NBA Cyborg Kawhi Leonard Programmed to Laugh at Really Awkward Press Conference
The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year seems to be making an effort to fit in with his new team, for however brief a time he happens to be there.

After the Interwebs stopped screaming in terror at the implications of that laugh, it quickly pounced:

Anyway, perhaps the former Spur will master other human emotions during his time in Canada.
Just please stop laughing in public.
