Looks like Wolves owner wants Butler traded by tomorrow. If it's not to us I hope it's not to the Sixers, that would make them a bigger threat in the playoffs.
Or to the Cavs.

Plot Twist: Geez, imagine if Boston jumped in out of nowhere and offered up Jaylen Brown and someone else and a pick and got Butler, but keeping Tatum. Disappointed But Relieved Face

After everything I have heard about Kawhi not speaking I was thinking it might be because he's a poor communicator but I didn't see anything like that today, he simply chooses not to talk off the floor and let his play do the talking.

Or another really scary move would be if they traded Hayward for Butler but they won't go there even though it would put them in a beter position to compete vs GS.

I think he is just happy that he can play again without drama. Spurs must have really did him wrong if he feels happy playing for us right now. Face With Tears Of Joy

Whatever happens I will enjoy every game.

We all get to watch Kawhi in Raptors uniform. Smiling Face With Sunglasses

Agree. And the first preseason game was hot as fire. We saw pure defensive tactics, great movement of ball, and good communication from all players. A stellar bench as usual, and a team that hasn't lost it's rhythm.

Kawhi did not seem too happy, but he is definitely excited to play some b-ball after a long time! Green on the other hand looked exsctatic on the floor! Great first preseason game to display their talents.

IMO, these guys will definitely fair well in playoff time especially if they don't loose their rhythm. Kawhi, JV, Siakim, Lowry, VanVleet, Wright, Green, and Miles (if he continues his 3's), will definitely take us to finals, and maybe beyond.

It was the first pre-season game... Let's wait until halfway through the season to see how we fare before we get too excited and make predictions. One thing for sure though, is that we'll make the playoffs.

Danny Green is going to turn out to be one of the most valuable acquisitions we made this offseason. He is a really vocal guy on defense and will really help anchor any lineup that's thrown on the floor with him, from a defensive perspective. Kawhi is obviously a great one-on-one defender and two-way player, but Green is the guy that's going to elevate the team defense.

It is exciting to see what will become of this season.
