  • Please check-out Game of Zones S4:E2 @ 2:35 this laugh is exact duplicate of animation!!

  • I love you😘Leonard...

  • You work with your body. I work with my mind.. We cannot be compared until you find a bridge that crosses this gap. Do bridges end war's? cross. Redesign the dynamics of the game by changing it's infrastructure. Any idea's? Brain vrs braun and dominance. Know character trait's for a good bet. Peace.

  • No lie if kawhi was a superhero he would be groot or drax

  • Kawhi is such a low key superstar. He doesn't care if he is considered the "best player" on the planet. This is the kind of discussion the US media/sports commentators love to argue about (Max and Stephen, Skip and Shannon, etc). Shannon loves Kawhi but Skip can't stand "the number 2" guy. Who cares??? As long as Kawhi and the Raptors are winning, that's it all matters. Canada will gladly take "the number 2" guy any time of the day. :-)

  • I'm a GSW fan. I'm rooting for them regardless. That said, if they lose this year, Raptors are the team that makes me least upset. Love Kawhi. Wish more players had his disposition or close to it. Go GSW! But if all else fails, sincere congrats to Raptors. It would be a well deserved and overdue win.

  • the best player in the world ...kawhi my idol...the humble one💪💪

  • He's like John Wick of the NBA.

  • Kwahi a words of a champion..

  • The way Lowry called Kwahi at the end like a puppy haha

  • I know this nigga smokes weed...

  • 4:24 thanks me later

  • That’s how you know he’s a real one with that comment 💯💙🇨🇦

  • Let bygones be bygones . Go Raptors go.

  • where Drake at?

  • The fake sports news media have all but given the title to the raptors.....yeah right! give me a break!!

  • "Come on Kawhi!" lmao

  • THAT'S why Queen James is overrated, folks! Thank you for being YOU, Kawhi. Now go get your team that long-overdue championship from those worn-down Warriors! They don't have dirty-ass Zaza Pachulia to knock you out of the series anymore:::wink:::wink:::

  • "We kept running into this guy, good thing he left and gave us a chance" LeBron is the GOAT !

  • I’m a fun guy.

  • Nice 😀😀😀


  • Turn up Kawhi's Mic he's 2 quiet

  • 2019 nba champions toronto raptors promise! remember what lebron say in 2016 nba finals:-)

  • a man in focus, the most secret weapon of an athlete

  • They need to get some compression on Kawhi's knees, been saying this

  • Congrats to Kawhi for bringing Toronto to the Finals, but I’m more happy for Gasol, Lin, Serge (again), Lowry and Meeks for getting to the summit. If Raps bring it home like I think they could I’ll shed tears for those guys lol

  • He reminds me of Tim for some reason 🤔

  • Any one that thinks that the Raptors can beat GS and win the championship is dumber than a bag of rock and in a world of hurt! You better wake your ass up! GS in six

  • DeRozen somewhere punchin the air right now. 😤👊🏾


  • Lebron: well I’m the best player in the world it’s that simple Kawhi: I don’t care about being the best I just want to win.

  • This is a great fit for kawhi, I really feel like he'll wind up resigning with the raptors

  • They just made the finals real easy on the warriors .

  • See because he is humble and dark skin he not going get the same hype as curry gets

  • Thank You!!!!!!!


  • Lebron James: I don’t care about winning I just wanna be the best player in the world...

  • Win or lose in the Finals, I think Toronto is perfect place for Klaw, Raptors must give him max contract and add players that suits Kawhi the best

  • When you care about your team you can do great things together!! #respect Kawhi

  • 💯💯💯Jordan would not have them rings without all the other players from the team

  • Lebron made this all possible!! That’s the true answer you heard Lowry that’s a real response much respect for being honest that takes a lot💪🏾

  • With all this Beat Player talk, I don’t wanna hear KD vs Kawhi... Kawhi been with Raptors ONE Season & took them to Finals when they never been there. KD joined the Warriors for this type of Limelight. Kawhi shouldn’t be compared to Nobody but Lebron & MJ as far as Greatness goes.. all these Free Agents that wanna Team up together are tryna do EXACTLY WHAT KAWHI JUST DID!!

  • Kawhi Leonard team player Unlike LeBum james

  • Raptors in 7 💯✊🏾

  • The right attitude, I just wanna win I don't care about being the best player. Put them egos aside you will be successful

  • ESPN trending again

  • Yo LeBroom, how's that for a narrative. Kawhi is a true underrated Top five player.

    • @Robb Udo nah, LeBroom first season in the western conference = no playoffs, don't forget that. LeBroom in general = 6 L's that will follow him to his grave. 😂🤣😭💀😇

    • No Lebron in East =finals don’t forget that😂😂

  • Reporter from the Times always asks good questions.

  • Leonard’s posture is shit

  • Come on kawhi🤣😂🤣😭😭

  • Kawhi you are humble. Thanks for carrying my man JLin and the rest of the team on your back. Please get that ring for everybody!

  • Kawhi put ere acting like John snow🤣😂🤣😭😭 king of the north!!! Kawhi: nah

  • No, i don’t want that Give me the raaas

  • Someone had to say it

  • These people have no public speaking ability their voices put me to sleep. Seriously this press conference is I need to have questions asked with a little more earnestly from the gallery and with a little more enthusiasm from the players or we will continue to give less and less of a shit.

  • That’s what make kawhi the best player in the game he stay humble and he takes the height percentage shots not just jacking shots


  • Lol at the end “Come on kawhi !”

  • If you want to win, maybe you shouldn't have backstabbed the Spurs you fucking chickenshit snake.

  • You people are ridiculous it's so funny how quick you all are to try to bash LeBron. Take Kawhis dick out your mouth I can't understand you. Let's enjoy Kawhi and not make it into something it's not.

  • 👏👏👏👏👏This man here, is a good example on what the NBA should be. No drama, humble and his appreciation towards the game is highly respectable. Unlikely others who feed on the drama instead of the game.🙏

  • Greatest Rental of All Time, he da GRAT!

  • kawhi got home from that game and flailed his arms like a girl woooo my fucking team showed up tonight

  • difference between kawhi and jordan, one will trash talk his opponents and crush them offensively and the other will crush your soul and mind with silence and crush em offensively

  • I’m rooting for Kawhi & the Raptors to win it all. We’re witnessing history right now & I’m loving it

  • Demar Derozen : you got lucky, I am better than you Kawahi: This is my world we just live in it

  • Very humble guy Warriors in 4

  • iKawhi Leonard

  • Just win and while you doing it shut up Skip Bayless hating ass. If you can't say it I will say it for you just be quiet and watch him win Skip if he don't win at least he get there. Where your Spurs at fishing or riding that long ass boat back to San Antonio.

  • "I can't be nothing but happy for the Toronto raptors. About time" 😊

  • KD’s motto

  • Goat

  • it’s so refreshing to see a humble NBA player. You are the best Kawhi, never change. Go get it.

  • looc er’ruoy siht daer nac uoy fI

  • How many times did kawhi say 'u know'


  • People say lowry is overrated but they don’t realize how much he does for his team

  • Powell. Rather be the best player then win

  • Lowry takes your hands off that trophy. You don’t deserve to touch it bum.

  • Love 💗

  • #Respect to Kawhi ✊🏿(Timestamp 4:30 )

  • Fuck the media..

  • It's between clippers or raptors where he will sign.

  • Sleeping giant !! Amazing what he has done in his first year in Toronto .!

  • A new star is born.

    • @ualreadyknow210 Yeah, but I mean now hes a superstar.

    • Melchior AO He been a star foh

  • "I don't care about winning. I just want to be the best player."- Russell Westbrook

  • The Spurs will forever be remembered as jack asses for how they treated this dude. Props to Kawai for taking the high road while they tried to shit on his character.
