Seriously, what the heck is going on in San Antonio?

Since news broke last seaosn of his unhappines,s thing shave only grown more complicated as new details continue to emerge.

We know that sometime later in the season, Kahwi Leonard broke off from the Spurs organization to seek his own form of rehab with his club in New York. During this time, and likely after that point, the team and the star shared very little communication.

Though nobody realized just how bad things got. In a story recently shared by Michael C. Wright, Kawhi's camp went through drastic measures to avoid Spurs medical staffers.

"There was a point during [Kawhi's] rehab process in New York that some of the Spurs brass went out to see him in New York," Wright said. "As soon as those guys arrived to the building, Kawhi's people grabbed him and sequestered him to another part of the building. And so the Spurs' people couldn't even see him.

" ... These are the types of things that are going on that people don't necessarily know about."

Obviously, we all had a sense that things were nearing unfixable regarding the relationship between Kawhi and the Spurs organization. But to play a game of hide-and-seek in an effort to avoid the team altogether? That's just unprecedented.

The team, while listening to calls, have not been really getting serious about dealing Leonard. They continue to play hard-ball, and some even say that they'll wait out the summer in an attempt to improve the situation.

But as details continue to emerge, it's becoming painfully clear that there is no going back on what has emerged as a broken relationship.
