Kawhi says he's 'a fun guy' to open Raptors media day

Kawhi says he's 'a fun guy' to open Raptors media day

"If you look into the future, you'll trip over the present".

A free agent next summer, Leonard said he arrived in Toronto "with an open mind", but wasn't ready to talk about what that means long-term.

Raptors president discusses the trade between the San Antonio Spurs that brought Kawhi Leonard to Toronto.

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

A reporter asked Leonard an utterly forgettable question about his personality, and the first-year Raptor topped off his answer with a laugh that will sear itself into your memory.

"I'm a fun guy".

After all, Leonard is under contract for just one more year, he's coming off an injury-plagued, nine-game season and a odd, seemingly bitter divorce from the only team he'd ever played for and with which he'd won an National Basketball Association championship in 2014.

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

"I'm a fun guy", Leonard said.

Leonard's tenure in Toronto will be one of the most-followed National Basketball Association storylines this season. When prompted, Leonard spoke of the process that he believes is going to play out during the next year of his life. "We should move past that".

Leonard joined the Raptors in a summertime blockbuster trade with the San Antonio Spurs.

I get they want to represent all of Canada, but isn't that what the red/white uniform is for? "But I want to focus on this team, this journey that we have in front of us today, and just stay in the present time, and not look back".
