The following Tweets are fairly simple; he would not throw anybody underneath the bus, aside from Peter Rosenberg who was reportedly fiddling on his cellphone throughout an in-studio interview with Lucas this previous 12 months.

But in Lucas’ protection, he’s in all probability strolling away from the media, so he can let the mud settle, and resume his musical profession free the tabloids. I am with Joyner on this one for what it is price, the “for-prit” system can actually summon the ugly out a wise individual, all peoples.

And as we noticed on November 29th, Kawhi Leonard stepped his efficiency ranges up with Kevin Durant within the room. Although Kevin Durant hit a very insane shot to push that contest into additional time, it was Kawhi Leonard’s all-purpose efficiency that shone brightest, as the sport led to a 131-128 Raptors’ win on house soil.
