OVO Sound boss and Toronto Raptors global ambassador Drake believes it’s only right his hometown team landed Kawhi Leonard. The 6 God went to social media this week to draw a big connection between the former San Antonios Spurs champion and the Raptors.
Drizzy went to his Instagram Story Friday (July 20) to present his argument for Leonard embracing the Raptors lifestyle.

Kawhi is just combination of the words Kawall and Wallahi. The man was destined to play for the Raptors.

Earlier in the week, Drake penned an open letter bidding farewell to longtime Raptor DeMar DeRozan and welcoming Leonard to the city.
To my brother @demar_derozan I want to say 10 million thank you’s on behalf of YOUR city. You are a fixture in Toronto forever and you gave everything you had. Through your leadership we had the most exciting years in franchise history. I am grateful to have witnessed your combination of skill, persistence, and loyalty from the same seats every night. Thank you for being an incredible captain and an even better friend. To Kawhi…we look forward to a this new chapter and we welcome you to the most intense and supportive city in NBA basketball!!! You have always been a poised clinical warrior and I can’t wait to see how Toronto inspires your fight. Let’s Go Raptors.
Along with Leonard, the Raptors also received the Spurs’ star player Danny Green.
