Reports Hint At Reasons Behind Kawhi Leonard's Feud With The Spurs

Kawhi Leonard

If the Raptors want to make it work in 2018-19, they are going to need Lowry to accept the fact that DeMar DeRozan may not have been treated fairly, as well as getting used to having Leonard as a teammate.

Green disclosed in his debut podcast earlier in the day that he played the end of the season on a torn groin which went undetected by the Spurs.

Danny Green, who was also sent to the Raptors with Leonard as part of the deal, believes fans in Texas should be grateful for what he did for the team and shouldn't hate him.

In reaction to these fairly recent rumors, ESPN's Michael C. Wright said on the latest episode of colleague Zach Lowe's podcast that Kawhi Leonard could have avoided his issues with the San Antonio Spurs by speaking up and telling the team that he also wanted to drive a luxury vehicle during the 2016 All-Star Weekend. "[It says] slight strain, take a couple weeks off".

That news is particularly noteworthy given that one of the big reasons for Leonard's ultimate departure was the year-long saga about his injured quad, suffered during the 2017 postseason. They've always been great to me. Despite his many accolades, which include two Defensive Player of the Year awards and the 2014 NBA Finals MVP award, Leonard carried himself in a similarly "stoic" manner as the Spurs' former franchise player, Tim Duncan, and mostly focused on his game, with little regard for his celebrity status. Green missed five games in December due to the injury.

Spurs doctors had cleared Leonard to return to play, but he sought second opinions and did not return, making his health a question mark following the trade.

The Spurs' medical team has received criticism for its loss of control in Kawhi Leonard's injury recovery.

Either Leonard, who normally is reserved and soft-spoken, didn't want to tell his teammates that he didn't want to go to war with them, or the rift between the star and the Spurs' brass was much worse than anyone initially knew.
