As we all expected, the Toronto Raptors put together an incredible tribute for Kawhi Leonard prior to their matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night. It was so awesome that even the laid-back Leonard had to observe in awe at how much the city appreciates its former Finals MVP.

The Raptors put a video in the jumbotron, highlighting all of Leonard's special moments with the team from their championship season including his introductory press conference, the improbable game-winner against the 76ers, and the final buzzer securing the team's victory in the NBA Finals. They even traced the footsteps from his iconic shot against Philly!

The Toronto crowd also made sure to show their appreciation for The Claw.

Of course, all the Raptors fans were disappointed with Leonard's decision to leave the team after just one year, but they still showed their true class and gratitude for the Toronto legend.
