    Honestly tho what a f****** win. Absolutely monumental win for the team and city. Kawhi is the best player in the world right now and god I hope he sticks around as him playing for Toronto would be great for the nba.

    As for the finals, the Warriors should be heavy favs but let’s not forget the time the Spurs dominated GSW in game 1 of the WCF before bum-ass Zara took out Kawhi.

    Well technically he only has himself to blame.

    If he was a better player he could have been that guy.

    If DeRozan actually turned up in postseason maybe they could've won something.

    Pretty sure Bayless is a Spurs fan. If you're a Spurs fan you would probably feel the same towards Leonard as many still do now.

    Still took the time to throw on his Cowboys hat for a back-handed compliment video towards Kawhi Leonard. Even in defeat Skip wants to make it clear whose sceptre he tongue-polishes.

    I know he's a Spurs fan. I just find his saltiness toward Kawhi amusing.

    Dispatch Lowry and whoever else while giving him Kawhi. Plus take LeBron out of the East and they could easily be in the same spot.

    I think the difference is that Kawhi could have beat Lebron anyways.

    I mean there is no chance a Derozan-led Raps team gets past Philly or Milwaukee this year.

    Heck Orlando would have likely took them to 7 games.

    It's not like he doesn't deserve some blame. His teammates begged him to come back and he flat out quit on them.

    San Antonio was a first class organization that had won multiple championships without him. Something horribly went wrong and the Spurs organization deserve some blame as well.

    After all, this is a superstar league.

    Don't know...If not for a last second shot in game 7, Toronto might not have even reached the ECF.

    That's why they made the move for Leonard. Even if it's only all or nothing this year for Toronto, it was worth it. Columbus did the same in the NHL in hopes of just winning a playoff round.

    Lots of rumours out there about what happened but based on the fact that he didn't actually start the season 100% healthy, I'd lean towards the possibility that the Spurs simply put pressure on him to come back sooner than he felt he was ready to because they felt the pressure of continuing their playoff run that year.

    Yeah, but there is no universe where I can imagine DeRozan making that shot.

    They don't call him DeFrozan for nothing. The man is just not cut out for playoff basketball.

    Derozan is just not a star player. He's basically at the same level as a Khris Middleton.

    Kawhi having an all time great playoff run.

    This years gotta be special for him. In 2013 & 2014, while he was good both years and elite in the 2014 finals, he wasn't the "leader" of the team. The Spurs were still lead by the original Big 3. This time he's the captain of the ship, no questions asked. This is his team.

    His fault for being a mediocre playoff performer relative to his regular season play. Mind you, Leonard is a superior player and always will be so that makes a big difference.
