Kawhi Leonard Trade Latest Bungle for Toronto

Color me floored on an otherwise beautiful Wednesday morning. Everyone and their mamas knew that not only Kawhi Leonard wanted out of San Antonio, he wanted to be in Los Angeles – preferably a Laker.

WTF Is Up with Kawhi???

This Kawhi Leonard vs. San Antonio Spurs saga is getting weirder by the day.
