Leonard strikes exactly the right tone in Raptors introduction

Posted September 25, 2018

When asked about his future with the franchise, he vaguely replied: "If you look toward the future, you're going to trip over the present". I came here with an open mind.

To land Leonard, Toronto gave up DeRozan, a team icon and four-time All-Star.

Leonard played only nine games for the Spurs last season because of a quad injury.

The two-time Defensive Player of the Year was the focal point of today's Media Day in Toronto, as reporters questioned him about his reaction to coming to Toronto and his long-term goals.

Leonard's first words as a Raptor, delivered with a stony face that made them unintentionally deadpan and became instantly meme-worthy were: "I'm a fun guy".

Leonard addressed the rumors that he was unhappy about being in Toronto and that he wanted to go to Los Angeles, saying that he just wanted to win.

"I have no regrets".

Additionally, Nurse said he traveled to San Diego a few times during the offseason to watch Leonard play, and was unsurprisingly impressed.

Leonard joined the Raptors in a summertime blockbuster trade with the San Antonio Spurs. I'm excited, knowing that I'm coming to a city that loves basketball.

Leonard's focus "is on this year, this group that I have and striving to get to a championship".
