Kawhi Leonard is a man of few words. And then sometimes, he’s a man of very, very few words.

The 28-year-old made headlines on Wednesday night after sticking Celtics power forward Daniel Theis on a poster with an early dunk of the year candidate. Following the Clippers’ thrilling 107-104 victory, Kawhi fielded questions from the media and when asked about the dunk, he responded in basically the bluntest way you can think of. It stirred some laughs but a smile couldn’t even be seen on Kawhi’s face…


“What do you want me to say? Patrick threw me the ball, I took two dribbles into the paint and tried to jump high and dunk the basketball.” You don’t say Klaw! Here’s a look at the dunk in case you missed it:

Speaking of not smiling… Kawhi didn’t even crack after making a game-saving block as time expired in overtime. All he needed to celebrate the victory was one single clap.


Listen, we all know Kawhi is a ‘Fun Guy’ but it still is totally possible that he’s part robot…
