Right now most of us believe he can be like Specer Hawes but with better defense. and Maybe, just maybe could be like Tyson Chandler. Leonard is incredibly athletic. he does freaking cartwheels as a 7 footer. which shows you he is incredibly athletic.
He needs a proper vet to show him how to play in the NBA.
Personally i'm hoping Paul Allen pays for either Hakeem, Larry Bird, Shaq, Kareem, Sabonis, Walton, Robinson, Yao or Ewing to teach him over a few sessions this summer. Or all of them. PA has the money to spend and this kid can be a good center. At worst a see him as a serviceable backup C. But I think he can be a good starter with the proper right teachers.
So overall he isn't anywhere near star quality yet but maybe just maybe one day can be. Not super star, not all star but a star. If I could hope for one thing to happen over the summer (other than rest for the our team, Babbit and Nolan are gone and we get 3-4 good/great FAs) That PA spends money for this to happen. He has potential and we know he isn't the next Larry Bird but with the proper work and effort he can be a good starting C.
Let's be honest Leonard will probably be our most likely COTF. We sadly won't likely be getting Pekovic, we would need to spend too much. Not getting Howard or Bynum. We could take a gamble on Splitter or Mozgov (who we should target in the FA. But not for big $ and while they have potential to be Starting Cs I just don't see them panning out.
What is everyone's thoughts?
