For the first time since being traded to the Toronto Raptors, Kawhi Leonard has something to say. Leonard wrote a letter to San Antonio, thanking the team and fans.
I have been going back and forth the last few weeks trying to figure out the right things to say, and it comes down to two simple words: THANK YOU!
My family and I want to say THANK YOU to the entire Spurs organization and the people and fans of San Antonio.
THANK YOU to every one of my teammates I've played with over my seven years in the NBA.
THANK YOU Pop I'll always be grateful for my growth under your guidance.
THANK YOU to the fans! There is not a more passionate or dedicated fan base than what I've witnessed in San Antonio.
Through all the ups and downs - I'm glad there were many more ups! - I'll never forget what we have shared and accomplished together.
While I'm looking forward to the next chapter in my career , I'll always remember the city and the people of San Antonio!
- Kawhi Leonard
