Kawhi Leonard had unintentionally funny postgame interview
First Kawhi Leonard impressed fans with a stellar performance in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. Then he amused us with his unintentionally funny postgame interview with TNT’s Kristen Ledlow.
The Toronto Raptors star gave some very literal answers to Ledlow’s questions, ones you wouldn’t expect.

It’s just as funny in written form:
Kawhi's interview literalism is the best thing about the NBA right now
Q: How do you beat the Bucks 4 times in a row?
"I don't know. I haven't done it."
Q: One win away from the NBA Finals, what's this team's mentality?
"I mean, I haven't even gotten in the locker room yet"

Leonard’s literal responses are the best. They led to some laughs after Game 2 of the series as well.
Leonard had 35 points, 7 rebounds, 9 assists, and was 5-for-8 on threes in the 105-99 win. His Raptors head back to Toronto for Game 6 on Saturday with a chance to close out the series.
