Kawhi thanks Pop, Spurs fans in farewell letter

Kawhi thanks Pop, Spurs fans in farewell letter

Just because Kawhi Leonard wanted out of San Antonio doesn't mean he isn't grateful for his time as a Spur.

There have been multiple reports as to how Leonard received the trade to the Raptors, ranging from having no desire to play in Toronto to being excited about the move and potentially being open to to sticking around long-term.

New Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard broke down his farewell to San Antonio and the Spurs into two words: "Thank you".

Kawhi Leonard disintegrating his relationship with the San Antonio Spurs is one of the worst break-ups the NBA's seen in years. He then thanked Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and the fans.

San Antonio received All-Star forward DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltel and a 2019 protected first-round pick for Leonard and Danny Green. With LeBron James having moved West and the Raptors arguably trading up after being the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference past year, they think they have a real shot to win the East. Leonard will have to return to his 2015 and 2016 form for them to compete, of course.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Sullivan's order meant the taxpayer wound up paying for a needless round-trip flight. Two of the children and their mothers were deported before the suit was filed; the rest were being detained in Texas and NY .

He also thanked the city of San Antonio, his former teammates and the fans.

The 2018-2019 regular season for the National Basketball Association will tip off October 16, with the Spurs regular season schedule due out this Friday.

"Through all the ups and downs - I'm glad there were many more ups!" Every "THANK YOU" should be replaced with "I'M SORRY".

The 2014 Finals MVP played only nine games last season, after being sidelined with a nagging right quad injury. "I'll never forget I'll never forget what we have shared and accomplished together", he wrote.
