Hall of Famer Reggie Miller: Spurs should retire Kawhi Leonard's jersey

For seven seasons, Raptors' Kawhi Leonard wore the San Antonio Spurs jersey.

With San Antonio, he would go on to win an NBA title (2014), become an NBA All-Star, win the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year twice and grow into the player he is today.

The end to his Spurs career was rocky and would ultimately force the Spurs to trade him to Toronto.

However, is what he did during his time with the Spurs enough to see his jersey hanging in the AT&T Center once his NBA career is over?

Basketball Hall of Famer Reggie Miller joined "The Dan Patrick Show" recently and suggested the San Antonio Spurs should retire Leonard's Spurs jersey once he retires.

Does San Antonio and I know Toronto is going to, do they retire, when it's all said and done, do they retire Kawhi's number? Does his number hang from the rafters both in San Antonio and Toronto?
The only reason I ask that is how he left there. Will there be water under the bridges?
You did deliver us one of our five championships. I believe he should have his number retired in both (cities), when it's all said and done, because we will consider him one of the all-time greats.

Most of the San Antonio fan base is still bitter at how he left the Spurs.

In his first return to the AT&T Center last season, he was meet with jeers, boos and much more. His murals in San Antonio were erased and he remains a hot topic among Spurs fans on how and why he ultimately was traded in 2018.

What say you Spurs fans? Do you think Leonard's Spurs number should be retired some day? Let me know at @JeffGSpursZone.
