  • Published on May 26, 2019
  • Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry address the media in a press conference after a thrilling Game 6 Toronto Raptors win vs. the Milwaukee Bucks.

    Kawhi is such a low key superstar. He doesn't care if he is considered the "best player" on the planet. This is the kind of discussion the US media/sports commentators love to argue about (Max and Stephen, Skip and Shannon, etc). Shannon loves Kawhi but Skip can't stand "the number 2" guy. Who cares??? As long as Kawhi and the Raptors are winning, that's it all matters. Canada will gladly take "the number 2" guy any time of the day. :-)

    I'm a GSW fan. I'm rooting for them regardless.
    That said, if they lose this year, Raptors are the team that makes me least upset.
    Love Kawhi. Wish more players had his disposition or close to it.
    Go GSW! But if all else fails, sincere congrats to Raptors. It would be a well deserved and overdue win.

    Congrats to Kawhi for bringing Toronto to the Finals, but I’m more happy for Gasol, Lin, Serge (again), Lowry and Meeks for getting to the summit. If Raps bring it home like I think they could I’ll shed tears for those guys lol

    With all this Beat Player talk, I don’t wanna hear KD vs Kawhi... Kawhi been with Raptors ONE Season & took them to Finals when they never been there. KD joined the Warriors for this type of Limelight. Kawhi shouldn’t be compared to Nobody but Lebron & MJ as far as Greatness goes.. all these Free Agents that wanna Team up together are tryna do EXACTLY WHAT KAWHI JUST DID!!

    👏👏👏👏👏This man here, is a good example on what the NBA should be. No drama, humble and his appreciation towards the game is highly respectable. Unlikely others who feed on the drama instead of the game.🙏

    Just win and while you doing it shut up Skip Bayless hating ass. If you can't say it I will say it for you just be quiet and watch him win Skip if he don't win at least he get there. Where your Spurs at fishing or riding that long ass boat back to San Antonio.
