Video: Kawhi Leonard jokingly calls teammate ‘stupid’
Since being traded to the Raptors, Leonard has been caught laughing on multiple occasions. From his ground breaking introductory press conference that people can’t seem to forget to several group photos with Raptors coaches and teammates, it seems that this is the first time that Leonard has actually been enjoying his time in the NBA.
Here, we see another video of the All-Star forward joking around and laughing with his teammates.

After surviving a scare from the Washington Wizards, Leonard faced the reporters postgame to give some comments on the team’s 140-138 win. Then, an unidentified teammate briefly spoke to Leonard off-camera to make fun of his jacket, which the teammate apparently thought was from Burberry. Kawhi responded with “You stupid, this ain’t Burberry. This is New Balance.”
Then there’s a glimpse of that signature laugh.
There are a lot of reasons for Kawhi to be happy in Toronto. His team has the best record in the league, he recently signed a sneaker deal with New Balance, he seems to have patched things up with Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, and he’s expected to get supermax contract offers from several NBA teams this summer. Everything seems to be going right for Leonard’s career right now.
What more could he ask for?
