    And what kept Kyle in Toronto was winning. But this team has to win way bigger because Kawhi already has a chip, so even that isn't going to overly impress him. Raps have to get to the Finals and at least make it interesting. A TON of pressure on Nick Nurse to be as innovative as he says he is. Nurse is my biggest concern, tbh.
    I don't think winning is the driving force. Spurs were winning. I mean there was a good as chance as any that the Spurs could have beaten the Warriors in 2016-2017 if Zaza didn't injure him.

    As for Nurse I agree to an extent.. not so much if he can win.. but if he can foster a healthy relationship with Kwahi. Pops is a great coach but the reason he's now a Raptor is most likely because Pops is hard headed and doesn't coddle his guys. Kwahi probably wanted to be coddled through out his injury and didn't get that, and when things got rough he wanted out of there.

    I don't know much about Nurse at all.. but Casey for better or for worse may have been an ideal coach for Kwahi. Assuming he'd handle Kwahi like he handled DeMar and Lowry.

    I am still glad Casey is not here from a micro perspective (he needed accountability for a lot of his poor decisions in the playoffs). But at a macro level I would have felt more optimistic with our chances in keeping Kwahi after this season.

      Dynamics are totally different though.

      Apart from Nurse, we have a different roster and front office.

      Pops wasn't just Kawhi's coach, he was the president. And vets like Manu and Parker seem to have helped alienate Kawhi.

      Masai is our president and was able to get Lowry not just to re-sign, but to shift his attitude in a positive way.

      Our players seem to be a close group and if there is any friction, it's never been obvious.

      So we'll see how things play out. Even if Nurse is a bit of a hard coach, I don't think that will be an issue as long as he relates to players well.

            • I wonder if Kawhi was expecting more respect and trust. After what he did for the Spurs over the course of years, he may have expected more trust and respect around his decision about what he appears to have believed was a serious and significant injury. When he didn't get it, and his motives were questioned he was hurt. Then the criticisms started. It could be a huge dose of not understanding Kawhi. I trust Masai and Nurse to figure this out.

                            Now, now, Judge, haven't we talked about finding softer ways of communicating your points? Lol

                              Jesus what a terrible video

                              Clickbait title
                              Anecdotal evidence based off cherry picking plays
                              No relevant numbers to back up points
                              Whole video is just about Kawhi being better than Demar, which is pretty obvious

                              Remind me to never watch bballbreakdown again
