Kawhi Leonard rejects Jamal Murray with authority at the rim, with just his middle finger and fans couldn’t get enough of it.
Kawhi Leonard made a name for himself in this league early on, as an on ball defensive mastermind. He has always been one of the NBA’s premier defenders, dating all the way back to his NBA Finals performance against the Miami Heat in 2014.
He played incredible defense on LeBron James throughout the series, earning him the honour of Finals MVP.

For people who think Kawhi Leonard has been slacking on defense, he proved them all wrong in just one play. Jamal Murray was driving hard to the rim when Leonard rose up and rejected his shot out of bounds.

At further inspection, it can be seen that the 2x Finals MVP blocked the shot with just one finger; his middle finger. It’s almost hard to believe that Kawhi pulled this off but then you remember Kawhi’s hands span to almost inches wide.
