They’ll cancel each other out and be completely normal.

I think the FA class isn't THAT weird, they just have very distinctive personalities...

KD: intensely insecure
Kawhi: a huge loner
Buckets: competitive to the point of being a psychopath in some ways
Klay: Just kinda goofy, not much to him otherwise really
Kyrie: outlier weirdo

Do we even know that Kawhi is a loner? I feel like we do a lot of assuming about him based on being kind of a reserved guy in the public light.

he is so immensely insecure that he's going to be frustrated by anyone having a good games even if he is the #1 scorer; hell, it's clear that he isn't going to go anywhere without someone to cover up his flaws on the court, anyway.

Yeah that's probably more accurate. He's just reserved/introverted which is fine.

Kawhi was making millions and was still driving around in a shitty 90s Tahoe, there’s definitely something not normal for NBA standards about him. Just seems to be the least flashy guy ever.

Or he doesn't care about cars and has a good financial adviser that he actually listens to. It's unusual, but wouldn't say weird.

Never wanted to believe Stephen A. Smith more than ever. I don't believe this will happen. But I want this to happen more than anything now.



Not just because It will make our team better, but Corey would lose his shit

Glad we got the Klay re-signing out of the way so we don't have to pretend he's going anywhere

He made $61M with the Spurs. You can buy a new car and not have it be an irresponsible purchase.

Oh I know. I'm not saying it would have been irresponsible, it's just that cars aren't assets. So if you aren't getting joy from a nicer one, any car more expensive than the bare minimum you need is a waste of money.

Didn't Carson Palmer refuse to spend a dollar he earned during his career until he retired or whatever because his family was rich

I guess I should have said maybe he just doesn't care about cars?

Haha you're talking to someone who works through the weekend, so no friday here.

Knew Harrison Barnes would be back but god the Kings Kangz'd it up and bid against themselves. I expected them to overpay but 4yr/$88M is ridiculous. Why the rush to offer that? Who out there that has cap space was gonna offer him anything close to this?

money aside, Barnes did play well with the Kings, taking on a role more suitable to his actual talent level. Kings still have plenty of cap space available and are 2-3 yrs out from having to pay Fox/Bagley, so they're in good shape. Still not a smart move to lock him up to that immediately when they could have waited for the market to set his price.
