When you were 15 years old, did you know what you “wanted to be in life” or knew what type of career you could have? I’m assuming the answer was NO and it’s still NO.

MTV’s Rob Dyrdek sat down with Kawhi Leonard to discuss his childhood and career and Leonard said when he was 15 he used to look at the worst bench players in the league and think if he worked hard enough he could be as good as one of those players.  Well, I would say winning NBA Finals MVP showed he’s as good as those players.  It’s an accomplishment that only 1 of the 3 players (MJ, Iverson, Melo) he looked up to as a kid have done.
