Any time Kawhi Leonard shows emotion is a shining moment, but a specific instance in 2013 came with a game-winner.
With Leonard’s San Antonio Spurs down 93-95 with less than 10 seconds remaining, Tony Parker slashed through the Cavs defense to pass to a wide-open Kawhi. The Klaw quickly gathered and rose up, unafraid of the moment as a second-year player. After the swish, Leonard bounced up before heading to the bench to high-five teammates.
The sneaker Leonard rocked for this early highlight was the Nike Air Flight One. This shoe notably was worn by Penny Hardaway and was one of the few non-Jordan sneakers worn by Michael himself.
The black and white colorway he wore for this game-winner can be found at StockX.
