not necessarily! a virtually kawhiless team with LMA and some others made the playoffs last year. if the deal is to LAL for ingram, kuzma, and lakers find some 1st rounder(s) thats a better team than what we had last year. rebuild on the fly basically.

21st savagery fox (m bison), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:02 (one year ago) link

but i kinda like sending him someplace else and denying the lakers a chance to make a superteam bc fuck that shit, watching the nba would be fucking torture

21st savagery fox (m bison), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:03 (one year ago) link

feel like there must me more there, tho cld just be generalized resentment for whatever

def more there but the underlying theme of having everything very tight and controlled in-house maybe made him feel suffocated. dont think he ever liked playing with LMA either tbf.

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:05 (one year ago) link

yeah if kawhi is like "i will re-sign with only the clippers or lakers" then.........

J0rdan S., Friday, 15 June 2018 18:06 (one year ago) link

When the Spurs trade Kawhi for the #2 pick, the Kings lose Kawhi a year later, and Spurs draft Doncic as franchise cornerstone for the next 15 years <<<

why do people think doncic will be available at 2

ciderpress, Friday, 15 June 2018 18:10 (one year ago) link

uh good point, but seeing kawhi and bron win titles in LAL would rip my damn sports heart out

there are a ton of players in play for #1 tbf

laker hate is evergreen in all our nba-loving hearts (except for among lakers fans, for whom I have no good word)

A is for (Aimless), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:12 (one year ago) link

it wld be kinda funny if the lakers put together a superteam but still got smoked by the celtics who have more than 3 good players

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:14 (one year ago) link

warriors hate is the new lakers hate

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:14 (one year ago) link

feel like warriors hate is ephemeral but lakers hate runs deep

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:16 (one year ago) link

its not the same at all, my lakers hate is abiding, this warriors hate is temporary

xp lmao

21st savagery fox (m bison), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:16 (one year ago) link

Kawhi Leonard isn't concerned about missing out on the supermax, sources tell ESPN. There's a feeling of betrayal that at this juncture, appears irreparable.

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:17 (one year ago) link

If Kawhi Leonard does become available in trade talks, the Boston Celtics will be interested in probing the Spurs about a deal, league sources tell ESPN. Boston inquired about a trade prior to the February deadline, sources said.

honestly...if the spurs weren't going to get lebron (narrator: they werent), their title hopes were pretty dim anyway...not paying someone a supermax and possibly getting some young stars in return could be a good setup but idk man

21st savagery fox (m bison), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:19 (one year ago) link

i feel like u want to keep yr superstar players at all costs but also im not seeing a title path there for them either

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:21 (one year ago) link

also the kawhi injury situation is..........weird

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:21 (one year ago) link

like everyones gonna be lining up to trade for him but the weird injury sitch has got to at least give pause

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:22 (one year ago) link

Talked to a high-ranking Spurs official, who said the organization hasn’t been told that (yet, apparently). But that could be coming. https://t.co/cIAa3Q6AWv

21st savagery fox (m bison), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:23 (one year ago) link

guys, kawhi is not hurt. he wanted out plain n simple.

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:23 (one year ago) link

............messy

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:23 (one year ago) link

if he wasnt injured and just wanted out he maybe shdve told the spurs that idk (maybe he did)

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:26 (one year ago) link

No, it's not a typo: The Los Angeles Lakers are now 6-1 to win the 2018-19 NBA title at Westgate. They opened 20-1. https://t.co/0dhRXRrgp5

Everything about the situation is weird. It should give the Celtics pause, but LA or Sacramento should obviously do it.

I feel like we’re simultaneously underrating him as a player and the weirdness of last season.

Allen (etaeoe), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:32 (one year ago) link

We’re also underestimating the strength of that LMA and Kawhi team.

Allen (etaeoe), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:33 (one year ago) link

they were good but not good enough

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:34 (one year ago) link

Feel like the Spurs are a sharp enough organization and the players are onboard enough with everything that there must be a lot more we don’t know. So many shots were being taken at him. That doesn’t seem like the usual “Spurs way.”

omar little, Friday, 15 June 2018 18:35 (one year ago) link

wonder if the whole culture thing just kinda crumbled w/o duncan

sprout god (lag∞n), Friday, 15 June 2018 18:36 (one year ago) link

Kawhi is great but the injury is 10 on a 1-10 scale weird, and considering how many players Pop has handled over the past couple decades without drama* it’s a red flag. Not enough to not want him maybe but still...

*there was Rodman drama I guess

omar little, Friday, 15 June 2018 18:38 (one year ago) link

Also hearing the Spurs have not received this memo from Kawhi. A sign of the divide that his camp chose to take it to the social media streets first via the media... https://t.co/B9yYN6uAan

Hall of Fam (Spottie), Friday, 15 June 2018 19:00 (one year ago) link

Not sure it’s a culture thing as much as it is a Kawhi thing. Though I agree on the overall point.

omar little, Friday, 15 June 2018 19:10 (one year ago) link

the only hitch w a celtics deal is they have to include an actually good player to match salaries so are unlikely to also put one of their youngus in the deal, cld see kyrie + one of their good draft picks tho

someone on twitter pointed out to me that they cld just sign n trade smart, obvs youd have to do it for way over his market value but if the contract was short and made the deal work i cld see it

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 16 June 2018 00:07 (one year ago) link

i didnt think sign and trades still existed in the new cba

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 16 June 2018 00:10 (one year ago) link

plus marcus smart might hasten pop's death so no

21st savagery fox (m bison), Saturday, 16 June 2018 00:10 (one year ago) link

i think u cn still sign n trade but yeah i am recalling something about it being weird now or something

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 16 June 2018 00:12 (one year ago) link

pop n marcus wld be a funny combo true, but i bet in the end they wld become best friends

sprout god (lag∞n), Saturday, 16 June 2018 00:13 (one year ago) link

If it was both Smart and Morris then Pop would retire
