Kawhi Leonard fans are creating murals all over the city

Kawhi Leonard fans are creating murals all over the city

Last year, fans were heartbroken when the team traded long-time Raptor DeMar DeRozan (the self-proclaimed “sacrificial lamb“) for current MVP Kawhi Leonard. Oh, how things change. Now that we’re one game away from securing that sweet, sweet victory—largely thanks to Leonard—Torontonians are going to extreme lengths to get him to stick around. One real estate agency offered him a free multi-million dollar condo, dozens of restaurants are dishing out free food for the Raptor as part of the “Ka’wine and Dine” initiative, a woman in Cambridge named her baby after him and murals have been popping up all over the city. Here are the best ones.

A few days after Leonard’s historic buzzer-beater to clinch the series over the Sixers, this tribute showed up on Queen West:
