Kawhi Leonard made his return to San Antonio on Thursday night for the first time as a member of the Toronto Raptors since he forced his way out of town last season. He was loudly booed by Spurs fans during the player introductions.

Kawhi was later hit with traitor chants as he shot free throws and he didn’t appear to appreciate the trolling in his return to San Antonio.

The Spurs handed the Raptors a 125-107 loss. Kawhi finished with 21-points, but was overshadowed by the performance of former Raptor DeMar DeRozan, who finished with a triple double.
It was not a fun night for Kawhi. We wouldn’t be shocked if he was out of the lineup the next time the Raptors are in San Antonio.
