Jubilant fans have demanded on social media that Kawhi Leonard of the Toronto Raptors be handed the Toronto Mayor’s job along with anything else he wanted.
Leonard, triggered a fan frenzy after making an incredible shot at the end of Game 7 to beat the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.
And Toronto Mayor John Tory jokingly supported the call for Leonard to be given his( Tory’s) job/
“Even I would have to consider the call for Kawhi Leonard to be the mayor of the city, although I don’t think he’d like the job very much,” Tory told reporters with a smile on Monday.
“You would have trouble, as the media, with the shortness of his answers — you’d miss my long answers as much as you might not admit that.”
Leonard’s shot bounced off the rim four times before going in. The win sent the team to the conference finals against the Milwaukee Bucks.
