We know he said this thanks yesterday via Twitter, but here's his official thank you to the fans of Toronto.

I just want to thank you guys for one of the best experiences of my life.

For 7 years now, you've watched and help me grow from an ambitious rookie to the man I am today.

As a diehard sports fan, I know what it's like when a familiar face decides to leave and so I understand your disappointment. But know that this was my toughest decision, mostly because Toronto has been so great to me. I've loved every minute here and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to the Raptors, Bryan Colangelo, Larry Tanenbaum, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada and all the fans.

To a world-class city and its world-class fans, thank you.
