    kinda seems like LeBron is on his way to another insane season. And yet all the MVP talk is around Giannis, Embiid, Kawhi, etc.

    He literally could/should be MVP every season. They use to give it to Jordan every year....these days they forcefully share the wealth

    Serious question do yall think you're getting anyone in FA? Seems like Durant went out of his way yesterday to steer FAs like Kawhi from going to LA talking about how toxic the environment is around Lebron.

    Its hindsight bias now but Definitely think they should have pulled the trigger on a kawhi trade before the season. You could have probably challenged this season.

    The same people saying they won't sign any FA this offseason are the same ones saying they wouldn't get LeBron in the first place

    If that's true and kawhi doesn't want to be here then he'd leave as a free agent and LA would have wasted the assets used to trade for him.

    Never quite understood the reasoning that you should trade for someone who will be a free agent because they won't come otherwise (as a FA). I mean, I get the reasoning, just don't think it's smart. These guys these days will leave money on the table if they don't want to stay.

    LA went through that with Dwight....luckily the only real asset lost there was Bynum who never played again.

    Oh and not to mention, Pop made it very clear they'd never trade kawhi to LA no matter what they offered.

    The flip side is Paul George. No chance he picks OKC if they never traded for him.

    Likewise Toronto now has a shot at keeping Kawhi where they otherwise wouldn't have if they never traded for him. It's not a garauntee but gives you a leg up on the competition and built in advantages to be able to recruit them all year and offer the most money.

    the other side of that is when the Knicks traded for Carmelo and gave up assets instead of just signing him in free agency, it can go both ways

    Good bounce back win last night, Kuz has really stepped it up the last few games on D and as a playmaker. Perhaps he read my post in here, bulletin board material.
