The league will never allow it to be anyone but Cleveland and Golden State in the finals.

Wow, league is a complete joke now. Demarcus Cousins signs with the warriors. 

Has an achilles injury, so he couldnt get a max contract this year. 

Warriors starting 5 now consists 5 all star talents if Cousins can come back and be the same player he was before the injury.

$5.3M / 1yr.

Joke contract.

Every team should play their D League roster against the Warriors this year.  Let them go 82-0 and see if they can turn it on after a year of essentially nothing but practice.

Raps apparently are the odds on favourite to land Kawhi Leonard.  Rumors are that one is DeRozan or Lowry + would be heading back.  Not sure what the plus is... And there's virtually zero chance that Leonard resigns here so it's basically for one year of him.  If they do this, Masai really is putting all his eggs into the 2018-2019 basket.

This might be their best chance to reach the NBA Finals.  There aren't a lot of other moves out there.  Maybe Kawhi Leonard becomes best friends with Drake and he stays for a long time.

To add fuel to the fire, DeRozan word his Instagram clean a day or two ago.  Maybe he knows something we don't.

Let's say DeRozan is part of the deal... And Leonard does leave as a FA.  This is an easy way to get a rebuild going, by clearing out DeRozan's longer contact as well.

Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick

Pick is protected 1-20.  If the Raps don't give up the first then it becomes two 2nds.

Bold move, but I think its a great fucking move. Gives them a lot of options going forward. Getting out of Demars deal is big. 

I love DeMar, but he just isnt going to lead you to an NBA finals. Kawhi is a legit top 5 talent, MVP player.

Only problem I have is how they lied to DeMar.

Dude does not want to be in Toronto. This could get ugly.

If he wants to get paid he'll play here and play well.  He won't resign, that's for sure... But really is they don't get to the finals this year, there's gonna be a rebuild anyway.

Told him he wouldnt be traded and then traded him a week later.

Thats how the business goes I guess, but it sucks.

what's the point of trying to get to the finals if you know you're just going to lose in the finals?

Why bother playing at all then.  Just forfeit the seasons until Golden State gets old.

Meh.  GMs and coaches are told they're safe all the time and then get canned.  This opportunity probably didn't present itself a week or two ago.
