    Nah still doubting it. He will be back to play just in time for the WCF.

    either that or Paul George will lead the team to a ring and Kawhi will share the glory
    I get the same sense. Without Conley and with Mitc less than 100% and due for regression to the mean, I still think the Clippers have a better team and win this series.

    It didn't seem like it, but hopefully he tore his ACL. Not only because he deserves it, but because this would truly be the most open playoffs in at least modern history.

    They said originally that it was an ACL sprain. Even the least serious ACL sprains take 2-4 weeks to heal. Knowing how slow of healer Kawhi is I would put it at 4 weeks. That would make him out for the WCF if the Clippers are somehow won against the Jazz.

    Fair enough. Let's say you're right about the timeline: I still think they can win the West, pending Paul's prognosis. If he's good to go for game 1, hard to see him letting a golden opportunity like this slip through his fingers.

    The Karma wheel turns slowly sometimes, but it always turns.

    Iím wondering if he now wishes he had played that season in SA. Heís sitting on about 11 thousand points, and if itís an ACL, heíll miss most, or all of next season, and have a compromised recovery season after that. Heíll be 31 after the recovery season. Iíd say his HOF case is in doubt.
    You canít be serious lmao. He could retire today and get in. Ben Wallace is getting inducted ffs.

    If it’s 4 weeks then there is no chance he will be back for the WCF.

    Ben Wallace was a travesty. Kawhi also doesn’t have the defensive chops that Wallace had. K had maybe 3 dominant years. Ben terrorized the paint for a decade.

    Other than the horrible induction of Wallace, I think every other US NBA player to be inducted in the last 40 years has bumped up against or exceeded 20 K points. Kawhi has 11K, a damaged quad, and a blown knee, and will turn 30 in a few weeks.

    No, I mean the Clippers can finish off the Jazz (in their current state) and the Suns (if Paul has to miss time) without him.

    They’re not very good without Kawhi. They can win games, but not series. For s sake, their best player right now is Playoff Pee.

    He’s one of three players to win finals MVP on two different teams and one of 10 players to win DPOTY multiple times. KL is a lock right now IMO.

    Cornbread Maxwell won a FMVP for Boston, and has about 600 less points scored, and he’s not in the HOF.

    Don't know if they stay small to start or go big (guessing the former), but either way George, Morris, Batum, Jackson, Beverley, Zubac, Kennard, Mann, with Rondo, Cousins, Patterson as ancillary options, is still a viable rotation, especially given the compe ion.

    Neither the Jazz nor Suns have a superstar either nor are they teeming with creators.

    If they lose game 5 to the Jazz they will lose the series. If they somehow win the series and play the Suns I have heard Chris Paul could comeback for game 4. All the Suns would have to do is win 1 out of 3 games without Chris. If they are down 2-1 instead of 3-0 then the Suns will win the series with Chris being back.

    ....."The Clippers had said on Tuesday that Leonard was fine after not being listed on the injury report ahead of this crucial Game 5. Now, Leonard appears to be out for at least Wednesday and could be in danger of missing the rest of the series. This could mean Leonard went for an MRI or additional testing yesterday that revealed something else, something potentially more serious. Thatís the only reason you would think Kawhi would miss such a big game."

    I hate the guy just as much as anyone but I would never wish injury or be happy when the injury happens. When he pulled his I just wished he wouldn’t ever win anything ever again and hoped he would be a complete failure after the Spurs made him into what he became

    And then PG13 delivered a Durantesque 37-16-5 to take the series lead and a chance to finish it at home. I hate it but the ESPN guys love it. So much drama in this years playoff.

    This is a brilliant move from Kawhi. If it was an acl tear, they would have confirmed it. He is pushing his teammates to step their games up, and he has successfully done that. This team truly looks out for each other. Kawhi will be back in the WCF as this injury is not truly that bad. Clips are winning it all.
