Gerald Wallace is one of the better forwards in the league, known for his impressive defensive ability. While Leonard is not yet able to match Wallace's offense, his lock-down defense has given us enough evidence to compare the rookie with the All-Star forward.
Like Wallace, Leonard is a versatile defender, whose athleticism makes him a valuable asset to any team.
Wallace is the ideal comparison for Leonard, but in order to fully live up to those standards, Leonard's offensive game will need to improve.
Now, this isn't to say that Leonard is inept when it comes to scoring, but he does not possess Wallace's ability to knock down a big shot or blow by a defender with ease.
Still, the pure athleticism of Leonard makes Gerald Wallace a nice comparison.
