NBA fans calling San Diego AM/PM where Kawhi Leonard was supposedly spotted on Friday
#KawhiWatch has intensified Day 6 into the start of free agency, with San Diego residents vigorously tweeting Kawhi Leonard’s San Diego location and NBA fans calling a convenience store asking whether the All-Star was there or not.
Day 6 of Kawhi's Free Agency: Upon possible spotting of Kawhi Leonard, fans have now begun calling the AM PM in question to interrogate the cashier.
That's where we are at.

I just spoke with someone at the AMPM in Carmel Valley and they said that Kawhi Leonard was in fact there around 12:30pm PT (3:30pm ET)…so take it for what it is #KawhiWatch

The NBA has essentially lost its mind while waiting for Kawhi Leonard to announce his decision. The two-time Finals MVP is reportedly choosing between the Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers
Leonard led the Raptors to the franchise’s first NBA title last month, winning his second Finals MVP honors in the process. It’s rumored Leonard could stay with Toronto by signing a “one-plus-one” deal — playing one more season in Canada before assessing his options in the second year.
Fans apparently spotted the 6-foot-7 forward with ease as he shopped at a AM/PM store.

Leonard has been rigorously followed by NBA pundits and fans alike, tracking the two-time Defensive Player of the Year across states and countries using airplane tracking data and photos/videos shared on social media. Leonard is reportedly back from traveling to Toronto where he reportedly met with Raptors officials.
He has also met with Clippers and Lakers officials in Los Angeles, during which he reportedly talked with Magic Johnson to ask about the Purple and Gold.
