    The thing about this pos is that there is no news to report. It’s all silence from his cancerous “group”.

    I counter your thread with this... By CouchMac87

    https://youtu.be/ViAb4vQzzZ8


    Cris “Connected” Carter says Kawhi wants to play with the King...

    Stephen Jackson believes Kawhi will be a Spur and wants to see them in SA

    Not in this video but Brian Windhorst says what happens to LeBron is connected to Kawhi...doesn’t mention SA but Philly, LA..

    Man this reminds me fishing for sharks in Panama- man miss living there at Quarry Heights. But so many trade rumors almost every team beside Golden Showers are talking about getting Kawhi (Blood is in the water and the sharks are hungry). Had my long time Flaker friends start calling me giving me shit they getting Kawhi I asked if they were cool loosin Ingram, Hart, and Kuzma.

    ps sharks were all catch and release

    This is great! Kawhi’s trade value just went up. Getting Kawhi means you could get LeBron this offseason.

    It's better to keep making new threads, and abandon them once duncan2k5 and YGWHI show up

    There is no overreaction on the autistic. He has tendinitis. Its just pain.

    We have a legit chance of winning a championship with him. We knock out this diet Warriors and its the easiest post season since 1999.

    He's picking money over us winning a ring. God knows when will another lucky injury situation like this be set in the table and we have another shot, it might be more than a decade.

    The damage Kawhi may cause the franchise from his decision is only comparable to the destruction Porker caused in the past 8 years.

    Found this post on Reddit:

    Just to follow up with this, in case you want more information:The injury Kawhi has is one of the trickiest injuries to treat in sports medicine. Kawhi has degenerative tendinopathy of the quadriceps tendon (also known as quadriceps tendinosis) - a chronic condition that leads to gradual weakening of the tendon.


    In this case, the tendon in question is the quadriceps tendon that connects the quadriceps muscle to the kneecap. Even if the pain from the tendinosis is being managed, the main problem associated with this tendinopathy is the tendon being compromised. Continued use of the tendon makes you highly susceptible to partial or complete tendon ruptures - injuries that can significantly shorten an NBA career.


    Degenerative tendinopathy can sometimes be initially misdiagnosed as reactive tendinopathy (also known as tendinitis), but misdiagnosis of this type of injury is relatively uncommon. The big problem is that the symptoms can vary day to day - one day you can feel good and have minimal pain during therapy while the next day everything is tight and there is an acute risk of tendon rupture.


    If you mismanage degenerative tendinopathy in an NBA athlete, especially quadriceps tendinosis, you can have very bad things happen. An example of this is Blake Griffin. The quad injury that kept Blake sidelined the majority of the 2015-2016 season and playoffs was degenerative tendinopathy of the quadriceps that was mismanaged and led to a partial rupture of the quadriceps tendon. Even with rehabbing this injury, Blake has lost some of his explosiveness and is still at very high risk to re-injure that tendon.


    In Kawhi's case, I assume (read: speculate) that two things are happening:
    1. He has more severe tendinosis than initially thought, making the rehab process less 3-6 months and more 9-12 months.
    2. The setbacks he have had are directly related to attempting to rush back too quickly with inappropriate rehab (even if he is feeling good), leading to further tendinosis and extending the timeline.

    I am assuming he is at the point where his personal doctors have told him to not risk the long-term effects associated with compromising the tendon. Progress is tough to measure in these cases so that may be why things are being kept under wraps and why doctors may disagree with his health (healthy to play versus fully healed). Furthermore, if he is undergoing specialty treatment and rehab for severe degenerative tendinopathy in NY, it is likely he will be recommended to continue that regimen without interruption. It may seem su ious that he is not on the bench while other injured players are, but I have to stress that this is not a normal injury. It requires constant attention - especially for a professional athlete.




    I know this is really long, but I hope this helps shed a little more light on his situation. I don't think you can fault Kawhi and his group for being cautious, nor can you fault the Spurs and Spurs fans from being upset at not having a clear indication of what is going on.

    Well the 8 games he played weren't mvp level, even on those short minutes. He obviously was not right. We assumed it was rust. They saying it was the injury.

    I'm starting to think the Spurs believe Kawhi has a chronic injury, and it's Leonard himself who thinks he's healthier than he is. That seems like bizarro-world shit, but think about it: The Spurs scout Kawhi and know he has a persistent quad issue, but they draft him anyway because they think they can manage it. It flares up a couple of times, but for the most part, it's fine for the first six years. Then this summer it comes back and doesn't go away. The team eventually (rather quickly) concludes that this is just Leonard's life now. He's going to have to deal with pain and may not have the same athletic ceiling. But with enough precautions, he can still have a career, maybe even a HoF-level career from here on out. So coming to the conclusion that he'll never be the same again, they "clear" him to come back as the player they feel he is just going to be from now on.

    Leonard, on the verge of a supermax, gets this prognosis and freaks out. He thinks he's just hurt, and if he can just get enough time to heal and rehab, he'll be fine. But time goes on, it doesn't get better. He tries to play through it but hates how he looks on the court. Facing real NBA mortality a decade too soon, he bolts town and tries to find someone who can get him back to who he used to be. Multiple specialists tell him that the Spurs weren't wrong, but eventually some or one of them comes up with a plan. So Leonard has been trying to do that, but as time goes on and nothing works (or as Danny put it, Kawhi has "setbacks"), his attitude becomes more and more toxic and withdrawn. It certainly doesn't he could feel/have been led to feel that this whole diagnosis is a ploy to get Kawhi on the cheap (since a permanently hobbled Leonard is not a supermax guy).

    So in this case, a lot of Pop's words feel different. A lot of the sickness and disgust he's shown comes from witnessing his star player spiral. The "player-only" meeting was so tense because Kawhi returning as is is pretty much admitting to himself that the team is right about his future, which he won't accept. Tony saying his injury was "100 times worse", is an attempt at consolation and hope, not a diss. The team wanting to move on with their season was an attempt to give Kawhi space and end would likely be grueling and ineffective rehab attempts. Danny's remarks are him truthfully reporting as much as he can without getting into the nature of Kawhi's injury (if he even knows). Even this makes a different level of sense in this scenario:

    Kawhi is not Tim Duncan. He’s the same Kawhi Leonard from Day 1. He’s not the #Spurs best friend. He comes to work, wants to be great, and goes home with his family and friends. That’s it. No beef, no matter what Spurs may think. Kawhi is the same Day 1 dude. End of story
