The Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers says the Raptors small forward Kawhi Leonard reminds him of Michael Jordan.

“He is the most like Jordan that we’ve seen… Not that he is Jordan or anything like that, but he’s the most like him. Big hands, post game, can finish, great leaper, great defender, in-between game, if you beat him to the spot he bumps you off and then you add his three-point shooting,” Rivers said, per Bleacher Report.

Leonard averaging 31.2 points per game, while shooting at 50.7 percent from the floor, in the postseason.
