Leonard jokes at Raptors media day: 'I'm a fun guy'

Leonard jokes at Raptors media day: 'I'm a fun guy'

The Toronto Raptors forward sent the internet into meltdown Monday with his, um, unique laugh he broke out while speaking to reporters during the team's media day.

"As long as I have on a jersey I want to play basketball", said the soft-spoken Leonard.

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. I want to do great things. focus on this year.

"If you look at the future, you are going to trip on the present".

In addition to talking about his potential future with Toronto, Leonard also was asked to describe himself for Raptors fans who might not know much about him.

As to his time with the Spurs, Leonard said he didn't have any regrets, but didn't dive into the drama surrounding his exit.




Green, a nine-season National Basketball Association veteran, has played with Leonard in San Antonio since 2011.

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. Leonard is primarily interested in signing with the Lakers or Clippers in July, league sources tell ESPN.

Raptors staff believe they can sell the two-time Defensive Player of the Year on the city and get him to stay when his single-season commitment comes to an end.

"I was to focus on the present time and not look back".

Kawhi Leonard broke his silence to the delight of some internet users and the horror of others.

"I'm here to do my job", Lowry said.
