Kwahi Leonard is fighting off more than just the Warriors.

The Toronto Raptors superstar has filed a federal lawsuit against Nike, claiming it wrongfully copyrighted the famous “Klaw” logo that appeared on his apparel while with the behemoth shoe company, according to the Portland Biz Journal.

Leonard, now the face of New Balance, asserts he designed the logo that was rendered moot when he declined to extend his contract with Nike.

The suit was filed in Southern California, and emerges less than a week after the New York Times revealed the Los Angeles Clippers — long-rumored to land the coveted 27-year-old as a free agent this summer — tried buying away the rights to the logo from Nike.
