The Los Angeles Clippers’ visit to Toronto on Wednesday was the occasion to give Kawhi Leonard his 2019 championship ring, and it’s safe to say that there are no hard feelings from Raptor fans.
Leonard was greeted with a standing ovation and “MVP” chants after a tribute video was shown. He greeted all of the remaining coaches and teammates he played with last season before being handed his ring by Kyle Lowry.
“It was great, it was a great moment,” Leonard said. “They did a great job putting it together, having all the players out there that won with me, standing there and presenting the ring.”
The Clippers went on to defeat the Raptors 112-92, fueled by Leonard’s 23 points, five rebounds and six assists.
Leonard’s time in Toronto will always be remembered for the championship he helped delievered. Clearly by the reception from the fans and organization, everyone is truly grateful.
