Those guys didn't know what they were talking about, and neither did the fans (including Skip).

Popovich screwed up, and I bet he's groaning right now watching Kawhi win a chip without him.

Kawhi has won a chip in BOTH conferences now... Meanwhile, like you said,  the Spurs run is over...:lol:

Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard responded Sunday to recent criticism by San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich about his leadership, saying the comments were "funny to me" and insisting that he is a leader.

"I heard about it. It's just funny to me because, you know, I don't know if he's talking about last year or not, but I guess when you stop playing they forget how you lead," Leonard told reporters in Toronto. "Other than that, it doesn't matter. I'm here with the Raptors. My focus is on the season and not what's going on the other side."

I didn't even think of that...:lol:  Kawhi carried that Toronto team to the chip...

 

Raptors are in for one **** of a bidding war in FA.

 

I think the only chance they have at keeping Kawhi is the thought of maybe they could repeat next season.

 

Crazy thing is, I don't think Kawhi cares about pretty much owning the entire county of Canada now lol.

It's hard to say what he will do.  He need to bring his talents to Atlanta...:ninja:

Will this title be enough to keep him in Toronto???

 

There were reports that he may leave regardless.

 

...... we'll see......

After the game Leonard was being interviewed and he roughly said "  I helped Toronto get to the next level "  then he quickly cleaned it up and said " We got to the next level "...:lol:  I forgot EXACTLY the words that were said but it was said in a manner that he knew that he accidentally said what he is gonna do OR he knew that it didn't sound right, so take your pick...:lol:   I can't remember if he said " them" or " toronto" but I DO know it didn't sound right and he quickly cleaned it up...
