I would not give up the next 4 and 6 years of Brown and Tatum respectively for that one year of Kawhi - EVEN if it netted a guaranteed championship. You traded one of those guys to get Kawhi. To some extent the process, the regular seasons and the playoffs are worth more to me than the end result b/c I mostly like watching good basketball games. Of course the ultimate desire is to win, but as fans it is not like we 'get' anything for that.Im more in the Danny probably should’ve just traded for kawhi school of thought.
maybe he bounces, but you probably win it all in 2019 and that’s worth it.
I'm spoiled via seeing my teams win championships in multiple sports, so my fandom is similar to a player who has won a chip and then prioritizes the best situation versus just chasing rings. A very competitive team for 5+ years is much better to me than 1 championship and 4 no-title chance years.
