Kawhi Leonard’s strength has been the stuff of legends since he entered the league in 2011. His force on full display in game 3 of the 2020 NBA Playoffs against the Denver Nuggets. Jamal Murray went for a poster slam on the Klaw but got absolutely denied at the rim. Jamal actually had the upper hand in the air, but Leonard asserted his power by finishing the block with just his middle finger, forcing Jamal to get rim checked.
The sneaker Leonard wore during this block was the New Balance The KAWHI. Not much is known at this time on the sneaker, but keep it locked to the site for more info on the technology.
The New Balance The KAWHI will release in the fall.
