Indeed, a very good read. To me, Kawhi is like a sponge – he absorbs and retains all the knowledge and teachings from his mentors (Engelland, Pop, Duncan, etc) and he applies it, getting better with each new experience. Then, when you expose him to the star-laden United States Olympic squad, it just presents new challenges for him to conquer. Reminds me of Admiral Yamamoto’s famous quote “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant…….”. And when people notice that Pop is excited and wild with anticipation, that translates into something very very good.
"I'm always amazed to hear of victims so badly mutilated that they have to be identified by their dental records. What I can't understand is, if they don't know who you are, how do they know who your dentist is?" - Paul Merton
