Spurs coach Gregg Popovich injected realism into the optimism surrounding injured star forward Kawhi Leonard on Wednesday, saying, I’ll be surprised if he returns this season.

Well, we only have X number of games left in the season, and he’s still not ready to go, Popovich said. If by some chance he is, it’s gonna be pretty late into the season; and it’s going to be a pretty tough decision — how late to bring somebody back. So that’s why I’m just trying to be honest and logical. I’ll be surprised if he gets back this year.
The Spurs initially disclosed Leonard’s injury on Sept. 30, announcing that he would miss the entire preseason because of right quadriceps tendinopathy. Popovich said at the time Leonard would probably miss the beginning of the preseason or a good deal of preseason, and the coach indicated the quadriceps issue first developed sometime in the 2016-17 season.
But the job was filled by Pat Shurmur and Belichick told reporters that he absolutely intends to return to coach the Patriots in 2018.

Never mind that he’s under contract with the team for the immediate future and a blockbuster trade would likely be his only ticket out of town.
Belichick turns 66 in April and has created the greatest Jason Zucker Youth jersey dynasty in the history of the NFL. He’ll likely finish his career there, as will Brady. Only the Patriots know how accurate the ESPN report really was, but it doesn’t appear as though it will tear down the league’s Goliath.
After the way he finished the 2010 regular season (well!), his performances became a fun thing to track at the onset of 2011. We were syndicated on the Grantland Network that season, and producer Dave Jacoby’s only real comment on our show was to not get bogged down with stats, but to keep things light and lean into things like Nick Foles in a Losing Effort, which he thought was weird and funny as a non-college football fan. As a senior in 2011, he threw for 4,334 yards, 28 TDs, and 14 INTs, all for a 4-8 team whose coach, Mike Stoops, was fired midseason.
