We know we aren’t the only ones that got that alert last night that Kawhi Leonard had agreed to sign with the Lakers, but as of this morning, he is still a free agent. A few people toyed with the idea that he was waiting to make his announcement until today, considering yesterday was Canada Day, and it would just be wrong to do Toronto like that. However, the folks at For The Win! Came up with five fantastic reasons for why he’s waiting to make any kind of announcement – sure, they aren’t all serious, but they are entertaining!
1. He’s waiting, to deliberately cripple the other teams
2. He’s using AOL to make the announcement
3. He’s taking his time to come up with the perfect tweet
4. He’s trolling all of us
5. He wanted to be nice to Canada on Canada Day
We think we can all agree here that no matter what the reason for waiting is, we need an answer ASAP. We’re sick of sitting on the edge of our seats! Thankfully, this won’t be a problem for FCFL fans in season one, as you will be the ones drafting players to your team. But for season two? This issue could present itself. And if it does, we expect to see you all demanding answers from your favorite players on Twitter too!
