Kawhi Leonard was photographed partying it up at his ex-San Antonio Spurs teammate’s wedding this past week. His outfit choice to the event caused something of a stir.
Cory Joseph, who is currently a point guard for the Golden State Warriors, played for the Spurs from 2011 to 2015. During that time, his stint with the organization coincided with Leonard’s. The latter played in San Antonio from 2011 to 2018.
The pair has remained close since.
This week, Leonard and Joseph partied it up. The photos from their escapades hit the web on Friday, to much critical acclaim.

The hoops community is a vocal one, so understandably reactions poured in immediately.
Folks took to social media to offer their takes — specifically on what Leonard wore.
1. Why is Cory smiling like that?
2. Why is Kawhi just wearing a t-shirt and jacket to a wedding?

Big picture, this isn’t the first time in recent weeks Leonard has blown up online for showing off his ‘fun’ side. Between his wild birthday boat party and him clubbing with rapper Rick Ross, the Los Angeles Clippers star has had a busy summer.
The question now is what the future holds for him basketball-wise.
To say that Leonard’s time with the Clippers has been disappointing would be a massive understatement.
What a summer for HVL. https://t.co/bGevJUbo20

When he arrived in L.A., Leonard was supposed to bring championships. He hasn’t done that.
The Clippers haven’t even made the Western Conference Finals on his watch.
Will Leonard be able to rectify that in the 2023-24 NBA season? Time will tell.
