Some people keep an even keel, regardless of the situation. It’s in their nature. It takes something truly extraordinary to get any sort of reaction out of them.
You’d think winning the Defensive Player of the Year award for the second straight season would be one of these special moments where the emotions come out. That is, unless you’re a cyborg, like Kawhi Leonard.
A proud San Antonio Spurs general manager R.C. Buford introduced Leonard before his press conference to accept the award, and not one ounce of excitement was seen.

We get it, Kawhi Leonard’s sole focus is on winning the NBA title. We also get that he’s not actually a human.
All kidding aside, beneath his emotionless exterior, Leonard has a huge heart and is a very giving man.
As the DPOY winner, Kawhi donated his new Kia Sorento to the Children’s Bereavement Center of South Texas. Just don’t expect him to smile for the picture.
