Arguably the best player to ever grace the NBA hardwood, Michael Jordan, had some flattering words to say about San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard when asked if Kawhi could score on Kawhi (stemming from the recent commercial featuring Leonard) during Jordan's basketball camp.

Jordan’s first reaction was a shrug but opened up.

“I don’t know, I assume not.”

“He’s good, he’s a great player, probably the best in the game.”

However, Jordan gave his stamp of approval when it comes to who's the best 2-way player in the league.

His answer: Kawhi!

“He is the best two-way player in the game right now.”

Boom! There you have it.

Yes, Kawhi is part of the Jordan brand but when his "Airness" speaks, everyone should listen.
