Gregg Popovich 'Felt Badly' Spurs Fans Booed Kawhi Leonard

Kawhi Leonard who is averaging 27.3 points this season was a two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and also won NBA Finals MVP in 2014 during his seven seasons with the team Basketball: What kind of reception can Kawhi Leonard expect in his first return to San Antonio?

But Leonard's unhappiness and request for a trade stunned the organization.

"You're always concerned", Nurse said Sunday, via ESPN. "We're not going to redo what's happened in the past in any way, shape or form". "So I already knew that's how it was going to be". So it doesn't matter what we say. "It's a waste of our time".

Fans were angry that Leonard forced his way out of San Antonio this offseason in a trade that yielded DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl from Toronto for him and Danny Green.

But any thought that San Antonio Spurs fans might treat Leonard to even a mixed reaction were quickly dashed.

Despite the toxic atmosphere at the AT&T Center, Leonard and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich were able to share a nice moment at the end of the game. "So I felt badly, in all honesty".

Maybe we should have seen this coming.

Defeating one of the league's best teams is huge for the Spurs, who look to remain in the West's competitive playoff picture. "This one is gonna be cool too to have Kawhi, and obviously Danny back". From the boos, it is obvious they still feel the same way.

"At times, yeah", Leonard said. "He's been a great teammate, a great friend to me, he deserves that". I'm hoping that it will be a warm welcome back to San Antonio, a place where he has won a championship and grew up here.

The San Antonio faithful also booed him loudly during warmups. It's something that, in college basketball, I used to go through a lot when you'd go on the road, people would really ride certain players and things like that. One thing they've considered is playing a tribute for both Leonard and Green together to soften the reaction. "That's what I expect". February 22 - the day DeRozan returns to Toronto, undoubtedly to a warm welcome - is the day circled on his calendar.

"I felt badly about it. Kawhi's a high-character guy".

Thursday night was a big game for DeRozan as it marked the first time in his 10-season career he ever faced the Raptors, the team that originally drafted him ninth overall in 2009.

Leonard isn't anxious about the reception, saying that a negative reaction "can only make me a better player".
