Kawhi’s monster slam described by rival TV crew

We all know that Kawhi’s Leonard’s dunk over New Orleans center Chris Kaman was pretty special.

It happened midway through the first quarter of the Spurs’ victory over New Orleans Friday night. And by halftime, it had already been saved for posterity on You Tube.

Less than three days later, it’s already picked up more than 2,500 hits. And probably destined for a poster, too.

It’s also particularly interesting to watch the video of the play with the New Orleans broadcasters. Hornets play-by-play man Bob Licht punctuates Leonard’s in-your-face slam with a resounding “ouch.”

But analyst Gil McGregor had the most interesting take, and a pretty good nickname for the Spurs rookie in the process.   

After watching Leonard posterize Kaman, McGregor calls Leonard “Kawow.”


Here’s the You Tube video of the play, through the Hornets’ broadcast.
