24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Let’s be honest, Kawhi Leonard didn’t get into much of a rhythm due to injuries last season and still came away with the Defensive Player of the Year award. This offseason the 24-year-old trained harder than ever and stated that he wanted to be an All-Star and an MVP in the league.
Well the Spurs looked like a new team on Wednesday night and it wasn’t because of the addition of LaMarcus Aldridge. In a game which featured four reigning All-Stars Leonard shined brightest. The Defensive Player of the Year looked like a legitimate superstar against the Thunder as he went off for 32 points (career-high), 8 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks in a 112-106 loss.
