Steve Kerr Says Kawhi Leonard Is Best 2-Way Player in NBA

Kawhi Leonard has quietly taken his place among the top 5 players in the NBA, and that fact isn’t lost on Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

Despite having the triple-double machine Draymond Green on his roster, Kerr explained why Leonard is the best two-way player in the game.

“We always talk about two-way players and how important it is, especially in the modern NBA, where you can’t hide a guy at either end,” Kerr told Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area. “He’s probably the best two-way player in the league now.

“You have to deal with him in all kinds of different ways. He’s a terror on defense, and offensively he’s gotten better and better. His 3-point shooting is really, really good. And he’s so strong that he can score around the rim. He’s a great player, and it’s kind of slowly but surely become his team in a lot of ways.”

Maybe Kerr wanted to light a small fire under Draymond entering Monday night's matchup. We shall see.
