    I think one of the things that gives me confidence about the positive outcome of this FA period is the amount of time Masai has had to come up with reasons to stay. I can only assume (because I am not smart enough to work them all out) that he has arguments against any inducements the Lakers or Clippers may be able to offer. And he has compelling reasons, based on carefully worked out logic, for Kawhi to stay. And he has done this, as Dan suggested some time ago, for every possible contract; 1 + 1, 2 + 1, 3 + 1, etc. He has looked at roster over the next three seasons, he may have talked to Raptors players about future moves and contracts, he may have facilitated pitches to Kawhi from national/international sponsors, he may have done any number of things that I can't imagine. But we can be sure he has covered every contingency.

    Nobody knows Kawhi but Kawhi. But Masai might have come as close to figuring him out as anybody can, because Masai is a smart, caring and careful man.

    I remain positive.

    Let’s see if Masai arranges a meet and greet with the champs and 44. After the Ottawa trip of course.
    hahaha... would love to see what 45 would tweet about that... after an aneurysm!

    Let's see now... how many GMs do we know who are more plugged in, with international movers & shakers, than their billionaire ownership?

    Just watched the presser.

    Hot damn, that man is a leader.

    So many amazing insights and moments from him. And so candid.

    (And I LOVE that he openly refers to his pal Obama as '44' .... That is the ultimate in friggin dopeness.)
