The one thing I've heard throughout all of this is that an impetus for Kawhi wanting out of San Antonio is because he got a shitty sneaker deal. Now for the life of me I can't figure out why players get so obsessed about sneaker deals and ignore the massive deals they are being offered in salary. He's going to need one hell of a sneaker deal to makeup for the nearly 100 million in lost revenues he's facing because of all of this nonsense. I also don't think that Kawhi is equipped to be The Man! His personality is not well suited to that sort of intensity. LA would be ok because Lebron would be the focal point. Philly would be ok because Embiid just eats up the limelight. Toronto would be tough, IMO. They won 59 games last year but were still pretty far from being a contender. Would Kawhi be able to carry them further or to the same point? How would he handle being the guy that every reporter wants to talk to after the game? DeRozan is a max contract guy. Not sure he provides max contract value, particularly in the playoffs.
