    1:00 that point is invalid because the extra point you get from the 3 point shot makes it 1.5x more effective than the 2. Kawhi is shooting 50% from the field this season, Klay is shooting about 42% from 3. That’s like Klay shooting 63% from the field.

    Honestly it depends on where klay is at mentally. If he was money and fame more than he has now and wants to maximize the asian marketplace L.A. is the spot. He probably wont make it anywhere playoffs wise. LBJ more uncertain than ever. I know he'll bounce back. But if Klay wants to have say in his organization and wants to solidify his status in the bay area and established markets, he may want to consider resigning. If he wants good money and to stay with that franchise hes gonna have to jockey offers to raise the salary but then resign after reaching a do-able # with Joe Lacob.

    The talk should be about Warriors winning 3 straight and where that puts them on all time list. Not breaking them up. I never once heard in any sport media make it their mission to break up a team in their prime that was winning. This is why I need KD and Klay to resign and GS to win 4 straight and set history. Media Lebron disciples know that if Lebron doesnt win a ring next year he is done winning in the NBA. That is why they are trying to break up GS this off season. Problem is, GS knows this and will not make it convenient for Lebron and his media worshipers. Hell KD will resign a long term max deal just to piss off haters.

    Media and nba have an agenda to push lebron as the hero of the league like they did to great success with Jordan but he ain’t like mike and it’s embarrassing and pointless ,the nba makes more money when l.a is in the finals as they are the original bandwagon and was a cash cow during Kobe n shaq era ,the media is based in l.a so it’s better for them too, nba is about money off the court and I love that the warriors have ruined their plans to make lebron the king

    Everyone need to chill on the media making narrative for the Lakers fact is Lakers said they want to get a big free agent this offseason they mad the money for it so the media will do media things and talk about witch free agents they think could get and who Lakers might be looking for they not necessarily saying it’ll happen there just saying what Lakers will try chill with all the media on Lakers dicks I’ve heard 100 of times people say kawhi to clippers and no one cry’s then and kd to nyc no one cry’s then or Kyrie to nyc Buttler to nyc so on

    Lakers should not acquiesce to Lebron, they need to be thinking about building for after Lebron. Keep Kuzma, bring in Klay or Kyrie, shop Lebron(Davis, beal) for whatever you can get and build the right way instead of thinking James is going to get you a quick championship. How do the Lakers know that the presence of Lebron is keeping top level free agents away.?What if Paul George would have signed with the Lakers if Lebron wasn't there.?

    Lakers is not and will not be making to WCF in anytime soon. Don’t matter if they get Klay or AD. Warriors are too great of a team. Nothing will beat the warriors. They will keep winning championships back to back to back.. and so on. Even if weak ass Melo gets traded to Lakers. Still not a factor.
