Kawhi Leonard Vaults Himself Into The NBA MVP Conversation

This is source I found from another site, main source you can find in last paragraph

The borderline-terrifying notion about the 2015 version of Leonard is how much offensive potential the San Diego State product still has.

He averaged a career-high 16.5 points per outing this year, but Leonard hasn't displayed a consistent desire to attack the rim off the bounce. Perhaps it's not that he doesn't want to, it's that the Spurs' offensive system does not yet call for Leonard to create for himself often enough.

Soon, that time will arrive. Being able to challenge a defender while preparing to overcome a larger body at the rim is Leonard's next, most important step in his development.

Plus, should Leonard develop an ability to hit unassisted long-range shots, defenders will be forced to make an unenviable decision: Play him tight at the perimeter, or allow Leonard to attack the rim?

He's already a tremendous defender. If Leonard becomes a more versatile asset on the offensive end, he'll join the MVP conversation in 2015-16.
