Fan gets tattoo of Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7 game-winner vs. Sixers
Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard’s series-clinching buzzer-beater in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semi-finals will forever be remembered as one of the greatest game-winners in modern day NBA history. But for one Raptors fan, remembering it isn’t enough.
Tattoo artist Kristian Tabungar of Anbu Tattoo Studio in Toronto shared a photo on Instagram of a tattoo he did showing Leonard’s iconic moment when he was waiting for the ball to go in after taking the final shot in Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Sometimes, die-hard fans do incredible things just to show their love and support for their hometown teams.
This Raptors fan have shown loyalty to Leonard, despite the fact that the All-Star forward might be gone from Toronto after this season, as there are rumors that Kawhi is seriously considering joining one of the Los Angeles teams during free agency.
Still, Leonard is giving everything he’s got for the Raptors. He’s been a one-man show for the team in most of their playoff games, so fans can’t really complain about the effort that he’s given for the sake of the franchise’s success.
If this is Kawhi’s one and only season in Toronto, don’t expect fans to burn his jersey or curse him throughout the entire year. They know what the former Finals MVP has given for the franchise, and all they could do is thank him for it.
Just like the fan with the tattoo showing the world that Leonard has left a permanent mark in his heart… and his leg.
