I bet he does

Kawhi Leonard faces the Spurs for the first time since the organization traded the forward and Danny Green to Toronto in exchange for DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl and a 2019 first-round pick.

Asked about why he wanted out of San Antonio, Leonard said, "I'm not going to discuss that here today."

But Leonard did admit he wishes the drama between him and the Spurs had played out differently.

"At times, yeah," Leonard said. "But it's a new year, new season. I'm just looking at what is in front of us right now."

Leonard isn't worried about the reception, saying a negative reaction "can only make me a better player."

Former Spuer Danny Green, meanwhile, expressed optimism that both he and Leonard would experience a positive reception in their returns.

"I'm waiting to see," Green said. "I hope for one [reaction], predict and guess another. I'm waiting to see just like everybody else. We'll see what the fans show. I guess in the bigger picture, it really is just another game. I think for both sides the guys that have been in the trade and have been moved and played for both organizations, it's definitely probably a little more."

I expect Kahwi to receive some boos, especially considering how he go out of San Antonio. 

He was pretty great though.
