Kawhi Leonard says he's healthy and excited to be a Toronto Raptor
(TORONTO) - Leonard finally addressed the media in a jam-packed press conference, the first time he's spoken publicly since the blockbuster trade that sent DeMar DeRozan to San Antonio. Despite reports that Leonard plans to test free agency next off-season, the former defensive player of the year says he's excited to play in a "basketball city," where fans embrace the team.

"As long as I have on a jersey I want to play basketball," said the soft-spoken Leonard. "I came here with an open mind. I want to do great things so I'm going to make sure I put in a full effort on the court each and every night."
"By winning games this is how you get star-calibre players to want to come here and play."
Obviously Leonard is glad to be out of San Antonio and to all the San Antonio Fans (if there is any left), stop dumping your wardrobe money into these players.
It's a waste.
