San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard signed a five-year extension worth $94.3 million this summer. But did he blow any of it to celebrate?

"No, not at all," Leonard told reporters when asked if he lived it up after signing, via the San Antonio Express-News.

Turns out the five more years part would have been the cause for celebration, not the dollar amount—you know, if he celebrated.

"That's what I'm most happy about," Leonard said. "I want to play 10 or more years in this league."

How Spursian of you, Kawhi.
