I'm not as convinced. If he had been in Toronto for a long time, I'd expect a quick decision, but he hasn't. I mean if I was Kawhi, I'd probably be thinking about having it all. "Can the Lakers/Clippers offer me everything Toronto has (a chance to compete, a commitment to my health, a world class FO staff) and also give me a chance to live in California?" and these meetings are him exploring that.
He asks the Lakers about their recent struggles: Can they can clear up the drama and get back to basketball? Will they make his health as much a priority as the Raptors have? If they did want him, why weren't they the ones who traded for him last year?
I can only imagine he's asking the Clippers similar questions about health and why they didn't get him last year but also questions like: How do they expect to contend with LeBron and AD? Butler and Durant were clearly targets that they missed out on, how do they intend to spend that extra cap space now? Can they afford to load manage when they are trying to compete with the Lakers not only in basketball but also in an effort to grab more of the LA market?
I think it's still possible, even likely, that he goes out there and decides that, no, they can't offer what Toronto has, and re-signs with the Raptors. Or maybe he goes out there and decides that Toronto still has the better situation next year, and signs a 1+1 which would give him the opportunity to run it back with the same squad that just won the Championship and then try it with LA after Toronto loses a lot of its guys (Gasol, Ibaka, and maybe even Lowry are poised to exit next off season.)
As to the thirstiness of the Toronto fanbase I think the signs at the parade saying "Stay" and the "One/Five More Years" chants at the parade and the trending hashtags are just fine. I think any fans would do that. That's just the fans showing appreciation.
I am a little embarrassed by the free food, free drinks, free multi million penthouse apartment in the downtown core, free trips to Barbados, etc. That's a little overboard, and comes off as pretty desperate.
I also think Toronto needs to just chill, I post online, but I'm 99.9999% sure that Kawhi isn't spending his time on Primetimer reading my comments (but if you are out there Kawhi: Hi buddy! Thanks for the Chip!) Bothering him on the street isn't gonna be my bag. Don't get me wrong if I saw him at cactus club or home depot I'd probably whip out my phone to try and grab a candid shot, I might ask him for a selfie if he didn't seem busy (I've never really been shy about that kind of thing.) But screaming at him to stay or even asking that when he's trying to go about his business is a jerkbag move.
