    Welp, I don’t like it, but these things are the doom of large dudes trying to play like little dudes.

    I doubt he lasts.

    Team Lebron curse continues. Cavs are imploding, All-Star team dropping like flies. Why do we want him again?

    if it weren't for the bizarre fultz situation, this one would be the leading story in the nba this year. what on god's green earth is happening there? must be very frustrating for both player and team. i do think the organization's tone about this has been odd.

    That Leonard doesn't trust his body and/or the Spurs training staff. Something doesn't feel right to him and he's pointing fingers right now. That's not unusual.

    What is unusual is how under the radar an MVP caliber player missing an entire season almost with no medical injury has been... interesting subplot here is Kawhi possibly turning on the Spurs and smudging the crystal reputation of that organization.

    Thibs running his players into the ground. Leading the league in minutes played. Hopefully he’ll be ok.

    Wow no one hit the knee and he wasn't even coming down from in the air. Kind of just made a step to the right and stopped and it buckled.

    I wouldn't waste a couple of seasons of my prime playing with grandpas like Gasol , Ginobili and Parker if I were a top 5 player in the league .

    I think Kawhi understands :

    1) The latest SAS offseason was horrible (mainly the Gasol deal) and even if LMA is a good player , he's definetely not the right player to go to war with in the postseason , the extension was a mistake if you're about winning titles .

    2) Even if SAS is a well respected organization , no legit superstar is going to join him ( probaby the reason why SAS sacrified significant cap space with Gasol and Mills deals).


    SAS just gave Leonard a reason to "justify" all of this with the mismanagement of his injury

    Another poor postseason on the way . The league is going to have a serious problem if the regular season > the postseason becomes a habit
