San Antonio South Side Will Soon Be Home to Kawhi Leonard Mural 

The South Side has made it clear that if you love someone, you don't put a ring on it, you dedicate a huge mural to them instead (ex. this Selena mural at Beatrice Avenue and South Flores Street).

Now, it's Spurs superstar Kawhi Leonard that is getting his face drawn on the side of a building.



Artist Alex James shared a mock-up of the mural on his Instagram late last week, paying tribute to the the retro Spurs colors and Leonard's presence as "The Klaw."

The artist has posted updates of his work to tease the final product, which will be on South Flores near Military Drive.


While you might not ever be able to get a selfie with the Spur, here's the next best thing. Because, Kawhi not?
