Kawhi Leonard's mom gets heated with Spurs fan during son's return

  • Gregg Popovich Kawhi Leonard Spurs

This season, Leonard is averaging 27.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game while shooting 49.7 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from deep.

With the potential of Leonard's first back-to-back of the season coming this weekend, his return to San Antonio is a headline that is finally out of the way and can take a backseat to what lies ahead for the Raptors. No, not at all.

He won a championship with them in 2014, was named Finals MVP and earned a couple of Defensive Player of the Year awards in black and silver.

And his old coach, I'm guessing, will always have a special place in his heart for Leonard for what they accomplished together.

This game with the Spurs and Raptors has been on everyone's mind since the huge blockbuster trade that went down this past summer. So it doesn't matter what we say. Some reports have suggested the Spurs might have misdiagnosed his initial injury, while others have painted Leonard as a star who just wanted to force his way to a bigger market.

"You move on in life", he said.

"I'm waiting to see. Things like that only get me better for the long run, so it's going to be a good game".


Two days after being serenaded by chants of "M-V-P!" in Toronto, Raptors star Kawhi Leonard is about to return to an arena where fans won't be almost so kind.

This is his first contest against the Raptors since the trade, and he was vehemently upset when Toronto sent him to San Antonio after nine seasons with the club.

"At times, yeah", Leonard said.

Thanks to the warm welcome he received in San Antonio, DeRozan's transition has been made a lot easier. In addition, the crowd chanted "Danny, Danny" leading up to Green being introduced prior to the game.

"I got great shooters around me", DeRozan told the National Basketball Association on TNT during his postgame interview. February 22 - the day DeRozan returns to Toronto, undoubtedly to a warm welcome - is the day circled on his calendar. "I put [in] a lot of work here".

"I hope they react just as well and the same that they do with any other ex-teammate that comes back", Spurs guard Patty Mills said. I'm waiting to see just like everybody else.
