Kawhi Leonard is three wins away from guiding the Toronto Raptors to the first NBA title in the franchise’s history, by way of upset over the almighty Golden State Warriors. Leonard has some people calling him the best basketball player on the planet right now, but there was a time not long ago when people thought he wasn’t better than Jon Hood.
Back in 2009, his high school senior year, Leonard was ranked No. 57 in his recruiting class, one spot behind Hood.
Leonard went on to star at San Diego State; Hood of course went on to the University of Kentucky, and their paths went two completely directions from there.
