Kawhi Leonard:

    The Los Angeles Clippers are out of the playoffs! They couldn’t overcome the Denver Nuggets in the WCSF and will now be heading back to LA. Moreover, the biggest surprise is that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George blew a 3-1 lead. As a result, NBA fans have been stripped off a chance of seeing LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard lock horns at the WCF. Leonard was averaging nearly 30 points per game in the postseason, but the story was different against the Nuggets. The Nuggets held the Klaw to just 14 points in the most important game of the series. This abysmal performance by Kawhi included him going scoreless in the fourth quarter. Combining this with PG13’s 10 point scoring...
    LeBron James sits and waits at the top of the mountain, while all of his presumed challengers keep coming up short. Friday, Sept. 18, was nearly a historic day. That’s the day the Western Conference Finals begin. For a week it looked like that series would feature the L.A. Clippers vs. the L.A. Lakers in a showdown NBA fans have salivated over for more than a year. That would mean Kawhi Leonard against LeBron James and the possibility of seeing something we haven’t seen for 35 years, with not only very likely a championship on the line (both L.A. teams would be favored over Boston or Miami), but the title of best baller alive. And yet, 17 years after James...
    The Los Angeles Clippers and the Denver Nuggets matchup has been the talk of the town now.  There were so many speculations about who will end up winning the series. Ultimately, the Nuggets took the opportunity and grabbed this series from the clutches of defeat. They recovered from a 3-1 deficit, one considered nearly impossible to rise from. Now, the people are looking for someone to blame for the Clippers disappointing loss, and it looks like one Analyst knows exactly whom to point fingers at. Is the Clippers key player the one to blame?

    Kawhi Leonard and Paul George during a game in November 2019. Tony Gutierrez/AP Images The LA Clippers were eliminated from the NBA playoffs by the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday. The stunning second-round exit makes the 2019-20 season a failure for the Clippers, who were championship favorites after going all-in around Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. The Clippers traded almost all of their future draft picks for Leonard and George, and both can become free agents one year from now. The Clippers have few ways to improve their roster and will likely retain a talented team that also just came up well short of a championship. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    In the last few years, Kawhi Leonard has established himself as one of the biggest stars in the league. After carrying the Toronto Raptors to the first-ever championship in franchise history, he moved to LA. However, Leonard and the Clippers could already be in the WCF if it weren’t for Nikola Jokic‘s Denver Nuggets. Facing elimination, the Nuggets bought their A-game on the table and avoided being sent home. Well, at least for a few days. They are still not out of the woods as they have to win three more games to advance. While Jamal Murray was the clearcut superstar in the first round, things have changed in WCSF. Nikola Jokic is burdening the load for the Nuggets on...
    The Denver Nuggets‘ season is in a dire condition as they trail 3-1 against the Clippers. Even before the playoffs began, the Los Angeles Clippers were expected to make the WCF. They have not disappointed their fans so far as they are just one win away from achieving that feat. While the Clippers sit on a comfortable lead, the Nuggets’ situation is the opposite. Although they have already erased a 3-1 deficit against the Jazz, the Clippers are on another level. Moreover, with Jamal Murray still looking to find his touch, the odds are stacked up against the Nuggets. Nikola Jokic is the only player who has stepped up for the team in the second round.

    NBA : If not a warning at the end of the second quarter, the Clippers had a quiet evening Wednesday against the Nuggets, winning 96-85 to lead 3-1. The Clippers never doubted. Not even at the start of the third quarter when the Californians, after spending five long minutes without registering a single basket, had just conceded a 12-0. Everything had to be done again against the Nuggets. While the LA franchise had taken advantage of a one-sided start to the game to have a lead of up to 16 points after 10 minutes of play (26-10), the two teams were indeed tied (48-48 ).

    There’s this one bias that affects every sport and many individuals. It happens all the time that one or at most two players take the biggest slice of the pie of popularity.

    Kawhi Leonard is one of the most unlikely superstars the NBA has seen. Leonard was an unheralded non-lottery pick who got traded by the team that drafted him. He developed a reputation as an elite defender and won the Finals MVP in 2014 for his defense on LeBron James. Despite that, Kawhi’s quiet and unspectacular nature meant that he wouldn’t get the same media attention that other superstars in the league got. Leonard has since become a two-time Defensive Player of the Year. He was the 2019 Finals MVP in the Raptors championship. NBA legend Vince Carter believes that another championship this season would bring Kawhi into the same conversation as LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan. Vince said,...

    (Photo by Adam Glanzman/Getty Images) The Toronto Raptors once again beat the odds. When Kawhi Leonard left the Toronto Raptors at the alter after just one season, albeit one that brought the franchise their first championship since their foundation in 1995, it was reasonable to wonder if Nick Nurse and the Canadian juggernauts would be able to replicate their performance in an Eastern Conference. Their performance in the NBA bubble, however, goes to show that Nurse’s squad is every bit as capable of contending for a title without Leonard as they were with him. While Vegas thought that the Raptors would struggle to remain in the top tier based on their 46.5 win over/under projection, the Raptors just picked up...
    LeBron James is all praise for the Raptors. Los Angeles Lakers faced their first defeat after the season restart in the Bubble. It came at the hands of a high-flying Toronto Raptors. Kyle Lowry folded the men in Gold and Yellow with his 33 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, and 5 out of 9 three-pointer conversion. The Lakers were doing well until the 1st half but squandered after that. But after the defeat, LeBron showed the big man in him as he praised the Raptors for all that they deserved. The Raptors are #2 in the Eastern conference but seldom get the credits they have earned. LeBron James makes a note of this loss and heaps praises on Raptors...

    The Los Angeles Clippers may be currently the heavy favorite to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they would no longer try to find a way to upgrade their current roster this fall. Like other legitimate title contenders, the Clippers also have some issues that they need to address, including the absence of a starting-caliber center on their team. One of the players that the Clippers could target on the trade market in the 2020 offseason is All-Star center Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz. In a recent article, Zach Buckley of Bleacher Report created a list of one offseason deal that every team should be thinking about. For...

    Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard said Monday he is feeling good, but coach Doc Rivers insisted the team will take a cautious approach with their star ahead of the NBA playoffs.
