One Big Question for Each Western Conference NBA Team
San Antonio: Does Leonard Have Enough Help?
Kawhi Leonard is a top three player in the league and I’m confident in saying that.
He can carry a team offensively and is the best wing defender in the game, but does he have enough help around him to put the Spurs back in the Western Conference Finals?
A lot of the Spurs’ season will depend on which LaMarcus Aldridge they get. Will they get the former All-Star or a guy who is streaky on offense and a liability on the defensive end?
The Spurs brought back Patty Mills to run the point guard spot as Tony Parker recovers. Then they surprisingly brought back the 37-year-old Pau Gasol on a three-year deal.
They lost Dewayne Dedmon and Jonathan Simmons in free agency. Both of those players combined for a total of 35 minutes a night off the bench.
With the West getting better, will Mills, Aldridge, Gasol and Green be enough alongside of Leonard?
