The amazing team that Kawhi Leonard supported when he was in high school


Before joining the NBA and becoming a future Hall of Famer, Kawhi Leonard was a teenager, a basketball fan like so many others. His favorite team in the second half of the 2000s? It has been revealed, and it may surprise!

In most cases, those who become professional players at the highest level are first and foremost basketball fans. Kawhi leonard is no exception to this rule, he who grew up in California, in the Los Angeles region, and who therefore had no shortage of teams to support between that of the city of angels and the rest of the state.

However, true to himself, young Klaw made a choice… different from the majority. An Internet user found a presentation of the young man during his high school years, in the second half of the 2000s. The opportunity to learn which franchise found the most thanks to the eyes of the teenager at this time:

Favorite Sports Team: Denver Nuggets

Astonishing? At first glance yes: rare are the Californian children who find themselves a mad passion for the Nuggets. When you take a closer look, however, the Denver team was then that of Carmelo Anthony, Allen Iverson, JR Smith and others – a squad that had many teenagers dreaming with its flamboyant style.

We also imagine that Melo was necessarily a model for Leonard, who already aspired to become a complete wing player, able to score and be a machine at mid-distance. It is in any case this beautiful team of the Nuggets, which certainly never passed the cap in the playoffs, which made dream The Klaw.

Where every youngster in Los Angeles dreamed of Kobe Bryant and the Lakers at his age, Kawhi Leonard only had eyes for the Nuggets. Definitely, the old Spur is not like the others.
