Kawhi Leonard Makes A Statement On His Bid As The MVP And Defensive Player Of The Year
The silent assassin from San Antonio Spurs, Kawhi Leonard, showcased his skills once again, making him more eligible to bag another MVP and Defensive Player of the year.
NBA Draft 2011
When Kawhi Leonard entered the NBA, a scouting report states that the California kid is only a defensive player. Most of the NBA analysts agreed of the said claims, paving ways for 14 teams to pass on him in the NBA Draft last 2011. However, in a stunning move, San Antonio Spurs traded their former Point Guard, George Hill for Kawhi Leonard. NBA Teams were puzzled about the trade but they know at that time that Gregg Popovich saw something from Kawhi.

Kawhi Leonard then continued to develop his game under the watchful eyes of Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. Popovich then made a move in inserting Kawhi Leonard to the starting lineup which was the opportunity that he was longing for. Kawhi Leonard not only blossomed as an All-Star but an MVP candidate for the past 4 years. The product of San Diego State also has developed a dependable jump shot which was questioned during the NBA draft.
Kawhi Leonard has given the name “The Klaw” due to his enormous big hands and a claw-like defense. NBA Superstars also commented about the demeanor Kawhi Leonard has. The four times MVP LeBron James also praised Kawhi Leonard of his efficiency at both ends of the court. There are rumors swirling the NBA world that Kawhi Leonard already lost a step on his defense. However, that’s not the case and again he proved that The Klaw is still there.
Kawhi Leonard didn’t only beat the Houston Rockets yesterday but also made a statement. Leonard made the game winning shot and chased down James Harden to block his shot and ultimately securing the win with two free throw shots.
