2011 NBA Draft Grades: Kawhi Leonard Goes No. 15 Overall, but Ends Up with Spurs
After being selected by the Indiana Pacers, Kawhi Leonard went to the Spurs in a trade that really helps out the San Antonio.
Small forward Richard Jefferson is much like Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, and Antonio McDyess, old.
And, even though point guard Tony Parker in only in his late-20s, he looks much older than that.
Therefore, enter San Diego State’s Kawhi Leonard who can enlighten a team and give them a second or even third wind.
For one, he can guard positions one through four, and has the transition ability to pick up the pace in San Antonio.
Now, whenever Tim Duncan is taking a break, you’ll see the future of the Spurs frontcourt in Leonard (at small forward) and DeJuan Blair (at power forward).
Or, Da’Sean Butler at small forward, Leonard at power forward, and Blair at center.
All that’s left is for the current seasoned vets to pass the torch and let ‘em fly.
However, until Duncan, Ginobili and Jefferson decide to hang it up, it’s highly recommended that these young bucks learn as much as possible from them.
Because after that dynasty, basketball is more than just a sport in San Antonio.
