Milwaukee Bucks fans weren’t content just watching their team beat the Toronto Raptors on Friday night. They decided to mess with the Raptors’ best player while they were at it.
During the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, Bucks fans trolled Kawhi Leonard by chanting “future Clipper” at him.

The Raptors traded for Leonard last offseason even though they knew he was likely to opt out of his contract after this season and become a free agent. The Clippers have long been viewed as a potential preferred destination for the three-time All-Star, so that’s the basis of the troll job by Bucks fans.
Leonard already has a huge moment with the Raptors this postseason that might make it difficult for him to leave. He also is probably focused on trying to take the Raptors as far as possible in the playoffs before worrying about which team he’ll play for next, regardless of the fan jokes.
