                                    0:17 this is very computer cpu like of Kawhi. To be able to predict a pass and intercept the ball especially without facing it. Awkwardly evading his body and going for the steal. Incredible.

And there lies the problem, I'm not watching basketball 4 in the morning with work next day. Thats why the sorry ass Raptors gotta step the fuck up tonight and win. Lowry, Green, GASOL. Just step up.

Kawhi is amazing though, I just can’t pick him over Kobe and be intellectually honest with myself. Hopefully he can turn this series around and win the championship. I’ve been rooting for him ever since I realized how much of a cult my spurs are.

                                                                                    There is really no shame in getting ripped by the most likely greatest perimeter defender of all time and one if the greatest defenders of all time.
