Leonard was named the NBA's Defensive Player of the Year on Thursday, Howard Beck of Bleacher Report reports.

Leonard beat out Golden State's Draymond Green by a slim margin, garnering fewer first-place votes than Green but tallying significantly more second and third-place votes. He becomes the first wing player to take home the award since Metta World Peace - then Ron Artest - in 2004. Leonard, last season's Finals MVP, missed a total of 18 games during the regular season, but that did not seem to impact his candidacy.

Leonard continued his scoring barrage Tuesday, finishing with 26 points for the second straight game and also putting up two rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block, and four three-pointers in just 24 minutes.

Leonard's only buggaboo in fantasy is the fact that he always misses a good chunk of games due to some Spursian injury. A Spursian injury is a normal injury for anyone else, but for a Spurs player, it's an injury that is going to require a prolonged stint in street clothes. San Antonio is always looking for ways to keep their players healthy for the long run, so they hold players out longer on injuries that other teams would be more comfortable bringing a player back on less rest, and they often rest players or give them reduced minutes. Leonard has scored 20-plus points in each of his last three games, and the most insane thing about that is that he's only played 24 minutes or less in each of those games. It's starting to get a little scary imagining how good Kawhi could be if he ever played 80 games in a season and averaged over 30 minutes per game the whole way.
