Lakers and Spurs Resume Kawhi Leonard Trade Talks

The Boston Celtics have been linked with trading for Kawhi Leonard

If you're trying to maintain the belief that there's bad blood between Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, you probably should just give up at this point. George is reportedly "seriously considering" a return to the Oklahoma City Thunder, but has not ruled out the Lakers either.

"I saw someone tweeted last night how much of an overpay the deal proposed in there would be for Kawhi Leonard - which was, by the way, [Markelle] Fultz, [Dario] Saric, [Robert] Covington, their rookie Zaire Smith and their Miami pick from 2021 to get Kawhi".

Therefore, although the opportunity was clearly there, neither of them took the bait to publicly badmouth one another, denying the National Basketball Association a major feud between superstars. When healthy, Leonard has proven to be one of the league's top players, and always seems capable of being in the conversation for the MVP award, which is why it really isn't a surprise to see all these teams expressing interest. James himself has given little indication where he intends to play, maintaining that he himself does not yet know.

Now, folks, we get to the fun part. "It was a great moment, for sure". The Cleveland Cavaliers star will decide whether or not to opt in to the final year of his contract with the Cavs by Friday. LeBron could reasonably decide that joining the Houston Rockets' two superstars on the team that nearly knocked off Golden State offers him his best chance to get a ring, in spite of the questionable fit both money-wise and style-wise. I'm the reigning two-time NBA Finals MVP.

Kyrie: "I mean, if we're talking strictly based off stats, he checks every mark". That's because 13-year-old "Bronny", a highly regarded basketball player in OH, is very "likely" to enroll at a prestigious Los Angeles high school, according to a TMZ Sports report Wednesday, although it's apparently "not a done deal".

Therefore, it seems as though there's very little potential for any negative drama to happen between the two moving forward.

    With Senegal and Japan both on four points, Colombia and Senegal could both progress with a draw but only if Japan lose to Poland. But the problem for Senegal is they've also conceded three goals, which is where I think Colombia can take that advantage.
