Speaking of essentially the most hyped teams ahead of the 2022-23 NBA season, the Los Angeles Clippers rank high on this list. After last season’s ups and downs, the Clippers shall be hoping to make a surprising comeback this season.
Furthermore, they’re in the proper position to point out the world their full strength. They’ve signed John Wall, who will serve the role of floor general for the team. Adding to the indisputable fact that each Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are healthy, it’s a bit of great news for the Clippers.
The truth is, Paul George even praised Kawhi for looking in mid-season form in a recent hype video for the Clippers’ Twitter account. All things considered, the ceiling of the Clippers is looking incredibly high for next season.
But on a serious note, the Clippers are still depending lots on Kawhi’s performance. If the 2x NBA Finals MVP can stay healthy and play at his best, then the Clippers could even be considered a title favorite.
NBA insider Marc J. Spear had some interesting points about this. His biggest query was if he can really stay healthy for your entire season or not.
“There’s a whole lot of Clippers buzz, a whole lot of Clippers talk. … All this Clippers talk starts and ends with Kawhi Leonard and if he’s healthy, this team is special. But what number of games is it gonna be? What number of games is he gonna rest? I’m interested in Kawhi.”
Kawhi has all the time been a really talented player, and he has won several accolades as well. But his ability to remain healthy has all the time been his weak point.
The Klaw tends to rest for a whole lot of games in the course of the regular season. This strategy might be best for him to be well-rested before the NBA playoffs. But sometimes, this results in him missing a couple of more games than required.
