Kevin Garnett is one of the fiercest competitors in NBA history.
Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers got to experience that up close when he led Garnett and the Boston Celtics to an NBA title in 2007-08.
Rivers now coaches one of the quietest superstars to ever grace the NBA in Kawhi Leonard, though to hear him talk about the two, there's more in common than there is that separates them.
It may be an odd comparison, but the veteran coach feels confident in his assessment since he's seen both players up close for long enough now.
