Kawhi Leonard’s custom face mask is absolutely incredible
Kawhi Leonard sat out Saturday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, but he still attracted attention for what he was wearing.
The Los Angeles Clippers opted against playing Leonard Saturday in the first game of a back-to-back, citing injury management as the reason. That meant Leonard watched the game from the bench — with one of the strangest face masks anyone will ever see.

That looks like a telephone cord holding the mask in place, but it’s actually shoelace type of material, because the masks are made by Leonard’s sponsor, New Balance.
Leonard has always been willing to capitalize on his rather unique personality and sense of style, and that extends to his mask.
