On Saturday night, Kawhi Leonard returned to the lineup after a 10 game absence so he could join his squad in once again getting cucked by the Denver Nuggets on national television. The Clippers lost 104-110 and Kawhi scored 16 in 30 minutes.
The Clippers have now lost 3 games in a row and drop to the 4th seed in the West which almost guarantees them a first round battle against LeBron and the Lakers. The Clippers are most likely going to get ejected in the first round of the playoffs. That’s disgusting.
But speaking of 4 seeds, the New York Knicks are coming off a 9-game winning streak where they were both the #3 ranked defense and #3 ranked offense in the NBA. With the Knicks defense being so dominant, there is truly no team in the East that I believe this team can’t beat in a 7 game series. The Sixers worry me a bit but yea I mean, they’re a better team top to bottom.
Kawhi Leonard was created in a lab to win titles and since arriving in Los Angeles with Paul George, he seems to be the furthest away from the Larry O’Brien trophy that he’s ever been in his career.
And Paul George…lol.
Kawhi was clearly on a minutes restriction coming back from injury so the Clippers needed PG to step up against the Nuggets on Saturday. George went 5-for-21 from the field and 3-for-8 from 3. Those 2 assists didn’t do much either.
You know who would actually be a great player to team up with?

Julius Randle is not only going to get MVP votes at the end of the season but he’s most likely going to end up with more votes than Kawhi.
The Knicks will have over $40 million in cap space and Kawhi can opt out of his contract this summer which means New York wouldn’t have to lose any assets or players in order to acquire the former Finals MVP. He can walk on over to Madison Square Garden and return to the Finals in a Knicks jersey.
The days of the Knicks being a laughing stock are over. All of these guys played against the Knicks this season and praised their defensive intensity. They praised head coach, Tom Thibodeau. This is a real program now that guys would want to participate in.
Why would Kawhi want to stay in LA with Paul George being the biggest weirdo in the NBA and the rest of those psychos like Reggie Jackson, Pat Bev and Boogie Cousins. The Clippers are a toxic work environment while the Knicks look like they’re having the time of their lives.
Don’t be shocked when Woj tweets that Kawhi Leonard is signing with the New York Knicks when free agency begins.
