Kawhi Leonard-Gregg Popovich meeting not due to recent trade rumors

In an interesting shake of events, the meeting between San Antonio Spurs maligned star Kawhi Leonard and head coach Gregg Popovich was not a direct response to the recent rumors of him seeking a potential trade, but rather one that had been scheduled for weeks, according to Sam Amick of USA TODAY Sports.

Kawhi Leonard never meant to be anyone to us

Kawhi Leonard never meant to be anyone to us

The only version of the star forward we know is the one we created from our own projection. We don’t yet know the extent of the damage from last week’s Kawhi Leonard bombshell, but in surveying the reaction among fans and members of the media we have a good idea of the fallout. The emotional swoon that came with the reported trade request, yet to be formally addressed by player or team, has led to more pointed volleys of disillusionment and criticism towards both sides of the rift. For the Spurs, it’s a perceived mismanaging of Leonard’s injury, the eyebrow-raising comments from...

Kawhi Leonard’s trade request through the lens of Inglourious Basterds

The words of Aldo Raines, Quintin Tarantino’s creation, offer guidance in this troubled time for Spurs fans. Yesterday I was writing a draft for a scenario in which things went south in the summit between Leonard and the Spurs. After the news broke that Kawhi Leonard wants out of San Antonio, (and to preferably be sent to the Lakers) a ’what if things go south’ article isn’t needed. Things went sideways and south and apparently the relationship is beyond repair. At this point, if all the reports are true and Kawhi is allowing his group to force a trade, if Kawhi’s group is able...

Kawhi Leonard and the 5 stages of a Spurs fan’s grief

A year’s worth of processing the loss of San Antonio’s best player — condensed into a single article. So you’re likely familiar with the Kubler Ross five stages of grief model. For anyone who’s rusty on the concept, I’ll give you a quick breakdown. There are five common stages when dealing with any loss: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

What trading Kawhi Leonard does to the Spurs’ timeline

Assessing the stakes at risk while considering the seemingly inevitable Leonard trade. With reports of irreconcilable differences between player and team, the Kawhi Leonard Era appears to be nearing a now-inevitable, stultifying end in San Antonio. No one in the league will be the subject of more hypothetical trades than the Spurs forward, and with good reason — the two-time DPOY and 2017 MVP Finalist is a superstar when healthy, an elite talent who combines elite perimeter defense with ultra-efficient offense. His suitors, as various other reports already suggest, will be legion....
