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

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

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

The discord grew between Leonard and the Spurs, which prompted the team to trade Leonard and Danny Green to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan. In fact, they've won at least 48 games in each of their last five seasons.

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.

"He's a fun guy (when) you get to know him", Green said.

Among the questions, Leonard was asked about his commitment to the team and whether or not he wanted to be playing for the Raptors. 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.

"I have no regrets". "We should move past that".

During his six seasons in San Antonio, Leonard was a two-time All-Star and two-time Defensive Player of the Year, in addition to winning an NBA championship and NBA Finals MVP in 2014.

While Leonard was mum on his split from the Spurs, he did say he wants Raptors fans to know he's a "fun guy" who "loves the game of basketball".

"I want to focus on this team, this journey that we have in front of us today and just spend it on present time and not look back", he said.

"I'm excited about the city, knowing it is a basketball city".
