Kawhi Leonard In Game 7 Was Eliminated By An Ontario Player & Toronto Fans Are Screaming

Toronto fans are screaming after Kawhi Leonard in Game 7 was eliminated by an NBA player from Ontario. Raptors fans tuned in last night to watch the NBA playoff bout between the Clippers and Denver. The loss of the Clippers was only further elevated by the fact that an Ontario basketball player beat the former Raptor.

The Nuggets' Jamal Murray, who hails from Kitchener, Ontario, was on fire during the team's Game 7 faceoff.

The 23-year-old was everything the Raptors hoped Pascal Siakam would be during their own deciding moment.

The star put up a whopping 40 points against Leonard's team, ultimately winning them the game at 104-89. 

In contrast, Kawhi, who garnered a lot of the credit for Toronto's 2019 championship win, scored just 14 points throughout the night. 

After the defeat, Toronto fans were not about to let the Board Man forget what he left behind and could've had if he had chosen to stick with the 6ix.

"Kawhi could have run through the league with the Raptors again or with the Lakers and put his fate in Paul George's hands. I feel nothing," wrote one fan.

"We tried telling y'all Kawhi needed the Raptors just as much as the Raptors needed Kawhi, but you didn't listen," added another.

Last summer, Toronto was swept up in Kawhi-Watch, a mania that had fans and businesses offering grand gestures to keep the Finals MVP in Canada.

However, despite some pretty big bribes, including an entire condo, Leonard ultimately chose to go back home to L.A.

While the 29-year-old NBA star may have done what he thought was best, the outcome for both teams has not been as successful as the playoffs last year.
