LOOK: Meeting Manny Pacquiao puts a smile on Fun Guy Kawhi Leonard s face

As we have seen throughout his career, Kawhi Leonard is one of the most enigmatic personalities in the NBA today.  The self-proclaimed 'Fun Guy' isn't too big on talking, or even emotions for that matter.  The usually-stoic swing man usually just gets on the court, gets things done, and then leaves. That's pretty much what he did last season.  After being traded to the Toronto Raptors, Leonard got the job done by helping The North to their first ever-NBA championship, and then left in the postseason to go home and play for the Los Angeles Clippers.  Winning a championship, the second of his career, as well as winning his second Finals MVP plum was enough to put a smile on Kawhi's face, and let's face it, there isn't much that can 'The Klaw" to flash his pearly-whites.  One other thing that apparently can get Kawhi to smile is meeting boxing icon Manny Pacquiao.  The NBA star was in attendance at the Pacquiao-Keith Thurman welterweight title bout in Las Vegas over the weekend, and while he seemed to less than psyched while watching the action, he did seem to be quite happy to see the "Pacman" backstage, and a photo is circulating social media.  I wonder if Kawhi flashed this smile at any time during the fight ???? Mr. Fun Guy and Mr. Pacman (Not my photo - floating around Twitterverse) pic.twitter.com/gCq2E5qf0V — TJ Manotoc (@tjmanotoc) July 22, 2019 To be fair, getting a photo opportunity with a living legend like Manny Pacquiao, especially after he turned in yet another masterful performance, will make anyone grin.  The 40-year old Pacquiao defeated Thurman by split decision to become the new WBA (Super) Welterweight World Champion.  Congratulations to Manny Pacquiao, and congratulations to Fun Guy Kawhi for the title, the new team, and the big payday! .....»»
