I’d be skeptical of this news if it wasn’t for Leonard himself being so forthcoming about it all. A lot of time between now and then so the situation can change but it really does feel like he’ll play this season.

Most of us were guessing April (if at all) but the fact “sources” include March in there wasn’t something I was expecting.

Now that Kawhi is all-in, I don't remember ever seeing him so happy and relaxed.

I’m not surprised by the comments about his “coaching”. While the media was focused/crying over Leonard sitting in the suite during the playoffs Lue was talking about all this. He was sitting in meetings, offering adjustments during halftime. Players said the same thing.

I’m sure the media will be crying about how Leonard isn’t traveling with the team on the road but we’ll hear more of the same from players/coaches.

I still think it was Playoff P's and the team's excellent performance without him--and to a lesser degree the lack of interest in him this summer as a UFA--that got Kawhi all-in. That and the org bending over backwards to give him all the time and room he wants rehabbing his injury [which the Spurs did not, leading to a rather ugly divorce]. He was rather diffident his first year, better in the second after the Bubble embarrassment, but now is a full-fledged Clipper leader and teammate.

He’s traveled with the team and taking part in morning shoot around. Love to see it.

The Clipper fan understands the Book of Exodus better than anyone... what it's like to struggle 40 years in the wilderness... and Genesis.. why Cain went after Abel... So fLakers, look out... we're coming.

Trying to tamp my excitement down since I know he’s a good 2-3 months away. But it’s harder now that they’ve been featuring him a lot more than before.
