The personality of the Toronto Raptors has made a dramatic turn since Kawhi Leonard left to free agency in the off-season. It’s like the team has had a facelift.
The stoic Raptors are gone. Last year, they took on the personality of Kawhi Leonard and played it cool, bottling up their emotions in favor of the assassin’s look.
But there’s a new freedom in their personality and style this year. They don’t mind showing their emotions. They are wearing the determined look of a team hungry to show they can be champions without Kawhi Leonard.
