  1. Let's put it this way Tony Parker didn't finish his career here so I'm automatically fuck Parker sooo you can imagine how much I'm throwing the finger to Kawhi as a life long spurs fan. He can take his statement and shove it!

  2. Lmaoo, this guy should have a press conference why is he hiding behind a letter. I want to see emotions and sincerity on his face. Not no damn letter

  4. DEAR PEOPLE::

    My name is Kawai, and my body is telling me that I need to say thank you to the Spurs, for giving me 20 million just to listen to my uncle telling me how wrong they are… I actually blamed them for everything, including my imaginary injury that healed up so soon they told me that I am leaving.
    I will go to LA, even if Spurs traded me to Canada for a cheap copy of Justin Trudeau eye-brows, my body is telling me that I could get injured there just as was in SA, pick up 20 million, and leave… Why? Becouse I can

  9. What if the whole Kawhi thing is just part of Pop's master plan!! Fake the drama, send Kawhi to Canadia for a year eh, acquire DeRozan in a "trade", resign Kawhi to a max deal in the 2019 off season. Lol, wouldn't that be some shit! And they say that LeBron ushered in player mobility within the league… Pop's playing chess while the rest of the league is playing checkers. Haha!

  11. The Spurs are Militaristic. Popavich is like a drill seargent. Kawhi wasn't HAPPY there. He thought basketball was supposed to be fun.

  12. Just because he does not talk much publicly does not mean he cannot communicate. This was a written statement why in there any question these are his words and his thoughts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. If the team doctors think he’s cleared to play, then he’s cleared to play. I don’t understand how trust, and emotions come into play when a diagnosis is based off of concrete evidence. Let’s be real, he did it so he wouldn’t lose the money, and left before the spurs headed towards their downfall. It’s really selfish and shitty behavior and I’m surprised none of y’all have come to realize that.

  16. "misdiagnosed by the spurs" but kawhi's personal doctors couldn't find what's wrong with him either. lol

  17. There is literally 0 rational/logical way that you can tell if Kawhi wrote that or not. Dumb point by Jay Williams.

  21. I'm a die hard Spurs fan going on 30 years now. Kawhi, you WERE my favorite player. I rocked the jersey, the pop toy, the rookie card and I always talked about how you are better than LBJ and KD with your 2 way skillset. So with that, I just want to say……FUCK YOU. You lying ass mofo. You exposed yourself as the coward and I'm glad you are gone. I don't want cowards on my Spurs team. We all know you were lying about the injury. So convenient for you that medical records are confidential, so the whatever second opinions you got will never be known. You knew what you were doing the whole time. You crawled away into a dark corner because you knew what you were doing was wrong. If you wanted out, just fucking be a man and speak up. You want to say thank you to your fans now…well…it's about a year too late asshole. We already moved on without you. And tell your uncle thanks for costing you over $50mil. You say you brought him on because of his banking experience. What kind of fucking banker is going to tell you to leave over $50mil on the table? Especially when they would be getting a cut of that??? Did your uncle think you could get more money from Jordan brand if you were playing in LA? You are what you are bro, a quiet coward. You are NOT marketable, not even in LA. Dueces homie! Just so you know we will be booing the shit out of you every time you come to OUR house. Get the fuck outta here.

  22. Media will turn you into a villain even if you say nothing. So youngsters, no need for tap dancing or PC answers, be yourself, say how you feel, you will never control the narrative anyway.

  39. Jalen rose need to stop saying the spurs misdiagnosed Kawhi Leonard when no Doctor outside of the spurs Doctors found anything wrong with his leg ….he was faking the injury most of the season think about it he had a injury that he only could play 9 games but he didn't need surgery in the off season?! ….& I hate when they bring up the Isiah Thomas situation Boston never wanted to pay him the big money the spurs no matter what was wrong with Kawhi injury they was going to get him the max with no problem!
