The legend of kawhi is ridiculous. He’s a top 5-10 player sure. But last season the hype was absurd to me. He joined a 60 win team, they played a golden state team missing half their team. Not even just a player like dragic lol, Durant and klay Thompson if I remember. And curry was hobbled.

Kawhi leaves and the raptors have a better record than the clippers lol

It’s simple really

Lebron left the East, the raptors who were in the ecf with derozan replaced him with a better player in kawhi and they got to face a depleted golden state

He’s not this Mount Rushmore player. There are blatant facts being unspoken. And unspoken this year. As if kawhi didn’t enter a 60 win team and coast through a depleted eastern conference with the most talented non golden state roster. Put giannis or James harden on the raptors and they’re probably champions last season.

Btw I’m not so sure lebron doesn’t lead the lakers to the nba finals
Last year if he doesn’t get hurt. They were 4th in the nba, guys were starting to gel, and golden state crumbled healthwise

He is a great player but not a legendary player like Kobe/LeBron. I lost alot of respect for him because he wanted load management before he even turned 30. Imagine Kareem asking Pat Riley he needed load management. Crazy times we live in...

Kawhi comes around every generation. He’s a great player that when it’s all said and done people will be like oh ya kawhi was a great defender and that’ll be that. Think Gary Payton, or David Robinson (who was probably better)

Lebron is someone that defined American professional sports for a new generation

AD is the most transcendent talent since Durant and before him lebron

I remember the big point of contention when choosing between AD and kawhi was kawhi was this winner and AD was a loser

Put AD on the raptors last year and kawhi on the pelicans lol. I just know you would’ve seen AD holding up a trophy last season and kawhi bounced out of the 2nd round at best maybe miss the playoffs

Idc what anyone says dude is not a #1 offensive player. He had Lowry and siakam both of which are outstanding on ball offensive players. What makes kawhi top 5 is that he’ll give you 25-30 and lock you up. That’s unique

But I think the kawhi stuff was out of hand lol. I’ll stand by that opinion till the day I die that if you put kawhi on the bucks and giannis on the raptors the raptors would have swept the bucks

Kawhi Leonard says he wasn’t talking about a point guard when he told Clippers he wants a new PG, sources tell ESPN.

Norm Nixon... I think he burned us for 25 points in the first half the first game he played us after the trade.

In this video is a little bit of analysis at how offensive mastermind Ty Lue can help the Clippers next season (will be interesting, defensive Vogel vs offensive Ty Lue)

These are great plays indeed. The one thing I heard the Clippers need is a point guard because the plays in the video involved LeBron whether directly or indirectly.

Having a player that can move the ball in these situations will be key and they don’t have anyone on the team that does this that well righT now.

Yea, I had to stop when he said "you can imagine Kawhi here" in regards to LeBron making the pass.

Why do we even care what the Clippers do? Good luck to Ty Lue, he was a former Laker role player, and he is a decent coach. But I never wanted him that bad on the Lakers, felt it would be the Lebron Cavs 2.0 and they showed the last few years that they were too defensively challenged. When Luke was our coach I felt the same, the defense just wasn't there. Lue to me is the same, the last few years with the Cavs his teams played little to no defense most of the season.

If Clips win one, great. If they don't, even greater. They are irrelevant. They thought they would one up the Lakers and take over the city during a time where people were speculating that Jeanie and the Lakers post-Dr Buss just couldn't get it right. There was real doubt in some (if not most) Laker fans about Jeanie and this org. So when you had the Clips positioning of a year ago, it gave the Clips a chance to do some damage to the Lakers fanbase.

Mamba passes away, and the entire city unites and remembers the greatness and legacy. Lakers unite and they were already #1 in the West pre-Mamba passing, and then they go win it all quite easily, really, considering we did not even go 7 games once or really ever be in position where we felt a series was out of control. Meaning, they once again show what they're capable. We are the Yankees of the NBA. We do this (bleep), again and again. No more questions.

If the Clippers up and win one, it's good for them. But that's still gonna put them 16 behind. But the fake rivalry can be good motivation for a Lakers potential repeat. I want the Clippers to come at the Lakers again, because it may give the Lakers some extra motivation for next year.

My analysis on them was that while Lue is not different from Doc. I think Doc trusts Lue a ton and has been working (mentoring him) since the Boston run. So Lue and Doc are not all that different, the way I see it. If the Clips wanted changes, they did not make a big one from going to Lue. The other thing is when I saw them play, and I see their current roster. Their main weakness remains. They do not have enough defense in the middle of the court under the basket. Once you can get the ball inside on them, their defense is very easy to break down. Happened all RS to them, and then again, in the playoffs. I don't think Doc was the issue with that team, even though he is very overrated as a coach. I also don't think Lue will be able to solve their main weaknesses. 1) Health of Kawhi 2) Lack of interior play

If Kawhi can regain health, and they make some moves to get their roster more interior based, they can win one.

As I've said elsewhere, it's understandable that this is a hot button for the folks who live in or around LA. They have to deal with Clipper fans and people stirring the pot on talk radio. I respect that. But for those of us outside of the area, it's a little odd to see so much vitriol aimed at the freaking Clippers.
