Kawhi Leonard is famously known for being somewhat unemotional. Even though the 29-year-old has offered certain glimpses into his personality over the years, by and large he is recognized for being stoic and kind of indifferent to the irrelevant things happening around him.
Whereas other players often get angry, or upset, or happy – Leonard always just seems to stay at the exact same temperature.
This week, the Los Angeles Clippers released a video and photo package showing off their new City Edition jerseys. Within it they included Leonard’s reaction to seeing the uniforms in question for the first time.
It was exactly what people would expect.

“I mean, it’s alright,” Leonard can be heard saying, before cracking a smile and offering his full support.
Reactions to the new uniforms were mixed.

Imagine saying La our way. While blowing a 3-1 lead in the second round. Then watching your cross town rivals win a ring.

His reaction better than mine. I would have had a confused look and said “didn’t we wear these last year?”

This is shaping up to be a very interesting year for the Clippers. Currently, most sports books have them just behind the Los Angeles Lakers as far as 2021 NBA Title odds.
Will they be able to wash away last year’s disappointment and help Leonard win his fourth career championship?
Time will tell.
