Huge for the Nets. Getting DeAndre, Kyrie and KD together already puts them automatically into the discussion as the team to beat in the East.

Kawhi has apparently already met with the Lakers and Clippers. The Raptors will meet with him today I believe.

I doubt he wants to join the Clippers. They are a dumpster fire. Not as bad as the Knicks, but not a team you want to go to unless you're only there for the money. He certainly enjoyed winning the championship so will want a contender.

Clippers are still in the running to land Kawhi surprisingly. Drake pulling out all the stops to keep him in Toronto

It might be wise though for him to go West, since there's a new Big 3 in BK. Plus the Warriors have Klay out and are without KD, so he should team up with LeBron & Anthony Davis in LA since there's a bigger chance with that big 3 you have a good chance of making it to the latter stages of the playoffs at least.

Kawhi will make his decision today, between the Clips, Lakers and Raptors

Would be surprised if he choices the Clippers. Have a feeling he'll go to the Lakers and team up with LeBron and AD.

His real choice is between Drake and Snoop Dogg. I'd rather hang out with Snoop, personally.

Shows what I know, apparently. :olol:

But how bad is Drake you'll play for the Clippers to get away from him?

That steal was ruthless. He's so strong.

He wanted to create his own super team with the Clips, if they didn't land Paul George too, I doubt he'd have went there. Plus they've got Coach Rivers who has experience of winning the NBA title with the Celtics. I still think had he joined the Lakers that almost guarantees they go into the playoffs and have a strong showing. If the Warriors are depleted without Steph and Klay then they could have made it to the Finals for sure with AD, Bron and Kawhi.

The George & Doc dynamic is interesting. Paul used to date Doc Rivers' daughter

And then got caught cheating on her with a stripper he ended up getting pregnant marrying.

That would be awkward. And possibly a soap opera.

Elevated basketball courts are weird but necessary sometimes, but the University of Minnesota has one on purpose. :dontknow"

Basketball is even weirder when you put in a venue that seats 50,000+ people. Here's a great view from a recent Final Four:

The stadium this game was in is an Aussie Rules Football oval, so it was always going to be a bit weird.

Found this in my YouTube favorites, nothing "jams" more than Celine Dion and Thunder Dan:
