There was Kyle Lowry (no, not that one), Pascal Siakam and Danny Green all looking very serious as they mentally prepped for their mission of closing out the series.
And then there was Raptors’ star Kawhi Leonard, who was photographed very staring intently at his wallet as he arrived at the arena.
Naturally, because internet, and the fact that we have all been there, staring at our wallet, wondering what happened, Leonard’s photo was immediately turned into a very relatable meme.https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/1138241752643579904

Yes, yes, he does.
I hope Kawhi just reads his wallet regularly. https://t.co/AKyMU7F03Y— Will Allard (@Will_Allard__) June 10, 2019

When you realize that Kawhi is opening a Dad leather wallet and not looking at his cellphone is the most Kawhi thing about this Kawhi photo.— Mrs.Sasspantalónes (@SassyPantsLady) June 10, 2019
Ain’t that the truth.
Turns out that, according to For The Win, Leonard was just looking in his wallet for a key card, but fake Kawhi Leonard stories are always way better than the real thing.
I reiterate, those stories are not real, but they are spectacular.
