First, LeBron James shaved his head. Now, Kawhi Leonard's signature braids are gone.
This summer is weird.
On Tuesday, Comedy Central's Legends tweeted out a photo of the San Antonio Spurs superstar without his trademark hairstyle. It's unclear when the Claw donned the new 'do.
Perhaps it's an offseason look.
Leonard is basically a ghost on social media—he has four, count 'em, four tweets to his name—so he could've been doing this every summer all along.
Update: Wednesday, June 21 at 1 p.m. ET
According to the San Antonio Express-News' Jabari Young, the photo is fake.
"Just received a call from people close to Kawhi," Young tweeted. "Told me this photo is fake. So there's that."
Long live the braids.
