    Lowry and DeRozan said the same thing. It’s boilerplate.
    yeah I guess it only makes sense as a businessman.

    Plus people are making too much of a deal. Balmer is from Detroit. Probably not uncommon or strange for him to join them on that annual road trip
    It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

    I think it's just funny that he didn't even acknowledge Ballmer and makes a point of saying he didn't even know he was there (I doubt that lol).I don't think he or Bill Gates or Jim Ballsillie back in the day would be used to being treated that way

    Kawhi doesn't give a shit and is one of the few people in the NBA that I would believe when they say they have no idea who is at the game, or who Ballmer even is.

    Hes implying hell have a sit down with whoever is interested. He wants to play basketball and win more than anything. Good luck to us this year he has front row seats to how things are done here. Its all about how we do the next few months everything else is irrelevant.

    Kawahi Having a sit down with Ballmer can only work for the Raptors advantage. Exhibit A:

    Kawhi's PPG:

    Nov. = 23.7
    Dec. = 29.1
    Jan. = 30.2
    Feb. = 17.7 (3 games)

    Yeah he's cruising a bit, they've also been playing garbage teams in most of his "foot off the gas" games and this is only a few very recent games.

    More than anything I'm glad to see Nurse call a guy out a bit. Nurse has had a very que sera sera message to working things out and seeing how things go, sometimes guys (even the pros) need a kick in the ass. It's also good to have a team environment that holds everybody accountable, including your top dog.

    Well, that's it right there. It's hard for guys like Kawhi Leonard to get up for team like the Knicks

    Still good for coach. You hope he said it to him in private or in front of the team first. Or this might be an out of proportion response.

    We want him to mow cupcakes and deer all day eryday

    Again, Nurse is not immume from criticism but it's really over the top for a rookie coach in this situation and still managing an elite record.

    “A little bit, and I’m kind of being serious about it,” said Nurse. “He (Kawhi) needs to find a little bit of fire once in a while to go out there and say ‘You know what? I’m getting 35 or 40 tonight.’ You know?”

    Or hit the game winner. That works too. For his part Leonard didn’t mind being held to a high standard:

    “I didn’t know until right now,” he said. “But when a coach is like that, you want that motivation. They can see it. They’re looking in between the lines of the game. Even if you’re going out there and having 20 points and you win, you want a coach that motivates you and tell you what you’re still doing that’s negative on the floor that’s costing your team. I appreciate him putting that in the air.”

    Kawhi re-signs here confirmed
    You can out the "what does Kawhi think about Nurse" rhetoric to rest. He still loves him ....
    If anything, Kawhi has openly said that the other players have to work within the system (that Nurse has) and put in the effort.

    They usually drop the new shoes at the All-Star game. Another great reason for Kawhi to stay out East. Hes a surefire starter for years.

    honestly, if Kawhi is injured or sore, I don't think he should go to the All-star game, especially if you don't play at home in front of many, many hard-working fans who pay big bucks to see the team (he especially) play...

    Unless their injuries are serious, I'm pretty sure the team wants Kawhi & Lowry at the all-star game out there repping the Toronto Raptors brand and showing that we're now a fixture in the big boys club. The game itself isn't exactly the most physically demanding affair.

    Yeah this is why I have no issues with them playing. Nobody over exerts themselves in an All Star game.
    Kawhi Leonard is a Toronto Raptor

    Yeah but he's supposed to be a super focused guy that loves nothing more than playing basketball. He misses so many games as well that you would think he'd be really motivated when he's playing.

    Is he? He's like, on record that he doesn't care about games in-season to the point where he'll miss them and not think twice. Why would he suddenly care a bunch about them when he's on the court? He's been pretty clear that his eyes are on April, May and June and only those games.
