The Spurs Burned Kawhi Leonard In Their Farewell Message


As you’ve heard by now, the Toronto Raptors have traded DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Pöltl and a 2019 first round pick to the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green.

This finally marks the end of the Kawhi Leonard and San Antonio Spurs saga, which definitely was one of the weirdest NBA stories in recent history. That is why there has been a lot of buzz around Kawhi this past season, for a lot of reasons. His stellar play, we’ve gotten used to, wasn’t part of it though.

Even though he was medically cleared, Leonard still chose to be out and went weeks without communicating with the team. In the playoffs, while other injured stars were attending their team’s games, supporting them from the sidelines, Leonard was nowhere to be seen. Then, after the season, Kawhi asked for a trade.

The situation was irreversible and the relationship between Leonard and the Spurs irreparable.

In their farewell tweets to Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard, the Spurs threw a little shade at Kawhi for one last time. Maybe it was coincidental, but that’s as hard to believe as someone mixing up the words ‘would’ and ‘wouldn’t’. Be it as it may, eventually the Spurs chose to use two different font sizes for Danny Green’s and Kawhi’s ‘thank you’.
