Apparently, recent reports suggest that Clippers' stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George have failed to train enough with each other over the course of the ongoing NBA season. Paul George missed an entire off-season due to a shoulder surgery. He didn’t make his debut with the Clippers until November 14. He only recently returned to the court after another injury setback.
The Clippers have been below par as per their usual high standards. Things could change at playoff time, but it’s going to be harder for Kawhi Leonard and Paul George to adjust when they have so little experience actually playing together.
