This is quite possibly the dumbest news report I’ve seen since it’s hot out when it’s summer. That, perhaps not coincidentally I’m starting to think, was also a CTV production. Yorkville resident says he may have seen Kawhi Leonard
Pierre-James Murphy stood across from his apartment in Yorkville, staring at the crowd that had gathered near the Hazelton Hotel.
Murphy heard that Kawhi Leonard may be meeting with the Raptors inside and decided to go upstairs to his 22nd floor apartment. When he got inside, he looked down and saw a very tall man standing on a balcony five floors above street level.
“I think it was him but I can’t say that for sure,” he said. “He was looking down at everybody, and not one person was looking up.”
Murphy decided to grab his cell phone camera and record what was happening.
In the balcony video, Murphy says: “Look, that’s Kawhi right there. He’s in the grey shirt. There’s a balcony in the hotel and he’s looking down.”
There is no way to be sure who the person in the video is. Like much of the day Wednesday, it is shrouded in mystery.
I don’t care much for basketball, but as both a fan of other sports and a human being, you’re getting creepy, Toronto. If this is truly where we’re at with this, were I Kawhi Leonard I’d sign with a team as far away as I could and then get a restraining order against the entire country of Canada to keep all of you from touching me inappropriately.
And Jesus Christ, CTV. There’s no such thing as a news day this slow. Have a little professional pride, for ghod’s sake.
