    Agree.

    But if Kawhi leaves, Pascal has to go too. SELL HIGH.
    I think its a sell low proposition, actually. They should hold him no matter what.

      I don't think he's a guy that you can build around to win a championship.

      Bosh in his prime was 10x better player than Siakam and they couldn't win anything with him as "the guy".

        And why does Siakim have to be "the guy" if he stays?

          Who's going to be the guy then?

            Who's going to be the guy if he goes? We don't know yet.

              To be fair, we can't compare Bosh in his prime to Siakam in his (not yet met) prime and that's the point. Pascal just turned 25 last month and we all know he started late....he could be a 20+ and 8 guy next season.

                  • Pascal is better than Derozan and Masai already showed he can build a 60-ish win team around that. No championships but we still got a bunch of years of playoffs ahead of us.
                    Only one thing matters: We The Champs.

                      Gasol is worth keeping.
                      Why?

                      • Adam Silver likes Load Management....

                        "I mean there's actually an article in the Wall Street Journal today about Kawhi Leonard, about how - that he, I forget the precise number of games, I think he missed something like 20 games this past season. But I think - the story - they say it. But what is unusual about Kawhi is he missed almost the entire prior season. So he was recovering from an injury almost the entire season. And what people are pointing to right now is that he's playing great. I mean, they haven't won anything yet. But, you know - and he's playing a lot of minutes in the playoffs.

                        "And that article suggested that maybe that's a strategy other teams should be following. But I would also say with the Philadelphia 76ers, Joel Embiid missed almost the same amount of games this season and we'll see what impact it has on him.

                        "So I just think load management is come more to mean in the NBA - it may mean that, you know, every, you know, 15 games or something like that, you may not play. And I only say, and even from a fan standpoint, from a league standpoint, and the science is not quite maybe what people may think it is here, I think we all thought in terms of our best players if resting a player every 15 games or something like that.

                        "If legitimate resting of players resulted in them being healthier in the playoffs, healthier longer, able to continue their career longer, I think we'd be in favor of it.

                          That, I'd have to agree with. Heck, Rome wasn't built in a day, as they say.

                              He's got 2 young kids. The best place for his girlfriend/baby mama is probably back home in California, surrounded by family members she can trust to help with her kids from time-to-time. His girlfriend is going to have major input. I hope she enjoyed the Canadian winters and his daughter loves tobogganning.

                              • I won't read into it one way or the other. I do believe it tells me his gf will have input on where he goes, but we already knew family was a big part of his decision.
