There hasn't been much details at what really happened between the San Antonio Spurs and Kawhi Leonard to cause him to be traded this offseason.

Reports have surfaced here and there on the deterioration of their relationship but according to Leonard's sister, there are some other behind the scenes issues the Spurs are ignoring.

A fan on Instagram posted a photo of Kawhi in Los Angeles recently which led to some to comment on how they feel he is a "coward" for how he handled his exit from the Spurs.

His sister (who goes by "mztwotwo" on Instagram) chimed in, engaging with fans who were disparaging her brother which led her to hint there are behind the scenes issues the Spurs are ignoring.

In addition, she also took aim at former Spur Tony Parker (who stated his injury was worse than Leonard's as well as saying he has no issues with his former teammate) asking why he was no longer a Spur during an exchange with a fan.

He quit or had no choice due to what was going on behind closed doors tht the SPURS IS not acknowledging??? U only know what is televised... Think about it. Its more thsn than U THINK U KNOW

Oh BTW he wasn't cleared!!! #FACTS! Oh and speaking of Parker why did he leave the Spurs? Ill wait. Lol

And during another exchange with a fan, she once again hints there's more to the fallout between the Spurs and Leonard.

Leonard was traded to Toronto along with Danny Green for a 2019 draft pick, DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl this offseason, ending a season-long saga that only saw him play nine games of the 2017-18 NBA season due to a reported right quadriceps injury.
