Default What type of player with Kawhi Leonard be?

He's a versatile player with the capabilities of playing the 2 and 3, rebounds well, plays above average defense, and is a good shooter. He's coming up on his 3rd season and has made quite a name for himself in the post-season and was arguably the most consistent player on the Spurs during the Finals. At the age of 21, does he have the potential to be one of the next superstars?

Scottie Pippen without the ball-handling and passing, maybe a bit mentally tougher than Pippen. Dude is only 21 and he handled the pressure of the Finals extremely well, I can only imagine how mentally tough he will be in a few years.

I'd like Pop to have him spend the summer learning to handle the ball, incorporate him into the offense instead of parking him in the corner waiting to shoot the 3, play him 40 mins a game and turn the keys over to him - Manu is no longer capable of being one of the big 3 in SA. He and Green both need to practice ball-handling and the fast break.

I believe you got your wish.
