    Same here...but Kawhi doesn't strike me as the type to get swayed from doing what HE wants to do.

    I think this season was all about coming to Toronto and winning a championship.

    Mission accomplished.

    I think he's got another goal in mind now...so I think he's moving on for sure.

    And you know what???

    That's fine with me

    I see 1+1 (player option) as the likeliest of scenarios. This way Kawhi hits 10 years of service and could sign another max deal at 35% of the cap later.

    His uncle has also been telling everyone that they better enjoy Kawhi this year because he's gone after this year.

    He's caught up in the emotion - i'll be absolutely floored if he re-signs.

    Career wise...the best thing he could do is sign a 1yr + player option deal (1+1).

    Tory is certainly doing a major push to keep him in Toronto.

    Id argue Career wise the best thing he can do is sign a Max deal of 5 years 190 million dollars lol.

    Head to La when hes 32 and spend his remaining years close to home
    I cant imagine nobody offers him 4 years 140 mill when he becomes a free agent again, If Chris Paul can get THAT much cash at that age with 0 championships, Kawhi will be just fine to make another super deal at 32, no problem

    Thats what would be best for his career honestly, again thinking like an Agent that is. but again his agent is his uncle, so he might not think this way at all lol.

    No one can say the Raptors organization, Toronto and this entire country really...didn't do everything they could to keep him in Toronto.

    Now rumors of weapons and shots fired, police telling crowd and reporters to duck.

    Several fans moving about, trying to get out. Lots of crowd movement now.

    I hope this doesn't go out of control.

    For the fans/followers/bandwagoners

    I'd definitely think a 1+1 would be GRAVY tho, considering the odds of him taking the 5 year deal are MUCH lower than the odds are of him walking away this summer (0 year extension) ...so even just ONE more year with Kawhi, is a huuuge win imo, considering what he just helped them accomplish ALREADY.

    So considering the odds, thats why I keep thinking the Max deal isnt the solution to this whole thing, it could very well be the 1+1

    Whats flown under the radar since nobody wants to think negatively after such a positive accomplishment lol is that next year Lowry, Ibaka and even Gasol (if he doesnt opt out THIS year actually) are on expiring contracts... and they make MOULA... so no matter what, kawhi or no kawhi, theyve got 1 more year left in this window they created basically when they got Lowry all those years ago, because he definitely started this whole party, raptors were a footnote until this PG started making noise out of nowhere, But Lowry is already 33 , its as good as its going to get with him

    Right, I would hope and think Kawhis team knows about the 8 year service max and the 10 year service max, and if they angle that direction, thats just fine with me as well, 2 more years of kawhi instead of 0 is more than anyone can hope for right now, because hoping for the 5 year max seems like an exercise in futility at this point unfortunately lol

    Yeah, he either stays or goes to the Clippers. I can see the incentive to head west as he’s from there and he’ll have an opportunity to be the guy in LA (Clippers that is) and that team is on the way up.

    However, I think Toronto can still make another run next year though it gets dicey once all the contracts run out after this season.

    One thing is for sure, Kawhi had a lot of fun with this at the end, trying to tease everybody.

    Unlike Montreal where things got out of hand as usual. Trashed cop cars.

    I thought it was all peaceful. Oh well, there's idiots everywhere I guess. :laugh: I'd hate to see if it was the other cup TO had won.

    There was also gunshots in the square that scattered a good amount of people. Just chaos overall.

    Probably Clippers fans trying to lure Kawhi to LA. :sarcasm:


    P.S. I'm only joking about this because it was reported the two hospitalized victims are in stable condition with non life-threatening injuries.
