Video: Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, Clippers joke while going fishing
George and Leonard are huge fans of fishing, and it appears their new teammates are as well:
Team bonding was off the hook, but now we've got bigger fish to fry. 🎣 pic.twitter.com/GJv4qZvGOP
— LA Clippers (@LAClippers) September 24, 2019
The 2019-20 season is slowly approaching. The Clippers won 48 games last season without having an All-Star on the roster. Now, LA has two of the best players in the world. You can imagine just how lethal the Clippers are going to be on both sides of the ball with Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the mix.
The Clippers also have good depth, but they will ultimately go as far as Leonard and George can guide them.
Leonard averaged 26.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists for the Toronto Raptors last season. He shot 49.6 percent from the field, 37.1 percent from beyond the arc, 85.4 percent from the free-throw line and won his second Finals MVP after leading the Raptors to a six-game series win over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.
George, meanwhile, put up 28.0 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game in 2018-19 on the Oklahoma City Thunder while shooting 43.8 percent overall, 38.6 percent from the 3-point line and 83.9 percent from the charity stripe.
As they did last season, Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams will anchor the Clippers’ bench. It’s going to be a lot of fun watching LA play next season, and there may be some more fishing trips in store.
