May 14, 2013; San Antonio, TX, USA; San Antonio Spurs small forward Kawhi Leonard (2) dunks over Golden State Warriors small forward Harrison Barnes (40) in the third quarter in game five of the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs at the AT

SF Kawhi Leonard
14.7 PPG | 1.5 APG | 9.2 RPG | 1.5 SPG

What can’t you say about Kawhi Leonard. This is his second year in the league and he is on his way to conference finals number two.  This kid, yes kid, just amazes me every time I see him player, whether it be in person on on the tube.  He just goes out and plays the game.  No need to talk to the referees after every single play, he just plays.  In this series, Leonard improved in all areas from a series ago.  His points went up two, rebound +1.9 as well shooting percentage, not much of a change but it went up a few points.  Game five and game six of this series was really the changer for Leonard and he seemed more confident in shooting the ball.  In game five he helped lift the Spurs to a win with 17 points and 3-of-4 from behind the arc.  It was a game he needed to counter with the great defense he has been playing.  Since game two, Leonard has really put a strangle hold on Klay Thompson.  He made life for Thompson miserable.  He is a hard worker and the scary thing is, he will continue to get better.  Final Grade: A+
