NBA is often described as something of a brotherhood. The players might have gone to other teams, but that bond has remained. Towns, who never played for the Clippers, had a fun time with them. This shows us that being from different teams doesn’t prevent you from being friends.

Kawhi Leonard is what the Clippers need now

The duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George drive this Los Angeles Clippers team. Last year, they were in the Conference Finals, but Leonard’s injury scuppered further plans. They ended up losing to the Phoenix Suns 4-2. Leonard made his fifth All-Star appearance and was named into the All-NBA First team, but his ACL tear ruled him out from playing the next season.

George too was injured for an extended period but came back during the Play-In tournament. They ended up losing to the New Orleans Pelicans, which capped off a very disappointing season for them. Kawhi’s return next year might just make them contenders again.
