Kawhi Leonard has a $94 million contract but can't live without his Wingstop coupons

If I became a multi-millionaire athlete — never mind that I would have to grow like two feet and put on 100 pounds — I probably wouldn't look at the menu prices at restaurants.

But Kawhi Leonard is not me. This guy is a San Antonio Spur. And in the most Spurs manner possible, Leonard uses coupons to get free food.

Apparently, the hunger is so great he can't survive without them, according to this Sports Illustrated feature:

"[Leonard] is happy to sponsor Wingstop, which sends him coupons for free wings, so he can feed his Mango Habanero addiction. This winter, after his $94 million contract kicked in, he panicked when he lost his coupons. Wingstop generously replenished his supply."

As if we don't think he can get any more likable than this, the forward also still rocks cornrows and drives a 1997 Chevy Tahoe.

Leonard tells Sports Illustrated: "I don't like to bring attention to myself. I don't like to make a scene."
