Did you see the Spurs demolish The Kobeless Lakers tonight? You probably didn’t if you were a The Lakers bandwagoner, comprising about 90 percent of their fans. If you were a San Antonio fan, you might have missed what really happened and what is really happening with that team.
By design, Kawhi Leonard is becoming the best player on that team, you know, the defending champions.
Tonight, Leonard showed us an array of post moves we didn’t know he had. He punished The Lakers with those post moves, including some incredibly physical attempts where he just overpowered defenders.
Earlier this season, we saw Leonard shooting some terrible shots, some long threes. Those were to get him scoring from long distance. They are trying to make Leonard into the $15 million player he’s going to be after this season. Interesting because he’s going to have to carry San Antonio at playoff time.
