I wouldn't bet on it! an_burn_money

I hope not Bob! If Masai Ujiri can't resign Kawhi as a Raptor then I'd rather him go to the LA Clippers. I've always admired this Lakers organization growing up in the seventies right through to the Kobe Bryant era but I don't respect what's going down now with this store bought talent just to appease a 35 year old basketball player that's on a career downturn whether fans want to admit it or not. I hope it blows up in the Lakers face, it will look good on them! an_bomb

Either way thank you Khwai Leonard for leading the Raptors and Canada to its first NBA championship without you no way in hell this happens. He doesnt owe the Raptors or the fans anything he has told everyone from day one what he wants. He delivered a NBA title in one year that's just EPIC! 
It just baffles me how Fakers fans think that Kawhi who is clearly better than LBJ and better than AD and has won 2 titles with 2 different teams/2 MVP's of the finals is willing to take less than a max money to join a team and be 2nd/3rd option.  Fakers offering him less than max $$ is Complete dis-respect. Any team with LBJ will be an LBJ team.  Kawhi is proven winner already and has beaten LBJ in the finals for a title.

And made James look like a fool when he was with the Heat!

I'd be okay with Kawhi going to the Clippers because I followed the franchise in the seventies when they were the Buffalo Braves with Bob McAdoo, and Randy Smith. Besides they haven't won an NBA Championship in 50 years.
  Well, maybe he should stay in Toronto and help the Leafs.....besides, they haven't won a Stanley Cup in 50 years!!!

53 years in 2020 but who's counting.an_roll_laugh

I just about spit the sprite outta my mouth laughing. In Toronto they had to close the subway station cause to many people were coming out and the stations were full.

That's what happens when you spend more on way too many public sector employees in the City of Toronto than investing on much needed infrastructure like subway extensions but it doesn't surprise me, Mayor John Tory is an incompetent idiot.

Warriors will be fine when everyone gets healthy assuming KD & Klay resigns...an_laughIts not like Kawhi beat a fully healthy Dubs squad like Craptors fans are thinking they did.

So would it be ok if someone in L.A outside of Lakes organization game Kawhi a $30 Million mega mansion after July 6th if he signed with the Lakers for less than the Max?  You can't do that. There are rules in place. That is compensation out side of his NBA salary to influence him.  Sure if they will allow free food at a restaurant or free train pass for a year.  Those are gimmicks..

He's not going to that dumpster fire the Lakers and that egomaniac control freak LeBron James. Poor AD that Lebron schmuck is going to poison that impressionable kid. Hopefully if Kawhi does leave Toronto it's the LA Clippers but why leave a dynasty in the making we can repeat! We the North!! win

Hey fab how much pressure you think Brendan Shanahan, Kyle Dubas, and Mike Babcock are under by MLSE to deliver a Stanley Cup for the Toronto Maple Leafs? It's only been 53 years since 1967 but who's counting. an_roll_laugh
