Kawhi Leonard might never play another game for the San Antonio Spurs, but the social media team has a responsibility.
The disgruntled forward turned 28 years old Friday, and the organization wished him a happy birthday.

It was both enormously awkward and tremendously hilarious — and many Twitter users shared one of those feelings.
Let me know if he hits y'all back https://t.co/kDyyqUP70Y

If they hadn't tweeted this it would be a story tomorrow that they didn't wish him a happy birthday. I prefer it this way. https://t.co/GAOY2fuHq4

I’m willing to bet the @Spurs birthday tweet to Kawhi was scheduled. Also, dude is still on the roster, so why wouldn’t they?
