  2. If this take was about LeBron… they would’ve GRILLED him for not taking that shot .. just saying

  3. Kobe would’ve took the last shot which just proves Kobe was more clutch stupid ass max Kellerman. Kawhi is a great player but not better than Kobe.

  4. Imagine if Kyle Lowry made that shot. Walk off 3 point buzzer beater to win the NBA Finals at home… Drake would’ve dropped a new song called “Kyle Lowry”

  5. Kawhii is not a good enough dribbler and passer to pass out of a double team. Look at how many plays break down when he is trapped. That's the next step he has to take to be at the level of Lebron, KD, Kobe. A superstar needs to make plays when being doubled or tripled.

  6. Why the hell would the Raptor coach call time-out while his team is hot, on a 10 point run?
    Why would he do something so dumbass, unless he called time-out to cool off his own team.
    THIS SHIT IS FIXED!!! AND FAKE!!!

  7. Things already happened but for me Kawhi should take the last shot, if he is fouled out during the shooting, he will take 2 freethrows, or either lowry should pass to Marc Gasol because he is open even a final seconds and hit the jumper..that's should be..but its ok..there should be a winner and looser in every game..better luck next time toronto

  8. Thats unfair to say Kawhi made the wrong play. He got blitzed with the double team with maybe 5 sec left and he had to get it out of his hands fast. You dont get to pick and choose who you want to pass to when theres only 5 seconds left in the game. If there was anything else Kawhi could have done, KAwhi could have kept his dribble a little longer before giving it up. Kawhi immediately picked up his dribble when he got doubled so he had to pass at the point.

  9. Kawhi made the right play by passing out of the double team and not turning the ball over, and VanVleet quickly made the right decision too by passing to Lowry who was left open in the corner by Iggy to double team Kawhi, but Marc Gasol should've gone and made a screen in front of Lowry once he saw the ball went to VanVleet, but he didn't, he didn't even try to stop Draymond, who is the man defending himself, to rotate to the corner to contest Lowry's shot. If there must be one to blame on this last play, it's Marc Gasol. He shouldn't have let Draymond get to Lowry that easily, considering there's no time left for Lowry to do anything else rather than to take the last shot.

  10. Not all double teams are created equal…that was a hard double where you need to kick it…..in comparison…Lebrons pass to korver in the corner was a soft double, Draymond never fully committed. Iggy ran TO Kawhi….Lebron dribbled TOWARDS Draymond. Its different.

  15. Give it a break guys. Leonard did nothing wrong. If the shot had gone in you would not be saying any of this. It is armchair easy afterwards.
