According to the sports outlet, sources also stated that the NBA star often warmed up in his own separate space away from the team. 

In fact, multiple payers were said to have felt uneasy about the arrangement. 

“What were they going to do about it?” one league source told the Athletic. “It’s Kawhi.”

However, the special privileges supposedly aren't the first to be awarded to the player, who was preferential with the Toronto Raptors as well.
