The Spurs entered the 2012 strike shortened season with the exact same big three from a year ago, and many critics, as well as sports writers had San Antonio written off as a team contending for a championship. Tim Duncan was 35 years old, while Manu Ginobili was 34, and both appeared to be on the downside of their careers. Tony Parker was just 29 years of age, but one thing the team lacked was youth, and athletic ability off the bench.
San Antonio has always been known for drafting the right players to fit the system of head coach Gregg Popovich, and on draft day 2011, the team acquired Kawhi Leonard from the Pacers. Indiana selected the 6-7, 225 pound forward with the 14th overall pick.
The Spurs loved Leonard's length, and has a wingspan of 7-3 inches. With the squad lacking a young, athletic small forward, and defensive stopper at the position, the team made the decision to make the trade, and upgrade in that particular area.
Leonard responded by having a solid rookie season, and has been compared to Bruce Bowen as a defender. During the regular season, the 20 years old did a excellent job in head to head matchups with Kevin Durant, while holdng the superstar to 22 points per contest, and six points below Duran't average.
Will Leonard be able to contain Durant in the Western Conferencde Finals? The series could come down to whether or not the rookie can contain the superstar, and make each offensive trip down the floor a difficult one. Durant is going to get his points, but if Leonard can make him a volume inefficient shooter, the Spurs have a great shot to make it back to the NBA Finals. thunder vs spurs game online and series gets underway on May 27.
