Kawhi Leonard is the perfect basketball athlete. Look at the size of those hands! It is as if he is the fulfilment of a sporting evolutionary niche - the sum of all the natural selection pressures to which the basketball population is exposed. To expect other members of the species to compete against Kawhi is like asking a mosquito to battle against a spider. Each might have their strengths but if the game is spinning a web, there’s no contest.
Strange then, that we insist that our children are all capable of achieving ‘anything’ provided they eat their brussel sprouts and do their homework.
