    If he decides that it's not for him then so be it. I'll respect the decision. He delivered us what we wanted - a title. Provided us with memories that will last a lifetime. If he decides to stay he'll go down as the most revered player for this franchise. If he decides to walk we'll move on.
    There's very few examples of a star walking to FA and the fans ok with it. This will be added to that short list. Even if they lost in the finals, the fans wouldn't be angry at him. We'll be upset if he leaves, but not angry.

    This to me seems wrong. They were saying on Friday that they were expecting 2 million people. Why be surprised when that many people showed up?

    As for Leonard leaving or not, the rumour today is that he has it down to two teams; Clippers and Raptors.

    Writer of the weekly Top 10 column.

    12-team Keeper pool, straight points for forwards & dmen. Goalies get: 2 points per win, 3 per shutout, 1 point per assist & 1 point per shootout loss.

    League champ in 2013, 2015 and 2018.

    Top 8 forwards, 5 dmen and 2 goalies count.

    We keep 15 players (any position) plus two rookies.

    Forwards: Kopitar, Voracek, E. Staal, Marchessault, Granlund, Couturier, Guentzel, Pettersson, Dadonov, Glass, Dube, Necas, Andersson, Ho-Sang
    Defence: Gostisbehere, Suter, Boqvist, Krug, Ekman-Larsson
    Goalies: Hellebuyck, Rinne, Crawford, Rask

    I think Tor has the edge. They can offer him significantly more money than LAC. Not to mention... he would draw other players to Tor to make a run at a repeat.

    I have heard that the only things we are hearing are 100% speculation and that Kawhi is extremely tight-lipped and everything we know is media driven. The only person that knows what Kawhi's intentions are is Kawhi.

    Yes, there is some facts included in the speculation, like Toronto being able to offer him more money, but who knows if Kawhi even cares about the money.

    I think it was over 2mill honestly.

    The GoTransit twitter said they had 1.1million more "trips" than a typical monday for a total of 2.7mill "trips". And that doesn't even count the people who fare skip.

    Kawhi is a family guy and that will weigh heavily on his thought process.

    He doesn't give a shit about free food, being King of the North, billboards or any of that stuff... I actually think all those things are turning him off. Give the man his space.

    If he leaves it would be depressing, but I would definitely understand. He has earned the right to do whatever he wants.

    Almost 3million people were in Toronto for the Parade. 8% of Canada. Just at the Parade. Imagine adding in the people who were just in Toronto.
