Kawhi Leonard has a bit of a history when it comes to sitting out basketball games. So when fans saw Kawhi was mysteriously absent in the Raptors’ game against the Bulls on Saturday, they were nervous, to say the least.
It was later revealed that Leonard was not, in fact, pulling some kind of stunt, but was actually with his wife as they welcomed their second child into the world!
The gender and name of the child have yet to be revealed, but we will likely get an update in Monday night’s match against Orlando, which he is listed as active for. Kawhi and Kishele first became parents in the summer of 2016, with the birth of their daughter Kaliyah.
As Kawhi and his family pass another milestone, many are wondering what might come next in basketball terms for the Toronto star.
As the Raptors close their best season in years, they are poised to make a serious playoff run. Still, nobody knows where Kawhi’s heart lies, and he could very well be on the move again as he hits free agency this summer.
