« If I’m Kawhi, I’ll sit down because when I come back, I won’t be at full power anyway »
At the microphone of The Jump, in comments relayed by Let’s talk basketball, Kendrick perkins asserted that Kawhi leonard would do much better to end his season instead of risking a much more serious injury: » I don’t think he’s coming back. I mean, everything about the knee and the anterior cruciate ligament sprain, everything around that … It’s just something that you can’t play with. If I’m Kawhi, I’ll sit down because when I come back, I won’t be at full power anyway. You have a chance of injuring yourself even more, when you could just stay on the bench. «
