Re: Kawhi with his second straight game of 5 steals
Similarities to Marion: good, all-round "utility" player
Marion has a lot more spring to his legs - like a pogo stick - much more touch in the paint - better on the fast break (Leonard usually gets an offensive foul).
Leonard's stroke mechanics are a lot better than Marion's (whose isn't - his 3s are just ugly). Doesn't get around screens well like Bowen did and his feet IMO aren't as quick. I like the active hands and his attitude, like Bowen's, is outstanding - doesn't get discouraged when he makes a mistake. Not that Bowen made many mistakes - if ever, some one knew his limits and played his role, it's Bowen.
Hopefully, the ceiling's high for Leonard. He's just finished his rookie season - and a shortened one, at that.
