Rumor: The outrageous claims about Paul George and Clippers, via Chris Broussard
Broussard is also reporting that some Clippers players had problems with the special treatment George has gotten from head coach Doc Rivers:
"I've been told some of the Clippers role players actually think they're as good as Paul George. They're having problems w/ the special treatment he's gotten from Doc Rivers. They can handle Kawhi getting special treatment bc for the most part he delivered." — @Chris_Broussard pic.twitter.com/bGY7d3B8D4

The Clippers had an epic collpase in the second round of the playoffs against the Denver Nuggets. Los Angeles was up 3-1 before losing three straight games at Walt Disney World.
Both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard were awful in Game 7. Neither forward scored in the fourth quarter, and George even hit the top of the backboard on one of his 3-point attempts from the corner.
There could be major changes this offseason for the Clippers. Leonard is a two-time Finals MVP, so he’s not getting traded under any circumstance. However, he may be the only player untouchable in trade talks, although it would surprise a lot of people in the NBA if George is traded.
Since we have already had reports stating that Montrezl Harrell and George got into an argument at Disney World, it’s easy to assume Harrell is one of the guys who thinks he’s better than PG-13 and upset with the treatment the small forward is getting from Rivers.
It’s going to be very interesting to see what happens with the Clippers this offseason.
