Leonard received his championship ring to deafening applause and chants of "MVP! MVP!" before the Los Angeles Clippers visited the Raptors on Wednesday night.
Earlier, the three-time All-Star and two-time NBA Finals MVP said he was expecting a mix of cheers and boos from Toronto fans who watched him lead the Raptors to a six-game victory over Golden State in June.
