Kawhi turned down the Lakers in free agency, choosing to go with their Staples Center co-tenants. It infuriated some Purple and Gold fans as they felt like Leonard played the team, opting to prolong his decision so that they will miss out on some of the best available free agents back then.
Still, the Lakers rebounded well after missing out on Leonard. Shortly after Kawhi chose the Clippers, Rob Pelinka and Co. signed Jared Dudley, Troy Daniels, Danny Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Quinn Cook and Avery Bradley. They also brought back Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
Unfortunately, some Laker fans always think that they’re playing 2k and that their team can get anyone they want in just a blink of an eye. In reality, Kawhi just created balance in the NBA, something that we’ve never seen over the past five years.
It’s not like the Lakers aren’t championship contenders. In fact, they are, but things will not be easy as opposed to if they have signed Leonard.
