Last season's NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant, came in at number three just ahead of two up-and-coming stars in Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo and New York's Kristaps Porzingis.

Six through ten included Joel Embiid, Russell Westbrook, Ben Simmons, Leonard, and the Houston Rockets' James Harden.

Lonzo Ball, the only 2017 draft pick to make the list, along with Kyrie Irving, Klay Thompson, Damian Lillard, and Jimmy Butler round out the top 15. 

In just nine games this year, Leonard is averaging 16.2 points per game along with 4.7 rebounds in only 23 minutes a night.

The Spurs next play on the road again the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.
