Kawhi Leonard bringing back his famous laugh after winning championship
Kawhi Leonard finally seemed to let loose after the Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors to win their first championship in franchise history on Thursday night, and that means we may even catch some glimpses of his famous laugh.
Not long after the Raptors won Game 6, Leonard and Kyle Lowry sat down for an interview with ESPN’s Rachel Nichols. They were naturally in a good mood, and Kawhi’s uber-popular laugh made an appearance.

It happened again when Leonard joked that Lowry probably doesn’t want him back in Toronto next season.

As most of you know, Leonard’s robotic laugh became one of the best memes in internet history when he cracked a joke during his introductory press conference with the Raptors. Klay Thompson appeared to impersonate the chuckle during the Finals, and he certainly isn’t the only one who has done that.
Leonard has a reputation for being a boring guy because he is so focused and often shows little enthusiasm during interviews, but he had plenty of fun after the Raptors won it all. Being able to save the partying for the right moments is probably a big part of what makes him such a great player.
