Wanting to help Kawhi Leonard get voted into the 2016 NBA All-Star Game starting lineup, this fan came up with a unique way to try to get the San Antonio Spurs forward some votes via Twitter.

It worked. And he had to follow through.

Brayden Neubauer, who is a writer for SB Nation's Pounding the Rock, wrote a little more than a week ago that he would get cornrows if his tweet was retweeted 12,000 times and got Leonard into the Western Conference starting lineup.
