Kawhi Leonard helped to bring Toronto its first ever NBA Championship by defeating the defending champions, Golden State Warriors in six games. There was disappointment in the city when “The Claw” decided not to return to the Raptors franchise. Although, he is now apart of the Los Angeles Clippers, Kawhi Leonard showed his appreciation for the fans and city that showed him so much fanfare.
“I want to thank the Toronto Raptors fans. I don’t have social media so i’m not able to put a paragraph out or whatever,” Leonard joked. “Thank all of Toronto, the city, the country. It was a great, amazing season. It was the best parade ever.”Kawhi Leonard
