Kawhi Leonard had his hair cut, and the cornrows are gone

No more braids for Kawhi … is this real life?

With the off-season in full swing, Kawhi Leonard is sporting a new hairdo, and it’s more than just a bit unsettling.

But nevertheless, behold. The first social media pic of Kawhi —-WITHOUT HIS BRAIDS!!

That’s right, Spurs fans; the second gentleman from the right is your franchise player. While we sit here in amazement that Kawhi cut his hair, it seems like a good point in time to break down his career stats, by hairdo.

With Braids (per game)

  • 16.4 points
  • 5.8 rebounds
  • 2.3 assists
  • 1.8 steals
  • 49.5% shooting overall (38.8% from three)
  • 2014 NBA Finals MVP
  • Two-time Defensive Player of the Year
  • Two-time All-Star

Without Braids

  • TBD

Bold career choice, is it not? We can only hope he’s not about to have a Sampson moment.

RIP Kawhi’s braids, we hardly knew ye.
