Kawhi Leonard was not-so-warmly welcomed back to San Antonio on Thursday night when his new team, the Toronto Raptors, took on the Spurs.
The superstar forward was traded from the Spurs to the Raptors in July after a supposed rift between Leonard and the organization caused the 2014 NBA Final MVP to demand a trade. Danny Green, who spent eight seasons with San Antonio and was traded to Toronto with Leonard, also was welcomed back to AT&T Center.
The Spurs ran a video tribute for the duo prior to the game:
Once starting lineups were announced, however, the crowd let Leonard hear it after giving a warm ovation to Green.
Have a look and listen:
We’re sure Leonard likely will hear more boos throughout the night while he’s on the court.
