'Traitor! Traitor!': Kawhi Leonard destroyed in San Antonio return

DeMar DeRozan Gregg Popovich

The Kawhi Leonard-San Antonio Spurs spanned from his last game on the court on January 13, 2018, where he suffered a quadriceps injury until he was traded to Toronto on July 18, 2018.

Oh, and the Spurs blew out the Raptors, 125-107.

Thursday night was Leonard's first game in San Antonio as a visitor and was welcomed with a cascade of boos almost every time he touched the ball, and weathered a "traitor" chant from the fans as well.

In a video that's been gaining popularity on Twitter, a woman believed to be Leonard's mother can be seen yelling at an obnoxious Spurs fan in the section next to her's within the venue.

After another mesmerizing performance - which included a game-winning 3-pointer in overtime - Harden is averaging 40.1 points, 9.0 assists and 6.6 rebounds over his last 12 games. Since 2005, San Antonio is 31-15-1 (67%) ATS when listed as a small favorite (less than three points) or an underdog at home in the regular season. "You're in a zone of just trying to focus on what you're going to do".

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

Corporations Should Step Up to Save Our National Parks
Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, Hetch Hetchy, Wawona and Hodgdon Meadow Campgrounds, and all snow play areas were also closed. While most U.S. national parks remain open, the shutdown has left staff at home, facilities unavailable and campsites closed .

Leonard's mother Kim Robertson (right) took issue with one fan on Thursday, but the entire AT&T Center in San Antonio seemed determined to make the Leonard family uncomfortable.

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. Things like that will only get me better for the long run. We'll see what the fans show. "MVP!" - something Leonard heard during his time in San Antonio.

DeMar DeRozan took his game to new heights in his first contest against a Raptors organization he spent his first nine National Basketball Association seasons with.

Five months later, DeRozan said he hadn't thought much about the matchup against his former team.

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.

"I think he has something to prove all year, not just there", Green said. I left a team, and it was not good blood there.
