Kawhi Leonard is featured on ESPN The Magazine's Analytics of the NBA Body Issue, marking the first time he has appeared solo on the publication's cover. The issue was released Friday.

Cool cover, I love how slick The Klaw looks before ESPN scientists biometric the heck out of his performance. Is that the ghost of Tobias Harris in a Orlando Magic uniform?

The article's caption reads "Forward of the Future", but should read "Forward of the Present". After averaging 20.2 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and shooting 51-percent, the San Antonio Spurs' future success rests heavily in Leonard's sizable hands. His accolades include Defensive Player of the Year, Finals MVP, and All-Defensive Team honors - proof that his greatness is now, not just for later.
