NBA Media Day is here and so are all the laughs and the anticipation of the 2018-19 season. The Toronto Raptors made key acquisitions to land Kawhi Leonard and he’s ready and focused for this new campaign. Leonard was traded to the Raptors by the San Antonio Spurs. 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.
Per ESPN, Leonard is excited for his future with the Raptors.
“I want to play here,” Leonard said. “I came in with an open mind. I want to do great things … focus on this year. If you’re looking toward the future you’re going to trip over the present.”
He’s ready and appears to be focused. Last season Leonard only played 9 games after dysfunction in the San Antonio Spurs locker room. The best part about his interview was his killer laugh. I couldn’t tell if he wanted to cry or if he was laughing. Flip the page for the video.
