Funny how we don't bat an eye when someone leaves an employer after what felt like devoted service -- we just move on. But when someone leaves an sports team under questionable circumstances seemingly motivated by money or fame, one can become a bit disenchanted with the individual. Kawhi was certainly the missing piece the Raptors have needed for some time now - We The North are only too happy to have him - and to be fair, he has embraced life in The Big Smoke in a very open - even dare I say - gracious manner endearing him to fans right from the get-go.
Feel free to post anything unrelated to wet shaving or men's grooming (I.e. cars, watches, pens, leather goods. You know, the finer things of life).
I have liked the Spurs for several years, but I apparently slept through the recent drama with #2. Players come and go. I wish Mr. Leonard well, I wish the Spurs well, and I wish the Raptors well. I congratulate the Warriors for having won several championships, but now I'm bored with the Warriors' success, and I believe now would be a good time for them to experience losing this series. I hope the Raptors can take advantage of this opportunity to win their own championship, for the team's sake and for all of their fans.
I’m completely gobsmacked by the Raptor’s performance. I’m happy for the team and for Toronto, but not being a supporter of professional sport as it stands today, I’m not emotional about it.
Stunning outcome which shows what perseverance can do. Now we just have to see if our hockey team can pull their collective fingers out and start being the Maple Leafs instead of the Maple Laughs; however, being a follower of the Habs I’m biased.
The fun part for me was explaining to all my hockey fan co-workers and acquaintances the difference between block-charge. One guy even commented that he thought basketball was a non-contact sport. He was wrong ......
Now that the dust has settled, it seems that the pro basketball player base is changing dramatically. I am personally not pleased to see that a group of folks on both coasts are loading their respective teams with all the talent money can buy, and the fans in the fly-over cities are getting kicked in the teeth in a manner of speaking. Reminds me of an old saying from a book I read a long time ago regarding the real estate industry: Rule Number One --- GET THE MONEY!
