After missing most of the 2018 season with a quad injury, Kawh is back playing at the top of his game.
NBA Veteran Kendrick Perkins has gone as far as saying that Kawhi Leonard is remding him of one of the greatest players of all time, Michael Jordan.
“This may sound crazy, but Kawhi Leonard reminds me of Michael Jordan,” Perkins said during a Monday appearance on ESPN’s “Get Up.”
“I’m not comparing him to Mike. But if you watch the way he plays, his style, the way he plays the game on both ends – he has a game that mimics Michael Jordan.
“It’s not all the way fancy. He gets to his spots (on the floor). He’s got nice turnarounds, big hands, palms the ball. And on the defensive end, he’s probably the best in the game.”

Leonard averaged a career-high 26.6 points in his first season in Toronto, his form has already so far carried on into the post-season with a 28-point average in the first-round playoffs series against the Orlando Magic.
If Leonard is like anyone, it’s Scottie Pippen, not MJ.
Comparing to MJ is laughable.

The Raptors will have a chance to close out the series in Game 5 on Tuesday at their home court, Scotiabank Arena.
What would Michael Jordan do?
