Via Andrew Greiff of Los Angeles Times:

Bears players wanted to know about Kawhi Leonard’s leadership style. He’s quiet, Rivers told them, but became more vocal as the season went on.

“He’s got such a great ability in my mind of demonstrating the care for the players but being able to be candid with them,” McVay said.

In his first season with the Clippers, Leonard is averaging 26.9 points, 7.3 rebounds and 5 assists per game. The Clippers are in second place in the Western Conference, behind the top seeded Lakers.
