    All these Raptor fans "love" Kawhi this season and want him to remain in Canada … watch all the "hate" when Kawhi leaves to go to LA like he intended, BEFORE the trade.

    Stephen A is beating a dead horse. The "nothing beats home cooking" narrative is overrated. Look at all the NBA stars from southern California that have opted to stay where they are…or at least NOT go home to LA: Paul George, Russell Westbrook, Demar DeRozan and Kevin Love. Why aren't they playing on LA teams??? Why is it all the sudden, such a big deal for Kawhi?

    Omari was making good points up until he started implying Kawhi is ‘one of the best 2 guards ever’, Kawhis not a 2 guard!!

    why are Toronto Raptors fans so insecure about where they are placed in the Toronto pecking order of pro sports. Weird!!! Just enjoy the sport and stop crying so much.

    Listen Canadians know when to give a sport it’s due. Right now it’s all basketball up north. Don’t get me wrong it can’t supplant hockey. But right now it’s the lead everywhere in the country. Except maybe Alberta cause they’re kinda… you know

    Whats the stanley cup go to do with Toronto! Its the bruins vs blues Raptors are what Toronto and Canada media will b the focus

    (June 8, 2019 - 5:00 pm)

    Yo I wanna smoke what Max is smoking because you have to be completely delusional to think we talking about hockey right now. Everything on TV is Raptors, everything on the radio is Raptors, I've been going around town everything coming out of people's mouths is Raptors. Max must be on some good shit

    I dont think he really wants to stay honestly..he seems like a hometown guy..he wants to go home..I bet his personality loosen up if he goes home and plays..

    I love how they pander to the crowd because they are there.

    I love Basketball.

    (June 8, 2019 - 5:00 pm)

    Wtf is the Stanley cup? Golf tournament?

    mariamotionwork

    (June 8, 2019 - 5:00 pm)

    Max has no idea and nothing to compare this with. Basketball has taken over the conversation in Toronto. Hockey still gets coverage but it’s barely a blip compared to the usual.

    (June 8, 2019 - 5:00 pm)

    I'm trying to root for Toronto since I've never like the warriors cause they are my Spurs enemy and Kawhi left us on a bad note ! It's hard so I go back and forth but I think deep inside I do like the Raptors a little bit better !!😂
