Gregg Popovich 'Felt Badly' Spurs Fans Booed Kawhi Leonard

James Harden has strung together nine straight games of 35 or more points and five straight games of 40 or more points

James Harden has strung together nine straight games of 35 or more points and five straight games of 40 or more points

Leonard finished with 21 points on 8-for-13 shooting, as the Raptors rolled past the Spurs 125-107.

During a recent episode of Inside the Green Room with Danny Green, Rudy Gay, who now plays for the San Antonio Spurs with DeRozan, was asked about the quote.

We can't wait for tonight's game.

Leonard helped lead the Spurs to an National Basketball Association championship in 2014 while being named Finals MVP, but played just nine games last season with some rather mysterious injury issues, leading many to believe he, in some way, "quit" on the team. This was the first time DeRozan recorded a triple-double in his career, making it a successful game against his former squad.

Leonard forced his way out of San Antonio in a trade that yielded DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl from Toronto for Leonard and Danny Green.

Large numbers of federal contractors are also losing pay in what is already one of the longest shutdowns in USA history. However, opponents would nearly certainly accuse him of presidential overreach and respond with court challenges.

Leonard and his family were greeted instead with vitriol, starting before the opening tip to well after the game ended. The boos continued during a pregame video tribute and player introductions, whenever he touched the ball and as he walked off the court following the lopsided loss.

That's why the trade that sent DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio hurt him so much.

Maybe we should have seen this coming. Just ask the Warriors. He's averaging 19.9 FanDuel points through 39 games this season.

Considering how the Warriors were able to take the lead before the final possession, Harden's game-winner was poetic justice.

"I feel like it's mended between Coach Pop and Kawhi", Pippen said. We all make decisions in our lives about what we're going to do with our futures and he has that same right as any of us. "So I felt badly, in all honesty".
