Congratulations to Toronto Raptors for winning the 2019 NBA championship. Particularly to Kawhi Leonard for receiving the MVP (Most Valuable Player) award.

I invite anyone to google for "Kawhi autistic" and look for yourself what you find. I had to chuckle at some of the YouTube videos. Here is one:


Klay Thompson mocks Kawhi Leonard's laugh before game 5:




And of course, after the news conference, he forgot his own MVP trophy


To other people, all these video clips may not mean much. But to me, he reminds me so much about my laughing problems and eye-contact problems when I was young. People could easily misunderstand my laughing, and I have gotten into troubles more than once.

None of that mattered, at the end of the day.

I see a lot of speculation

Kawhi Leonard does seem to have an unusual way of going through life. His coach in college said it was nearly impossible to get him to talk, but when he did he was great to talk basketball with.

He could be on the spectrum. Either way I'm happy the raptors beat the warriors.
