    It's strange, because during the regular season, the Raps were all about it being a team effort, lots of bench scoring, that sort of thing. Now it's all about Leonard all the time.

    Their bench was constantly getting outscored post deadline. They moved their depth for more starters. Last yr was the "Bench Mob".

    -Philly at PG is so damn long, Lowry and FVF were having trouble getting their shots off.
    -Embiid is a great talent, but mentally not there yet.
    -Toronto was 1-3 vs Milwaukee I think. But 1-1 with Kawhi playing.

    I love my line in the first post of this thread:
    Kawhi seems to have that "Big shot" ability Derozan didn't. And I'm not talking about the final shot of a game, I'm talking about that, "They're starting to go on a run and Kawhi nails a shot to stop it".
    He also has the final shot of the game ability apparently.

    Honestly though, this series has been incredibly tight. Going into game 5 both teams scored the exact same number of points.

    -first time all year Bucks lost 3 in a row (last time that happened was 15months ago)
    -Bucks were 33-0 when leading going into the 4th, now 33-1.
    -Giannis Attemptafreethrow has 15.9pts per 100 possessions when Leonard is defending him, the lowest number vs anyone defending him.

    Kawhi is unreal. MVP of the playoffs hands down.

    Masai better give him whatever he asks for in the offseason. I'll throw in my first born.

    That's worth as much as the toilet paper I wipe my ass with.

    Apparently a bunch of restaurants are offering him free food for life among other things. I saw one of these signs at the Jack Astor I ate at last night.

    A real estate guy has offered him a free condo if he signs with Toronto.

    BMO Field's billboard has a billboard on re-signing Kawhi (a bunch of Billboards are out there with the same sign throughout the GTA)

    The Tor media has been shortening their interviews with him as well. says something when even the media is trying to get him to stay. (he hates interviews)

    I feel like he's now leaning into the "Bill Belichick" answers in interviews because he knows the world loves it. He may naturally be a quiet guy, but I think the Spurs environment stifled his humour where in Toronto he's learning he can actually have some fun.

    And the media knows we love his one liners, so why press when they get more hits when he has a funny comment and walks away then them pressing for something else.

    There was on in particular where the reporter only asked him one question..
    he was like, 'that's it?' --

    'well I can ask more if you want?'

    ' no, no, we're good'

    But totally agree. The Raps are doing everything they can to get him to re-sign. The entire city is into it. A bunch of restaurants are also offering free food for life. not to mention the Multi-Million dollar condo for free.
