As many Canadians, Raptors fans, and basketball fans in general have learned this season, Kawhi Leonard is a man of few words. Leonard loves playing basketball, but that passion for the game is expressed more in actions than words on and off the court.
That doesn't, however, mean that Leonard stays silent on the court while he's putting MVP candidates like Giannis Antetokounmpo on posters and locking down others on defence. In a recent article in The Athletic by Jayson Jenks, Leonard's former college teammates and coaches at San Diego State revealed some of the things he would say on the court during a game.
"BOARD MAN GETS PAID" MIGHT BE THE SINGLE GREATEST PHRASE IN SPORTS HISTORY AND NEEDS TO BE ON EVERY SINGLE T-SHIRT AND BILLBOARD.
Someone needs to get Kawhi mic'd up ASAP because if he's still tossing out lines like this each and every game, it's a crime we haven't been able to hear him say them.
