  1. Kawhi Leonard Traded to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan

    That makes no sense. How is it Pop's system when it is completely different than what the Spurs did for 10+ years? Pop's ability to adapt makes him a great coach, but Kawhi was THE system in 2016. That was how show and was the one making all the plays in close games. He will be dominant in Toronto or wherever he plays because he is just that damn good.

    Kawhi is a great talent regardless of where he plays. He's tuened himself into a great shooter, can isolate, come off screens and defend better than anyone in the league on the perimeter. That is going to translate anywhere he goes. Now, no doubt he was part of a great organization and coach in Pop. They are the gold standard in the league but apparently he waa getting sick and tired of how they do some of the things out there. Grass isn't always greener on the other side but he's willing to take that risk.

    Pops system? What does that even mean? The Spurs had a completely different system the last year Kawhi played compared to when he got to the league. Heck, dude was THE system before he got hurt.
  4. Cardinals suspend GM Steve Keim 5 games

    That makes more sense. But I'd still say it would be better to suspend him during preseason then. That's where it would hurt the most.

    Zaza's injury had nothing to do with his current injury.
  6. Cardinals suspend GM Steve Keim 5 games

    GMs get paid per game? They have roster and game bonuses as well? LOL, he got his fine which was $200,000. Him not being at the games is not a big deal at all. If anything, suspend him for the preseason games, that's where he will really make his money at.
  7. Kawhi Leonard Traded to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan

    I don't think that was what was said in that particular report. I think it was he didn't to join a super team as he felt he could attract other stars to play alongside him. I could be wrong, but that's how I took Stephen A Smith's report. But either way, him not playing for a super team is unlikely. Either he plays with LeBron in LA, or with someone like Kyrie in Brooklyn or where ever. I guess if he re-signs with the Raptors then that wouldn't be a super team.

    No, that's fine. But what kind of deal is Rozier going to look for?

    Go back to offering I.T. the mid level vet minimum……
  11. The Official Boxing Thread IV - Golovkin vs Alvarez

    Same, taking Mikey. So Hearn revealed his DAZN Matchroom USA signings yesterday and they were: Andrade, Beterbiev, Roman, Hooker, Big Baby Miller Vargas and three amateurs. Got to say, that's an underwhelming stable right there. But he has two years to build it and he is going to put Joshua/Povetkin on DAZN and wants to put Joshua/Wilder on DAZN as well.

    This was in response to the Raptors being better than what OKC was last season. OKC should be better than they were last season, but that wasn't the question.
  13. Kawhi Leonard Traded to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan

    Nah, they are just better period. Have a much deeper bench and play better as a unit than the Thunder did. The Raptors with Kawhi would have finished with a higher seed than the Thunder last year.

    I may take Siakam over OG going forward. Wright is just a personal favorite, so no argument there.
  15. Kawhi Leonard Traded to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan

    Got absolutely worked by getting Ingram+picks? No, most would have understood it and come away happy getting a potential star in Ingram out of a guy who wanted out and was going to leave in a year. Do you think the fans of the Spurs are more satisfied in two years of Derozan over five to six years of Ingram? Anyways, we keep going in circles. I just disagree with your initial premise that the Spurs had no intention of doing a deal with the Lakers. That would have only been valid if Ingram was offered by the Lakers and the Spurs still turned it down for something less like what they got from Toronto. Lowry/Van Fleet/Kawhi/OG/Siakam or Ibaka is going to give the Celtics some issues. You could put OG or Kawhi on Tatum, and the other one Hayward. The Raptors will have top level defense to go along with a pretty versatile offensive unit. Going to be interesting, but not counting out the Raptors in the East by any means.
