There is not a chance in hell Popp trades the best two-way player since Lebron for anything. Kawhi isn't even in his prime yet, and given the similarities between his game and Lebron's you can expect 7-8 years of first team All NBA caliber play from him. Spurs will reboot through savvy drafting, trades, and budget free agent pickups as they always do.

Well you don't trade a top 5 player for a someone who might be a star down the road.

People are getting wayyy ahead of themselves with Fultz.

Maybe the Spurs will trade us Kawai for the rights to Satnum Singh.

Stupid teams like the Magic do stuff like that. Spurs are NOT a stupid team like the Magic. You could get three lottery picks in this draft and not get a single player with as much impact as Kahwi

The easier route would be Parker/Ginobli retire. Parker off the bench if stays, and go get Lowry. Lets not be drastic

I doubt there is any current NBA player the Spurs would consider trading Kawhi for since the Brow has a glass body and Lebron is old...

Yeah, Leonard is a perennial MVP candidate, one of the best 2-way players in the league... At best, Fultz could be the same. At best.

And it's taking forever to get to the real season. We've been waiting for months for CLE vs GSW. I'm sure people were getting bored watching months of pre-season games.

How sweet do you think Durant's championship will be if he gets it? Basically didn't struggle at all. Walked onto a championship/near-championship team and maybe put them over the top.

Dirk put in more than a dozen years struggling through adversity to get his.

The value of a reward is the pain and sweat that went into it.

KD def took the easy way out. Bitch move IMO. They were talking on the radio about if he wins it this year he might go back to OKC. One of the guys seems to think he would be welcomed back with open arms. I'm not so sure.

KD is a bigger bitch than LeBron, and that's saying a lot... Put a big, ol' asterisks next to anything they achieve in their careers, they barely had to work for it.

Craziest story I've heard this year in the NBA.

Erdogan compares self to Hitler. Makes himself dictator. Kanter says he supports the opposition candidate and also compares Erdogan to Hitler. Turkey cancels passport and orders his arrest. Detained in Romania
