Warriors’ Draymond Green says you’re not going to ‘rattle’ Raptors’ Kawhi Leonard
Leonard is as stoic as they come. He has the same facial expression and body language throughout all four quarters of a game and seemingly doesn’t let anything bother him on the court.
The Raptors as a team have gravitated toward Leonard and his even-keeled demeanor. After winning Games 3 and 4 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena, the players weren’t smiling or celebrating because they know they still have to win one more game to close out the series.
Draymond: "I don't think you're ever going to rattle Kawhi."

Leonard, unlike Green, doesn’t wear his emotions on his sleeve. The Raptors swingman is arguably the quietest superstar in NBA history. Leonard doesn’t trash talk, complain to referees or show any sign of weakness to his opponent.
Leonard is everything you want your superstar to be. He doesn’t care about the fame or money and just wants to hoop and provide for his family. The three-time All-Star and two-time Defensive Player of the Year prefers to stay under the radar and isn’t on social media.
More importantly, Leonard doesn’t put his Raptors teammates under the bus. He checks all the boxes of what you want your franchise player to be.
