LeBron James says Kawhi Leonard defends him better than anyone

While Stephen Curry is the two-time reigning NBA MVP, there is little doubt that LeBron James is still one of the most dominant forces in the league after what he did to knock off the Golden State Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals.

With that being the case, James was asked which player currently in the league does the best job of slowing him down on the offensive end of the floor during his appearance on Uninterrupted's 'Open Run' podcast and he provided a rather appropriate response to the inquiry.

"Kawhi Leonard," James responded. "Kawhi Leonard, he’s solid. He’s solid, solid at that end of the floor. He’s very, very solid. I like him. I like the kid."

Considering that Leonard has won the last two Defensive Player of the Year awards, it's hard for anyone to argue with LeBron's opinion on the matter despite the fact that the San Antonio Spurs and Cleveland Cavaliers only square off twice a year.
