SAN ANTONIO – Kawhi Leonard is an all-world NBA defender, and now he is defying gravity in a new Jordan Brand commercial.

Leonard is the star of the new commercial titled “Air Jordan XXXI: Hangtime.”

The commercial shows the reigning back-to-back NBA Defensive Player of the Year levitating through the atmosphere.

Leonard, the Spurs stoic star, doesn’t say a word before swatting a ball headed to the basket right out of mid-air.

The commercial has a brief voice-over that says “gravity has been rejected” at the end.

In the commercial, Leonard is sporting the new shoes from the Jordan Brand, the “Air Jordan XXXI: Fine Print.”

The “Fine Print” will go on sale this Saturday.

Leonard has been a member of the Jordan Brand since the summer of 2014.
