The San Antonio Spurs have traded Kawhi Leonard to the Toronto Raptors for DeMar DeRozan and everyone seems to have strong feelings about it – especially Drake.
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.

The rapper and “Global Ambassador” posted this to Instagram in the wake of the blockbuster deal which appears to have left both players worse off. Not only was DeRozan upset about being shipped off in the manner in which he was, Leonard apparently has no interest in playing for Toronto.
So, just like Drake, all we can do is hope that this is all part of ‘God’s Plan’ and that both players, and franchises, will be better for it.
