New Photo Reveals Kawhi Leonard Cut Off His Trademark Braids

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.

OAKLAND, CA - MAY 14: Kawhi Leonard #2 of the San Antonio Spurs looks on during the game against the Golden State Warriors in Game One of the Western Conference Finals of the 2017 NBA Playoffs on May 14, 2017 at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, California. NOTE T

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.
