Kawhi Leonard is undoubtedly one of the best NBA players right now, especially after earning the Toronto Raptors their first championship ever. Following this, Kawhi left the Raptors to sign with the Clippers, who are now contenders to win the title.

However, Leonard has always been an impressive athlete. In a recent article by The Ringer, Leonard’s high school coach, Tim Sweeney Jr., shared some stories on the star. He even compared Leonard to a defensive star of the 1990s.

“This kid’s going to be an NBA All-Star by the time we’re done with him,” Sweeney said. “He was a Dennis Rodman that could score.”

A comparison to Rodman is not something that should be taken lightly. Rodman was one of the biggest NBA stars of the 90s and was pivotal in the Chicago Bulls era. Being compared to such a legendary player like Rodman at such a young age shows just how good Leonard has been since he was a kid.
