We were able to see some emotions out of Kawhi Leonard throughout last season's successful title run, but Clippers Media Day has brought us back to the conclusion that the 2014 and 2019 Finals MVP is indeed a robot. Just look at his facial expression while getting his photos taken.
The stoicism, the stillness, the legend that is Kawhi Leonard.
Last year gave us the Kawhi laugh, and LA's newest superstar is just a meme that keeps on giving. After stealing Klay Thompson's glory of a three-peat last year, Leonard is also taking a tip out of Thompson's "How to Pose Awkwardly" book:
Leonard looks unamused and all business as training camp kicks off. With the 2019-20 season starting later this month, the Clippers will be without Paul George until at least November as he recovers from shoulder surgery, meaning the two-time Defensive Player of the Year will be pressed to make Los Angeles a Clippers city on his own to start the year.
Can Kawhi become the first player in NBA history to win Finals MVP with three different franchises? The title race is wide open and basketball is nearly back. Keep the memes coming, Kawhi!
