Attention is the most unwanted thing of the car. But the Spurs are filming family photos. Everyone has to appear and smile. This seems to be evidence of a season. In the early morning of March 22nd, Leonard returned to Sanantonio and planned to stay for a few weeks. Some of the Spurs were seen to go to the gym for training, but it was the first time in two months to see him wearing the Spurs shirt for the first time in the whole family. At that time, he played ninth games this season and never played again after that. Ginobili later said, though it is very short, I am glad to see him. Leonards four leg injury to his right leg eventually made him reimburse for the season, but he puzzled the alliance around the mystery. He has had few public speeches this season, and what he said can not explain why he has missed so many games. In March 8th, he said his injury and pain were hard to explain, but obviously, I am a fighter. If I can beat, I will definitely fight. But he did not say his attitude towards the Spurs, nor did he say how the Spurs dealt with his injuries. A reporter asked him directly if he was willing to die at the Spurs. He said, well, of course. Leonard has never been talkative, which has become his signboard. He always speaks in a game. But this season, he didnt have much chance to play, and the influence of his voice exerted greater influence on him. Bo Shuai has always insisted that he has an impact on Leonard, but he has repeatedly expressed frustration about Leonards failure to recover from injury. You have to ask his team. Bo Shuai always said so, he also told reporters that the Spurs team doctor had announced in December that he could fight. In the Shuai Shuai mouth, the Spurs management is helpless. What they can do is wait for Leonard to decide to return. Leonards team is in the right direction. And they rarely talk about it openly. Leonards choice is to clarify or to make the situation more confusing. On March 22nd, after the Spurs beat the wizards, a reporter interviewed Leonard and asked him the reason why he was unable to fight now. Whether it was really bad, he nodded and said, what else can it be? Outsiders always want to hype the story. I havent been here for a long time. Six years ago, the Spurs have a long history. People will accept them first. Leonard said again. Finally, he exposed a little bit of heart, but before he started, the staff of the Spurs (not likely to hear what Leonard said, but only to see him take an interview) interrupted the visit. Leonard was no longer interviewed, and his agent did not respond. After that day, Leonard never showed up at the Spurs. In the past few months, the League news, the people around Leonard, the Spurs employees described it as a lonson, and both sides have made a mistake, and the big team and one of the leagues best players are likely to change the NBA layout. To understand how the Spurs and Leonard came to this point, we must first understand what his injuries are. The sources of Leonard and Spurs believe that there are essential differences between the two sides in judging the injury. Leonards team believed that his four - muscle injury was caused by a series of contusions, and was seriously injured in March 2016, causing him to suspend three games. In February 2017, the Spurs also indicated Leonards four - head muscle contusion in the pre - game injury report, but it was not until the end of last season that the problem became serious. Many sources say Leonards team believes that because of repeated injuries in the same area, ossification has become hard and atrophy, which directly affects the tendon of the four - head muscle that connects to the knee. The Spurs have always called Leonard a tendinitis of four muscles, which is caused by degeneration of muscle strain. The treatment of these two diagnostic results must be different. This is also the root cause of the contradiction between the two. At first Leonards treatment was held by the Spurs doctors and last years rest. Leonard basically listened to their advice, trained with the team in Sanantonio, and was the same when Santiago was with a private trainer. But by August, things had changed, and Leonard had been feeling uncomfortable. His agent Mitch Fraenkel and uncle Denis Robertson began pressing the Spurs and they were looking for third party opinions. By autumn, they have found the chief partner of the New York sports laboratory, Keith - En Lai, who diagnoses Leonard. From mid 12 to mid 1, Leonard briefly returned to play and played 9 games. The Spurs had been very conservative in his use and had him take a break. But after 28 minutes of nuggets in January 14th and 19 points, Leonard said he felt pain. He traveled with the team to Atlanta and Broolyn, and did not play again. Bo Shuai also said before the nets that Leonard had ceased for an indefinite period. He didnt get hurt again, but he felt pain. Its not that after the game its very painful, but on the second day, its not quite right. Bo said. But at the time he did not say, Leonard went to see a doctor in New York, this time, the surgeon in Mount Sinai medical center and the joint team leader of sports medicine, Jonathan - gray, who worked with the New Jersey devil team and the Philadelphia 76 team. Fraenkel and Robertson arranged the consultation, they only informed the Spurs, and told the doctors advice to them. Since then, the team of Leonard has been responsible for the rehabilitation of New York, and the Spurs have also helped Leonard train at the headquarters of the players Union. Another alliance source claimed: Cavai or Cavai, the only one who has changed is who is speaking on behalf of him. Leonards dissatisfaction came from the opposition of the Spurs to the outside opinions, and Popovichs anger on the various media statements. One of Leonards friends said, the Spurs think their team is the best, they are really proud of their capital, but they are really not open enough, and they dont allow outsiders to touch their players. Another Leonard said: (spurs) makes Leonards image very ugly, and when Duncan retired, they got a seamless heir. Why do they have to alienate him? The two sides also deepened their dissatisfaction with the difference in the diagnosis of Leonards injuries. Toni Parke also mixed in. He said he had the same injury as Leonard, and 100 times worse. Warren also reported that Parke and Ginobili questioned Leonard about this question at the March 18th team meeting. The Spurs players said the meeting was not a quarrel, but a discussion. But Parke and Ginobili never clarified, and Parke only said, this is the internal affairs of the family. In the playoffs last year, Parkes left leg leg was torn by four tendons. After the season was reimbursed, he was operated by the spur surgeons main knife and returned at the end of November. But Fraenkel said, I dont think the injuries of Toni and Parke are the same. Its more obvious. Whether spurs or Cavai or Cavais doctors, everyone wants him to recover. Its not as simple as the media reports. He just wants to recover as soon as possible. Buford, general manager of the Spurs, agreed: what we are concerned about is how to provide the best health protection measures for the players in their career. RC- Our goal is also for the process of the Kai wayI rehabilitation, no matter where it comes from. In 2014, Leonards wrist injury recovered less than expected. His agent Fraenkel and Blaine El El asked for the third partys opinion. After mild opposition, the Spurs agreed to let Leonards team find the doctor himself. Leonard returned to the final 15 games in a truce without any subsequent problems. The Spurs side believes that the end of Els cooperation with Leonard in 2016 is a change in bilateral relations. He has always been closely related to the Spurs management and coaching staff, and is able to do well in bilateral relations. Fraenkel and Robertson also participated in the negotiations, and in 2015, when Leonard negotiated the contract, they had very heavy words. A source familiar with Buford said Buford once admitted to him that he often suffered from insomnia due to bad relations with Leonard. For years, the Spurs saw him as a successor to Duncan, whether he was a court player or a low-key personality outside the court. When Leonard got FMVP in 2014, his mother, Kim Robertson, said, he just wants to be stronger. He doesnt do a superstar, he doesnt want to pay so much attention. He just wants to do better on what he likes. People who have steady contacts with Leonard still think so. Popovich is one of them. He and Leonard will exchange short messages this season. But what the Spurs want to know is what is the purpose of the people around him. So who is uncle Denis of this Sanantonio population? What was his intention for Leonard? Many people are willing to explode Robertson and Fraenkel, but not many of them are willing to sign. Many of Robertsons former colleagues and former colleagues described him as hard to get along with and ambitious to credit Leonards success to his marketing company. Many brokers say that Robertson is eager to emulate Lebrons marketing company, LRMR, though he is not a listed broker, but he wants to subcontract services. But many industry brokers are not interested in him. But even the critics must admit that when Leonards father was shot, Robertson was devoted to bringing up Leonard, so Leonard was dead to him. An insider said, he has a lot of trust in him. Robertson does not think he is not qualified. According to the British data, he has been a vice president of the retail bank of the chase bank for 22 years, and has also worked in the carver Federal Savings Bank for 5 years, and his wifes business has the title of the elite athlete department manager. Obviously, their advertising words did not show in Leonards incident. This season, Leonards personal brand suffered a great blow. Leonards sister, Micha - Layton, often hit back on his social official fan page. During the playoffs, fans criticized him for not playing with the team. He was in New York. She wrote, what makes you think hes not trying to return? Please look at the facts. He is still a Spurs player. In April 22nd, she sent the message again: your negative comments will be blocked. This place belongs to the real fans of the car. In recent weeks, Michel Roberts, the president of the players Union, has also made some suggestions to Robertson, hoping that he can ease the deadlock, but Robertson has not formally asked the union to ask for help. * * * * * * * * * Fraenkel also has his own company. He started as a rugby broker, but in the past ten years, he has been involved in basketball, and Leonard is his core customer. But his business expansion is not smooth. Since 2011, there have been 6 accusations against him in breach of the uniform commercial code. His former employees also revealed that the sources of these debts were due to the fact that they were unable to make ends meet in basketball. Debt records also show that Fraenkel has been looking for a lot of capital companies to borrow money. Former NFL defender Ande - Davies, who has been working with Fraenkel for ten years in his career, said Fraenkel had asked him if he wanted to invest in basketball, but he chose a loan rather than a form of investment because it was safer. But after Els departure, many Rugby brokers also left. Now the official website of Fraenkel company does not exist, and the display is under construction. One of his investors seems to be holding the rest of the property. In February 2017, an article by Forbes said Joseph Sutton was their senior collaborator, and he invested $10 million with his father Geoff. In an interview, Joseph said their company was repositioning the brand, and the goal of promoting the development of their real estate business through brokers did not change. This is a very unique advantage, Sutton said. These customer relationships can bring capital, and we can help customers to increase their value and gain a passive income. They have been successful in Leonard, and Sutton claims that he and Robertson earn millions of real estate profits every year in Harlem, New York. The data also showed that Robertson had seven apartments with others in an apartment building on Madison Avenue, Harlem area. In recent years, brokers did not do well, commissions continued to depreciate, many gold medals were left behind, and others were caught up in the investigation by the judiciary. Robertsons strategy for making money has to be very interesting. But his company did not have a broker to do daily business, no NBA customers, but Leonard, Leonard Prince went to CAA, and wale Barton went to Goodwin sports brokerage. Fraenkel admitted that he had left the company. He was still a broker on Leonards registration data. Before he left, Robertson had been the companys controller, and according to Robertson, he had a direct agreement with Fraenkel to pay the latter as a consultants role. So it is difficult for outsiders to figure out who is speaking for Leonard. Each of them has different purposes and makes things more complicated. To what extent does this situation affect the relationship between San Antonio and Leon? Only when you come to Sanantonio can you feel the deep-rooted spurs culture here. The streets of Houston are hung with spears and stickers all the year round, as lively as Christmas. At the junction of St. Mary street and Parreira street, there are murals of the three giants of Duncan, Parke and Ginobili, which are written by Albert Gonzales. Duncan in the painting is wearing No. 21 Jersey, Ginobili has hair and Parke is dribbling, which represents the glory of the Spurs championship. Now Duncan wont wear No. 21 again. He often wears a simple visit to the Spurs hall, and Parke has become a substitute, and Ginobili likes to do yoga in the dressing room before the match, and hes already 40 years old. Leonard should have been the successor of the three giants after the end of the era. Last year, the Spurs did not rebuild their lineup, but wanted to maximize the use of his peak, so Aldridge, Gasol, Mills and Ginobili had been renewed for his core lineup. Popovich, 69, has considered retirement in the past few years. But he did not do it because Leonard and A De still had hope. He stayed at the Spurs and promised to coach the US mens basketball team in the 2020 Olympic Games. Before the season, there was no suspense in the San Antonio Spurs, and everyone thought he would sign a 219 million super pay team. The Spurs are small city. In February of this year, the chairman and boss Julian Holt had already applied for divorce from the former boss Peter Holt. For Bo Shuai and Buford, if anyone can let them consider selling spurs shares and trust the Spurs will not depreciate, that is Leonard. But after this season, they will be uncertain about what they will do in the future. Inside the Spurs, people are still optimistic that Bo Shuai can repair the relationship with Leonard, just like he last years off-season representative of the Spurs and A De reconciliation. But the question is whether management will agree to Leonard 219 million. They have reason to suspect that if such a farce is to be re staged one day, what should we do? And even if the Spurs offer, is Leonard willing to accept it? According to sources, they are also discussing these issues, and there is no definite result. In early April, a reporter in Losangeles asked Bo Shuai what management he most admired when he first started teaching. He said, sir. Theyre all very gracious from top to bottom. You never heard of their scandals. They all shut up the door to do hard work, never show off, and go home by doing things. Bo Shuai of course is also such a person, and this seasons farce is bound to make him very uncomfortable. In answering questions about Leonard, he always used sarcasm. Before the Spurs lost to the warriors a few weeks ago, Bo Shuai also seemed to express his memory of Duncan. He is as solid as a rock. He is quietly a leader. Everyone is infected by his own example. I think this is the foundation for our team to achieve long-term success. He said. Bo Shuai always said he would retire with Duncan. But he didnt do that in the end. The biggest challenge in the final chapter of his coaching career was to adapt to the Spurs without Duncan. Leonard, like Duncan, doesnt seem to care about marketing and image. Of course, he still has a shoe advertising, but its just a job on the endorsement contract for him. Over the years, he really cares about business cooperation, as if he were the only restaurant he used to go to. Like Duncan, he gave the business problems to the team. In March, the media reported that his team rejected the 4 - year renewal price of 4 - year - 22 million for the shoe brand. The reason for the breakdown was that Robertson thought Leonard should not be so low. The Spurs, of course, do not care what kind of sponsorship or real estate investment he has. They only want him to play. And did Leonard think so? When he makes a decision, who will speak for him? In April 19th, when Pos wife died, all the farce was no longer important. The whole league is mourning for Bo, who is in charge of the starting center? How many minutes does Whiteside play? Who cares whether Leonard watches the game in Sanantonio or trains in New York? Aileen Popovich has been ill for a long time. Respiratory disease has made her travel very little, and she has been recuperating at home in Maine. Bo Shuai rarely talked about her situation openly, but everyone around him knew how much it had caused him. He always said he wanted a balanced life and wanted to build a family atmosphere in the team. Part of his values come from the military background, but a great part comes from his love for Aileen and his family. In the last three games of the playoffs, he did not teach. He said he was still in grief. Others revealed that Leonard wanted to leave New York to return to support Bo Shuai in person. But when Bo Shuai did not teach again, Leonard did not start. Leonards question is nothing to Bos grief, but Bo Shuai still has to face and solve it sooner or later. Does he want to continue working with Leonard and bring Ginobili and Parke together? At the end of G5, Parke left the Oracle arena with his head down. He will be a free agent, but as long as the Spurs need it, he will be willing to return to play for a few more years. I can only say that this is definitely the most unusual and difficult season I have ever experienced in Spurs, he said. Ginobili was in a better mood, and for the whole season he had been supported by many miles from Argentina fans, which even promoted the development of tourism in Sanantonio and other cities. For him, the decision to leave is simple, it depends on whether I can fight it. Throughout the year, he was trying to maintain his little magic, because he still loved and loved all the Spurs. But Leonard doesnt love it, not necessarily. Source: NetEase sports writer: Kewell editor: Huang Yu _NS1604 At the end of G5, Parke left the Oracle arena with his head down.
