Game 1 is just the first step. They can offer him more money and term than any other team, as well as a medical comfort zone.
Leonard has been as advertised in his first - and quite possibly only - season with the Raptors.
The six-foot-eight Anunoby has averaged 7.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 20.2 minutes per outing in 67 games in his sophomore season.
PISTONS 115, KNICKS 89: Luke Kennard scored 27 points, Reggie Jackson had 21, and Andre Drummond added 20 points and 18 rebounds as Detroit won at NY to lock up the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot. "I want to go back to who I was before taking on this job". The hope is that Leonard can be the difference. Unfortunately for the Clippers, they didn't enjoy postseason success, as they never advanced beyond the second round.
Leonard won't be out there alone.
JaVale McGee, who established himself as a solid NBA center, believes the Lakers are still irresistible to any player or executive with the proper perspective on basketball and life.
It's with all this in mind that we should consider the latest odds from Bovada on who will run the Lakers, with Griffin as the betting favorite at +175. Put him on the ball, it's hard.

Each major astrophysics discovery of the last few decades tends to confirm Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. And a quick glance will show you that it doesn't look anything like Gargantua, the black hole in the movie Interstellar .
"But it's a team effort". "Maybe in the past we needed him to do that and also get 20 (points)". That's something we can rely on, this team.
"So I think in that sense, it was very similar". I honestly didn't question it one bit.
The Raptors and Magic split their regular-season series. Parsing out exactly how Leonard contributed is tricky, defensive metrics being what they are.

As Lowry and DeRozan went, so did the team. Lamb is coming off a career-best season that included three game-winning shots (one of them the 50-foot heave in Toronto).
"Obviously it's been a long process", Ball added.
Johnson, on the other hand, just up and quit on his "sister" Jeanie Buss, and is leaving the team without a head of basketball operations in the lead-up to what will likely go down as the most crucial offseason in Lakers basketball this decade. "You still have to respect [that], but I think he keeps getting better and better". The team has not made the playoffs since 2013. Sometimes you have great shooting nights and sometimes you're not. What you're not going to do is reinvent yourself because it's a playoff game. The Raptors have also lost three series over that same period in which they had home-court advantage, even though National Basketball Association teams have a win probability at home of about 65 per cent in the playoffs.
