First Things First: Cris Carter and Nick Wright it's just funny to me that whte folks wanna make kawhi the new "power" in the NBA simply bcuz he won't talk, which means he won't be leading any causes. he won't be part of getting an owner of a franchise fired. he won't be wearing I can't breathe shirt or a hoodie

He turned down lots of money. Kawhi in his prime is making less money than a broken down old Chris Paul, John Wall and Blake. What a bargain. Hope he stays healthy.

Utah Karl Malone John Stockton Mark Eaton best shot blocker of all times Blue Edwards Turel Baily. Blazers Duckworth Clyde Drexler Porter Jerome Kersy Houston Akeem Ralph Lampson Robert Reed Ottis thorpe. To Close it out Boston Larry Legend Kevin Mchale Robert parish Danny Ainge Dennis Johnson. Or Detroit The Bad boys James Edwards Isea Thomas Dennis Rodman Rick Mahorn John Sally the Microwave Vnny johnson dont say LA beat soft teams go Head and google or you tube some those Teams I'm sure i missed some players and verry good teams.

Power rests with those who sign the checks. Period. None of the players could make one of these billionaire owners spend money they don’t have.

KAWHI SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN TORONTO,AND SOON HE WILL REALIZE THAT!

I think the Clippers have a lot of talent on their roster, but I actually agree that I wish he would have stuck with Toronto. I liked the potential of him and Siakum going forward. That was a special group, but I do think he can win in LA. It's just going to be a lot together road to the finals for sure. The west is stacked.

That's a fact

Well Mr. Carter, you like to act like you are BFF with Kawhi. I do not understand why you would be surprised the Clippers would allow Kawhi to sign a 2 + 1 contract. I just assumed Kawhi told his BFF Carter all the ins and outs of this contract. I am beginning to wonder if Kawhi even knows who you are! Enough!

First off let me just say this, if you are betting on anyone besides the Lakers to win the championship....then you are throwing your money away. Hands down they are going to win it all. Lebron took a bunch of bums to the NBA finals his last year in Cleveland. Furthermore, the Cavs would have come out of the east this past 18-19 season if Lebron stays there. No team could take Lebron’s Cavs in the east. Period.

My second point in this comment is addressed to Kawhi Leonard. KL is in for a rude awakening in the ‘19-‘20 season. Believing that Kawhi is going to land in LA LA land and rescue a franchise and lead a franchise which has never been to the finals-let alone won a championship, is pure fantasy. Me and the Clips are going to struggle. And just as Kawhi received all of this attention because he won with Toronto-watch how quick LA sours on Kawhi when it’s the same ole same ole Clipps this coming season.

5 days ago

It won’t be the same Kawhi next year without the Toronto bounce luck. That luck is with Toronto not with him.

What else would it be about? He has proven he can and will win. Two finals MVPs with two different small market teams in the middle of nowhere. He deserved to go home and bring a friend (who also wanted to go home). KD showed that a player of Kawhi's caliber can get a huge deal even if he suffers the worst possible injury. With that said he should maintain in control of his career by signing 2-3 years and be able to dictate where he plays and with who.
