Kawhi choosing the Lakers would be a huge mistake
As everyone anxiously refreshes their Twitter feeds, waiting for Kawhi Leonard to make his free agency decision, fans of the Lakers and Raptors are making their case why they would be the best fit for Leonard.
While the Lakers’ superteam pitch is appealing on the surface, Gottlieb thinks it would be a huge mistake for Leonard. In addition to the front office chaos that has consistently been in the headlines and recent losing culture, it’s not clear how Leonard would share the ball with James and Davis, or new coach Frank Vogel for that matter.
Toronto, on the other hand, has made Kawhi the centerpiece of their organization, have already won a title with him, and head coach Nick Nurse has established a trust with Leonard and shown a willingness sit him during the regular season. Oh, and he’s Canada’s national hero. If he chooses the Lakers uncertainty over that, it would be a big mistake.
