A Toronto Raptors fan has gone viral on Twitter, and the reason why is awesome.
Twitter user @CaptMaverick85 posted a video of a Kawhi Leonard jersey being hung from a stairwell, and the post has been viewed nearly 1.2 million times! (RELATED: Los Angeles Clippers Sign Kawhi Leonard)
Even though it’s not an actual jersey retirement, it still pulled my heartstrings.

It’s amazing how chill Raptors fans have been about Kawhi leaving. They still absolutely love the guy. Most fanbases will torch a player the moment he leaves.
Not the nice people in Canada. They’re still treating Kawhi like a walking and talking God, despite the fact he left for the Clippers.
Again, how many fans would do the same? I went to Bryce Harper’s return to Washington D.C., and it was brutal.
I guess things change quickly once you bring a town its first title.

I have a feeling the moment Kawhi returns to Toronto, he will be greeted like an absolute king, which is exactly how he should be embraced.
Well done, random Raptors fan. That was a fun way to honor the NBA superstar.
