WATCH: Kawhi Leonard puts ‘Respect Above All' in new Air Jordan ad

Leonard featured in new Air Jordan Brand ad

SAN ANTONIO – The Air Jordan Brand released a new ad on social media on Tuesday that features San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard.

The 30-second ad was shot at the San Diego State practice facility, where Leonard does a majority of his offseason training.

Leonard is seen in the gym going through an intense offseason workout. 

The premise of the ad is that the Spurs' quiet star puts winning and respect above fame, awards and individual stats.


As in previous Air Jordan ads, Leonard does not say a word throughout the commercial.

This is the second ad the Air Jordan Brand has released this summer featuring Leonard. 

In June, the company released a commercial that asked: "Could Kawhi get buckets on Kawhi?"

The commercial made a case for Leonard being the best two-way player in the NBA.

Leonard was a finalist for NBA MVP and Defensive Player of the Year last season, the latter being an award he won back-to-back before this season. 

He is widely regarded as one of the top five players in the NBA. Check out the new Kawhi Leonard commercial below:
