    Another Kawhi article from Ziegler (the reporter from San Diego that covered Kawhi in his college days):

    It appears Masai should be recruiting Kawhis daughter instead.

    He needs to play more peekaboo. Babies are always amazed at how quickly you're able to reappear after vanishing. Masai needs to up his peekaboo game

    After extensive research I've found out that you're right.

    This is a great read everybody.

    Green’s credentials include a championship and an All-Defensive nod in 2017. This season, he’s added another: Kawhi whisperer. “I get it from everyone in the organization,” says Green, Leonard’s teammate for seven seasons in San Antonio. “It’s ‘How’s Kawhi, does he like it here?’ Man, I don’t f------ know. You have to ask him if he likes it. I think he likes it. But you have to ask him."

    Guys, how's Kawhi's defense this year? I know its really good via eye test but I don't see him in the DPOY conversation this season.

    so I'm just wondering, is he playing as good as previous year on the defensive end of the floor?

    I've seen flashes of brilliant man defense. He deflects or steals way more than DeRozan. He can guard bigs. Hes intelligent.

    I do get the feeling he has another defensive gear that hasnt shown itself..yet

    Heís one of the only players Iíve ever seen that can truly change a game on both ends of the floor with his defence. His ability to get timely steals is truly incredible. Guys simply canít play around with the ball when being guarded by Kawhi, especially when he is really engaged.

    Yeah, Kawhi is like the equivalent of a great rim protector in that opposing players eventually don't even think about driving on him. But I have noticed that guys will try to shoot over him.

    His role with the Raptors as the primary scorer will probably not allow him to focus on defense as much as he was able to with the Spurs. He's still really good though on that end of the floor. Likely not DPOY good to answer your question.

    Keon pointed out Kawhi had a huge defensive game throughout tonight, and that’s true, but those last two possessions are where we see that when it matters ... Kawhi can SHUT. THE FUCKING. DOOR.

    Wow.

    Call me crazy but I think Kawhi Leonard probably should be already deserving to be on the list of the top 50 NBA players of all time. Yes the sample size is small but really there arent many guys that were as talented as he is and he would have done well in any era.

    Kawhi, like many superstars, has seen his overall defensive impact drop as he's taken on a high offensive load, as you can't go all out on both ends for heavy minutes. But unlike many superstars, he's seen it drop to roughly average rather than way below average, and also unlike many superstars, he is still capable of making an insane difference on that end when he needs to - for short spurts shifting the momentum mid-game, or as we are seeing in some close games, making the opposing team's life miserable for the last two minutes of the game.

    Or maybe the reason we don't see him playing defense that hard all game is that he's saving himself for the Clippers next season?

    In the interview where serge says none of us are safe if kawhi leaves. I think this says something about how serge and ill bet the entire team want to stay here. DD wasnt the only one who wanted to stay. Ed Davis was upset and I believe Ross was too. Even LouWill wanted to stay. All for many reasons Im sure. Also what MU does in picking guys who are serious AND have quality character can go a long way. This on top of good people in the organization and as far as I know they are super cool too. Its hard to leave good people at a workplace.

    Kawhi should just move his gf and kid up here. Kids love the snow 😜. Ill bet he sees how Lowry and others kids enjoy their time here and does just that. Hope so at least. Casey said it couldnt be a better place to raise his young children.

    And ya of course theres winning. Go raps!
