According to sources, Gregg Popovich regretted comments he made recently about Kawhi Leonard's leadership.

"Kawhi was a great player, but he wasn't a leader or anything," Popovich said of Leonard. "Manu [Ginobili] and Patty [Mills] were the leaders. Kawhi's talent will always be missed, but that leadership wasn't his deal at that time."

Popovich regretted the comments and also how they were perceived.
