That wrap is not encouraging. I hope he doesn't try to play all 82 games to prove a point, he needs load management...
Then again, it's an issue for Clippers.
That to me is the only thing that really stood out.
Kawhi is the same dude that wouldn't stop driving an old ass Tahoe, so him wearing a pair of shorts from our team and the championship hat is not a huge surprise or story. He's not like a lot of players/celebs that has to rock the latest fashion, his style was pretty basic before New Balance signed him. If not from what I seen he kept it simple. Wearing this stuff is just him coming back into town n likely thinking it's showing some love to TO, to show he still cherishes a shared moment n it wasn't anything personal which by now our fanbase should relax n understand.
But really when you get past that it appears he had some form of surgery. I know it was apparent he was playing through it but some still didn't really let it sink in that Kawhi does have injury concerns and there's a reason for the load management because his body breaks down. Kawhi has struggled with various injuries his whole career and now PG is struggling with his shoulders...
It's funny because my first thought about the LA teams was wondering if Bron at his age and AD with his own track record (although usually minor injuries) could remain healthy but there could be just as much concern (if not more) with LAC's 2 best players.
I know it sucks we're not the same team but next year is gonna be hella interesting for the entire league!
