You'd think after helping a team win their first NBA Championship title, being named Finals MVP in the process, that fans would be pretty supportive. However, that doesn't seem to have been the case for Kawhi Leonard. As Kawhi made his debut for the Los Angeles Clippers, fans could be heard booing the Klaw all night long.\nIt doesn't look like Kawhi let the negativity get to him, as he hit 30 points of his team's 112, with six rebounds and five assists. That decisive contribution saw the Clippers beat their LA rivals the Lakers in the season opener.\nThough Kawhi managed to remind people why he is such a standout talent in the NBA, Lakers fans were certainly not happy to see him.\nIt all started even before Kawhi arrived on the court at Staples Center — which, it's worth noting, the Clippers share with the Lakers, therefore making any "home advantage" rather more subjective. Fans were booing the champ as he appeared on the screen and when he was introduced to the crowd.\nJust last week, Kawhi had a strikingly different experience as he arrived back on Canadian soil for the first time since he left the Raptors. Canadians made sure to give Kawhi a warm welcome when the Clippers and the Dallas Mavericks played a preseason game in Vancouver.\nFans outside of Staples Center boo Kawhi Leonard when he comes on screen before Lakers-Clippers game pic.twitter.com/u8IebO27Yc— The Render (@TheRenderNBA) October 23, 2019\nKawhi gets boo’ed by the home crowd on opening night.

It likely just comes down to the LA city rivalry, as well as the fact that everyone loves to take a shot at the king, particularly when he turns down calls to sign for your team to instead join your local enemies.\nHowever, some Twitter responses suggested that if Kawhi had stayed in Toronto, maybe he wouldn't be getting all this heat.\nDamn!!! He should of stayed in Toronto— Marlo britton (@marlo_britton) October 23, 2019\nCanada didn’t do him like this— Paul Larry (@paullarryy) October 23, 2019\nLakers fans have no class....Kawhi should have stayed with Toronto.#Kawhi #NBAisBack #nba https://t.co/reMVoB18TD— $@r@ (@thenorthaspoken) October 23, 2019\nThat’s a warm welcome?
