Raptors fans across the country and around the world are celebrating the 29th birthday of the one and only Kawhi Leonard.
Leonard was born in Los Angeles on June 29, 1991. It’s also been almost a year since Kawhi was traded to the Raptors and we all know that the rest is history after that. Leonard was traded to Toronto on July 18th, 2018.
Free agency opens in the NBA at 6 p.m. Sunday and Raptors fans are hoping that a return home is not in the offing for the superstar. In addition with talks with the Raptors, Leonard has drawn interest from the Clippers and Lakers, his hometown teams.
People have been doing whatever it takes to convince him to re-sign in Toronto.
From offers of free meals, homes and trips, Raptor fans hope persistence pays off. They’re also hoping they don’t have to wait too long before the decision is known.
