Insights into Kawhi Leonard’s LA lifestyle, including stunning $17.3 million mansion and swapping a 20-year-old engine for a Rolls-Royce

NBA superstar Kawhi Leonard isn’t one to be in the spotlight.

The former Raptor, 30, joined the LA Clippers in 2019 and signed a four-year contract extension worth $176.3 million last spring.

Leonard’s shy and quiet demeanor is a far cry from someone who brags about his vast wealth and is reflected in his ice-cold play on the pitch.

But since his big move to Los Angeles, the five-time All Star has started to come out of his shell.

Unfortunately, the 2021-22 season was a write-off for “The Claw” as an ACL injury will likely sideline him for the Clippers’ entire regular season.

He is likely to have been recuperating in a stunning $17.3 million mansion in LA’s exclusive Pacific Palisades neighborhood.

One of three properties in Leonard’s portfolio, the stylish pad offers incredible ocean views and comfort in nearly 12,000 square feet.

$176.3M CONTRACT RENEWAL

Decorated in neutral white, the huge rooms are spacious and large windows offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

Originally built for film producer Ryan Kavanaugh, the three-story mansion features six large bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.

While Leonard can relax or entertain in style, he has a game room, a 10-seat movie theater and a 960-bottle wine cellar at his disposal.

There is also a home gym for those important recovery workouts.

And the luxury doesn’t end on the 2-acre grounds with a massive infinity pool surrounded by a stylish wooden deck overlooking the mountains.

Leonard shares his forever home with his girlfriend Kishele Shipley and the couple’s two children.

But when it’s game day, he has a beautiful penthouse at the Ritz-Carlton Residences in downtown LA to focus on his work.

Located near the Staples Center, the $6.7 million condominium features three bedrooms, a rooftop pool and a full fitness center for relaxation NBA-ready.

LEONARD OUT WITH ACL INJURY

There is also an underground garage for Leonard to store his valuable vehicles.

And despite having a net worth of $80 million, the Clippers star is don’t follow petrolheads LeBron James and Kevin Durant when it comes to expensive engines.

While in San Antonio, Leonard drove a 20-year-old Chevy Tahoe LS—the same vehicle he tossed around in in high school.

When asked why he held on to the car for so long, he shrugged: “It works and it was worth it.”

Now that he’s in the glittering world of LA, there are small signs that Leonard is starting to blend in with the locals.

He was gifted a Rolls-Royce Cullinan in 2021 – but despite the luxury plaque, it’s perfectly understated to match its driver.

The luxury SUV sports a stylish black and white exterior, but there’s no outrageous paint job or fancy rims in sight.

It’s certainly a far cry from its LA Lakers rival LeBroncruising the streets of Hollywood in one floral Lamborghini Aventador.

As if two qualities weren’t enough, Leonard has a third ace up his sleeve.

Along with his two pads in LA, he also has a third waterfront mansion in Rancho Santa Fe near San Diego.

The then Raptor cost a cool $13.3 million in 2019 and splashed out on the five-acre Tuscan-style estate.

Another huge living space, there are seven bedrooms, with the master suite boasting a huge dressing room and spa-like bathroom.

Elsewhere there is another home theater, a gourmet kitchen area, and a gigantic sprawling pool on the premises.

All of this comfort allows Leonard to escape from Los Angeles and will likely have served as a welcome escape base during his recent injury hell.

“IT’S WORKING AND IT’S WORTH IT”

The Clippers recently gave a rare update on Leonard’s ACL injury, which required surgery in July 2021.

Knee injuries of this nature usually take around a year to heal and the Clippers don’t appear confident of Kawhi playing again this season.

Coach Ty Lue said on February 4: “We know Kawhi is unlikely to come back, we don’t know the status of PG.”

“These guys just keep fighting every night.”
