New Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard met with Raptors head coach Nick Nurse for the first time recently... and it went well according to a report from the Toronto Star.
"I’d never talked to him before. I don’t think I’m alone in that. So you get a perception of him,” Nurse said, via the Toronto Star. “I’ll be honest with you. I kind of went in there thinking, ‘What if he doesn’t say anything? What am I going to do?’
“I figured I’ll tell him the whole story, this is how our offence is the way it is … I’ll just talk. And if he doesn’t want to say anything, I’ll have plenty of energy.”
Despite his uncertainties heading into the meeting with Leonard, Nurse was pleasantly surprised by how engaged Leonard was with him.
"I sat down and said, ‘Do you have any questions?’ And he started firing them,” Nurse said. “And it just led us to a really easygoing (conversation). Not what I was expecting. Very smart. Very intelligent. Very engaging. Really enjoyed it … (Management) had to drag us out of there in the end because they had to go do something else. But it was great.”
Nurse and Leonard met for around 45 minutes, but it could have gone on for a lot longer, according to Nurse.
