but Kwahi is truly undecided from a basketball players perspective. I think he’ll wait until at least Thursday to decide.
I read an article awhile ago [Ill try and find the link again] about the corrosive effect sneaker (and other endorsement) deals are having in the NBA. The best players are drafted by the worst teams, and handed huge sneaker deals, in addition to their lottery contracts. Why care about joining a winning team when you can earn so much just from wearing shoes. And when their rookie deals are extended, players can spend 8 or 9 years on a losing team getting very, very rich. Even worse, it gives shoe corporations power to shape the NBA by telling players what cities to play in, if they DO want to move as FA whether those teams are the best or not. Don’t sign with Memphis,or No new shoe deal for you. Now Kawhi truly seems the antithesis or all this. Sure, he’s with NB, but if that was all that mattered, he would already have signed with the Knicks, Bulls, or yes, Lakers. It’s not JUST his off court income stream that matters to Kawhi, it’s everything. Toronto, at least for one season, gave him everything.
Agreed. From what I gather, Uncle Dennis has been pushing for the Lakers and all the financial possibilities.
If it is true, it really helps us out to have someone like him in the inner circle pushing for the Lakers.
That’s exactly it, none of them know ANYTHING. Cris Carter is probably the most reliable. Cuffs simply because of the LeBron connection.
It’s what makes Leonard one of the most intriguing FAs.
Kawhi’s sister two weeks ago have been liking a lot of Lakers and Raptors comments on IG.
Last couple days including most recent one yesterday has been just Raptors....... something or nothing
Chris’ former agent is Kawhi’s agent.
I believe this is probably what’s going on right now too.
Kawhi probably actually likes Toronto, and wouldn’t mind resigning there. But part of him wants to go back to SoCal to be closer to family, and Uncle Dennis clearly wants him to land with the Lakers so he’s pursuading him as much as possible to go back home.
Yet Kawhi remains undecided so he goes to all 3 meetings as originally planned, with a open mind. He will make his decision when he does, but as of this morning... flew to Toronto with a open mind.
So does that mean the Raps failed this unfounded completely media driven loyalty test?
Hey Kawhi hurry up, even the ball boys are going off the board. Lol
Ballmer sure did waste a lot of money
Meanwhile Carter is basking in that (Cali) sun haha..
this is nothing compared to the dwight thing
that **** dragged on for what felt like a year
I have a bad feeling that he’s going to stay...but who knows in 2 hours that can change.
Just want this to end already.
From the look of our coverage (by the media) Jeannie didn't spend a single cent
But there’s only like one comment about the Raptors in the picture you just posted...
