Golub: The difference between quiet leadership and no leadership

The Daily’s Jack Golub takes a look at how Kawhi Leonard showcases some of the most important qualities of a leader

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich made waves recently when he dropped the “bombshell” news that former player Kawhi Leonard, the star who sat out a whole season with a suspect injury and refused to communicate with his team, was not a leader.  In response, Kawhi got angry and claimed he was a leader. That makes sense. He’s a star player looking to get a supermax salary; he’s not gonna say he isn’t a leader. I don’t know what Kawhi thinks or how he conducts himself in his team’s locker room.  His relatively quiet demeanor gives us a cool case study into what it takes to be a good leader.
