LA Clippers.....Why would anyone ever listen to little skippy. You are right, he sounds like Broussard and everyone knows you do NOT ever listen to anything idiot Broussard says!

Jason Nam .....NO, Kawhi will NEVER play for the Lakers! Considering Kawhi's personality, you should know Kawhi will not tolerate the drama of the a lakers in his like! I hope you are smarter than that!

Overall, Kawhi Leonards contract was a strategic business decision. The Clippers were thinking about the teams future in terms of the benefits with keeping Klaw for 2 years, and then providing him an opportunity to use his player option in order to change teams. It's all based on the best thing for the franchise. I expected it to happen in a way not signing him for 5 years for example. Instead, the 3 year with an option to go another team is better for both parties viewing the bigger picture. Also, completely disagree with Nick Wright about his point that it was money and power motivated. In reality, it was a safety net move executed by the Clippers management in order to determine based on the way he plays and performs in his first two years with the team, whether he was worth the 103 million investment. Plus, I'm hoping and praying that Kawhi returns to Toronto to play for the Raptors and help them win a second championship. That will be epic and great! Just a thought!

OMG WRIGHT, are you stupid or do you just talk like you are stupid? kawhi Leonard is NOT hung up on money! He left $50M on the table when he left the Spurs and he left $90M on the table when he left the Raptors! Now, why don't you tell the public one more time that Kawhi's contract is about MONEY and power? You are truly pathetic!

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.
