Spurs president-coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard – who spent his first seven seasons in San Antonio before being traded to the Raptors – wasn’t a leader.

Leonard seemingly didn’t appreciate that.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Popovich regretted his comments and the way they were perceived. But this seems like a weird thing to leak through anonymous sources.
