I had a sense Kawhi wasnt going to the Lakers when I saw LeBron show up to summer league in a damn hat that said Lebronland on the side. All of LBJ's promises to Kawhi about stepping back and letting it be his team were complete nonsense. Everyone knows that when you are on Lebron's team, it's his show and he runs everything. He cant have it any other way.Lebron screwed up here. I never considered the Lakers a real contender. It was always between the Clippers and Raptors. I always saw those meetings as kawhi doing his family as solid and meeting with their old favorite. But it was a 3rd man way down the list. He didn't want to be Lebron's lackey and he wanted his own show(and he should).
He should have known that and gone after other players. He exposed himself as a bigger fraud than ever. If Davis ends up being less than expected(and a larger reason than people want to admit why NO lost most of his tenure there), I could see Lebron just quitting and maybe retiring. His plain pandering for a man who was not going to cow tow with, Lebron really comes off looking weak. He should have looked for other pieces to build around and didn't. He wanted Kawhi to do the work while he rested. In my mind for AD, that looks weak............very very weak. He is basically putting you down as well.
