5. Boris Diaw will never get enough credit for his impact on the Spurs in the Finals. Sure, Leonard became more aggressive over the last three games of the series on the way to being crowned Finals MVP, but equally important was the Spurs' insertion of the Flying Frenchman into the starting lineup. Diaw helped the Spurs take the zip on their ball movement to another level and played surprisingly effective defense for someone who looked like he had eaten one too many chocolate eclairs. He usually made the smart pass and perfected his positioning on both sides of the ball. His presence was every bit as important as any other San Antonio player in the Spurs' fifth title and first since 2007.
