Nate Robinson on Kawhi: ‘He’s like a robotic Michael Jordan'(VIDEO)

The 2019 NBA playoffs showed the world that Kawhi Leonard is still one of the best players in the game. He had 14 games of 30 points or more, which is the most since LeBron James did it in 2017; he helped the Raptors win their first NBA title, and he walked away with his second Finals MVP.  Leonard now joins Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and LeBron James as the only players to win Finals MVP with multiple teams.

Before playing in only nine games last season with the Spurs, due to injury, Leonard was considered by many to be the best two-way player in the game, but at this point, he might be the best player in the game, so says NBA free agent Nate Robinson.

“He’s definitely one of the best, if not the best,” Robinson told Paul Gant at the American Flag Football League Championship in New Jersey on Sunday.  “I’ve been telling people the whole time before this season when he came into the league he was like a Michael Jordan type player, but he’s like more of a robot,  so he’s like a robotic Michael Jordan. I call him “Terminator Jordan” for a reason. People were laughing, ‘All yeah, you don’t know what you’re talking about.’ Ok cool, now look at what he’s doing, you crazy.”

Leonard will be a free agent in the offseason, and at this point, no one knows where he will go. However, if it were up to Robinson, Leonard would stay in Toronto.

“I don’t know; I hope he stays in Toronto,” Robinson said. “Whatever team he’s on, is definitely gonna have a chance to win championships.”

These playoffs have definitely set Leonard apart, and he has a legitimate argument as the best player in the game. At times, he single-handily willed Toronto through the playoffs.

No matter where Leonard goes, the Raptors can be happy that they got a championship out of the deal.

What would AFFL’s Godspeed do with the $1 million prize money?(VIDEO)

It all comes down to this. After weeks of playing, we now have the Ultimate Final(championship game) all set in the American Flag Football League.

The Ultimate Final will take place at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houstson on Thursday(NFL Network) as Fighting Cancer battles Godspeed. The winning team will take home $1 million.

Last Saturday, in the Dual Finals, which took place at the Sellick Bowl on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis. Godspeed, who are led by former NFL RB Justin Forsett, defeated Chad Johnson’s Team Ocho 28-12 on the pro side of the bracket, while on the amateur side, Fighting Cancer beat The Money Team 35-26.

Who wins it all? Fighting Cancer has a great team, and has more experience in terms of Flag Football, but after watching Godspeed last week, I think Godspeed takes home the title. Their QB Seneca Wallace, who played 10 years in NFL, has been precise in this tournament. Wallace threw for 315 yards and four touchdowns against Team Ocho last Saturday. Plus, they have speed with Jahvid Best, who played for the Lions and competed in the 100m sprint at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Best scored two touchdowns against Team Ocho. Furthermore, Jason Avant, who played for the Eagles, Chiefs, and Panthers, was very impressive against Team Ocho(8 catches, 116, 1 TD), and has been impressive throughout this tournament. Godspeed has too much talent and too much speed, but that’s why they play the game.

You play to win the game, and you play for the money, so after the Dual Finals, we caught up with Godspeed and asked the question, “What are you going to do with the money?”
