Earlier in the year, it seemed like PG would take this comparison by a landslide. Now as the season winds down, KL seems to be hitting his stride preparing for the playoffs. Also, Kawhi Leonard seems like the best perimeter defender in the game right now. I would take Kawhi Leonard over Paul George right now. KL's FG%(.526), TS%(.605) eFG%(.579) have all risen while his usage has risen too. PG shooting at FG%(.425), TS%(.555) eFG%(.491).

I remember a lot of sh..t talking when the Spurs lost earlier in the season to the Pacers. My inbox has some hate mail in there. Haters discuss.

KL is a pretty good player. its just PG is massively overrated.

If Kawhi Leonard ever played PG type minutes people would see that everyone has been sleeping on this dude. Kawhi's per 36min stats are amazing. He plays on a great spurs team so he only averages 9 shots per game (in 29mpg) while PG is chucking 17 a game at a 42% clip.

PLUS Kawhi isnt a distraction and isnt paying stripper $1mill for abortions

so to prove your point on how good a player is you use a stat that is largely team based?

Both teams are relatively the same. Kawhi also plays in the toughest division and conference. Not so much for PG.
