The Toronto Raptors last night moved to within one victory of the NBA Finals, with Kawhi Leonard leading his team to victory. Leonard has starred throughout the playoffs, but the forward could soon be set to leave the Raptors.
As of July 1, Leonard will be an unrestricted free agent and the Los Angeles Clippers are rumored to be leading the chase for his signature. In a bid to persuade the forward to re-sign, Raptors fans have responded with the Ka’Wine & Dine initiative. Their motto is simple: “Wine him, dine him, let’s re-sign him!”
As part of the initiative, several Toronto restaurants are offering Leonard a lifetime of free dining if he commits to a long term contract. Leonard will eat and drink free of charge at any location bearing the initiative’s badge in their window, and more than 50 have already signed up to the campaign.
Leonard has remained characteristically tight-lipped on the matter, but Uber drivers, too, are getting in on the action. Cars bearing the Ka’Wine & Dine badge have pledged to chauffeur the star forward around The Six for free (from restaurant to restaurant, presumably).
