Kendrick Perkins: “Kawhi Leonard Reminds me of Michael Jordan”

WATCH: Kendrick Perkins from ESPN’s Get Up speaks on Kawhi Leonard’s defense and compares his game to Michael Jordan.

“This may sound crazy, but Kawhi Leonard reminds me of Michael Jordan,” Perkins said during a Monday appearance on ESPN’s “Get Up.”

“I’m not comparing him to Mike. But if you watch the way he plays, his style, the way he plays the game on both ends – he has a game that mimics Michael Jordan.

“It’s not all the way fancy. He gets to his spots (on the floor). He’s got nice turnarounds, big hands, palms the ball. And on the defensive end, he’s probably the best in the game.”
