Edit: Plus he's still 20! He's one of the youngest players in the league!

How is Leonard more athletic than Parsons...to say that you wouldn't even have watched Parsons play.

Guess Leonard wins this round! Will pick two more rookies to compare, and we'll see what the experts of ish think!

Parsons has shown this year to be the more versatile player.

Give Kawhi Leonard 37+ mpg and 6 three point attempts a game on a shallow team and he would be putting up alot more points.

Chandler looks like a great hustle player and with decent offense, but I'd take Leonard's defensive and offensive abilities.

Parsons. People are only picking Leonard because they are racist and don't realize how much better than him Parsons is playing

Leonard has been injured

I would still take him.


Although Parsons looks really nice this season.

I was big on Leonard prior to the draft. He runs the floor and is gonna be a great rebounder. He could even play some 4. Parsons may or may not be a better defender now, but Leonard should be an elite defender. Maybe he'll be the better rebounder, we'll see. Surprised with his jumpshot tho, as others have said.


But I think Parsons. He's already a good defender and will be a great defender. He's a jack-of-all-trades with high BBall IQ and natural feel for the game. I think he impacts the game in different ways. Leonard could make an all-star team or two in his life. I think Parsons will be pushing for them every year.


Lots of SF's in the league, with these two, George coming up, and Kirilenko back in the league.

As for now I'd take Parsons, he has proved that he's able to score on a steady level which I haven't seen from Leonard yet. And I don't think that Leonard is a better defender, if you doubt Parsons defense, go and watch some of his games against big time scorers. He's a great defender and he has proved to be a good offensive player a la scoring and passing and finally, he's a good rebounder.

If we're talking fantasy league there is no competition, Parsons is more productive.

Kawhi definitely ain't lacking athleticism and explosiveness. He can dunk in traffic and has Shawn Marion type stamina.
