So, it finally happened, huh? Kawhi Leonard finally got his wish to be done with the San Antonio Spurs. After all of last season’s tomfoolery, he’s now free of the clutches of Gregg Popovich and company. Now, in a year’s time, we’ll see if Leonard sticks with the Toronto Raptors. All I know is, DeMar DeRozan got royally fucked by a team he was loyal to.
Ok, for those who missed it, the Spurs traded Leonard and Danny Green to the Raptors for DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected first-round pick. Now, it’s no secret that Leonard wanted out of San Antonio. Hell, he already made it abundantly clear that he wasn’t going to cooperate with the Spurs. I mean, he stopped returning phone calls, he dodged meetings AND he failed to show up to any playoff games. On the real, what else could he have possibly done, son? Anybody could see that he was ducking any and everything, man.
Keeping it a buck, I feel like Leonard has acted like a bitch this entire process, fam. Look, wanting to leave is one thing, but by all accounts, he was wildly unprofessional, bruh. Since when is it cool to not report for work AND not keep in contact with management? Real talk, if any regular person tried that, we’d be on that unemployment line fast and in a hurry, son. Listen, we’re all adults here, man. If Leonard was really that unhappy with the organization, then be a grownup and tell them, brethren. Shit, he really had EVERYONE guessing what was going on in his head.
To make matters worse, there were all of these rumors that he only wanted to go to the Los Angeles Lakers. Then, after LeBron James joined the team, reports came out that he didn’t want to be “second fiddle” to James. Man, can this dude knock it the fuck off, son? So, he doesn’t want to play for the Spurs, he doesn’t want to play for the Raptors AND he doesn’t want to play with LeBron? Well, what the fuck does this dude want, fam? All I can say is, as talented as Leonard is, I don’t think he’s good enough for all of the bullshit around him, bruh.
In the end, shout-out to DeRozan, son. Ultimately, it’s a damn shame that he got caught up in Leonard’s nonsense, man. By and by, I hope he’s able to do some damage with LaMarcus Aldridge next season. In addition, I hope the Raptors are ready for the fuckery of Leonard. At the end of the day, he could easily dip after next season and Toronto could end up with nothing. Furthermore, we’ve already seen that Leonard will sit out a season, fam. Look, they better hope that giving up DeRozan, a lifelong Raptor, was worth it, bruh. That is all. LC out.
