With D-Wade’s final home game tonight, Kawhi Leonard reminds us of something

Kawhi Leonard’s Raptors bested Miami on Sunday, but Leonard did show respect to the Heat’s franchise. Leonard says that the Miami Heat’s 2013 team was the greatest team he ever faced.

Going against future Hall of Famers Lebron James and Dwayne Wade in 2013 made Leonard a better player, telling the Canadian Press “being that young and having to guard James and Wade got me where I am today.”

It’s a good thing to remember how great those teams were, especially on a day like today, where the greatest south Florida athlete of all time will play his final regular season game at home.

Hopefully, there will be a postseason game or two still yet to play…
