Kawhi Leonard Rumors: Knicks "Expected To Push Hard" For All Star Forward

Kawhi Leonard Rumors: Knicks

Leonard was a Nike endorser until 2018 but now endorses New Balance.

Leonard is attempting to retain control of the "Klaw" logo that he is claiming he created. Nike responded on 11th March by saying that it owns property rights and demanded Leonard cease use.

On a travel day for National Basketball Association finals, Leonard filed the federal lawsuit. Let's see how he handles the inevitable questions surrounding this lawsuit as Toronto Raptors prepares for Wednesday's Finals game against the Golden State Warriors. The Toronto Raptors took a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals with a 105-92 win in Game 4, and while the Warriors can still complete a historic comeback, they are for the first time underdogs, their backs decidedly against the wall.

As Kawhi Leonard calls San Diego his home, he filed the federal lawsuit against Nike over the unauthorized rights to use the "Klaw" logo, in California.

The latest in the popular Halo series, Halo : Infinite , will be launched in Autumn in time for the next generation Xbox console. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is $15 per month and includes Xbox Game Pass PC and all of the benefits of Xbox Live Gold.


On Monday, Nike's Spokesman denied commenting adhering to the protocol of the company which does not allow discussing the pending litigation.

He speaks very highly of head coach Nick Nurse, gushes about the city of Toronto whenever he's asked, and in helping the Raptors earn their first trip to the NBA Finals, he's already tasted success north of the border.

"Unbeknownst to Leonard and without his consent, Nike filed an application for copyright registration of his logo and falsely represented in the application that Nike had authored the logo".

"Leonard traced his notably large hand, and, inside the hand, drew stylised versions of his initials "KL" and the number that he had worn for much of his career, '2". On the application, the lawsuit says, Nike claimed authorship in 2014 of the logo and rights and permissions to the logo. He refined the logo in December 2011.
