    Its absurd and disgusting.

    They ganged up on the spurs calling it a misdiagnosis, not making kawhi happy etc.

    Fast forward two years and the Medical themselves confirm the spurs diagnosis..

    For those who cant recall the spurs diagnosis..

    Chronic quad issue. Kawhi can still play the same minutes and frequency (even back to back i assume) just need to manage after the game and learn how to play with Pain...

    NYC doctor really ed up mentally.

    timvp pointed this out two years ago. that it looks like he just needs to learn how to play with minor pain.


    But this still thinking he can be cured.


    So Why after all the disrespect is the media not reporting the spurs original diagnosis?

    I think a lot of people don't remember that the Spurs diagnosed Kawhi with anything. I think a lot of people believe the Spurs told Kawhi he was fine. So for them, the knee condition is proof of the Spurs' incompetence, not of their correctness. A lot of it is willful ignorance too though. People like D2K5 will still get up and lie about the injury even though they know damned well the Spurs' staff correctly identified the problem.

    Cris “insider information” Carter got fired and had to clean out his desk with security watching him. Jabari Young is no longer reporting on the Spurs. Things are looking up if you over look the actually team.

    Kawhi is starting a new trend. Who knows if it works.

    Kawhi winning the Chip really allowed him to strong muscle the clippers and the fact that he was a free agent allowed him to muscle the Raptors. Nick Nurse was saying he was expecting Leonard to play back to back december, and then feb and the march but he never did.

    It's a strong indication that even the raptors, clippers medical staff dont see an injury that should keep him out of back to backs...But his NYC doctor believes it can go away, but that was two years ago and its clear now that doctor was wrong

    Go to the 4:35 mark and listen to this nonsense. This is what the media thinks of the Spurs.

    A night when the Spurs play well, get a good win, and LMA has a great game, and what does apa do? He starts another Kawhi Leonard thread.

    It's time for apa to go. Past time, really. Ban him. Get him out of here.

    In fact, he should be banned. Ban his account permanently, and erase everything he has ever posted to the board. Do it.

    Not to mention... we even wanted to rule him out for the entire season. Not sure... how we're in the wrong.

    I will say however... that the criticism to Kawhi was unfair. Why would we just start assuming the one of the most hardest workers, if not the most hard working guy, would just mail it in? He's obviously hurt.

    I don't think most of you understand what really happened here.

    Doc Rivers held Kawhi out of a game against the reigning league MVP.
    Then he said that Kawhi "feels fine".

    Silver was pissed. That game was a big ticket draw, and the league doesn't like it when superstars get held out of those kinds of games.

    Then the Clippers went into damage control mode. They said that Rivers mis-spoke, and that Kawhi was really held out due to a chronic injury.
    That gave Silver a cover story. He can say that the fans didn't get screwed - Kawhi really missed the game due to health issues.

    Bottom line, it's all about the money and appearances, and giving Silver a way to save face with fans who were pissed. Now Doc has his permanent story, and he won't make the mistake of saying Kawhi feels fine ever again. When he holds Kawhi out, it will be to rest his chronic injury.

    Don't forget Skip Bayless is a Kawhi fan again, turning in his Spurs card. That's good for us too, tbh.

    Skip has always been a fraud and used the Spurs to do his schtick. Never actually thought he was a real fan like Beadle.

    Just flipped the channel in time to hear Doris Burke questioning the whole load management routine in a taped interview.
