Tim Duncan is adorable celebrating this alley-oop to Kawhi Leonard

Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard are soul mates—a pair of reserved, stoic basketball superheroes who time after time put the San Antonio Spurs above themselves.

Duncan and Leonard are the two most important players on a defense that's ravaging the entire league. For them to also be the best alley-oop partnership in the game seems unfair, but it's true.
