So Ante now conveniently becomes a basketball fan when Raps somehow made the finals?

Always a huge hoops fan. Just hopped back on the bandwagon during this run.

Raps fans have had nothing but heartbreak over the years with s.hitty draft picks, and "stars" bailing...

Leonard will bail too, but we'll enjoy this for now.

He's a life long Real, Toronto, ND, and Croatia fan. Deal with it.

Kawhi aint even make a stinky mean face for that, the robot just hustles back for defence. 99% of nba stars would shown off after that lol, Giannis included.

Kawhi's so rigid as a player though, no smoothness to his game at all.

Really? Don't think so at all. He's really agile and elegant IMO. I think I know where you're coming from cause at times he looks rigid, but the shooting and handling are extremely gracile.

At any rate, spectacular stuff by Leonard. Some of the best I've seen in years. This is in a new team, which had never gotten than far, and coming from injury. And contributing both in attack and defense,, scoring, playmaking, marking, blocking, cold in the free throws, etc.

I'd have said GSW to win 4-0, especially with the rest and if KD was back... But as a it is I could see Toronto winning at least a game or two. Game three should be crucial as always of course.

Huh? Are you mistaking flashy for smoothness? He is one of the nicest blend of power and smooth effective skill. His agility when attacking basket and his crisp fadaways and overall elegant shooting mechanics. No one that rigid would get the Jordan comparisons he gets.

Nah man, Kawhi got no elegance to his game - dude is a robot. Better to watch than Harden at least.

Plus he is Autism spectrum, nothing like Michael personality wise and Michael was a way smoother player than this dude. Everyone and their mama gets compared to Jordan btw, not taking anything away from Kawhi though he's beast.

He's got that broad shoulder upper body like a boxer, not that traditional lanky hooper look.

Uhh yea, because some Scandinavian Eskimos whose idea of basketball is throwing fish from an ice lake into a bucket know more about basketball than someone from Chicago.

Estonia was one of the pioneer basketball nations in Europe and one of the best on the continent in the 1930s. Our visiting teams absolutely destroyed the Russkies who hadn't even heard of setting picks yet.

But then unfortunately other nations outside the Baltics started to take it seriously too
