One NBA fan went with everything against Kawhi Leonard, making fun of him for all the moves and requests he’s made in the past couple of seasons trying to land in the Lakers, to land in the Clippers and get the player he wants to team up with at Los Angeles. Kawhi is a quiet but very influential player in the league so it’s not a surprise seeing them making these moves to join forces with the players he wants to.
However, those moves have been criticized by people when LeBron James does them, but Kawhi hasn’t had the same treatment as the Los Angeles Lakers superstar. Well, one NBA fan took to Twitter to make the comparison between LeBron and Kawhi, reminding all the things the Klaw did to land in the Clippers and what he can do next trying to move the pieces around him.
“Kawhi asked the Lakers for a private jet to sign, went to the Clippers after being denied, demanded them to trade for Paul George before he agreed to go, then “okays” a trade to send George to Houston after just one season for Westbrook. Thought Bron was the GM?” Gary Sheffield wrote.
This tweet speaks, “ I think I know it all, even though Kawhi himself has never said a word”

Of course, some fans weren’t having any of that while others agreed with Sheffield. This tweet drew mixed reactions and the NBA community showed their passion to discuss these topics.
He learned from Lebron. Lebron been trading teammates and firing coaches for 15yrs.

Bron is a GM lol went to cleveland and told management to trade wiggins for love. Resign Thompson and JR Smith to ridiculous contracts. Then go to LA and trade all their young players for Davis. Other than the JR and Tristan signings not bad. But kawhi did want butler not george

The difference is Bron is one of the greatest players to ever play so that’s what gives him that little bit of GM decisions on every team he plays for and Kawhi is just of the best players the Clippers have had so of course they gone do what he says to make him happy

To be clear, Lakers HAD to say no to private jet.
All those crazy perks are SUPER against the rules, otherwise teams would offer them to get around the salary cap.
Your point otherwise remains and is hilarious. 🤣🤣🤣

Bron has been the best GM in the league since the Wiggins for Love swap. He has been masterful adding the right vets.

The difference between leGM and Kawhi GM is that bron gets the players and makes it work on the court others get it and they expect it to work just on name or talent

I’m struggling to believe Kawhi ever said any of that

It’s not clear that Leonard actually asked for all this stuff and not his uncle Dennis, but rumors don’t come from nowhere. Kawhi can still ship George this season after a disappointing season in Los Angeles. Only time will tell what’s going to happen with the Clips, who are ready to enter an entertaining offseason.
