How it Began: The Kawhi Leonard Trade Revisited
The Raptors are champions! And it began lastÂ July 18, when General Manager Masai Ujiri traded his team's most beloved player. Some fans were angry. Some Raptors were angry. But Ujiri was unrepentant. The day the trade became official, we talked to Michael Grange of Sportsnet about what loyalty means in sports, why Ujiri would make this move, and what Kawhi could mean for a city that didn't know how to win when it counted. Eleven months later, the Raptors are NBA champions and it's worth revisiting this chat to relive just how impossible this fairy tale ending was when it all began.
