What Kawhi Leonard had to say about joining the Toronto Raptors

25 September 2018

Aldridge was asked about Leonard at a Spurs media day and he said he wants to turn the page on the saga.

"I want to play here", he said, unblinkingly. I came here with an open mind. You know I want to do great things, so I'm going to make sure I put my all effort on the court each and every night. "By winning games, that's how you get star-calibre players who want to come here".

"Obviously I love the game of basketball", Leonard said, before he was faced with more pressing questions surrounding his impending free agency at the conclusion of this campaign - a topic that will no doubt follow Leonard and the Raptors all season.

"I have no regrets".

At one point when providing his description of himself, Leonard even burst out into laughter, which surprised basically everyone.

Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin III of West Virginia, also called for slowing the process. Democratic lawmakers are demanding a delay on the committee vote to advance Kavanaugh to the full Senate's confirmation vote.

Leonard, a two-time Defensive Player of the Year, was traded to the Raptors on July 18 by the San Antonio Spurs.

The Toronto Raptors are sick of being perceived as a team that National Basketball Association players don't want to play for.

"I'm a fun guy". The Raptors sent guard DeMar DeRozan, center Jakob Poeltl and a protected first-round pick in 2019 to San Antonio for Leonard and veteran Danny Green. We have a very talented team that I am looking forward to playing with them.

After several questions to Leonard and Green on Monday about their desire to stay in Toronto, Ujiri chastised the media for casting a negative light on Leonard's arrival.

"Believe in this city, believe in yourselves".
