Kawhi Leonard has made a name for himself around the league thanks to a couple of things. On one hand, he’s one of the best two-way players ever, but outside the court, he’s a man of few words, to say the least.
The internet has been flooded with thousands of memes and clips of Leonard’s unexpressive personality, as he’s shown little-to-none excitement about, well, anything.
That’s why the world was so shocked when he showed his awkward laugh during his presentation with the Toronto Raptors a year ago, something that’s not likely to be seen or heard again any time soon.
And now that Leonard got some incredible custom kicks for the season opener and his official debut with the Los Angeles Clippers, the reigning Finals MVP showed his ice-cold personality once again.
Leonard got a brand new pair of custom-made shoes and he barely even blinked, just saying “oh yeah, this is dope”, and putting them right back in the box.
At least, his season got off to a terrific start after beating LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers 112-102, scoring 30 points to go along with 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals and 1 block in 32 minutes.
Leonard will have the opportunity to prove he’s the best player in the world right now by leading the Clippers to their first NBA Finals appearance in franchise history, so he must be locked in entirely in basketball right now.
Now, his Clippers will travel to San Francisco to face Stephen Curry and the new-look Golden State Warriors and keep the momentum going to prove they’re the team to beat in the Western Conference even with Paul George healing a shoulder injury.
Obviously, Leonard has more important things in mind right now that just some custom-made sneakers, but come on man, they were pretty dope.
