    I’m curious how many superstars sign with the team and do a presser the same day? Lebron signed and didn’t have a press conference until Sept 24.

    This sounds contradictory. You posted today that they contacted the Lakers and they told AEG to be patient and to not discuss what they talked about.

    Announcement friday. Presser Saturday?

    Plus LeBron learned after the first debacle crap they pulled in MIA, not to make a big deal.

    Whereas Kawhi and co. seem to want some fanfare, imo.

    Once again for the last time, he lived in Toronto all season and gave Toronto the last word in the recruiting. His being in Toronto for the end of the week is inconsequential to his decision.

    Also, if the San Diego St Aztecs felt like they lost him during the process, and still landed him, then we can learn from that. Yes we’re the Lakers, but this is the best player in the league at present, if we can allow LeBron James to take his sweet time, we can allow Kawhi Leonard the same as well.

    Bingo, especially that last part regarding his college team’s experience. Don’t think it matters at all if he’s still in Toronto. Also when is the last time a FA had a presser on the day he announces where he wants to sign? Don’t think that’s really happened.

    @LeHova It's not contradictory. I never said the Lakers didn't hear from Kawhi's camp today. I said they are confused because they figured Kawhi would have made up his mind by now after their discussions from days prior went well. Although I don't know what this morning's meeting was about, clearly he did not call them with a decision, hence the recent word about the Lakers being confused as to what's going on.

    Not contradictory, lakers thought they'd hear something by now...so yes they should be worried and less confident.

    Exactly. We don't even know if he is in Toronto for sure. Guys are overthinking this too much.

    It could also be true that the Lakers told AEG to be patient while they themselves are struggling to cope with the uncertainty of waiting.

    the fact that he's taking this long to decide is just kawhi being kawhi

    i don't think its the result of the raptors meeting having some profound effect on him. if that was the case i think he would have announced he was staying by now, especially if his people had called the lakers back for whatever reason. if they had called to say he's staying why wouldn't we have an announcement today?

    Lol Jalen Rose just doubled down on his 99% Toronto take via Twitter just a moment ago.

    I know he has, but I can't remember what he's gotten wrong. I looked into this when he came out with the Kawhi to Lakers tweet.
