Apparently, the internet was taken for a ride yesterday by a Photoshop artist with an evil sense of humor, and rumors of the end of Kawhi Leonard’s braids was drastically exaggerated — read: faked.
Just received a call from people close to Kawhi...told me this photo is fake. So there's that. His braids are still intact. #Spurs #NBA pic.twitter.com/m3ARHr5TVK— Jabari Young (@JabariJYoung) June 21, 2017
Jabari Young, who covers the Spurs for the Express-News, has put the lie to “Braid-gate” restoring status quo for countless fans.
Someone did take a photo of Kawhi at this gym and decided to alter the pic. But again, he HAS NOT cut his hair. So Braid-Gate is over #Spurs— Jabari Young (@JabariJYoung) June 21, 2017
