As Kawhi Leonard has grown more comfortable with his teammates, he’s taken on more of a vocal leadership role within the locker room, including coordinating the team’s players-only film sessions that multiple players and coaches have cited as the key to their recent turnaround after a rocky start to 2020, according to sources.
Leonard is arguably the quietest superstar in NBA history. The three-time All-Star, two-time Defensive Player of the Year and two-time Finals MVP just wants to play basketball and win as much as possible. He doesn’t care about the fame or media hoopla which comes with being a global star.
However, when he’s off the court, the Clippers star likes to go fishing, golfing and hang out with his kids. Leonard does talk in the huddle and locker room. He just doesn’t do much of that with the media.
Leonard has appeared in 34 games this season for the Clippers. He’s averaging 27.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 5.0 assists while shooting 46.6 percent from the field, 35.5 percent from beyond the arc and 88.8 percent from the free-throw line.
The Clippers are 31-14 on the season. They are in third place in the West.
