Kawhi Leonard of the Toronto Raptors wins NBA Finals MVP award

Kawhi Leonard of the Toronto Raptors capped off an epic playoff run with more than just the NBA Championship. He also just claimed the award for Finals MVP.

Leonard is also only the third player to win the Finals MVP Award with two teams. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Lebron James are the others.
