It’s an interesting read and he is growing into himself up north. Maybe it wasn’t possible for him here. Things are going good for the young man. I don’t hate him, nor am I mad about how things went down. Karma sorts it all out in the end, and right now the Spurs and we as Spurs fans can use all the good karma we can get.
I have predicted he will come down here with a better team and win that night. Not that I want him to. So what can we do upon the return of Kawhi to shape our universe of Silver and Black that is to our liking?
I truly hope that we as Spurs fans don’t get caught up with booing and yelling on January 3rd at the game, when they announce him as part of the Raptors starting squad.
You know what would make national news in the sports world? Is if everyone attending the game gave him a standing ovation upon his introduction. Stay with me here because right now some of you are thinking I am out of my mind. I assure you I am not!
Think about this. On January 3rd the entire sports nation and sports world will be watching and focused on San Antonio! They will be waiting to report the expected reaction of booing by pissed off San Antonio Spurs fans, over a situation no one except the Spurs organization and Kawhi Leonard’s camp have the details of. They will light San Antonio up for the world of sports news to witness because lets face it, the negative booing over all that drama is good for sports news and their ratings.
Like it or not he is gone, BUT San Antonio Spurs fans were not the cause of it. The fault lies at the feet of Kawhi and the Spurs. However, Spurs Nation can be the cause for something greater that speaks about our city, and who we are as true fans of all our Spurs past and present. Imagine the head lines world wide in sports the next day about the San Antonio Spurs FANS. Giving a shocking and unexpected reaction to the return of THE CLAW in San Antonio! A standing ovation?!!!!! Yeah that’s right! WHY? I’ll tell you and we can show the world together why. We will accomplish so much more for ourselves as fans, our team, and our bad ass city!
First. An obvious and important game time strategy. It’s the last thing Kawhi much less the rest of the world is going to expect. That should throw off any sense of conviction on his part to motivate beating the Spurs organization. (not that any pro player needs such motivation.) Lets face it though, he is human and any player who gets booed upon his introduction in any arena, is going to use that fire in the game. So right there we should as fans be smart, help our team, and not give Kawhi anymore motivation; but rather just the appreciation for his positive accomplishments while having the honor of wearing the Silver and Black. How crazy would it be if we threw him off his game for at least some of the first quarter? 🙂
Second. The news casters will report something positive about Spurs fans. We are different, smarter and dare I say better than the rest of the league’s fans. Most importantly, it says something to all other “professional sports owners/organizations”, looking for a new home in the future. Not only can we support pro sports, but we prove we are a top notch classy location to be in. It’s called selling San Antonio as a better market. Something the city cannot seem to accomplish regarding getting high profile sports organizations to move here. How many Cities have two teams? I can think of one right up 35N and another down 90E. I digress.
The point is K.L. is returning soon. All the world will be watching for the first time since that whole fiasco, which was weird for us all; and now we will get to have our say about it with everyone watching. We are better than all parties involved. We are The Spurs Nation! Bigger than the Spurs, not disgruntled the way Kawhi was perceived, and maybe just maybe that’s what he was. Regardless, we are a better and a different type of fan. A smarter one who can rise above all of it, including the media’s hunger for sensational negative news! We are Fans that can recognize a Toronto Raptor who was an unhappy player in San Antonio. A player, who prior to the moment that changed everything became an NBA champion with the SPURS in 2014, and was named the NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, and as a SPUR was a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year, having won in 2015 and 2016, and yes the SPURS former MVP and one hell of a Defensive player! We get a chance to represent ourselves! Tweet it dammit #DontBoo. #GSG
