Kawhi Leonard hit an iconic game winner in Game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Listen to the calls from around the world.
Thanks to players like Hakeem Olajuwon, Yao Ming, Dirk Nowitzki and Giannis Antetokounmpo, The NBA has spread across the world to become a global game.
Fans all over the world watched as Kawhi Leonard hit one of the biggest shots in NBA history. The ball floated over the arms of Joel Embiid and bounced off the rim four times. When the ball finally went in, the announcers and the crowd went crazy.
Here are the calls for Kawhi Leonard’s game seven buzzer beater in different languages from around the world.
The shot, as these reactions attest, was stunning, as Leonard somehow found space between two defenders to hit the game winner. The bucket also took him to 41 points for the night, completing what has been an outstanding series for the former San Antonio Spur.
After he missed most of last season due to injuries, there were questions this year about whether Leonard could return as one of the top five players in the NBA. He was good during the regular season, but has saved his best for the playoffs so far. There’s no question he’s one of the best players in the league.
The Raptors will now play the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals. The Bucks were the only team in the NBA to reach 60 wins this regular season, and have looked dominant in the playoffs so far behind the stellar play of MVP-candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo. His battle against Leonard is can’t-miss.
