LA Lakers fans in the Philippines are trying to make their voice heard to free agent Kawhi Leonard.
At least two electronic billboards asking the 2019 NBA Finals MVP "KaWhyNot?" have been spotted across Metro Manila.

The Lakers were able to free up close to a max salary slot, after involving the Washington Wizards in their trade for Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans.
Following a report from Yahoo's Chris Haynes that Leonard is not expected to make a final decision anytime soon, it's possible that the billboards and their message may still reach the Klaw and affect his thinking.
Kawhi Leonard will not take any meetings with teams today, as he'll ramp up the process over next couple days, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) July 1, 2019
