    i guess leonard is more lebron than tim duncan after all, if this is to be believed.

    Can't imagine teams beyond LA and NY are happy with the direction being taken, but short of bringing a hard cap, not sure how you can change it if players only want to play in certain places.
    After failing to recruit Kevin Durant to the Clippers, Kawhi Leonard focused on Paul George and proved to be a 'hell of a recruiter.'

    Money and Kawhi trap?

    so you're suggesting we didn't offer him max given we could give him the best deal possible and offering him the max would have been a trap?
    The problem is not offering him or not offering him the max, the problem for those players is the tax in Canada and life is cheaper in USA. It is a set of factors but it all goes down to one word : money.

    Let us wait and see how he will behave in LAC, I expect the same Spurs scenario.

    I'm disappointed but not too much. He was a hired gun. He painted the town red and slayed our enemies. He never cared to be here, did nothing in the community and was unapproachable. He was a mercenary. Our thanks was paying him and rehabilitating him and his reputation. He owes us nothing. We owe him nothing.

    Clippers and their 19 fans will now deal with him. Don't care.

    The world champion Raps are first class. They will be fine.

    Raptors are like Utah & SA. Draft well and have high character defense first mentality on the team. Than finding & pouncing on opportunities to compete for a championship. Utah is always close to winning even if they didnt thus far.
    Raptors had the core & found their opportunity by trading for Kawhi & won.

    Raptors will always have difficulty in attracting top American players to come via free agency but I see hope with the emerging Canadian & African talent market that could make the Raptors a top destination in the near future.

    Maybe we have to be more like Utah or the Blazers and build a team instead of building around a few stars.

    I may have made that trade if it was offered but it water under the bridge. Time to build a fun team around Siakam and OG.

    Since there is so much parody in the league or expiring should give us good return.

    PG is 29 years old, so in 2-3 years this could be in the case.
    That's what the Raps sold to fans for so many years....hope this player turns out, maybe this guy in the draft, a free agent may choosse us one day. Maybe our FA players will actually stay. Now we have a taste, I don't want to go back.

    You have great players in GSW, Lakers, Clippers, Bucks, Philly, even Dallas and Brooklyn. Maybe we have to be more like Utah or the Blazers and build a team instead of building around a few stars.

    Who is our great player(s) to truly compete now?
    HOPE and TRUST?

    No.
    But Russ is cancer.
    Got it.

    I'm not a fan of Westbrook or Harden or guys like Cousins. But I'd still like to see some elite players in Toronto some day (again) .... and i'm afraid it might be a long time (again).

    Now the hopes rest on re-signing Siakam and getting out from under Kyle, Serge and Gasol's contracts and signing Giannis and another elite player. Very tall order just to say "in Masai we trust"
