Most of San Antonio can admit that Kawhi Leonard did the Alamo City dirty when he continued to sit out despite being medically cleared. Or that he was a crybaby until he got traded out of San Antonio. While that might not make the superstar be on everyone's most-hated list, this might.

In a recent appearance on ESPN's "The Jump," legend David Robinson said he reached out to Kawhi Leonard during the year-long novela only to be ignored. While talking about the Leonard-Spurs drama, Robinson said the new Toronto Raptor is a hard guy to understand.
"It's one of the oddest situations I think I've seen since I've been in pro basketball," Robinson told host Rachel Nichols.

Nichols then asked Robinson whether he had spoken to Leonard about being unhappy with the Spurs.

"I've reached out to him several times and just never hear anything back from him," Robinson said.

But it seems that it wasn't just in the past year.

"I think the whole time he's been here I've talked to him maybe a handful of times," Robinson said.

We get it. Leonard is a man of few words and incredibly reserved (even by Spurs standards), but it says a lot that the two have spoken so few times since Leonard joined the team in 2011.

The news left fans shocked, and some angry that Leonard disregarded Robinson. Stay on top of San Antonio news and views. Sign up for our Weekly Headlines Newsletter.
