Leonard’s game-winner to advance the Raptors in the 2019 postseason will likely be one of the defining basketball images of the decade. No matter any animosity felt by any section of Toronto fans, Leonard’s heroics brought the franchise their first championship during his only season in Canada.
Leonard appears on line to spend the next half-decade of his career in Los Angeles, where he will have the chance to deliver historic moments such as what he did in Toronto.
