LOOK: Kawhi booed, called ‘traitor’ in return to San Antonio
Fans show Leonard how they feel about him in his first game back in San Antonio

MANILA, Philippines – It’s safe to say Kawhi Leonard isn’t welcome in San Antonio for the time being. 

The 27-year-old forward was booed and called a “traitor” in his first game back in San Antonio on Thursday, January 3 (Friday, January 4, Philippine time), since he was traded by the Spurs to the Toronto Raptors during the offseason. 



It had been a bad breakup between Leonard and the team he helped win an NBA championship in 2014 after he reportedly asked for a trade following a growing rift between him and the Spurs. 

On July 18, he was eventually dealt to the Raptors with Danny Green for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl, and a 2019 first round pick. 

San Antonio fans made Leonard know how they felt about him. 


As if things couldn’t get worse for “The Klaw”, the Spurs cruised to rousing 125-107 triumph as the Raptors returned to the losing column after winning back-to-back games. 

But despite all of the drama, Leonard and longtime mentor Gregg Popovich shared a hug at the end of the game.
