Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard's mother was in attendance for her son's game against the San Antonio Spurs Thursday night - the first time he's played there since he reportedly forced his way out of the Texas team. With one older Spurs fan yelling at her son, Leonard's mom stood up and yelled across the aisle to confront the man. In one of his first tweets after the trade to San Antonio, DeRozan might have had this game in mind.

Over the summer, DeRozan said that his first meeting with the Raptors would be a game he had circled on his calendar.

Leonard said he was not surprised by the fans' reaction. It doesn't matter who we're playing. 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. "I knew he was a scorer, I knew he was a great teammate and all that sort of thing, high character".

During Thursday evening's contest between the San Antonio Spurs and the Toronto Raptors, Spurs fans started chanting "Uncle Dennis".

Despite leading the Spurs to an National Basketball Association championship in 2014, many fans in the Alamo City are still upset that he wanted out of town. "One of my all-time favourite point guards I ever played with, toughest competitor I ever played with, so I wish. he was able to be out there".

"I just wanted to go out and have fun", said DeRozan.

"I guess just as much anticipation as you guys have had the first three, four months of the season or so", Green said.

Five months later, DeRozan said he hadn't thought much about the matchup against his former team.

There is every possibility that Leonard gets moved on to DeRozan should the former Raptor get hot, but the thinking is Green is more than capable of taking on the challenge DeRozan presents while freeing up Leonard to use his energy on offence, where he will be counted on heavily with Lowry expected out again.

"Haircut. I'm going to get my hair cut, get some food, might see some friends and family, might be doing a podcast later, we'll see", he said.

"Obviously, it's a team we both used to play for so I'm sure he's going to want to do well, especially there".
