Kawhi Leonard Hilariously Tries To Avoid Human Interaction (Video)
Kawhi Leonard is one of the most unintentionally hilarious players in the NBA. People have slowly been warming up to this fact over the past couple of years, but it was on full display this week.
On Monday night, the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks were set to play the first game of their first round NBA Playoff series.
Leonard arrived at the arena early in preparation of the outing, but nobody approached him or tried talking to him because he was staring intently at his tablet. However, when an overhead view of his tablet was shown, it showed just a homescreen.
Surely enough, as soon as he was out of public view, Leonard immediately lowered the tablet and kept on walking.
He had very clearly and intentionally used it to avoid having to talk to anyone on his way through the arena.

Kawhi Leonard, Clippers Steal Game 1 Win Over Mavs
Leonard’s extremely relatable anti-social behavior was the quirky side story from Monday night, but the main headline was his Clippers emerging with a 118-110 victory to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
Dallas played a great game. If ever there was an outing for the Mavericks to steal, this was it. However, a flukey Kristaps Porzingis ejection ultimately derailed what was a very strong showing by the No. 7 seed.
Leonard finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds and six assists in the victory. Paul George chipped in 27 points as well.
The Clippers and Mavericks will face off for Game 2 of their series on Wednesday.
