    NBA should fine players for such absurd disloyalty, stick to one fucking team Kawhi, for at least a couple years.

        MESSAGE TO KAWHI LEONARD - Kawhi, sometimes in life great things come to us from places or people that we never anticipated or thought possible. You probably had your doubts when they traded you to Toronto but the reality is that you have played your best basketball, got along with your teammates, get along with the coaching staff, the Raptors fans ADORE YOU and you are now going to the NBA FINALS... Please do not make the mistake to go somewhere else when you and your Raptors team have found a WINNING COMBINATION and now have a chance to win an NBA CHAMPIONSHIP. When you are winning or have a winning combination, you do not change anything because this means that all the pieces of the team are working to perfection. Take a look what is happening with the Warriors... Do not listen to so many commentators and others who may want for you to play somewhere else because of their opinion, interest or fantasy to see you playing with other players. Listen to your heart and decide for yourself but take in consideration that sometimes what we want personally is not necessarily what is the best for us. I'm a Hall of Fame ex-basketball player from Puerto Rico who played for the same team for 13 years and never regret my decision as I won 2 Championship and went to the semi finals in numerous occasions. You are a TERRIFIC PLAYER and you have great talented players also playing next to you. Be grateful and pay honors to the people or organizations who have been good to you and that will support you no matter what. It is usually the best place to be on. In my opinion, this is what you have found in Toronto. Good luck to you mi amigo and hope you consider what I tell you here.

          Tracy “First Round “ McGrady couldn’t get out of Toronto fast enough. Don’t come sniffing around now that the Raptors made the Finals Fuck Face 🖕

            Its funny how the US media discounts toronto and Kawhi, Like he wants nothing to do with these morons and Toronto is the best place to get away from their BS. Raptors look great in the playoffs and all the US media can talk about is Yonis, and already discounting the raptors and basically saying its over before it begins. ESPN is disgusting

                  Having seen bucks lose game 1 and as a raptors fan seeing them as only team able to beat raptors even if kawhi goes if he can get us to finals I wouldn't mind that much that's enough for me

                              @American sports media: I gotta burst your bubble because we are getting news here in Toronto that Kawhi Leonard is going to stay in Toronto!! He feels Toronto is not only a much nicer and more beautiful city than most of the cities in the U.S., but he is also sick of American media acting like they know better than Kawhi Leonard himself. 🖕

                                Show a meme reused 1000 times over as an actual reaction to the Lowry free throw. ESPN just plain sucks, regurgitate every story 5 times and chew it up all over again, no real analytics, just a bunch of former nba players listening to Rachel reporting on the NBA as if it was a soap opera/reality show. A perfect example of how sensationalism is ruining basketball culture, yuck.

                                            LeBron should have stayed on 1 yr deals and jumped around the East from Philly to Raptors to Celtics to try and win a championship.

                                                When ESPN showed up for the Raptors/Lakers game, they parked themselves in front of the dressing room. Lowry and Green were gracious enough, Kawhi looked like he stepped in dog shit.

                                                          It doesn't matter what "most of the NBA thinks" about Kawhi staying or going. As Brian Windhorst said, Kawhi "does not really articulate his feelings" to anyone and "it's difficult to read." He and T-Mac think Toronto needs to win the finals for Kawhi to stay. Rachel thinks they need to win the ECF. And, a couple of weeks ago on his podcast, Windhorst said he wasn't so sure Kawhi would leave Toronto, and I think it was Tim Bontemps who said on that same pod, that he had never seen Kawhi so happy as he is in Toronto - that he said everything was "amazing." So really, who knows? No one does. Even Kawhi said that he hasn't decided yet - on Serge Ibaka's web series two weeks ago. Should we take Kawhi at his word? Or should we listen to what everyone else guesses, these people who admit Kawhi doesn't talk to almost anyone and is unknowable.

                                                          Oh, and by the way, that was not a "Bronx cheer" for Kyle Lowry''s first point of the series. I was at the arena, we were legitimately happy for him. Much of the fanbase loves Lowry. Blue collar player. Gritty. Tough.

                                                            Hopefully not like McGrady, who is just a selfish self-centered mofo.

Maybe the raptors should load up with the superstar free agents and create a super power of the north?

                                                                                            Of course a lot of the NBA thinks that. The vast majority of people involved in the NBA are American, and therefore they can’t imagine why an American would “choose” to play in another country, even if it is a great country like Canada, in a city just miles (or kilometres) from the U.S. border. Who knows what he will choose to do, but don’t be shocked if he stays. The Raptors have a fantastic organization, and can offer Kawhi the most money. Just because Kawhi is from California and has a home there (as most athletes do have a home near their home town), doesn’t mean he’s going to play there.
