SAN ANTONIO - Spurs fans went through a range of emotions Thursday night as Kawhi Leonard won the NBA championship with the Toronto Raptors.
It was Leonard's first season since he demanded a trade from San Antonio. Here's how some fans reacted on social media.
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.
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

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
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
