    Will Kawhi Leonard Live Up to the Finals MVP award?

    Leonard has already shown himself to be an elite defender, and he is a strong rebounder for his position and respectable scorer. This year he managed to increase his scoring, rebounding, assists and blocks and maintain his steals despite a slight decrease in minutes. He had a big series and earned the MVP award, an award that very few players have been able to attach their name to. Some of the best small forwards who ever played the game don't even have one: Pippen, Nique, Melo, Dr. J., Elgin Baylor, Chris Mullin.


    This is a pretty rare feat. I think Leonard is great,and Pop seems to think he is the future of the franchise, but is he going to live up to this award? Will people in 15 years see this as a series that defined a future great, or will he become a guy like Cedric Maxwell who was good, but never an All-Star despite playing at a high level in an important series?

    He doesn't need to. He earned it at that point in time.

    I thought he was Ron Artest 2.0 (impact wise at least) coming into the league. Hopefully with a championship and a FMVP, he can be more than that and strive for a Pippen type player.

    He would be lucky to have the career artest has had. Minus the crazy crap of course. Artest had himself a great career, probably worthy of hof consideration. Not saying kawhi can't live up to that and surpass him, but don't forget how good ron was lol

    He has earned it, but I do hope he takes that next step.

    He's so quiet and composed, I'd love for him to work his way into stardom.

    Kawhi has all the potential.

    He can defend the other team's best player (might be some exceptions?).
    He's athletic (some of his dunks in the playoffs were, like, WOW!).
    He's a capable shooter.
    He's got a good attitude.

    The only question is what kind of player he turns into. I don't think he could be the star of a team unless he starts playing and behaving in a way that reflects a star. But he is definitely the glue of a team, e.g. Joakim Noah.

    What he needs to work on:

    Free throw shooting
    Shooting, in general
    Ball handling and movement (had some travels)

    All 'n all, a very bright future.

    Who the best in the league? You tell me...

    Agreed, arrest at one point was easily one of the best all around players in the league. A top 15 player even.

    I don't see Kawhi getting to that level and like most people, I'm a huge fan of his.

    I think he may have some allstar seasons, but he won't be a superstar. I do think he can be the third guy on a championship team though throughout his career

    Nah, I know how good Ron was. Just saying this can be the push to make him strive to be more than Ron.

    I don't see him doing much in the regular season because he really doesn't need to. But I do think he will continue to be a great player in the post season and a huge part of the Spurs staying relevant.
