Kawhi Leonard Smiles While Dunking in 1st All-Star Game in the Air Jordan XXX Shoes

Very rarely do you see any emotion from the even-keeled Kawhi Leonard. This rare occurrence was on full display for the 2016 All-Star game though, as Leonard displayed his pearly whites.

This was Leonard’s first All-Star appearance, which is wild considering he had won Finals MVP before this achievement. Naturally, Kawhi brought the energy with steals and emphatic rebounds with the use of his extra large hands. At the 39 second point of the video above, you can see Kawhi soar past Carmelo Anthony for a jam. What isn’t shown though is the large smile Leonard wore while dunking, with the photo going viral on basketball Twitter:

The sneaker the Klaw wore in this moment was the Air Jordan XXX. This style used elements from it’s predecessors (the XX8 and XX9) including the Zoom Air and FlightSpeed plate that provided a bouncy feel in the forefoot. The upper also featured a jacquard/knit, which was soft but still durable enough to withstand the rigors of the game.
