One of Kawhi Leonard’s teammates might be feeling his wrath now that the former Finals MVP is back from injury.

Leonard returned to the court for the LA Clippers on Wednesday, notching 28 points and seven assists in a blowout win over the Portland Trail Blazers. After the victory, Leonard joked about trading away teammate Serge Ibaka, who elbowed him in the mouth during a Christmas Day contest, causing Leonard to miss the next two games.

“Serge can’t talk too much,” said Leonard, per Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints. “We got him on the trading block right now. So whoever wants him, let us know. We trying to trade Serge.”

While Leonard’s stone-faced delivery might suggest otherwise, Ibaka has little to worry about. The two are close, having previously been teammates on the Toronto Raptors and winning the 2019 NBA title. Ibaka also recently told a hilarious story about how Leonard recruited him to the Clippers.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
