Kawhi Leonard is making his return to San Antonio tonight as the Spurs host the Raptors in a Thursday night matchup at AT&T Center. This will mark the first time Leonard is back in San Antonio since his departure from the organization this offseason.
Leonard left the Spurs on bad terms after appearing in just nine games in the 2017-18 season, and he's not expected to be received warmly by the fans in San Antonio. One fan has a custom jersey that he's bringing to the game, and while petty, it's pretty funny.
The custom jersey reads "Kawitter" on the back, a sentiment to the consensus opinion of Spurs fans that Kawhi Leonard gave up on the team after sitting out most of last season with a highly questionable injury to his quad.
Not a lot of information regarding the injury was made available as Leonard and his camp sought different opinions from doctors outside of the Spurs organization.
This is a highly anticipated return as Leonard rose to prominence under Gregg Popovich and the Spurs. Leonard was traded this offseason alongside Danny Green in a deal for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first round pick.
