The Milwaukee Bucks game operations staff trolled Kawhi Leonard in hilarious fashion during Saturday’s game against the Toronto Raptors.
Seriously, get these people some more money.
The game operations folks at the Fiserv Forum came up with an all-time tremendous troll on Saturday night. The Milwaukee Bucks were hosting the Toronto Raptors in a matchup between the top two teams in the Eastern Conference, and well, you could say that Kawhi Leonard got singled out after he turned the ball over.
Leonard accidentally threw the ball into the backcourt, officially changing possession to Milwaukee. Almost immediately, the ever-famous Kawhi Leonard laugh then rang throughout the arena.
The Kawhi laugh has become quite popular among NBA fans. It happened right before the regular season began, when Leonard was being interviewed in an introductory press conference. A reporter asked him a question about his personality, and after commenting that he’s “a fun guy,” Leonard said that he didn’t know where the reporter was sitting at. He then followed up with the now very famous cackle.
If you’ve yet to hear the Kawhi Leonard laugh, here is the clip from that preseason press conference:
As it’s showing, Leonard might not ever be able to escape the jokes involving the laugh. It will forever be a means of trolling for the 27-year-old, and kudos to the Fiserv Forum employees for coming up with a brilliant way to use it. Whether Leonard enjoyed the trolling, or if he even noticed it at all, it was a pretty hilarious moment for everybody attending the game.
Whether it bothered Leonard or not doesn’t really matter. He scored 30 points, recorded six rebounds and six assists, and the Raptors rolled on to a 123-116 win over the team that might be their biggest threat in the East.
Toronto is sitting pretty at 30-12 — the best record in the NBA — and having to deal with minor trolling probably isn’t a big deal for Leonard right now.
