Following the Toronto Raptors’ home win over the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 on Saturday, Raptors’ forward Kawhi Leonard said he doesn’t care about being the best player in the league, per ESPN:

“I don’t really judge my game like that, I’m more of a team aspect, see what my team is doing. I just want to win. I don’t care about being the best player. I want to be the best team. I’ve always said that. Just before the season when we made the trade, Masai felt that way about me. He told me how he felt and why he made the trade. It’s turning out well now. We’re in the Finals, and we’re not done yet.”

Leonard is averaging 31.2 points, while shooting at 50.7 percent from the floor, in the postseason games.
