With the Lakers freeing up enough cap space to sign a max free agent, they've forced themselves into the Kawhi Leonard sweepstakes. Though a super team with LeBron, Anthony Davis, and Kawhi would be fun to watch, here are three reasons why it doesn't really make sense.
3. If It Ain't Broke...
Not one month ago, Kawhi Leonard won the NBA Finals with the Toronto Raptors. The roster will be almost identical when next season kicks off, so why leave a certain situation if there's a proven history that the formula works?
2. Quite Confidence
Kawhi has never been one for the drama. To the point that it's become a meme, Leonard expresses a personality that makes it obvious he's not a fan of drama and headlines. The idea of him signing with a team that's been on the front page of the tabloids for months doesn't seem likely.
1. Sharing the Spotlight
Even dating back to his early Spurs days, Kawhi has sneakily always been the best player on his team. That didn't change in Toronto. Leonard seems to thrive off of being at the center, and signing with the Lakers could very easily make him the third best player on the roster.
