Kawhi Leonard has always been known for his aggressive defense, but he was in his offensive bag late in the 4th of a Spurs vs. Pacers game in 2017.
The ball was inbounded to Kawhi in the left corner with his Spurs down 1 with 8 seconds remaining. A dribble fake kept the defending Paul George honest before Leonard initiated a post-up. After two back down dribbles, Kawhi large hand collected the ball before the Klaw faded away right on the extending PG. Swish.
The sneakers Kawhi rocked for this game was the Air Jordan XXXI. This 31st sneaker in the line took elements from the Air Jordan 1, with heel panels mimicking the original Air Jordan sneaker. The midfoot and toe featured a soft Flyweave material that proved durable as well. Full-length Zoom Air and a FlightSpeed plate provided maximum bounce no matter where your foot lands.
