Kawhi Leonard is as important and vital to the Clippers as LeBron James is to the Lakers. The two are destined to meet in the Western Conference Finals later this year.
Fortunately, Kawhi won’t have to carry the entire burden of leading a team to a championship by himself. The Clippers’ addition of Paul George last off-season has proved extremely beneficial in the Clippers’ quest to win its first NBA Championship. Kawhi and PG is one of the best duos in the NBA, perhaps only behind LeBron and Anthony Davis.
The Clippers also have one of the deepest benches in the NBA. After months off, Kawhi enters the NBA bubble healthier than he was since the NBA season was postponed.
