If this guy was getting consistent guard play... forget about it.
Truly a special player.

I have no idea who Leonard was in college...Did he create his own shot off the dribble. Was he a post player or a perimeter player or both?

Similar. Kawhi was maybe a little more skilled.

RE: Precious vs. Kawhi
Guys like Kawhi, Steve Nash or Steph who made dramatic improvements in their game and lept into stardom. You cant project anyone to them by comparing the production at the same early stage. That kind of improvement is an anomoly.

Precious vs. Kawhi
But is Precious a self-proclaimed “fun guy” like Kawhi and what is his laugh like?

Not overly skilled and I do not think anybody projected him to become the player he is today. However, if you watch anything about him he is just a relentless worker. When people told him where his game needed improving he listened and then went to the gym and did rep after rep after to improve that facet.

In that regard it seems like Precious is very much like him, willing to listen, take direction and then get in the gym to improve. Precious has already become one of my favorite players to ever wear a Tiger uniform because he plays so hard, does not whine, he just goes out competes and gets it done.

Athletically maybe but he is already way more skilled in regards to dribbling and shooting than Amare ever was.

What is eerie about it? Most of their stats are very different and they are not even the same type of player, and it is Precious' freshman season.

He was exactly the same player as he is now, but obviously better. He improved his outside shooting over the years. Him and Precious don't play the same way at all.

Very different? Key stats like ppg and rpg are almost identical. Shooting percentages are off mainly because Precious shoots more shots close to the rim.

I compared Kawhi's 2nd season because they were the same age and both will leave after that year.

RE: Precious vs. Kawhi
They are definitely similar stat-wise, but play-wise he reminds me of Aaron Gordon. Took me awhile to finally figure out who Precious reminded me of.

I believe an announcer one game compared him to Paschal Siakam. If he continues to develop his shot then that seems to be a very similar player.
