Amir Johnson erases Kawhi Leonard layup, life

USA TODAY Sports

He was so young, too.

We were just starting to enjoy the new-look Spurs enjoying the budding career of Kawhi Leonard when suddenly Amir Johnson of the Toronto Raptors blocked Leonard's layup, seemingly ending his life.

Leonard fell to the ground after a twisting Johnson met his layup -- unannounced, I might add -- at the apex of their jumps. Leonard fell to the ground, limbs sprawled out upon the hardwood.

Leonard is survived by his father, Tim Duncan.
