Kawhi Leonard is already one of the best players in the NBA, and he’s also well on his way to mastering the kitchen.

The Los Angeles Clippers All-Star appeared on a Chinese cooking show in February and showed off some of his skills with a wok as he prepared a variety of dishes, including sweet and sour mandarin fish.

After working in the kitchen, Leonard sat down with his uncle and business strategist Dennis Robertson (also known as Uncle Dennis) to enjoy the fruits of his labor. Leonard struggled to use the chopsticks provided due to his huge hands, but seemed to enjoy the flavor of the sweet and sour fish. Uncle Dennis gave the dish a four out of five as “there is always room for improvement”.

It’s safe to say that Leonard enjoyed cooking more than when he appeared on Serge Ibaka’s show. how hungry are you in 2019 and was fed bull penis pizza.

Leonard has learned new recipes to develop his skills as a chef, but none are likely to top the staple of his repertoire: fried chicken wings (although Uncle Dennis prefers them cooked).

During a break in the party, Leonard and his uncle exchanged three wishes for each other. Uncle Dennis’ hopes for his nephew were simple: get healthy, another championship ring, and win. The last two seem pretty redundant, but we’ll let it get away with it.

Leonard also wished Uncle Dennis good health, then chased him down with a pair of zingers: “Be smarter, get me more money.”

Leonard is expected to earn more than $88 million with the Clippers over the next two seasons and has a player option for the 2024-25 campaign worth nearly $49 million. But like any good businessman, the double NBA champion is already considering other ways to grow his fortune.

The 31-year-old missed the entire 2021-22 season as he recovered from an ACL injury. A return to pre-injury form would return the Clippers to title contender status as they enter the fourth year of the Leonard-Paul George era.
