After the Toronto Raptors play the Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals, Kawhi Leonard may be headed to another kind of court.

Leonard, who plays small forward for the Raptors, filed a lawsuit against Nike to reclaim control over the Klaw logo he says he created, ESPN reports. The logo in question is a traced outline of his hand, featuring his initials and the number 2, which is his jersey number. ”In 2011, just after being drafted to the National Basketball Association, Kawhi Leonard authored a unique logo that included elements that were meaningful and unique to him. … The drawing Leonard authored was an extension and continuation of drawings he had been creating since early in his college career,” the lawsuit reads.
