The baseball game was against the Reds... the Reds play in Ohio... the Cavs wear a darker RED uniform color (they call it wine, we all know it's burgundy, you jerks)... KAWHI is getting TRADED to CLEVELAND for the NETS pick!

He spent the season rehabbing in NY. Kawhi to the Knicks. Confirmed.
He wore a tan hat. Kawhi to the Lakers. Confirmed.
But he's not a free agent and doesn't have a no trade clause. Confirmed. 😂


I love the reset. Appreciate it too. More on keeping a healthy perspective.

Close friends in NYC were going gonga when the news hit regarding Kawhi's time in the city. Sometimes, it's stuff like that reminds me to step back from the daily Laker drama and look around a bit. We can lose appreciation for where we as fans and where the club here has been for a scant five or so years. Knicks fans have lived the irrelevance nightmare for, what - twenty-plus years ? They've had just one winning season since 2001. The club's most recent championship came forty-five years back.

Yikes. It's sobering to think that similar circumstance could befall Laker central with poor club stewardship. It helps me to remember that the last championship was won in LA just eight years back. The daily Laker new grind can get a little too crazy at times. Reset done.

What is even crazier is that he MUST know how bad this looks, and he doesn't seem to care. If he wants out, he's not really helping other teams feel safe about trading for him, let alone raising his trade value so the Spurs can actually feel tempted to pull the trigger.


is he supposed to just sit home like a hermit all summer?

no big deal


It's not just this, I'm talking about the whole thing... like playing videogames (and posting about it) while his team is getting hammered during game 1 of the playoffs and everything else. Kawhi's not taking care of his image during all of these. Before, he was universally viewed as a super commited, humble and hard working young star everyone wanted to get their hands on. Now? Not anymore...

As if his image today matters. His image will take care of itself when he plays again, wherever that turns out to be. There's probably thirty clubs in the league who will want to have him.

Well I wouldn't like too much because if he ends up there then LeBron is staying in Cleveland.

It matters if he or the Spurs want a trade this offseason. I mean, there’s already enough doubts with his injury

Spurs Resisting Kawhi Leonard Interest


Quote:
Nonetheless, another Western Conference executive said teams are “lining up to try to do something” in the event the Spurs decide to trade Leonard this summer. Through back channels, those teams have gotten the brush-off from the Spurs.

“The Spurs want to try to make things work right now and aren’t interested,” the exec said.

If that’s the case then they are also resisting Philadelphia and Boston’s likely interest. If the Spurs don’t trade him and he becomes a FA, I actually think that is the best case scenario for the Lakers.

That would be the best case scenario. Keep our young core. Sign PG. Re-sign Randle to 4 years 72 million with 2nd year being around 16 million. We can sign KL outright next year.
