How is calling him a 3rd/4th option (in an obviously derogatory fashion) and laughing about it not considered being a dick? Like i said, I don't mind that he doesn't consider him a top player but it just comes off as petty to belittle a player's accomplishments by putting the onus on the "system".

Derogatory?

Are you Kawhi himself?

You sound so butt hurt that no one is sucking Kawhis dick?

also depends what he really intends to do if he doesn't get max, if it's max or 'trade me' than by all means they should trade him lol

Yeah, going back to Steve's point, Spurs would shut down any talks if he comes with this attitude and rightfully so.

I love Kwahi but honestly I can not see him as a guy filling in Duncan(once) or Parkers(now) shoes, I don't think he is that type of a player to carry a team's offense. Tmac was also a late revelation but I am not convinced he has the whole package to become that type of player. I see him more as a Pippen/Worthy/Artest/Deng type of player. But maybe he will surprise us, id want that tbh- for the Spurs.

Definitely not.
He may be in the 30-40-ish bracket.

I can see the Artest and Deng comparison but Pippen and Worthy, not so much.

Pippen is a very, very good offensive player in his own right. He was easily averaging 20/8/6 with 3 steals in some years while being one of the best defenders in the league. I've yet to see if Kawhi can do the same consistently.

His ceiling is high and he can definitely reach that stratosphere but he is still a long way to be an offensive juggernaut. Not impossible though, we just saw George jump that hurdle within a year or two and develop into a legit All Star so who knows.



I am actually a huge Kawhi fan, I've stated it here many times that dude went to my cousins high school in Riverside (less than an hour drive from me) and I've seen this dude grow up and be what he is now and I want nothing but the best for him. But if I have to rank him honestly, he just isn't up there and don't think he deserves that max contract from the league. Now if the Spurs are willing to pay him and he gets to stick to the system most ideal for him then great!

Off the top of my head, there are at least 20 players I'd rank ahead of him tbh. After that, it's a toss-up

I am at the 25-30 range(off the top of my head.) So with me really thinking, he drops back.

I am not saying that he isn't a solid player/quality defender. But he plays a role on the Spurs. He needs the stars around him.
He didn't have a monster finals. He was solid and played D on the best player in the World.

He is going to shoot up if he plays his game and helps the Spurs get back to the finals. Another plus is that he is so young.

:rofl: You can be insufferable. lol8[1].gif And your appetite to bark up every tree is second only to a rabid dog. You're my favorite for the Idfnl award of 2014/15. Would also consider jet or brothersport but I haven't seen any recent posts crackup[1].gif

Attn: mods. Can we get more lol emoticons for rfx? Dude needs more options for when he feels threatened or someone calls him out.

Oh, and rfx, crackup[1].gif

actually, i think the worthy comparison is pretty good. very solid defensive player who could bring it offensively when he was called on -- which wasn't very often (playing with magic and kareem). could worthy have carried a team if he needed to? it's possible, just as it's possible leonard will step up if necessary, either by going to a lesser team or by the aging out of duncan and parker.

Who the hell called me out? I reply that I don't think Kawhi deserves max contract and some replies sarcastically by saying "I guess if he had commercials people would think of him better" which is just an asinine reply because it has absolutely no bearing or "I guess he has to carry a team like Lebron to deserve max contract". Shit at least bring some bball knowledge and try to be funny with dumb comments to prove a point.

But I become the bully and to the level of idfnl?

Fuck that shit. Get your pussy level of emotions out of here if you can't take someone not agreeing with how much your favorite player.


Ain't nobody mad or heated here, ya'll must have forgot. Again this thread has gone this soft in the past few months?

Just damn pathetic hitting me in my emoticon usage. facepalm.gifbaldy[1].gifmusicboohoo[1].gifffffuuuu.gifdozingoff.gifcrazy.gifbutbut.gifmad.gifpatch[1].gifsneaky2.gifeek.gif



It's the NBA season, exchange your panties for some manly tighty whities and man up!
