Meyers Leonard issues plea reminding fans that NBA stars are ‘real people with real s–t going on’
- Updated: December 14, 2020
Yet, Leonard wanted to remind fans who think NBA players are paid too much of one important thing.
He was speaking about how yes, NBA players are paid a lot to play a game, but let's not forget that they are human beings as well.

Leonard, 28, became a fan favorite in his first year in Miami.
The center is known for supporting his teammates, being generous in the community and being an anchor in the paint.
As a matter of fact, Leonard was a full-time starter last season before the novel coronavirus interrupted the NBA in March. He fell out of the rotation as the Heat started to thrive in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Fla.
Yet, the Heat found it vital to bring back the veteran. Leonard believes the Heat have championship potential this upcoming season.
The 7-footer collected 6.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per game last season.
