Kawhi Leonard is known for his shy and quiet demeanor. In front of the cameras, he’s usually very reserved.
But during this past All-Star weekend, we saw a different side of him. “Fun guy” was officially out and it was a good time. One of the shining moments took place before the game when the Klaw let us see some of his dance moves.
Another one came after the game when Kawhi was seen shaking Ernie Johnson’s hand a little too hard.

The excitement of the game, the weekend, and winning the first-ever Kobe Bryant All-Star MVP award must have had his adrenaline pumping. and for a guy as strong as Kawhi, with such big hands, it probably stung E.J. a little when they shook hands after the game.
For Kawhi, it’s just one of a number of interesting and awkward public interactions. When he opens up, Leonard can be a pretty entertaining dude.
This season, he is averaging 27 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 5.3 assists per game on 46% shooting. As he attempts to lead the Clippers to a Championship win, expect him to continue dominating at the highest level.
