The world knows Kawhi Leonard as a no-talk, only work guy. His personality portrayed by the media depicts him as a quiet individual.
Leonard’s Los Angeles Clippers teammate Lou Williams joined ESPN’s Ros Gold-Onwude in a video chat recently.
Williams was asked about Kawhi’s contribution to the team’s group chat during this quarantine, for which he gave an answer which is the complete opposite of what people thought Leonard was like.
Kawhi Leonard talks the most on the Clippers’ group chat
When the host enquired Williams about Kawhi’s interaction with his teammates, the 33-year-old quickly touched on the fact that Leonard is the most active person on their group chat.
“You know Kawhi talks the most in our group chat, believe it or not,” he said. He also mentioned Leonard’s contribution to the team as a leader.
Williams labeled Kawhi as a very talkative person. He further stated that he believes Leonard is trolling the media with his quiet persona.

“I don’t know where he got pegged as this guy that doesn’t talk or whatever,” Williams said. “I think he’s trolling a little bit when he does that. The dude is a leader.”
Kawhi has no dedicated social media account, but according to Williams, he is very much aware of his public image and intends to maintain it.
Kawhi Leonard is apparently very active on the Clippers’ group chat, and posts his workout routine as well. Recently, Williams even engaged in conversation about their families and fitness.
There is one side of Kawhi Leonard we all see on the court and the other which we never get to see. From what Williams said, we can assume that his “hilarious” side is reserved for his close friends and his teammates.
Leonard and the Clippers in the 2019-20 NBA season
The LA Clippers are right up there as one among the favorites to win the NBA championship this season.
Charged by Kawhi Leonard’s leadership, the Clippers currently stand second in the Western Conference table. The team above them are local rivals, LA Lakers.
The Clippers stand close to championship glory, looking at the mighty talent they possess. However, the league has been on a standstill since March 11 and the players are hoping to get back to action soon.
Williams believes his team was treading on the right path with just 18 games remaining for them in the regular season.
