‘Ha, ha, ha. Hahaha, ha, ha.’ - Kawhi Leonard

Hello, Earthlings. Kawhi Leonard is observing your species and has learned how to mimic the human laugh:

He’s progressed from smiling to laughing this season. By this time next fall, he could actually be having fun.

In all seriousness, this does feel a little mean spirited. Leonard isn’t as comfortable in front of the spotlight as many of the league’s other stars. He likely won’t be thrilled to learn that he being roasted on the internet all day just because he laughed.
