Bruce Bowen Blasts Kawhi Leonard For Abandoning His Team


In case you’re young, or just recently started watching the NBA, Bruce Bowen was one of the best defenders in NBA history. During his career, he was named to eight All NBA Defensice teams. Bowen is mostly known for his time with the San Antonio Spurs, with whom he won the NBA championships in 2003, 2005 and 2007.

On March 21, 2012, the Spurs retired Bowen’s #12 jersey. With Bowen’s permission, the Spurs reissued the number 12 for LaMarcus Aldridge in 2015.

You can see that he’s always remained a Spurs player at heart. Even though he now works as a color analyst for the Los Angeles Clippers, Bowen always speaks out on Spurs topics, too. Earlier this week, he harshly critizied and blasted Kawhi Leonard for abandoning his team.

SiriusXM Radio via ESPN:


“First, it was, ‘Well I was misdiagnosed.’ Look here: You got $18 million this year, and you think that they’re trying to rush you? You didn’t play for the most part a full season this year. And you’re the go-to guy, you’re the franchise and you want to say that they didn’t have your best interest at heart? Are you kidding me?

…. Not one time has Kawhi come out and said anything to the effect of, ‘You know what, hey, I really enjoy being in San Antonio.’ Or, ‘I can’t stand what’s going on here in San Antonio.’ Not one time has he said anything.”
