Earlier this week it was revealed that Kawhi Leonard had bought a wonderful home in California for a lot of pennies. Of course, the news resumed the discussion about whether the 27-year-old will stay north of the border after this season.
Although we do not know and can not control what All Star plans to do after the 2018-19 campaign, the focus must really be on the present, as Raptors seems to have the best chance ever to compete for the title.
Leonard started against Houston Rockets on Friday, but former NBA MVP finals either did not dress or was inactive for the previous four matches in Toronto. His last time on hardwood, he took 33 points in the Raptors 117-108 loss of the Celtics. Since then, Toronto has been relegated to 3: 1 against weaker competition, with no star to contribute.
Leonard sitting games is nothing new. Prior to the fourth game he was already inactive or did not dress for ten races (usually for the second game on his back). However, he had not missed more than two games in a row and this caused a stir among the fans.
The recent conversation with Sportsnet's Micheal Grange helped clear the air around the extended absence.
Despite the fact that he was out of the squad and had a number of other injuries that tortured the team this season, the Raptors' record of 36-14 has them in the league's upper echelon. And it can not be denied that Leonard was a breaker of the game when he was preparing for the team.
He entered the game on Friday with an impressive 20 series of races with 20 or more points. He also has an average of over 31 points in a competition since the start of the new year. So whatever the medical staff of Leonard and Toronto do to make sure he can perform, it seems to work.
In addition, they seem to have a bigger picture at the top of their minds.
While he is healthy and capable of contributing after the playoffs are walking around, the conversation about his disconnection for a holiday during the regular season will quickly be forgotten.
