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

In July a year ago, DeRozan was traded to the Spurs along with Raptors teammate Jakob Poeltl and a protected first-round pick in exchange for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. "Everybody's anticipating the game".

You're gonna say whatever you want.

DeMar was asked about a scenario in which it comes down to one possession going one-on-one against Leonard, with a chance to hit a game victor.

DeRozan finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists as he dominated the battle against Leonard, who was making his first trip back since being traded to Toronto in the offseason. I guess in the bigger picture, it really is just another game.

"I wanted to break every single record that was there, and be the first to do every single thing".

"I don't speak for other people, but I hope that we'll treat everybody with kindness and respect", said Popovich.

But now "it's a world", Stern said - with shape, character and implications for our understanding of planetary science . So far, scientists have learned that Ultima is red, with a rotational period of roughly 15 hours.

Leonard was not about to elaborate on his departure from San Antonio - "I'm not going to discuss that here today", he said quickly and emphatically - but he knew there would be, at best, mixed reaction from fans upon his return.

For now, though, "I don't feel like it's going to be an emotional game", DeRozan said. For those wondering, "Uncle Dennis" is Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard's uncle and the reference to his family member made him laugh on the bench. The defence is finally finding some consistency, and when you add it all up, you get six wins in the past eight games and a team that is just now coming into its own. If not for the media, Leonard seems to think it wouldn't have gone that way. I left a team, and it was not good blood there.

DeRozan, meanwhile, told reporters Wednesday he hadn't thought much of Thursday's reunion. He did, however, say he'll likely feel different on February 22 when he finally returns to Toronto, where DeRozan played the first nine years of his career before the July trade.

"Obviously, I had an inside scoop on the type of player he is and what kind of person he is".

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.
