  OKLAHOMA CITY — If the San Antonio Spurs fell off a cliff somewhere in the course of their second-round playoff series, it was because the Oklahoma City Thunder pushed them. Players age.

  Kawhi Leonard is a unique talent due to his brilliance on both ends of the floor. But his uniqueness goes beyond this. He just finished second in the MVP voting, but he doesn’t carry himself like a superstar. We’re not used to seeing this, and it’s honestly refreshing. Leonard walks around the floor the same way he did when …
