Kawhi Leonard had high praise for one of the best players of all-time in the NBA and Hall of Famer Allen Iverson.

Leonard revealed Iverson was his favorite player growing up for what he brings to the table.

“Just his gameplay. How hard he played. He played both ends. Just seeing that team with the Sixers, bringing them to the finals and carrying them by himself.

That just resonated with me. His will not to give up,” Leonard told reporters, via Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.
