I have been thinking that Toronto's best lineup this season would feature Kawhi at the 2
That's an INSANE amount of length, defense, and a ton of offensive weapons
So the question...
Is there any reason Kawhi couldn't play the 2 full time? Apparently the Raptor coach spoke to him about it and he likes the idea
He certainly can if he wants to. Leonard played the 2 here a lot with Danny Green playing the 3. I doubt playing the 2 full time would be a good idea though. That would depend upon whomever you are playing and whatever matchups you have that night.
It will be interesting to see how your offense pans out with Leonard. His best offensive years here he was basically playing point-forward and breaking people down 1 on 1. Now he is going to be a little more dependent upon Lowry and Van Vleet to get his shots I'm guessing. He has always moved well without the ball but its been a little while since he has had to do it consistently.
