  1. Masai can't win a championship without Kawhi. However, Kawhi has won a championship without Masai. Therefore, I give the edge to Kawhi. Kawhi can leave Toronto join another contender and win another championship.

  2. How many great superstar players have we seen have their careers wasted away because no one could put a good team around them? Success/failure starts from the top.

  3. Only thing the clippers could offer Kawhi that he can’t get In Toronto is palm trees, warm weather in December and the fact that’s it’s close to San Diego. That’s all. Everyone thinks if Kawhi joins that team they’re suddenly the favourites which is just not true considering how the west is getting better. The clippers have never seen a conference final and they had Blake griffin and Chris Paul in their primes. Can one person really get them over a jump like that? And if they load manage Kawhi throughout the year like Toronto did can the other players pick up the slack?

  4. HOLD UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    True Masai led Raptors could not get past Lebron James, BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DWAYNE CASEY WAS NOT HIS COACH! he inherited the man.

    Because of Ujiri, Raptors made the playoffs each year. The trade for Kawhi, Green. The getting rid of Casey, JVal, adding Gasol all Ujiri.

    All the draft picks, putting the team together ALL UJIRI.


  5. Now that rumours say Toronto have a high chance of keeping Kawhi, ESPN is trying to create controversy between Kawhi and Ujiri. ESPN is a joke
