LeBron James has been a star since high school. He was the No. 1 pick, he has two Finals MVP awards with two different teams, he now has his own TV show, he's shooting a movie, and he is in one of the largest markets in the U.S. LBJ has won everywhere he's been and been the best player in the world for over 10 years. LeBron also used his abilities to get the Lakers to trade for Anthony Davis.
Kawhi Leonard is younger but also has two Finals MVP awards with two different teams, he is known now as one of the best, if not the best, two-way player in the NBA, but he isn't as flashy and likes to keep to himself. He isn't out there making movies or playing the role of coach and GM the way LeBron does. Hell, he's even endorsed by New Balance while LeBron is with Nike.
The Lakers have always been known as the more significant team in L.A., the big brother if you will.
Adam tries to make a case that the pressure needs to be more on Kawhi Leonard to bring a championship to L.A. because he's the star in his prime, he's the one who just left a championship team to come home, and grabbed Paul George in the process.
The top two paragraphs though are the reasons that LBJ though has more pressure to win and win quickly rather than Kawhi.
