so you are saying it was good for the team to sit Leonard correct? it is what Leonard stated as well:

"But my team is doing a great job right now of holding their own. A lot of people stepped up in the process, and it's going to be great for us in the long run."

if it were the playoffs I don't think Leonard would be sitting at all. so, in essence, they are sitting Leonard at this point to allow the team to develop.... and can afford to since they have been winning. If Spurs had a losing record mid November Leonard would have been playing.
