Kawhi shows his skills as a pitchman in his first solo commercial

Usually reserved, Kawhi speaks at length in his BBVA spot.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

During last week's Lakers game, Spurs fans shared a moment of collective awe as Kawhi Leonard starred in his first solo commercial.

In the spot, you hear Leonard say "you gotta step outside the box and see what you can do and taking risks is how you learn." This pretty much sums up the basis for the BBVA commercial.

Not too shabby, and he seems pretty genuine. Granted, Leonard will never stand accused of being loquacious, but I can see him doing more classy bits like this. On the other hand, I doubt you'll ever catch him in something as whacky as Boban's terrible debut earlier this month.

What do you guys think of his effort?
