San Antonio Spurs All-Star and reigning Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard has made enormous strides in every year he’s been in the NBA. He’s getting recognition as a potential MVP candidate this year and could very well win the DPOY again.
However, there’s one Spur who thinks Leonard still has a ways to go.
"I don't think he has hit his prime yet which is kind of scary" Matt Bonner on Kawhi Leonard #Spurs

Considering Matt Bonner is a two-time NBA Champion and one of the all-time great redheads, that comment holds a lot of weight. But in all seriousness, if Bonner is on to something here then Leonard could be scary good over the next several years. Keep in mind that Leonard is only 24 years old and some guys don’t hit their primes until about 26 or 27.
Yeah, Leonard could be an even scarier monster in only a couple seasons.
