Watch: Enigmatic Kawhi Leonard parties in locker room after winning title
Kawhi Leonard told everyone during his introductory press conference upon joining the Toronto Raptors that he was “fun guy.” Though many doubted that, Leonard has shown that is the case.
After leading his Toronto Raptors to the championship with a 114-110 win in Game 6 at Oracle Arena against the Golden State Warriors, Leonard went into the locker room and celebrated with his teammates. He danced and popped bottles as he celebrated:

Leonard is viewed as robotic because of the lack of emotions he displays and straightforward answers he gives in interviews. Maybe he just has supreme focus that keeps him from letting up until he’s finally reached his goal. It wasn’t until he won the title that he finally put it all down to celebrate, which is admirable.
