1. Offensive Machines
Since 1990, only FIVE teams have had 3 players averaging 20+ points: 90-91 Golden State Warriors (Run TMC), 2007-08 Warriors, (Monta, B-Diddy, Captain Jack), 2013-14 Sacramento Kings (Boogie, IT, Rudy Gay) 2016-17 Warriors, and 2017-18 Warriors (Steph, Klay, KD).
2. Kawhi open to leaving San Antonio to take less money?
In case you’re living under a rock, Kawhi Leonard has reportedly asked for a trade and would be willing to forego the Supermax and take less money. How much dough are we talking about here?
Leaving San Antonio means $80M lost for Kawhi Leonard, as his maximum contract extension with a new team is restricted to 4 years, $139M (5 years, $219M were he to sign w/ the Spurs).
