The prank was apparently set up by YouTuber BigDawsTV.
Following the Toronto Raptors‘ win against the Golden State Warriors, the team celebrated with a championship parade where countless fans were in attendance — including a Kawhi Leonard lookalike.
In a video captured by blogTO, the Leonard impersonator can be seen signing Raptors hats and taking pictures with fans.

“What people don’t know is I set up the entire Fake Kawhi Leonard prank today in Toronto. New video up tomorrow on Daily Dropout,” he tweeted.
The real Leonard, however, was present at the parade. He was seen on a float smoking a cigar while wearing a “Board Man Gets Paid” t-shirt.
Drake was also present at the parade and seen alongside Leonard.

Drake celebrated Toronto’s first NBA championship win with a pair of new singles. His The Best in The World Pack features the haunting and hook-less “Omertà,” which appears to address lingering insecurity over how he faired in a very public beef with Pusha T. Last year, the Clipse rapper outed Drake as a father on the scathing diss track, “The Story of Adidon.” The pack’s second track, “Money in The Grave,” features a quick guest verse from Rick Ross.
