The San Antonio Spurs came off one of their most successful seasons to date by winning a historic 67 games in the 2015-16 regular season. While the addition of LaMarcus Aldridge did help the team along with the big three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili the team’s success can be attributed to the stellar play of Kawhi Leonard. Since his rookie season Kawhi Leonard has improved his game every season and is now considered the best two-way player in the game. The quiet assassin does not say much as he let’s his game speak for itself and has now emerged as the most efficient player in the NBA.
With the evolution of Kawhi Leonard the Spurs are now looking to him as the leader of the team as Tim Duncan decided to retire after 19 years in the league. The San Antonio Spurs will need Kawhi Leonard not only to be efficient as a player but a more vocal leader on the court if they are to make another run at a 6th NBA title this season. With Kawhi Leonard more than willing to accept any challenge laid out before him expect the Spurs to once again be one of the best teams in the NBA this season.
