He was injured by the warriors and questioned by the spurs. He said where he wanted to go - they didn’t listen to him and sent him to Canada out of spite. He beat the warriors to win the championship and MVP in one. year.— Ariana Lenarsky (@aardvarsk) June 14, 2019
Spurs didn’t make it out of the 1st round.

As a huge Spurs fan, this is a bittersweet moment. I'm very happy for @kawhileonard, he deserves this so much. However, I wish he was still with us and we were the champs but it is what it is. This just hurts tho... #IStillMissKawhi #NBAFinals #Raptors pic.twitter.com/WH217bAbUz— Margarita Hernandez (@Mhernandez287) June 14, 2019
In his first season since demanding a trade from the #Spurs...Kawhi Leonard has won an #NBA championship and been named #NBAFinals MVP for the second time in his career. Can’t make this up. pic.twitter.com/vd66bhKIK0— RJ Marquez (@KSATRJ) June 14, 2019
Its bitter sweet to see Kawhi Leonard win a championship as a @spurs fan but I WILL TAKE IT. If GSW would have won i would have lost it. All year long every damn Sports Anchor and basketball analyst wouldn't shut up about the Warriors winning the championship. #NBAFinals— Mario Rocha (@NuxMario) June 14, 2019
The San Antonio Spurs Doctors Mis Diagnosed— Joseph Amar Neal (@neal_amar) June 8, 2019
He was rightfully upset angry and didn’t trust the Spurs ANYMORE
and wanted out
So the Spurs thought it was a PUNISHMENT to send Kawhi to the Toronto Raptors
It only ended up being GOD’S PLAN!

So as a die hard Spurs fan I would like to say, this is whack. The Raptors are whack. Kawhi Leonard is extra whack. I’m well aware the Warriors are whack, but not as whack as Kawhi. I’m a heartbroken man— Millenial Ric Flair 💎 (@NatureboyOdham) June 14, 2019
