Kawhi Leonard Boldly Declares LA ‘His City’, Takes Not-So-Subtle Shots At LeBron James In New Balance’s ‘Reign Over LA’ Commercial

New Balance


The NBA season tips off tonight with much-anticipated battle of LA between the newly revamped Clippers and the LeBron James-Anthony Davis led Lakers.

Before tonight’s season opener, New Balance released a commercial to celebrate the release of Kawhi Leonard’s new signature shoe, the OMN1s. In the video, New Balance and Kawhi make some bold claims about LA being Kawhi’s “city” and include some imagery that takes shots at LeBron James’ “King” status.

This Clippers-Lakers rivalry is going to be lit.

Kawhi’s “Reign Gold” OMN1S colorway will be available on www.newbalance.com/basketball on October 23rd, at select global New Balance flagship stores and at select Shoe Palace & Foot Locker stores in Los Angeles. Following the debut “Reign Gold” colorway, six additional OMN1S colorways are set to release for the remainder of 2019.
