San Antonio Spurs star Kawhi Leonard’s tour of China continued with the Great Wall of China.

The San Antonio Spurs’ offseason looks like it’s drawn to a close, unless a Kyrie Irving deal is struck before the 2017-18 season starts. That means little-to-no news hits and the delay before the next campaign begins, except if you’re the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In the meantime, Kawhi Leonard has taken to China to do promotional work for the NBA. It’s been all over the Spurs’ Twitter account, in case you missed it.

On the next stop of Leonard’s tour of the country, he went to The Great Wall of China, a world landmark. He took in the sights of this historic structure and spoke about in this video posted to the Spurs’ Twitter account:

It’s all part of the Summer of Kawhi as he does work for the NBA overseas and gets a fun experience. His fun was jokingly mocked by Manu Ginobili, who called Leonard out for smiling too much. It’s not every day that he’s caught smiling, especially this often within one week.

In about two months, those smiles will go away as the Spurs return to the AT&T Center for the 2017-18 season. It’s approaching fast, with the first game to take place on Wednesday, October 18 against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Look for Leonard and the rest of the Spurs to get the season started here and maybe crack a few smiles for the excitement of the build toward the 2018 NBA playoffs.
