In the clip below, you can hear Rose make his case for why he believes Kawhi is now the undisputed number one guy in the league.
”I can’t go in to this years training camp and act like Kawhi Lenard didn’t just go to the Raptors, and win the championship, Finals MVP, shoot down the Philadelphia 76ers, take out the Greek Freak, take out the Golden State Warriors without KD, and LeBron’s team didn’t make the playoffs? I gotta give Kawhi the number one spot right now…the king of the court has to be Kawhi,” Rose explained.
Based on a “what have you done for me lately” approach, Rose certainly makes a great point. Lakers fans will surely be annoyed at this opinion though considering how defensive they are of their team. The Lakers are looking to bounce back this season and LeBron will be motivated to prove to people that he still has what it takes to be a champion.
