The five-time All-Star and two-time NBA champ sat out all last season because of an ACL injury and recovery but he is ready to come back in a few months when the new season starts.
When he does get back onto the court, Leonard will be eager to remind people why he is such a beloved and successful basketball player.
He is obviously doing the work needed to play at the best of his abilities.
Kawhi's been in the weight room 😳

Leonard was spotted in the gym recently and he is looking downright beastly.
He appears to have hit the weight room and has added size and power to his body and looks far more intimidating than usual.
This is good news for the Clippers, who need Leonard to really come back strong if they wish to make a robust playoff run.
Kawhi Is Ready To Go
Until his injury, Leonard was one of the best players in the league.
During his last season with the Clippers, he was putting up 24.8 points, 6.5 rebounds, and 5.2 assists.
His career average is 19.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists.
Since joining the Clippers, Leonard has become the focal point for the team and is easily the most valuable player on the squad, alongside Paul George.
But unfortunately, injuries have slowed Leonard down a lot more over the last couple of years, culminating in the ACL mishap that made him lose a whole season.
It was only after Leonard was gone that the team showed how much they need him.
But with him returning in great shape, alongside George and newcomer John Wall, the Clippers might really be something fierce yet again.
