    I'm big laker fan and I will always say Kobe for life but kawhi reminds me a lot of Kobe. His defense might be better than Kobe's ever was and scoring ability if keeps going at the pace he's at now he could very well at the end of his career match Kobe or surpass him. His play shows me he is the best player right now.

    Kawhi is better. I don't even know what Durant would do if he is Kawhi's shoes rn. Saw him against Memphis in 2013 w/o Westbrook and he can't carry OKC past the Griz. KD just don't have that mental toughness to carry a team by himself. But put him in a team like GSW w/ less pressure, he becomes an assassin right away.

    Watch them find a way to disrespect LeBron after the finals is done. I can see it now: ( Raptors win one game ) Kawhi is now better than LeBron because his team manages to get one game from Golden State. LeBron couldn't. ( Because 2016 never happened, apparently )

    Raptors played great team defense, the crowded the paint, used a 3-2 zone defense to stop Giannis, took away Milwaukee’s confidence on shooting. Milwaukee hesitated more from the perimeter. Kawhi was great but it was a great overall effort and adjustment by Nick Nurse
