Oddsmakers believe Raptors are favorites to land Kawhi Leonard

The recruitment of Kawhi Leonard, who is still on the Spurs, has been a long, strange road. Now it seems there's been another sharp turn. 

Is there a new favorite to acquire the Spurs' star forward? Is there something the oddsmakers know that we don't. OddsShark named the Toronto Raptors on Thursday as even-money favorites to land Leonard.

Leonard's name has swirled in rumors with the Lakers, Clippers, 76ers, Celtics, and now the Raptors. Which team will he play for next season? 

This past season, the two-time Defensive Player of the Year only appeared in nine games with a mysterious quad injury.

Steph wetter? Curry jumps into Lake Tahoe after losing bet to Dell

Steph Curry lived up to his Splash Brother moniker on Sunday, and jumped into Lake Tahoe after losing a bet with his father, Dell Curry, at the American Century Championship.

The Splash Father bet the Splash Son he would trail by fewer than 20 points at the end of the tournament. The elder Curry had room to spare on Sunday, too, and was just 18 back of his son. 

The two-time MVP was a man of his word. 

 

Last year, the Currys made the same bet, and it was Dell Curry who had to purify himself in the waters of Lake Tahoe. He tied for 30th at the event this year, while Curry tied for 11th.

Move over, China Klay. Tahoe Steph is making a "triumphant" return of his own. 

Last summer, Warriors guard Steph Curry unsuccessfully tried dunking on a hoop on the course at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe.

On Friday, the hoop made it 2-0. 

Would Golden State remain resounding favorites to three-peat as NBA champions if the team had to play every game in golf attire? Maybe that's how commissioner Adam Silver can achieve "parity of opportunity."
