Talking about his offensive strength he is an elite isolation scorer at all 3 levels and a strong spot-up shooter. Kawhi can pull up pretty much every shot from inside the arc and also shoots 3. He can shoot off the dribble and still shoot when he is being heavily guarded. In defense, he is an excellent on-ball defender and rebounder, physically strong player, and inconsistent rim protector. He makes use of his body pretty well both defensively and offensively.
