MORENO VALLEY (CBSLA) — While things aren't looking great for Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers after losing the first two games of its opening round playoff series at home against the Dallas Mavericks, the man known as The Claw has some big things happening off the court.

The Moreno Valley native recently debuted his new Kawhi "Moreno Valley" colorway sneakers in the playoffs against the Mavericks. The sneakers from New Balance go on sale June 1 and are selling for $159.99

The sneakers feature the City of Moreno Valley official seal on the tongue of the shoe and Leonard's number two on the bottom of the laces. In addition to the shoes, Leonard, New Balance and the 2K Foundation will also donate a basketball court and playground to Moreno Valley's Weston Park.

Leonard and the Clippers return to the hardwood on Friday, May 28 for game three of its playoff series against the Mavericks.
