I'll bet he could palm an entire deck sideways

I know that folks like Denis Behr, Ken Krenzel, and Larry Jennings have reputations for having really large hands, but can any of them match up to the Toronto Raptors' Kawhi Leonard?

Years ago Paul Pierce (Capt. Boston Celtics) came to my workplace as he was the one chosen to sell tee shirts at the flagship store the next day for charity.
He ducked to get in the door of my office and when he shook my hand, most of my arm was gone. BTW, he couldn't have cared less about the tour of the plant....

If you read Gaultier's Magic Without Apparatus, you fill find reference to Monsieur Latapie, who could palm a deck in his hand sideways.

I remember seeing a video of Gary Kurtz doing a Tenkai palm. He has huge hands, and he might could palm a deck sideways.

He might have been able to Tenkai palm a deck (not difficult), but I was referring to a sideways classic palm. Very difficult.

Jerry did have large hands. So did Jennings, Krenzel, and others. But I never met anyone who could palm a deck sideways.
