Behind closed doors, however, Leonard is apparently very funny. According to a lengthy ESPN profile on the forward, Leonard is a joke teller and “funny as s—t.”
“He's got a dry sense of humor. He's got a Vince Vaughn-like [sense of humor],” Leonard’s teammate Kyle Lowry told ESPN.
Justin Hutson, one of Leonard’s coaches when he was at San Diego State, also told ESPN that Leonard is funny.
“There's no question he has a dry sense of humor,” Hutson said. “That describes him very well.”
Leonard was asked about whether is humor was comparable to Vince Vaughn. Leonard initially replied, “Who’s that?” before he was told that the comedian starred in “Old School.”
“Oh, yeah, yeah. I know who you're talking about,” Leonard said, adding that he was unsure of the comparison.
“I guess people describe you better than yourself, right?” he said.
Leonard serious style on the court has put the Raptors on the brink of an NBA title.
