Every once in a while, Kawhi Leonard does something that makes you think his launch into the NBA superstar stratosphere is nigh.

This violent one-handed slam over a helpless Serge Ibaka in the opening seconds of Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night was one of those moments.

The Spurs would go on to win in overtime, 112-107, securing their second consecutive Finals berth and the sixth of the Gregg Popovich-Tim Duncan era.
