2011 — Kawhi Leonard over Kyrie Irving
Unlike the 2010 selection, this one looked on lockdown a couple years ago but might be back up for discussion now, depending on what you think of Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, Klay Thompson, or Kemba Walker — quite a quartet. We’ll stick with Leonard thanks to his all world defense in addition to ever efficient and robot-like scoring abilities.
Kawhi has a career 60% true shooting percentage, absurd for a player with his volume. He is also an NBA champion and was the best player on the Spurs that season and a deserving Finals MVP.
