All year long we’ve heard that Kawhi Leonard is not interested in joining LeBron James in Los Angeles.

Just a few days ago ESPN’s Michael C. Wright told Brian Windhorst that he believed that Kawhi wasn’t really into the idea of playing with LeBron next season.

If the Los Angeles Lakers pair a second superstar with LeBron James this summer, it likely won’t be Kawhi Leonard.

Appearing on Brian Windhorst’s podcast, ESPN’s Michael C. Wright said he doesn’t believe Leonard is interested in signing with the Lakers.

“I do not,” Wright said. “That’s just what I’ve been told. It’s what I’ve been told going back to last summer. I don’t see that as something that’s happening. I think he goes to the Clippers.”

Lakers fans were still pretty excited when LeBron told Kawhi that they would ‘be in touch” after tonight’s game despite the fact that Kawhi doesn’t seem interested in playing for L.A.

Lakers fans couldn’t help but overreact to the video.

And of course there were those who made fun of all the unnecessary speculation.
