Kawhi Leonard jerseys removed entirely from Spurs team shop

Kawhi Leonard

The San Antonio Spurs have moved on completely from Kawhi Leonard following the blockbuster trade that sent the former Finals MVP to the Toronto Raptors.

The Spurs weren’t playing around. Not only did they ship Leonard off to a different country, they’ve taken all of his merchandise out of the San Antonio team shop.

They even have the “legendary” San Antonio Spur David Lee’s jersey in stock. Lee retired following the 2016-17 season after only playing one season in San Antonio. The Spurs team shop is throwing all the shade at Kawhi.

This is akin to a bad breakup where a scorned lover removes all traces of his ex on social media. Lee gets to stick around because he was just a one time fling. That breakup didn’t hurt so bad. But Leonard was supposed to be the one. The pain in that breakup is enough to warrant a full social media cleansing.

While a sports organization isn’t petty enough to remove all traces of a former player on social media, taking that player’s gear out of the team shop is the next best thing. They don’t want to see a silver and black Leonard jersey ever again. The last thing they want to do is sell more of them.

It’s hard to believe that a team would turn down money, but maybe San Antonio is willing to sacrifice some extra jersey sales to prove a point. This is on another level of petty and it’s impossible to hate it. Go Spurs go.
