Expect Raptors' Kawhi Leonard to get booed in return to San Antonio

Basketball: What kind of reception can Kawhi Leonard expect in his first return to San Antonio?

Kawhi Leonard and former coach Gregg Popovich hugged and had a long discussion after the Spurs' 125-107 win over the Raptors on Thursday.

If there was any uncertainty in anyone's mind as to how the San Antonio crowd would react to Kawhi Leonard's return after his tumultuous departure from the Spurs, you can safely lay that to rest.

In the most anticipated game of the season, the Spurs hosted the Toronto Raptors Kawhi Leonard.

"And one of the reasons is you guys will interpret it any way you want anyway". The Raptors were in a truly hostile environment playing a very good team and, yes, it was one game out of 82 but it might prepare them for what awaits.

DeRozan's 10th assist came on an entry to Aldridge that the Spurs center punctuated with a celebration in honor of his teammate's career milestone.

Leonard said he was not surprised by the fans' reaction. So it doesn't matter what we say.

For now, though, "I don't feel like it's going to be an emotional game", DeRozan said. "He had taken a year off, kind of, not being able to play". Spurs fans gave a much warmer reception to forward Danny Green, a role player on that Spurs championship team who was included in last summer's blockbuster trade.

Flu cases increase across the state
Once someone gets the flu, antiviral drugs can lessen symptoms and hasten recovery, and reduce complications and hospitalizations. Things have dramatically changed over the last 118 years, with infections no longer being common causes of mortality.


Asked whether he regretted the myriad circumstances that led to Leonard's trade, Popovich didn't hesitate.

"This was really disappointing for all of us, from Pop and our program to our players", Spurs general manager R.C. Buford told ESPN.

"I got great shooters around me", DeRozan told the National Basketball Association on TNT during his postgame interview.

In a video that's been gaining popularity on Twitter, a woman believed to be Leonard's mother can be seen yelling at an obnoxious Spurs fan in the section next to her's within the venue. "They knock it down, they make me look good, so all the credit goes to them for sure".

What happened, happened-Leonard felt it was best to move on from San Antonio after he didn't like how the team handled his decision to sit out.

"I think he has something to prove all year, not just there", Green said.
