    New Balance, Kawhi's own sponsor, marketed Fun Guy. He obviously OK'd it and even wore the shirt at the parade.

    This whole blaming the media or social media talking point needs to stop. Dude went home, for no other reason than to be close to his family as he's always wanted to do... The Raps knew this before trading for him.

    But hey, if you gotta blame someone then yea, blame all of us!
    One thing I want to say is the guys that do the media I respect. Those guys out there put there time and effort into that stuff. But I got to keep it 100% whack is whack. The people out here just ain’t feeling some or I should say a lot of that shit! It’s just facts. Like that whole narrative about nobody wants to play in Toronto we can’t keep superstars etc. etc. Out here, we don’t feel that! no matter what borough you from this is the best city on that fucking planet, fuck all that noise. I just feel the media makes us look soft.

    if mans out here don’t want to even be associated with that soft shit. I could imagine how people like kawhi would feel who are from real places

    • Does it get to a point where others don't even pick up when Masai calls because they know they are going to get fleeced? Presti and Masai are buddies (from the deals they do) and I'm sure he owes Masai for making the Clippers pay more for PG - so he probably will deal with him. But who in their right mind would?

        LOL, we have a good front office but let's not go crazy here. There are lots of smart basketball people in the NBA and if Ujiri has a guy you want (or you have something he wants) you are going to do deals with him. Memphis and Orlando both got good value from Toronto for Gasol and Ibaka, respectively. NJ made Raps pay a price to move the Carroll contract.

          Exactly.

          If the trades benefit both teams and the players you send the other way have good mentality & succeed, other front offices will want to deal with you.

          It only takes 1 bad move to sometimes make or break a team. If The Knicks wouldn't have canceled Lowry trade due to Dolan's insecurities, we might be looking at two different franchises today.

            The Raptors would certainly look very different. The Knicks... would still be the Knicks.
