"Kawhi Leonard: "I'm a board man. Board man gets paid.""


  

          

The Athletic did a piece on Kawhi's college days, which included this A+ bit about Kawhi's trash talk:

"Tyrone Shelley, guard: Most people say it like, “Oh, I’m about to get buckets on you.” He was just like, “Buckets. Layup.” Just one word.

Shelton: He’d be like, “You’re not scoring. You’re not doing anything.” Or he’d be like, “No, no, no.” He’d just move his feet and say, “No.”

Gay: You couldn’t score on him, so that’s what he would say: “Nope, nope, nope.” And when he would score on you: “Bucket. Bucket.”

LaBradford Franklin, guard: If he was grabbing a rebound, he’d say, “Give me that” or “Board man” or “Board man gets paid.”

Coach Hutson: If I heard it once, I heard it 50 times. “Board man. I’m a board man.” That’s what he said. Absolutely. “I’m a board man. Yeah, I’m a board man. Board man gets paid.” He spoke in phrases like that."

I'M A BOARD MAN. YEAH, I'M A BOARD MAN.

LAYUP. NOPE. BOARD MAN GETS PAID.

Kawhi is the goddamn greatest.

Kawhi needs to come out of the floor as a robot and check in for the Monstars to guard LeBron.

In response to Reply # 22


  

          

People have a personal experience with something, see similar traits in someone else, and think they have enough information to leap to a diagnosis.

Parents, in particular, are prone to this.

I've seen people in various teaching and mental health professions make similar observations about others, but this a huge problem.

The devil's in the details, and often enough, there is information they do not, and cannot possibly, have to make that determination.

Sheesh is right..I never said it's a defect (nor do I consider it to be that). And it has nothing to do with how little he talks. Quest can talk anyone's ear off, and from reading his book it seems like he's somewhere on there too. I'm talking more about how he processes things. He's kind of a savant when it comes to his sport (just like Messi is with his, and he's widely rumored to be on the spectrum--again it's not a defect).

“While with the Spurs, Kawhi was known for his love of red apples. One time after practice everyone de ides to go out for a team dinner. When it was his turn to order, Kawhi waived off the waiter and instead pulled out a bag of 12 red apples. Coach Popovich asked what he was doing and Kawhi simply replied “Apple time, Apple time.” He then ate all 12 apples with a knife and fork.“

Wow. I get why he and Pop fell out now. Pop uses those dinners as his biggest team building thing, and you've got Kawhi sitting there with a damn cello bag of apples.

I am so thankful I got to watch him play at SDSU and am genuinely happy for him. It’s been great watching him grow and expand his game, especially offensively from SDSU to San Antonio to Toronto. This success is hard earned, couldn’t have happened to a better guy.
