Hug It Out
The real revelation in the Finals is that Kawhi Leonard is actually capable of showing emotions. His celebratory hug with Pops was heartfelt, moving, and filled with gratitude. It was a very special moment for the newly minted Finals MVP. Six years ago today—Father’s Day—his dad was shot to death outside of their carwash business in Compton, California (the case is still unsolved). That’s why the embrace was extremely touching for Kawhi and Pops, who has been nothing but a dear father figure to the entire Spurs.
For Game 5, we’re hoping for another blowout if only to see Michael Beasley suit up in garbage time. But with the way the basketball gods have been tripping, it won’t be shocking to see the Big 3–that’s LeBron, Wade, and Bosh in case you’ve forgotten–explode and steal one at the AT&T Center (we’re also still waiting for the Mario Chalmers Redemption Game or the Ray Allen 9 3s Game).
Kevin Love wants out? Multiple teams interested? This calls for the Trade Machine!*
