    Exclamation Leonard OUT for Clippers-Mavericks Game 1

    DAMN I could have sworn they were just resting him so he wouldnt get injured.


    Wtf.


    None the less, Clips with PG, Harden and Powell are dangerous.

    Yup, dude is done for the year it seems. Clippers always hide how serious his injuries are.

    It's actually amazing he managed to play the entire 2019 playoffs. To his credit, he did stay healthy enough to choke away a 3-1 lead in the bubble, but since then, he's managed to play one playoff series in it's entirety. Let's see how many games he manages to play this year.

    I mean he played more than half the games in 2017 (almost all), 2021, 2023, 2024 (almost all) and fell apart come post-season every time.

    This is Bernie Madoff or Jordan Belfort level fraud at this point. The SEC needs to investigate this nigg@.

    Uncle Dennis has repeatedly ruined any chance of Kawhi reaching his true “legacy ceiling”.

    I’m stealing this.

    It’s the GOLD STANDARD for Kawhi roasting.

    But what would he get out of playing 85% of the regular season only to miss the most anticipated part of the season? As AW pointed out, he plays the majority of the regular season, and balls out the brief instances he does play in the postseason.

    I would agree and call bullshit on him doing this during the season, but nobody wants to miss the playoffs, especially someone who just a few years ago was on a potential ATG trajectory.

    The 65-game ruling was literally a gawd damned public enemy logo aimed at Uncle Dennis & his autistic all-time-great-two-way nephew.

    A never injured, peak Kawhi > peak KD. That's how good he could've been and can still be in spurts.

    He knows he can't make it through a 4 series gauntlet anymore and mailed it in. Will give glimpses to entice investors and then they get robbed in the end. Classic fraud. Kawhi already won all that could be won. He's just stealing money now.

    Pretty much.

    Seems like he sacrificed his long term health during the Raptors run so that he could get a big contract.

    It's telling that no one still has any idea what is really up with his injuries. Wasn't it like a degenerative injury? Which means the more he plays, the more he gets worse, but if he doesn't play, it also seems like he gets more injury prone.

    Well he had both MCL & ACL tears in his right knee and he's about to turn 33. Looks like it's a D.Wade situation where it's just going to keep getting worse as he ages.
