The drama surrounding Kawhi Leonard and the Lakers is not expected to slow down any time soon. Rather, as the season inches closer, speculation and rumor might even increase.
Kawhi’s latest workout, in which he was spotted with Kobe, won’t exactly help put any of those rumors to bed, either.

Firstly, this picture is evidence of nothing, as it is common for players to work out with former stars in the offseason.
Secondly, there are a few Toronto staffers shown in the picture, meaning Kawhi isn’t afraid to rep his new team.
At the very least, though, it shows the level of admiration that Leonard has for the Mamba. They have a bond and think somewhat similarly. Maybe Kahwi would thrive in L.A. much in the same way Bryant did?
Whatever the case, it’s just exciting to see Kawhi at work once again, healthy and ready to go for yet another season of NBA basketball.
