Kawhi Leonard may be the most frugal, down-to-earth athlete in all of professional sports.
Kawhi Leonard is averaging 21 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.5 assists this season. These are numbers that are along with his defensive prowess, making him one of the top three players in the NBA.
In a compelling and interesting look at Leonard through the eyes and words of Sports Illustrated’s Lee Jenkins, we find out that the Spurs $94 million man will snap out over Wingstop coupons. He also still drives a 1997 Chevy Tahoe, because he can.
Leonard still drives a 1997 Chevy Tahoe that’s nicknamed “Gas Guzzler.” He does it because “it runs and it’s paid off.”
Leonard freaked out after he lost a book of coupons from his sponsor Wingstop last summer and asked for them to give him new ones so that he could get free wings—even though his new $94 million contract had just kicked in.
Leonard reportedly also has a Porsche but he rarely drives it, according to article by Jenkins. The piece also highlights Leonard's disdain for celebrity or the millions in endorsements that he could command as well.
