Leonard then requested a trade from the Spurs after the playoff series and was traded that summer.
Neither side has offered any details on the saga - a stance that continues.
"You're always concerned", Nurse said Sunday, via ESPN.
Every time he touched the rock, went to the basket, or did basically anything during warmups, the crowd jeered their former All-Star like he stole all their mothers' lunch money.
While others went as far as straight-up hoping for DeMar to go full savage mode and have a monster night against Toronto despite their Raptors fandom.
The circumstances surrounding Leonard's final season in San Antonio still are shrouded in mystery. He smiled at several points during the game and even walked over to give Spurs coach Gregg Popovich a hug when the game was over.
Leonard said he was not surprised by the fans' reaction. "Everybody's anticipating the game".
Barcelona confirm recent talks with PSG about Rabiot
Rabiot will probably be left at home when the PSG squad travels to Qatar in mid-January for the club's Winter Tour. Barcelona do say in their statement, however, that they have had contact with PSG and expressed their interest.
The trade is working out well for both teams - for now. The two-time National Basketball Association defensive player of the year is also averaging career highs of 27.3 points and 8.2 rebounds a night.
Leonard's Raptors still hold the superior record at 28-12 and are tied atop the Eastern Conference rankings with the emergent Milwaukee Bucks.
With the win, the Spurs move to 11-3 since December 6 while the Raptors are 7-7 in their last 14 games. "So I felt badly, honestly", Popovich said of the booing. "We'll see tonight, I don't know". People have treated him well - the community, fans and people here in San Antonio. "He's been a great teammate". I'm hoping that it will be a warm welcome back to San Antonio, a place where he has won a championship and grew up here.
One day ahead of the meeting, he was unsure if the game would be emotional but Thursday night had all the components of an emotional game.
Five months later, DeRozan said he hadn't thought much about the matchup against his former team. But there wasn't [any] emotions, wasn't emotional at all for me. We have just got to embrace it.
"I felt badly about it. Kawhi's a high-character guy".
