    IMO -- I see no reason why Kawhi shouldn't be a top-five MVP candidate all season. His D is both NBA 2K MT subtle and awe-inspiring. You don't have to know anything about pick-and-roll coverages or NBA defenses to get that he's a force. Leonard's a guy you can build a franchise around. Maybe not up to the Duncan level, but the Spurs are in good hands with his giant claws around to protect the perimeter.I'm with you that the particular matchups against the top teams do not automatically lend themselves to the Spurs favor. But as we've learned over the years, you just never know what the season will bring. This is a perfect spot for Pop, Kawhi and LaMarcus. Let everyone else gobble up the attention. At some point, you're going to have to deal with these guys and it won't be fun.ZILLER: Amen. It seems like even without Tim, the Spurs are content to lurk outside of the spotlight and knock someone over when they least expect it.<!-- START NBA NEWSLETTER SNIPPET FULL WIDTH -->SIGN UP FOR OUR NBA NEWSLETTERGet news, links and Ziller's hottakes in your inbox every weekday morning.

    point guard. The Clippers can give them trouble too, as we remember from two years ago.Back to NBA 2K18 MT Kawhi. I still think he's underrated by much of the basketball world. We make note when he gets burned these days because it's so rare. I can't remember the last time we had this good a defender in the MVP race. Probably Dwight Howard circa 2011. LeBron was always a great defender but was far more well-known for his offense. Before Dwight, you probably have to go back to KG and Tim Duncan for a legitimate defense-first MVP. The Spurs have some offensive issues, but Kawhi's shutdown abilities erase a lot of that.FLANNERY: They sure do, and considering the way we value defense these days -- still not enough

    This might be a transition year for the Spurs<h3 classmeta">Jesus GomezWith Tim Duncan now retired, th NBA 2K MT Spurs must begin moving into a new era. Pounding the Rock season preview This might be a transition year for the Spurs ZILLER: I'm fully on board with the Spurs as a top team -- a tippy-top team and I think they'll win somewhere in the neighborhood of 60 games again. Kawhi Leonard is an MVP favorite for me, LaMarcus Aldridge is really good and Parker is still an A-minus point guard at worst. Plus Danny Green, Patty Mills, Pau, Manu and Tim -- err, uh, sorry. David Lee? Yeah. Plenty of complements to the main pieces.I'm only worried about the Spurs in opposition to the Warriors and Cavaliers because those teams combine an unstoppable small forward with an unstoppable
