Kawhi's sister Leonard has turned to the viral video that unleashed the rumors of the post-Toronto Raptors & # 39; s game season and the Eastern Conference Finals & # 39; winning the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
The sister of the Raptors star was recording a video on Instagram when a voice was heard in the background saying:
"They know very well that they will not be there next year."
Of course, with Leonard ready to get to free agency, and places like New York and Los Angeles that are mentioned as options, that comment provoked speculation.

Leonard's sister has removed the video and addressed speculation on Instagram. She says that the comment was made by a random person who hates in the background. It was not anyone who was near Kawhi.
Of course, this is not going to stop any offseason speculation, and the Clippers / Lakers / Knicks / others will continue to be mentioned as possible destinations.
However, Leonard has more important things to worry about, such as the NBA Finals.
Game 1 starts on Thursday at 9 p.m. E.T. in abc.
