Finding Kawhi Leonard has become a mini trend in recent weeks. So where will this San Antonio Spurs star end up next? Please note this post is meant for satire.

Every other day—actually, every day—there seems to be a new story about Kawhi Leonard, all based on rumors and reports of where the San Antonio Spurs star will play next or how tarnished his relationship is with the organization. As long as no one from the Spurs organization speaks on the matter, or Leonard and his “group,” there’s no clarity on where this situation goes next.

Leonard has become a bit of a media sensation now, almost paparazzi-like since no one sees him; that’s rare for a sports superstar, but for the most part, the “Klaw” has solitude.

Then came the video from New York, where Leonard was spotted last month. A ruckus was made over not only this, but his latest public appearance, at the Los Angeles Dodgers game Thursday night.

Everyone wants to know where Leonard will be next, but where specifically could he show up next? Who will spot him and when? Should this all really matter? Let’s take a look:

  • Playing Fortnite: Will someone find Leonard playing Fortnite, the video game that’s taken over consoles? He could have a Twitch account for all anyone knows. Hold on, one second: sports players have started to get carpal tunnel syndrome! 
  • From East to West to Central?: Leonard popped up in New York and Los Angeles, so why not meet in the middle and go to Chicago? They are rumored to have some delicious deep dish pizza.
  • Cameo in Deadpool 2: Deadpool continues to hang out with celebrities in promotional videos for Deadpool 2. What if Wade Wilson finds Leonard and his group and makes them into the next X-Force members on the big screen? You can definitely picture him with Wolverine-like claws to fit the “Klaw” persona.
  • Proxy for Dwane Casey: After LeBron James introduced “LeBronto,” Dwane Casey was fired as head coach of the Toronto Raptors. Casey was voted Coach of the Year by his peers, however, and the award will be presented at the 2018 NBA Awards in June. That’s, well, not a great situation. Everyone knows Leonard will not win an award this summer, so why not have him make a one-off appearance as Casey’s proxy? It does not make up for all the MVP speculation he received before the start of the 2017-18 season, but it’s sure to make everything hit the fan.
  • Wait, why is he at Oracle Arena?: “Who’s that sitting courtside at Oracle Arena? Why is he only one row behind the Golden State Warriors bench? Wait, is that Kawhi Leonard?” Hello, social media storm. Dodger Stadium to Oracle is a five-and-a-half-hour drive while a flight can take about 90 minutes.
