The Real Reason

Over the last 2 days, give or take, PtR was in chaos. PATFO suprised us all with swapping RJ and a 1st rounder for a chance to put Captain Jack in the sliver and black yet again.

We all started to ponder and wonder why PATFO made it and whether the locker-room can withstand the headcase that it is Steven Jackson. Well, If I wasn't completely sure before last night, now I am: The Real reason is Kawhi Leonard.

You may be wondering, Why didn't pop just benched RJ? Well, this is another greatness of our front office! In order to prevent the humiliation that comes from a vet being benched for a rookie, RC found a way to let RJ play, probably in a place more fit for his abilities. [In my eyes they even sacrificed the 1st rounder for him.]

From what I understand, Pop and TD talked to Jackson before the trade happened. They probably told him that status where he is a sub for Leonard. He had to agree, the fact that he did tells me that it could work.
