Due to his quickness and athleticism "Leo" excels in open court, attacking the basket in traffic and playing one-on-one. He has quick first step, good speed, athleticism and fundamentals that allow him score in the paint against anyone with very high efficiency (2PTs over 60%).
He has always been known as a lock down defender who can guard three positions (SG, SF and PG). Helps in defense with steals, blocks and charges and was named the best defensive player several times.
