Kawhi Leonard – who’s averaging 35 points per game (33% usage percentage, 86% true shooting percentage) with seven rebounds and four assists per game – has been the best player of the 2017 NBA playoffs so far. His Spurs lead the Grizzlies, 2-0, and he has a full win share already. Nobody else has more than half a win share.
Memphis coach David Fizdale, via Grizzlies.com:
He was standing next to me the other night, and he wasn’t breathing. He wasn’t breathing. So, I’m going to check the rulebook and find out if robots are allowed to play in the NBA. Because somehow Pop and them have figured out – they know something I don’t know. I think he bleeds, like, antifreeze.
Fizdale didn’t know you could use robots in the playoffs? He got rooked again.
