Raptors New City Uniform Leaks on Media Day

Additionally, Nurse said he traveled to San Diego a few times during the offseason to watch Leonard play, and was unsurprisingly impressed. "This is going to be a fun year".

Sure, Kawhi's presser did little to convince us that he's not just a basketball super robot that can also function as a human, but with all jokes aside, it didn't take long for Raptors fans to begin to admit they were excited for the upcoming season. I'm really happy to be back on this floor and back in Toronto, I'm ready to play.

After all, Leonard is under contract for just one more year, he's coming off an injury-plagued, nine-game season and a odd, seemingly bitter divorce from the only team he'd ever played for and with which he'd won an National Basketball Association championship in 2014. "I was wondering if anyone was going to talk to me, you know?"

The other swooping change in Raptors land this summer was the firing of beloved and respected head coach Dwane Casey, who led the team to historically great regular seasons but only playoff disappointments during his time with Toronto. (Miles), we're in our young 30s. He's going to make us better. "To have the opportunity to play with him, he brings some things like consistency and understand he has a championship".

"It's our jobs to try and sell it to these players here, but we're proud of who we are, we're proud to have these guys".

Oil hovers near $80, supply concern expected to underpin prices
China, one of the world's largest oil consumers, on Tuesday added $60 billion of US products to its import tariff list. Shale explorers added last week the most oil rigs in a month as a pipeline bottleneck in the busy U.S.

That disparity is a function of the calculated risk they took in trading for Leonard - something of a wild card after missing all but nine games with a quad injury last season and then forcing his way out of San Antonio - and shaking up the chemistry in a tightly-knit locker room. "We have to move on from that", he said.

The anxiety about the unknown - while understandable - has its limits and is ultimately self-defeating, as most of us are all too aware, even as we're powerless to stop our own fretting.

"We're adding a talent like DeMar that we didn't have previous year", Popovich said. I've done that every year since I've been here. Popovich sees no reason success won't continue for the franchise. Will some of their depth of talent off the bench buy into playing spot minutes for the good of the team?

"At the end of the day, it's confidence", Murray said. "I don't care about what happened between him and the Spurs".

"My best friend, our relationship is bigger than basketball. We'll see how that all plays out". "Let's just go from there".
