resilient part 2 Posted June 8, 2019 Share Posted June 8, 2019 (edited) I don't think we have to wait for the finals to end or the offseason to start for me to ask this one. But with the way KL has been playing in these playoffs and posting numbers, leads me to ponder some questions. such as; Does KL who is still relatively young, have time/potential, to become a top 10 player? Will he? or no chance? He, at this time, is one game away, from leading Toronto to a tittle (I expect without KD, this will happen) he has multiple tittles in his resume.(would be potential 4 if that dummy made a single FT) he has always been one of, if not the best 2 way player of this generation or any. He is humble and easy to play with (not including last year with the Spurs perhaps) HE HAS A SIGNATURE GAME WINNER. He hasn't always been the best player on his team however (Duncan) and certainly didn't enter the league on fire like some other all time greats (Duncan, Jordan, Lebron. Bird, Magic etc..) But like Kobe has gotten better with age. He has been a top 10 player in his era for a good part of his career. I think playing on a championship level team like the Spurs didn't allow him to show what he could/can do as a main top option like he is doing now. (side note: situations matter) KL has also be pretty clutch (one of my most important criterias) KL played game four with 35 points and not a single turnover (I think only one player, one time has ever done that) tells me, while he isn't the greatest "play-maker" he is far better than people thought in that category. I could say more, but you get my gist. So having said all of that, do people think Kawhi Leonard has a legit chance of becoming a top 10 player? Am I just living in the moment and over reacting/reaching on this one? I say NO, but lets hear what others think. Speak now of forever keep your peace. GO!
