How exactly do you ignore David Robinson?

New, comments

Even though his time in San Antonio is over, the tale of Kawhi Leonard and the Spurs continues to unfold.

David Robinson is a legend in San Antonio. And due to his work ethic, duty to his country, and his basketball acumen, he is one of the most highly regarded figures in sports. It goes beyond that in San Antonio, where he is revered. This morning on The Jump, The Admiral told Rachel Nichols how he had reached out to Kawhi Leonard multiple times before the trade only to be left with nothing but Leonard’s trademark silence.

In the minute-and-a-half clip above, Robinson referred to the Kawhi situation as “one of the oddest” in basketball. I am not sure how one goes about leaving calls from the Spurs greatest center unanswered, but I’m sure he had his reasons.
