In the words of DJ Khaled, "Major key alert!"
It's the old cliche that high school coaches tell their team when they are not having a winning season. "It's not about winning or losing, it's about blah blah blah." In the Spurs case, that statement might hold some water at this point of the season.
Call me biased, but my vote goes to the undisputed, best two-way player in the game, Kawhi Leonard. Say that last part in Bruce Buffer's voice and imagine Kawhi holding up a championship belt.

It is interesting to find players in this current generation, with traces of Manu in their game. James Harden, DeAngelo Russell and many more have come out and said Ginobili has influenced so much of how they play. In hindsight, Manu should have trademarked the euro step when he had the chance - can you say, royalties?
