If he stays it is obviously worth it . If he leaves a team that made or potentially wins the finals it was absolutely not worth it. In fact, it tells many superstar free agents that even with an amazing season ,trip to finals, and fans who love you, I still did not want to stay in Toronto long term. That is putting Toronto on a map for a location that most dont want to be in.
They have to get him to commit. I hope he leaves and heads west. Come on Doc, put your recruiting hat on.
You don't think winning a championship would make it worth it? This is Toronto we're talking about, they have a chance to win their first championship ever... and all they gave up was a forst rounder and players that were never going to get them even as close as they are now
I just can't see Kawhi leaving meaning that no superstars will ever play there. 1. Because I don't think they were lining up to play there before, so even if they did that wouldn't be much of a change 2. because different stars have different priorities. KD leaving OKC didn't stop PG from re-signing there, etc. and 3. Kawhi wanted out of San Antonio, so I don't know why players would assume that Toronto is a bad place to be if he wants out of there, too
I can definitely understand saying that the trade wasn't worth it if they don't win a chip (I'm on the fence about whether they need to win or not), but winning is the ultimate goal. If trading for Kawhi gets you there, it's worth it even if he leaves a year later
