Kawhi Leonard blames media for Spurs fans booing him

Kawhi Leonard blames media for Spurs fans booing him

The playoffs will determine the success of the Kawhi Leonard gambit, but they are putting themselves in good shape to be a legitimate Finals contender. It was worse than he expected.

Toronto's matchup against San Antonio would have been the first time Lowry faced DeRozan since he was traded to the Spurs in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green in the off-season.

"You're always concerned", Nurse said Sunday, via ESPN. "I wasn't on the end kind of how (DeRozan's trade) went down. That's what made it so fun". "They knock it down, they make me look good, so all the credit goes to them for sure".

Green came to Toronto with Leonard in the trade for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a protected 2019 first-round pick last July, but it's unlikely he'll receive the same vitriol as Leonard.

The boos from the San Antonio fans continued during a video tribute that the Spurs had put together to honor Leonard. "So I felt badly, honestly", Popovich said of the booing. "I knew he was a scorer, I knew he was a great teammate and all that sort of thing, high character".

This was the first attack to target foreign tourists in nearly two years. The bus driver later told local media he had not deviated from the route.

And as Raptors coach Nick Nurse pointed out, if there's any player unflappable enough to withstand a choir of 20,000 spiteful voices, it's Leonard. "MVP!" - something Leonard heard during his time in San Antonio.

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. What he's provided the Raptors in this context (in addition to his overall play) is a sort of safety blanket for Leonard. "Spurs did a great job pushing the pace and kicking out for wide-open shots".

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

Oh, and the Spurs blew out the Raptors, 125-107. Green ran over to and hugged Popovich prior to tipoff.

With 30 seconds left in overtime, Kevin Durant lost control of the ball in the paint and chased it into the corner.
