The Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard is different from a regular superstar in the way he carries himself on and off the court. The two-time NBA champion talked about his leadership following the Clippers’ win over the Thunder.

“Like I said before, I’m not a rah-rah guy. I come out, tell my teammates what we need to do to win, see what’s happening out there on the floor without going all over the place,” Leonard said, via The Athletic.

Kawhi is averaging 25.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game in his second season in Los Angeles. The Clippers are sitting atop the Western Conference with 13 wins and 4 losses, which is the same as that of the Lakers.
