Kawhi Leonard’s strength is the stuff of legends, and all of that was on full-display on this massive highlight from the Klaw.
Leonard received the ball at the top of the key with his teammates fanned out for the isolation. A simple right-to-left hard dribble saw him easily blow by Jazz defender Royce O’Neal with a lot of space to the rim. Kawhi shockingly rose from the middle of the key, with Derrick Favors still timing his jump perfectly to meet Leonard. The hops and pure strength from Kawhi was too much though, as he easily rose above the Utah Jazz center. The ball dropped through the hoop with a big thud, as Leonard put all of his power into the hard dunk. Smile Favors, you’re on the Kawhi-light reel.
The sneakers that Leonard rocked in this game was the New Balance The KAWHI signature shoe, which you can find at StockX.
