Kawhi Leonard, 2014 Finals MVP and currently the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, has yet to make an all-star team in his career. The fifth year stud is putting up career highs in points per game (20.7), field goal percentage (51.9%), three-point percentage (50.0%), free-throw percentage (88.7%), and assists per game (2.7). We're approaching the halfway mark of the season and Kawhi is seriously flirting with putting up the NBA's second ever 50-50-90 season, which is shooting 50% from the floor, 50% from deep and 90% from the line.
The numbers back up what Spurs fans have seen and accepted as fact, that Kawhi is amazing with no holes in his game -- he's a complete player, hand-forged by Tim Duncan at his BlackJack Speed Shop. The problem is that Leonard is currently trailing Draymond Green for the third starting frontcourt spot on the West's All-Star team by a little more than 1000 votes.
