The Kawhi saga continues

Kawhi-Leonard-(Jose-Garcia)

Only one thing about this whole Kawhi drama is certain. There is something big that we don’t know. There has to be. As a fan I would lose my mind to find out it was truly just a difference of medical opinions.

The latest information is that communication between the Spurs and Kawhi has deteriorated to the point Kawhi doesn’t respond to texts and calls for weeks at the time, as reported by Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee.

There has to be something!! Call me old-fashioned but when you have a job with a salary in the millions, $18,868,625 for this season to be exact, one might say you have a duty to pick up the phone when your employer calls to see when will you return from sick leave. It’s true that being an NBA player is not your regular 9-17 job, but still. I can’t believe that things would get this weird without something extraordinary happening.

The future of this relationship is revolving around this summer when the Spurs can give Kawhi the supermax, a contract above $200 million. It is still not out of the question, as we saw how Pop mended fences with LaMarcus Aldridge this past summer. I personally hope it works out as I have enjoyed watching the Spurs with Pop and Kawhi these past few years. But knowing how Pop works and how much culture has been the operating word in the Spurs dynasty for the past two decades, every report that comes out makes me more sceptical that will happen.

On top of that, here's Brian Windhorst on the entire league prepping their trade offers for Kawhi:
