He's a bitch. Fuck him. I respect him for getting us a title, but he said he valued loyalty, he valued his health and winning. Raptors gave him all of that, he still chose to go to the unknown with the Clippers. And decided he wanted a super team too instead of breaking the mold.

I respect Kawhi a ton for not joining the Lakers. I'm definitely going to cheer for the Clippers next year.

You're going to need to build on the end part there. He was 3rd in MVP voting and is an absolute stud.


I didn’t see him much last year but everything post injury with the Pacers he looked like he clearly lost a step. He’s a solid all around player but doesn’t have skills that take over a game. That is probably perfect for Kawhi as it gives him a running mate that is basically a lesser version of himself and another LA guy.

Last year was the best year of George's career. At least before the shoulder injury.

The Raptors did everything they could and then some to try and keep him. He wanted to go home. At a certain point, including any negotiation with OKC, the Raptors were being used as leverage. Toronto will take a step back, but they've got a boatload of cap space in a year, and who better than Masai to rebuild this team.

The NBA is back to normal. Masai pulled the trigger at the right time.

Masai is our most important asset. He gets his inadequate press credentials retired and we let him run this ship till hes bored

Let's face it. The NBA is rigged against small markets and Canada and this year's win was a miracle with a touch of genius.

I'd like to see most of the team back next year, because they'll be pretty damn good. Don't want the Raptors go the way of the Florida Marlins and just strip everything clean.

Kyle, Pascal, Gasol, Fred, healthy OG and Masai with a new challenge. Let's go.

The problem with building a superteam in Toronto (with Kawhi and Paul George for example) is that Masai would get bored rather quickly. I think a situation in which he does crafty things and recruits young talent from overseas will be much more fun for him.

This is largely why I would never want to see Lebron in Toronto, because he'd be the guy in charge. It's an uncreative and rigged way to manage a franchise. You get rid of all your high picks and young talent to massage some asshole's ego.

It's hardly a shock that multimillionaires would like to live where the weather's nice and there's beaches. Sam Hinkie got too close to the sun with his method of creating a dynasty, so the NBA blackballed him.

Vince signs in Atlanta. I love that Masai doesn't believe in nostalgia. Truly the greatest GM.
