San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard has rocked braids for as far back as middle school. But, after six years in the league, it appears he’s ready for a change.
The NBA All-Star shocked fans this week, when he appeared online sans his signature braids.
Kawhi popped up in an photo shared on social media by the Comedy Central show, Legends of Chamberlain Heights, posing after a workout… and its the first time we’ve seen him with this new ‘do.
