Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors take on San Antonio tonight in a homecoming of sorts for Leonard. As usual, Kawhi sounds less interested than ever. He couldn't provide a better answer than this?
Wow, Kawhi sounds really emotional about his return to the team that drafted him in 2011...
Tears must be streaming down Spurs' fans' faces. It's no secret Kawhi's last year in San Antonio did not go happily for either side. Kawhi sat on the bench while many questioned the validity of his injuries.
Kawhi was traded along with Danny Green to the Toronto Raptors in the offseason for Demar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl, and a 2019 first-round pick.
Still, Leonard could've sounded a bit more grateful or enthusiastic when regarding his former team. Remember, he won a title with the Spurs in 2014, along with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili.
But, I guess enthusiasm is foreign to Kawhi. Just watch how he laughs. It's cringe-inducing.
We'll see how Spurs' fans react to Leonard when his name is announced in the starting lineup over the PA system. Something tells me they won't be very pleased.
