  1. 219 million, this is why basketball needs an actual cap no one would be willing to pay that if there was one or at the very least each team would only be able to afford 1 max contract without gutting the rest of the team

  2. He's spreewelling…two of the greatest talents and we will never know…is kawhi the best dual threat? Yes and his youth but Stephen a. As usual is right

  3. guy is overhyped. he got attention for the same reasons they like Duncan. he was a quiet black boy and did his job. i bet next season don’t equal a max for him performance wise.

  4. Players taking a season to get 100 will probably be the norm in a few years. They want this dude to be the face of the franchise for a long time. They misdiagnosed. Then shut it again down to get it right. The rest of the drama is speculation.

  5. That's just Kawhi's personality…he's quiet and not outspoken like other players. My bet is everything is fine with the Spurs and he's gonna come out killin everybody next year. ESPN is just pushing narratives.

  6. He might want more rings and realizes that you can't do that with the team he has now. He is looking around the league and seeing all the accolades that everyone else is getting and he wants that too.
