Kawhi Leonard is officially San Antonio's most important player

To his name, Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard has an NBA Finals MVP, one ring and a Defensive Player of the Year trophy. He's one of the best players in the league, and the most important player on a title favorite. But according to Sports on Earth's Michael Pina, what we're seeing now is just the beginning:"What's terrifying?

Don’t discount the San Antonio Spurs too soon

The San Antonio finds themselves in sixth place in a hyper-competitive Western Conference now holding a record of 39-23.  While most teams would be ecstatic to have such a record, the Spurs are far from most teams.  This will mark the first time the team has fallen outside the top two seeds of the Western Conference since the 2009-10 season.   In addition to the drop in standings...
