Kawhi Leonard is the best player in the world according to Charles Barkley

He did it again! NBA Hall of Fame player and now TNT NBA analyst Charles Barkley has always been a guy who has had absolutely no problem with speaking his mind regardless if others agree with him or not.

Tonight was no different. During the half time show of the game between the San Antonio Spurs & the Cleveland Cavaliers, Barkley shared why he believes that Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard is the best player in the world.

For the better part of a decade most would tend to agree that LeBron James has been the best player on the planet, with guys like Kevin Durant & now Stephen Curry joining the disussion.

Barkley explains why he believe Leonard is the best. "Steph is the best offensive player in the NBA, LeBron was the best player for the last 10 years or more, but at his age I would take Kawhi Leonard over any basketball player in the world right now.

"If you look at both ends of the floor, like I say LeBron's older, but if I needed one player today to start my franchise I'm going with Kawhi Leonard."
