    For all the douchebags out there and for what he brings I could live with him on the team. For all his faults he is a team player he just has a problem with Draymond Green and he would have the same problem with our locker room if he continued with "gods gift to Basketball" Gods gift would have to sit out the first half because he was stuffed in a locker during that time.

    I could root for just about anyone.
    Just Not Chris Paul. If we got him, I would immediately stop watching games - I've got plenty of other hobbies....

    He's just not interested in anything we have to offer. I just don't see it. We missed our shot at KD.

    I loved that the Warriors were replacing Durant in the pre-game huddles with a mop, a reporter from the Oregonian, etc. The disrespect. I wouldn't be suprised if the players on the Warriors have frozen KD out already.

    Don’t want him. He’s a ring chaser.

    Well, if we had beat GSW in the WCF we'd be a LOCK to get Durant this summer...

    Naw, then he'd have to go through GSW again (and would fail) in order to earn his ring. In the East he's pretty much guaranteed* an easy ride, and then in the Finals he might get lucky with Curry having ankle problems, and finally get a ring of his own.

    *Although honestly, if he goes to NYK I expect them to find a way to fuck it up and be a mid-pack PO team.

    That Clippers team beat the Warriors 2x in the playoffs. They have a GREAT owner and a great situation. NYC is a dumpster fire.

    Would you respect him more if he was chasing scoring titles instead of rings?

    Oh NO..... No Way.... The Blazers would never want one of the best players to ever play the game on their roster.

    Nah that would be Terrible.... Just TERRIBLE!

    Going to the Clippers! I bet
    He has great respect for J West & Mo Rivers.
    He would be the man on LA's new preferred team and love to do it at Lebron's expense.
    He would become bigger than Lebron in LA!

    He would be big for sure. But Lebron is pretty darn big in his own right.

    A small part of me hopes he goes to the Clippers.

    Just to see how many bandwagon fans jump the Laker ship.

    A BIG part of me wants to see him go to either NY team. Imagine KD winning a ring with the Knicks.

    But I definitely think the Clippers have a good chance of landing him. The question is: who else do the Clippers sign if Kawhi decides to stay in the North?

    Oh I think we'd want him. But we don't have a shot.
