Chiney Ogwumike says the LA Clippers should "trust the process" and keep building if they don't get Kawhi Leonard in NBA free agency. Ogwumike says they have such a strong nucleus that blowing that up to risk getting a free agent isn't worth it.

Man this is getting brutal. Raptors aren't a "periphery" team. He got them over the hump. For him to win a Chip with the Clippers he'd be carrying them on his back from the very bottom of the mountain. Is he suppose to make the Clippers a top 4 team while doing load management? Nah.

ESPN Shills! How much they getting paid by the clippers. Blah Blah Blah about the Clippers front office.. meanwhile the Raptors front office head Masai, is the one in demand... who's the better performing front office right now? Raptors. @Espn.. stop shilling and just give us the info we want. Good thing i don't pay for an ESPN subscription!

Taking a team from the periphery? You seriously slandering a team that has been in the playoffs for the past 6 years and has been in the top 4 of the east for the last 5? Keep up being completely useless ESPN your continued incompetence makes everyone else look better

You all need to get off this stupid tangent! So Kawhi should just throw away another 40, 50 million after he lost enough leaving San Antonio!

Can ESPN be charged for "tampering"? There hasn't been a single player in NBA history that left a championship team to play for another team for any reason...closest thing to it would be Michael Jordan leaving the Bulls to retire. Masai took a gamble & it paid off, let us have it.

People it’s simple: ESPN has a vested interest in stars playing in the bigger U.S. markets. That’s where their biggest advertising revenue comes from. Which is why they always promote NYC and L.A. teams even though they’re garbage. Any player serious about winning will look at teams like Toronto, Milwaukee and a handful of others. The Clippers are not amongst those teams and have done little to warrant relevancy. Which makes it obvious guys like SAS, Damon Jones, Broussard, etc. are promoting made up narratives about the Clippers being favourites to land Kawhi. The US media will be on suicide watch when Kawhi resigns.

It's just hilarious that if Kawhi had won on the Clippers last year, no one would be saying that he should go to the Raptors to build his legacy. The bias is ridiculous. ESPN would be questioning why Kawhi would want to leave the defending champs, etc etc.

2021 free agency is WAY deeper and was always the Clippers plan. They didn't expect to have a shot this soon. They already made it clear they will focus on 2021 not 2020 if they strike out on Kawhi.

LOOOOL Philly 'built well for the future for so long'...they tanked to get draft picks. Bravo. Raptors are a much better example of building a team while actually competing, not just tanking. So little credit given to Raps by ESPN

Imagine? Why I gotta imagine? I just spent the last three years seeing how hated the Warrriors were. You think Kawhi is gonna trade in being THE solo rockstar of the league for being the last one to join a super team and be in the KD hater spot? Well all I can say is it's a damn good thing you ain't his brand manager.

How would winning with a third team be better for Kawhi's "legacy?" MJ won all his titles with Chicago. He seems to be doing okay and there is nothing wrong with Jordan's brand- pun intended.

lol uhh I think both teams are similar ,defensively both are solid ,both have great front offices,but people fail to realize that clippers weren’t even trying to make the playoff they traded all there valuable assets and still won 48 games,I’m sure that counts for something they have the appeal,that Toronto had which is ,I come and bring a championship to the team ,something that no one has never done before,I don’t think he leaves but if he does clippers on paper can really do something as well,plus the team is a whole lot younger

The American media is pushing the Clippers narrative because they can make so much more money off Kawhi in LA than TO. Never have we once heard from KAWHI that he wants to play in LA. But they successfully implanted the idea that Kawhi is going to LA in our heads.
