A throwback to when Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard showed us he is just like the rest of us when it comes to saving
Kawhi Leonard is one of the biggest superstars in the current day NBA. The 29-year-old has reached the highest levels of success in the league, and that too with multiple franchises. After entering the league as a floor stretcher and a solid defender, Kawhi elevated his game a lot. He played a pivotal role in the 2014 Spurs championship, earning the Finals MVP honors for the same. After a few more years with the Spurs, he moved on to Toronto, wherein his one single season there, Kawhi led them to their first-ever NBA Championship.
Leonard has made a lot of money during his time in the league. However, that has not changed the morals he grew up with.
Throwback to when a lost coupon made Kawhi Leonard panic
Even though Kawhi Leonard’s speculated net worth is well over $70 million, he still is a regular human just like us. He loves a good deal when he sees it. Apart from their team salary, another way the NBA players earn is their endorsements. Back in 2015, Kawhi was with the Spurs and had signed his 5 years, $94 million contract. One of his endorsements was with Wing Stop.
Being as successful as he is, Kawhi could literally have bought any meal in the world he wanted. However, when he lost the free chicken wing coupons that came with his endorsement, he was panicked. A later Sports Illustrated feature about the same shared how Wing Stop generously replenished the Klaw’s supply of the free chicken wings.

Another frugal habit of the superstar was driving his ’97 Chevy Tahoe, Gas Guzzler. Whether he still collects food coupons or drives his old car is unknown though. However, knowing how the Klaw is, he surely would be saving up those coupons to munch on wings.
