K.Leonard says he can keep improving
San Antonio Express-News Blog:
By all accounts, except maybe his own, small forward Kawhi Leonard enjoyed a standout rookie season for the Spurs last year.
He averaged 7.9 points and 5.2 rebounds, collected more double-doubles than all but three first-year players, and started 53 games — including all 14 of the Spurs’ postseason contests.
At season’s end, he was named to the league’s All-Rookie first team, only the second Spurs’ player to garner that laurel since Tim Duncan did it in 1997.
And Leonard did it all in a lockout-shortened season, without the benefit of a summer league, full training camp or practically any practice ? time at all.
