Kawhi Leonard is one of the greatest NBA players of all time. He is also something of a unique personality.
Because Leonard is never one to really let his emotions shine through, it makes for some very funny encounters at times.
Case in point: a recent clip between Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers mascot that has gone viral.
The video largely speaks for itself:
Lmao Kawhi Leonard left the Clippers mascot, Chuck the Condor hanging 🤣pic.twitter.com/ms5BRwUkOl

NBA Twitter never misses an opportunity to weigh in on Leonard’s somewhat robotic nature, and this incident was no exception.
The responses flowed:
He probably has no idea that’s the mascot of his team.

This isn’t the first time Leonard has blown up online for something like this. Between his memorable encounter with a couple of women sitting courtside, eyebrow-raising t-shirt choice and unforgettable childhood photos – it has been one thing after another with him.
In many ways – this most recent viral situation is just par for the course.
The photos speak for themselves. What a year for the 49ers. https://t.co/D7D9qP5Kb7

With Leonard finally healthy, expect for him to land in the headlines more and more as the season progresses.
What will he ultimately go viral for next?
Time will tell.
