Kawhi Leonard Delivers A Hilariously Bad Christmas Joke: "Why Does Santa Hate Going Down The Chimney? Because He's Claus-Trophobic."

Kawhi Leonard Delivers A Hilariously Bad Christmas Joke: "Why Does Santa Hate Going Down The Chimney? Because He's Claus-Trophobic."

Kawhi Leonard is unintentionally one of the NBA's funniest players. Leonard is known for his quiet demeanor, and not saying much when asked. But from time to time, Leonard will show flashes of his character and personality. And during a game near Christmas time, Leonard delivered one of the worst Christmas jokes in a funny way.

During a Clippers game, the jumbotron showed a video of Clippers players sharing bad Christmas Jokes with the audience. For the video, Leonard also recorded a video, in which he said that Santa Clause hates going down chimneys to deliver presents because he is 'claus-trophobic'.

Leonard has been one of the most hilarious personalities in the NBA for quite some time now. Perhaps the stint where he evoked the most laughter was during his time in Toronto. His first press conference there, where he called himself a fun guy and had that laugh, is still one of the most memorable moments in NBA history.

While Leonard got a lot of laughs during his time in Toronto, he was still a superstar level player there, and led the franchise to the 2019 NBA championship in his first and only season with the franchise, and was named Finals MVP for the second time in his career.

Since then, Leonard has gone on to join the LA Clippers, becoming their primary superstar, in the hopes that he can replicate his work in Toronto and win the Clippers their first NBA championship as well. In 2 seasons, Leonard has not even been able to lead the Clippers to the NBA Finals.

Last season, Leonard sustained an ACL injury during the Playoffs, but still helped his team reach the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history. The hope is that Leonard can perhaps improve on his record with the Clippers when he returns from the ACL injury before the end of this year
