Twitter Reaction: Kawhi Leonard roasted for press conference laugh

Eric Smith caught up with Kawhi Leonard, who talks about the challenge of not being able to compete last season, and looks forward to gelling with his new teammates and for a deep championship run.

Toronto Raptors fans waited months to hear from Kawhi Leonard.

The notoriously quiet superstar hadn’t uttered a single public word since his July 18 trade from the San Antonio Spurs, but on Monday, Leonard was finally introduced as a member of his new team.

It took less than one minute for him to deliver an epic moment.

But it’s not what he said that’s causing a stir. It’s that single, offbeat, weird, almost-computerized laugh that he let off.

Check it out here:
