Still Waiting on Leonard
Latest reports on Kawhi Leonard is that it’s between the Los Angeles Lakers and Toronto Raptors. I stated before I would hate to see him go to the Lakers to form a super team with Anthony Davis and Lebron James. However unlike when Kevin Durant went to Golden State and Lebron going to Miami. Leonard has proven he can win twice as the superstar. The first time with the Spurs with Duncan, Ginobli, and Parker. The second time basically all by himself with the Raptors. So, if he did decide to go to the Lakers it would be more about just winning and maybe not being “the man.”
So far, the NBA free agency has started to balance power. The Nets look like they will be a force next season. The Bucks managed to gain some power back after losing some of its players. The Heat got better with Jimmy Butler. Detroit may be better with Derrick Rose. It would be nice to keep Leonard in Toronto. Drake is doing his part. Only time will tell when Leonard will make his decision. Hopefully, it’s not the Lakers.
