You may not be a basketball fan, but I will assume you understand the value of $90 million and the possible effects it may have on one’s choice of vehicles.
The NBA’s 2015 Defensive Player of the Year, Kawhi Leonard drives a 1997 Chevy Tahoe. The same 1997 Chevy Tahoe he owned as a teenager in California when he nicknamed it “the gas guzzler”... and still drives because “It runs and it’s paid off.”
Sports Illustrated did a fascinating profile of him recently and it is well worth a read regardless of your NBA fandom.
A few more interesting facts about this ‘97 Tahoe driver:
- His only sponsorship is Wingstop, which he agreed to because they give him coupons for free mango habanero wings
- He is 6'7" with a 7'3" wingspan and 11-inch hands
- During the off season he shares a 2 bedroom apartment in San Diego with one of his high school friends
