The “yet” there must be tantalizing for the “he stay” clan and harkens back to one of the classic scenes in the criminally-underrated John Cusack film from 2000, High Fidelity:

It’s possible that Leonard threw that ‘yet’ in as a diabolical troll, but the word “diabolical” doesn’t seem to describe him very well — not that any word truly does.

Unfortunately for the Raptors and their fans everywhere, it seems there just isn’t going to be a definitive answer on Kawhi’s fate in the immediate future. Luckily, being up 3-1 over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals is some consolation.
