  1. Kawhi ain’t playing another minute until he puts pen to max contract .
    His camp are shit scared he gets injured, and then taken out like the trash. Look at Stuart little and the Celtics ! They burnt his ass. Now he ain’t worth shit

  2. This to me is no different than the Derrick Rose situation. Quite, soft spoken athlete that only trust his family. The Derrick Rose situation didn't end well niether will this. I hope I'm wrong.

  3. Kawhi doesn't want to be there – his story reminds me of Ali when he was being managed by friends and family. Yes, he wants to be completely healthy; he wants to leverage and earn from his brand (in his quiet way), and yes, he respects yet does not revere Pop the way Parker, Ginobili, and others do. Pop doesn't forgive easily (or at all) and Leonard is going to leave.

  4. Popovich is getting on my nerves. The fact that he promotes Kyle Slow Mo Anderson who is a 3rd tier as best. Aldridge had problems with Popovich and he had to apologize for his crap. Popovich is mad that he can't run like a mad man and everyone bow down to his crap. Popovich is turning into Phil Jackson. This is a bilateral contract, not a unilateral contract. You must understand that after Isaiah Thomas got misdiagnosed and also what happened to DeMarcus Cousins. People must protect their assets and let the Team understand that this is a bilateral contract.

  5. I don't care what the problem is. Kawhi is quiting on team. And this "mysterious" quad injury that modern science can't decipher is bogus….he's the Spurs best player….you honestly think they gonna have team Dr's lying to the Spurs that he's ready. Unprofessional and to be honest…Kahwi is boring. He could live in NYC and he would still be boring. Nobody wanna market their product with a guy who has no personality.
