The board man gets paid to do many things, and he brought some excitement to Saturday’s Game 1 matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers with a third-quarter slam. Kawhi Leonard posterized Maxi Kleber on a fastbreak dunk and proceeded to jog back to his bench like nothing out of the ordinary had happened.

Kleber probably should've thought about trying to meet Leonard at the apex, as the Clippers star has completed 60 of his 63 dunk attempts this season. It’s never easy to pry the rock out of Leonard’s claw-like hands. Kleber should probably make a business decision next time, so he doesn’t end up looking like a folding chair on the baseline.
