Kawhi Leonard shocked us all when he admitted something we rarely see athletes ever take ownership too… being smart and low key with his money. Leonard has a well-earned reputation for being frugal. His standard attire is a hooded sweat shirt. According to the Sports Illustrated story, Leonard, after signing a $94 million contract took affect, was annoyed that he’d lost his coupons from Wing Stop, for which he has an endorsement deal. Kawhi even has something in common with struggling college students : A rehabbed 1997 Chevy Tahoe nicknamed “Gas Guzzler that he still drives to this day.
Leonard was Most Valuable of the NBA Finals in 2014, the league’s defensive player of the year in 2015 and this season is a mainstay on a team everyone would be talking about if it wasn’t for the Warriors. After being out 3 games this series it looks like the warriors will yet again put Kawhi’s incredible post season play in the shadows.
