Kawhi Leonard is fed the fuck up. On Thursday night, the Toronto Raptors lost Game 3 of the Eastern Conference 116-95 to the Philadelphia 76ers to go down 1-2 in the series.
Kawhi is coming from an organization whose sole purpose is winning championships and was traded to an organization that is dedicated to getting embarrassed in the playoffs annually.
All Kawhi wanted to do was work for a franchise that would appropriately diagnose his injuries. When he says his quad hurts and he can’t play, he wants his boss to say ‘okay, we believe you. Let’s run more tests instead of what everyone in San Antonio said which was ‘stop being a pussy’.
Then he was mailed to Canada to play with a bunch of bench players. Every day in practice, Jodie Meeks slaps the floor ready to D up Kawhi and he probably rolls his head and counts the days to free agency.
But Kawhi balled out this season even though he was playing with bums in a city where The Night King would be comfy. He averaged a career-high with 26.6 points on 49.6% shooting.
He’s played 8 games this postseason. He’s averaging 31.5 points with 6.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists. He’s above and beyond the best player on the court regardless of who he’s playing against.
And then looks over at Kyle Lowry, the supposed ‘all-star’ point guard who put up 7 points on 2-for-10 shooting in Game 3. As much as Tony Parker will get wine drunk and DM your wife, at least when the playoffs begin, he’s a beast.
Steve Balmer has his car parked outside of whatever arena Toronto plays in with a contract for Kawhi to sign the second Philadelphia beats them after Kyle Lowry scores 4 points on 0-for-11 3-point shooting in an elimination game.
Do you think Kawhi Leonard even learned his teammates names?
Nah. Something tells me he has one number in his phone contacts and it’s like, his local pastor. Once the season is over, he won’t be chillin with Paskal Siakam.
