    If Kawhi joins the Lakers, how many championships would the team win?

        Kawhi should get bashed as much as KD did if he goes to the Lakers, taking the easy way to form a super team. Oh but James has never played on a super team. What.a bunch of bull. Another artificial creation of a super team. Can’t wait until James is out of the NBA.

          What parity that is a bunch of bull. It is a product of player colluding to form a team, no more drafting great teams. There are only maybe 2 or 5 teams a year that stand a chance. NBA is top heavy with a few good teams, rest are jokes. Do the pistons stand a chance ? That would be no.

                Why is Masai Ujiri maybe the best GM in the league?? Because he took a risk trading Derozen for Kawhi, then trading young Marc Gasol for older Marc Gasol?? I didn't even know who Masai Ujiri was before the Kawhi trade. Yet after making two trades he's the best??

                          Colin is missing the point it's not about 1 team dominating , it's about great players moving too much , if Klay Curry and Desmond hadda won 5 championships in a row nobody wud complain , but it was Durant joining them instead of competing against them is where the complaints come from

                            There is a clear distinction between Colin Cowherd and Skip Bayless. They both have very outlandish opinions, but Colin Cowherd can actually sound reasonable.

                              Parity is the NHL where almost any team can be knocked out of the playoffs at anytime. The NFL is also pretty good as it has about 5-7 new playoff teams every year, and the NFC is extremely unpredictable. If the Patriots didn’t exist the NFL would on par with the NHL in terms of parity. Meanwhile Colin is like “I want a big Superteam in big markets because I think parity is boring”

                                            Collin, I think you’re listening out of the wrong side of the stethoscope; you’re not discerning the pulse of the issue. Most people have no problem with “player movement,” its where the player moves to. The spikes in distaste with player movement as per your timeline, were in 2010&2015 (LBJ/KD) more so on KD. Most, outside OKC, had no problem with KD leaving. But when you’re arguably the second best player in the league at that time joining a previous 73-9 team, with the best shooting backcourt in NBA history, people get uncomfortable concerning parity.

                                              How does knowing exactly who the champion will be at the end of a season create parity? How does destroying parity create it?

                                                Los Angeles will fully Embrace Kawhi Leonard he is Kobe 2.0 he's Michael Jordan 3.0 he's the next evolution of that player able to turn the tide on both ends of the floor when he won the championship in finals MVP against the Heat he was a monster without the high usage rate yet and when they won again against the Heat oh my God are you kidding me I believe in the second the last championship he was in mvp2 against the Heat. Kauai with another team such as the Toronto Raptors has showed us why he is the number one player in all the world right now LeBron even when he got hurt and came back cannot take the like yours to the 8th seed in the West regardless if he doesn't go to LA or signs back with Toronto Lakers are good for the next 10 years roughly we have a d even though he's slightly injury-prone it will bring potential free-agent or two along the way we get Kawhi Leonard on with those two it's a dynasty regardless if they went immediately or the next 10 years Laker fans won't brace Kawhi why because he is Kobe 3.0 he is Jordan 3-point out he's the next Evolution outside of Michael Jordan and Kobe his game is similar to them but with the defense in Michael Jordan Scottie Pippen combined he's the next heir to the throne LeBron James is amazing the Kevin Durant is also equally as amazing the Kawhi Leonard is the true number one kingmaker since he won Finals MVP anyone who disputes that is an idiot it has not paid attention to basketball in the last 20 years.

                                                  Collin you're getting it wrong for one reason Laker fans will accept Kawhi for what he is the silent Superstar and that is fine kawayan ad for the next decade per se is the greatest Duo outside of Steph and Klay Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant LeBron James and Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh Shaq and Kobe will be reiterating into the conversation because of Kawhi Leonard in Anthony Davis

Different groups define it (emotionally, socially and politically) from their point of view. Therefore calling Toronto diverse is not necessarily a plus for Kawhi. It may not even be diverse in Kawhi’s opinion.

I believe it would be a lot more fun to watch, and this way all the good players would be able to compete against each other instead of teaming up to beat up on teams with inferior talent. I question how good these players really are. The NBA now reminds me of an AAU league. 😂😂😂
