Kawhi Leonard, Brandon Davies

The defending champion Spurs were taking on the lowly 76ers last night, but they were missing Tony Parker (ribs) and Tim Duncan (old). It didn’t really matter, though, as Kawhi Leonard scored a game-high 26 points and snatched 11 rebounds in the 109-103 win. Read More »

Kawhi Leonard, Joe Johnson

After Friday night’s 121-92 victory over the Timberwolves, Spurs wing and 2014 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard said the conjunctivitis that kept him out of every preseason game but one, plus San Antonio’s first game of the regular season, is still affecting his vision.

Manu Ginobili, Patty Mills, Kawhi Leonard

If you’re not familiar, H-E-B is a privately owned grocery chain based in San Antonio, Texas. The Spurs, naturally, are a perfect for their ad campaigns, and a new set recently debuted featuring Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills. In a couple of them, Kawhi even cracks a smile (!!), and we get to see more of Duncan’s deadpan delivery. Read More »

Jeremy Lin must not watch game film. Just a few days removed from swiping Chris Paul’s dribble to help seal a crunch-time win, Kawhi Leonard was back to his thieving antics last night. Watch the San Antonio Spurs’ Finals MVP rip the ball from Lin on successive possessions in his team’s 93-80 win over the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center on Friday. Read More »

GIF: Kawhi Leonard Packs It On Klay Thompson

Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard

San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and Golden State’s Klay Thompson have a lot in common. Both came out in the 2011 NBA Draft; both have a hard “K” in their forename; both have exceeded expectations since getting drafted (No. 11 for Klay and No. 15 for Kawhi), and both are elite on each side of the ball. Last night, during a slow-moving fast break for the Spurs, Kawhi even jamed it on Klay. Read More »

Kawhi Leonard: “I’m Pretty Sure I’ll Be In A Spurs Jersey For My Whole Life”

Kawhi Leonard, Blake Griffin

Picture Kawhi Leonard in anything but the silver and black of the Borg-like Spurs. We bet you can’t — unless you’re a Lakers fan unwilling to embrace reality (Leonard is allergic to the Hollywood glitz and glam). That’s why San Antonio’s decision not to offer the 2014 NBA Finals MVP an extension by the Oct. 31 deadline was so hard to comprehend. But Leonard knows what the Spurs are doing, and — after leading them to a 89-85 win at Staples Center last night — he made it clear he’s not likely to go anywhere in restricted free agency next summer.

Video: Kawhi Leonard Rips Chris Paul’s Crossover In Crunch-Time

Kawhi Leonard, Chris Paul

Plays like this are why Kawhi Leonard is so valuable to the San Antonio Spurs despite impaired vision. And even better, he certainly didn’t shoot like he couldn’t see tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers. The reigning Finals MVP scored 26 points (10-18 FGs) in the champs’ 89-85 come-from-behind victory at Staples Center, and made the game’s key defensive play by ripping Chris Paul’s dribble from a near standstill when the home team trailed by three with with under a minute remaining.

Kawhi Leonard Says Vision Is Still Hampered By Preseason Eye Infection

Kawhi Leonard

We’ve never played in a NBA game, but imagine that compromised vision would be even more of a hindrance against the greatest defenders in the world than it is while running pick-up at the local rec center. Recent play of the San Antonio Spurs’ Kawhi Leonard confirms that assumption. Struggling since his return from a preseason eye infection, the reigning Finals MVP says he’s still suffering the effects of his illness. Read More »

Report: Spurs & Kawhi Leonard Unlikely To Reach Extension By Deadline

Kawhi Leonard, Peter Holt

Spurs wing and 2014 NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard was the No. 15 pick in the 2011 Draft. So he’s due an extension before tonight’s midnight deadline. According to league sources, ESPN’s Marc Stein reports the Spurs and Leonard are unlikely to agree on a new deal and he’ll become a restricted free agent in the summer of 2015. Read More »
