Better late than never? Kawhi Leonard says 'THANK YOU' to the Spurs & fans weeks after forcing his way out of San Antonio

Leonard kept himself away from the Spurs for most of last season, rehabbing from a quad injury on the East Coast. He requested a trade from the Spurs, making it clear he wouldn’t sign an extension with the team that drafted him in 2011. His preference, according to reports, was to be traded to his hometown of L.A., whether to the Lakers or Clippers.
