Kawhi Leonard told reporters in Toronto he was "a fun guy" back in September, and the Raptors star went some way to proving it at the champion's title parade on Monday.
The two-time NBA Finals MVP became a social media meme ahead of his first campaign in Toronto when he awkwardly laughed at a reporter having told him he was "a fun guy" in response to a question about what he wanted people to know about him. The former Spurs star had the last laugh during the season, leading Toronto to a Finals victory over the Warriors to earn the franchise its first title.
And Leonard revisited that famous moment from nine months ago when he signed off his address to supporters at the parade.
"Enjoy this moment and have fun with it," Leonard said before mocking his own laugh, much to the delight of his Raptors team-mates.
The 27-year-old was also wearing a t-shirt saying 'Board Man Gets Paid', which was recently revealed to be the phrase Leonard used when trash talking opponents in college.
