After an offseason full of smiles and laughter, the real Kawhi Leonard has returned to us. We can now resume to scrolling through Twitter after a game to see if someone captured the rare glimpse of a genuine Kawhi smile.
We witnessed Kawhi’s return to normality in a picture posted by Desean Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Receiver, on Instagram.
In the photo we see the rapper YG, Jackson, Leonard, and Kendrick Lamar (plus an as-yet-unidentified man in sunglasses) and all of them appear to be as uninterested in smiling for the camera as our favorite MVP candidate.
And there’s something else: the fact that he is wearing jeans. To my knowledge, this is the first time in the 2017 NBA offseason that Leonard has been pictured wearing something other than gym shorts or warmup-type bottoms. To go with his denim, Kawhi chose to go with an all-gold pair of the Jordan V’s.
It’s great to see that Kawhi is enjoying the last part of the offseason before he goes back to grinding it out in San Antonio with some fresh faces.
I leave you with the well known Kawhi “smile.”
