Kawhi Leonard comments on the statements that he is the best player in the world right now


For the first time in their franchise history, the Toronto Raptors will play in the NBA finals against the defending champions Golden State Warriors. Despite the fact, that Bucks were considered as a better team on paper after their dominant regular season, the Raptors made proper adjustments after losing the first 2 games and won four straight.

It's also important to stress out that the Raptors have the MVP of the playoffs so far in Kawhi Leonard, who transcended his game and is showing extraordinary dominance on both ends of the floor. It's also fair to admit Kawhi's game fairly resembles the one of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant and if you said he was currently the best player in the world, you wouldn't be wrong.

In game 6 against the Bucks, Kawhi displayed incredible versatility with 27 points, 17 rebounds, and 7 assists. After the game, Toronto Raptors president and the man who makes all the moves Masai Ujiri said Kawhi is the best player in the world right now. At the press conference after the game, was asked to comment on the statement, however, he simply said it's all team effort and his job as a professional is to adapt to whatever his team needs from him.
