NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard will take the floor at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on Monday night with a chance to win the city’s first-ever NBA championship with a win over the Golden State Warriors.
And though the 27-year-old Leonard signed a five-year $94 million deal in 2015, made a salary of over $23 million this past season and is on the verge of free agency where he’ll certainly demand a new contract that dwarfs his last, Leonard has managed to remain one of the world’s most down-to-earth star athletes.

Wednesday’s Sports Digest: NFL committee to decide whether to tweak interference rule
NFL owners gave the competition committee the go-ahead Wednesday to decide whether to refine the new rule allowing replay challenges involving pass interference.
The proposed tweak would take the decision on whether to review in the final two minutes of each half out of the hands of the officials. Reviews in the final two minutes would instead require a coach’s challenge.
Owners voted to hold the NFL draft in Cleveland in 2021, the 75th anniversary of the Browns, and in Kansas City in 2023. The league said it delayed choosing a site for 2022 because about 20 cities are interested in hosting that year.

Magic fall behind 3-1 in series to Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors
Kawhi Leonard is proving to be a bit too much for the Orlando Magic as they drop to 3-1 in their first NBA Playoff series in seven years.
The Magic took one game in Toronto but was unable to bring their home crowd a win in Orlando. After the Raptors 107-85 win on Sunday, the series moves back up to Toronto.
The Magic kept it close in the first quarter only trailing by 2. The Raptors forced 6 turnovers just in the first quarter. The Raptors would finish the game forcing the Magic to turn it over 17 times.
Kawhi Leonard started leading his team early on the offensive end sinking 10 of his first 15 shot attempts. Aaron Gordon played phenomenal on Sunday leading his team in points with 25, rebounds with 7 and assists with 5. He also had the task of stopping the dominating Leonard on offense, but his defensive efforts were not enough to stop him. Leonard finished the game with 34 points.
