John Tory jokes that he supports calls for Raptors Kawhi Leonard as mayor
But the mayor says the Raptors star wouldn't like the job
Toronto Mayor John Tory has joked that he supports calls on social media for Raptors star Kawhi Leonard to take his job.
But Tory says that Leonard, who won the series-clinching Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday with an incredible shot, would not like the gig.
The mayor says Leonard's shot that bounced on the rim four times before going in was the longest two seconds in sport history.
Tory says he didn't place a ceremonial bet on the Raptors with Philadelphia's mayor and may not do so against the team's next opponent in Milwaukee.
He mused that it may be best if he didn't bet so that he doesn't place a hex on the team.
The Raptors open their third-round series against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday.
