The Toronto Raptors have been pushing Kawhi Leonard for the All-Star Game since 2018. The angle the team has decided to take is with Leonard being a “man of action” as opposed to a man of words.
Teams come up with some pretty good ideas about how to promote their star players for the All-Star Game. The Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum did the Vote for Pedro dance from “Napoleon Dynamite” to ask people to vote for buddy Damian Lillard.
The Raptors took a shot at a viral video of their own this week by releasing a fake 1990s-style action figure commercial for Leonard.
The result was pretty good:
At least with a Kawhi Leonard action figure you wouldn’t need to have a speaker and a button that plays catch phrases on it.
