The iconic Kawhi Leonard is incredible. Even though he is out injured because of an ACL injury, his sense of humor keeps him relevant. The Los Angeles Clippers have announced that they will move onto a new arena named Intuit Dome. Caught by the cameras was an uninterested Leonard, bored to death. However, the key takeaway from that event was the hoodie that he wore. Just like his personality, it was nothing short of iconic.

The white hoodie Kawhi wore to the ceremony had the wordings ‘Clip Gang Or Don’t Bang’ on the front. However, the greatness of that hoodie was at the back.

During the playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks, Leonard put Maxi Kleber on a poster. After that move, he along with his teammates Paul George and Marcus Morris flexed in front of Kleber.

And Leonard put that poster on the back of his hoodie! A subtle touch of creativity as Kawhi dug deep into his creative side and came up with this brilliance.

The small forward missed the rest of the playoffs games after he injured his ACL. Thus, this brings a lighter moment to his road to recovery.
