Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard

San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and Golden State’s Klay Thompson have a lot in common. Both came out in the 2011 NBA Draft; both have a hard “K” in their forename; both have exceeded expectations since getting drafted (No. 11 for Klay and No. 15 for Kawhi), and both are elite on each side of the ball.

Klay Thompson, Chris Bosh

Klay Thompson and Chris Bosh are playing under heightened expectations in 2014-2015.

And no longer in the shadow of LeBron James, the All-Star lefty must resume the alpha dog status he sacrificed four years ago for the Miami Heat to remain an Eastern Conference contender.

The pair were named Players of the Week in their respective conferences after leading the Warriors and Heat to undefeated records. Read More »
