    There you go Kawhi you are home, welcome to the scrutiny of the L.A media & having a bumbling fool of a coach who can't stop placing his own foot in his own mouth.

    We are so early in the season & this kinda stuff wouldn't have happened in Toronto. Enjoy more heat & scrutiny down the line. For a private person Kawhi has escaped the perfect situation he had in Toronto.

    Why is this a big deal now? nobody cared about this last year. The Raptors managed his load for 22 games last year. Is it because he now plays in LA?
    It's because a ton of Clipper games are nationally televised this year with major advertising dollars riding on the ratings. Those viewership numbers don't materialize when Kawhi ducks playing Giannis. ESPN is not happy.... to put it mildly.

    Wait, so the NBA determined that Kawhi isn't healthy enough to play back-to-backs, then fined the Clippers for saying he's healthy? Lmao
    The official statement yesterday by the NBA was major CYA to protect the $24B TV contract covenants. It's self-serving for the NBA to so say, "hey ESPN, the Clippers convinced us that Kawhi is not healthy, so we're not violating any player availabillty clauses in the TV deal". Then Doc immediately broke ranks today and said Kawhi was fully healthy. What a moron. There's a shit-ton of money at stake here.
