Since the Clippers have gathered the two giants Leonard and George, although the outside world believes that they will launch an impact on the championship, there are not many internal problems in the Clippers.
Leonard, who has always been silent and low-key, does not seem to be a troublemaker, but considering his experience with the Spurs, it is not surprising that he caused some discomfort in the Clippers.
According to US media reports, since coming to the Clippers, Leonard's request for some superstar treatment has caused discomfort to his teammates.
It is understood that Leonard asked to return to the scenic San Diego to recuperate, not to play games, and to engage in "load management", so that players including Beverly, Harrell and Lu Wei who had previously dominated the team's direction and atmosphere felt uncomfortable. . The Clippers actually agreed to his request.
Because he always lives in San Diego and is not with his Los Angeles teammates, Leonard is often late when everyone catches a plane together.
At the same time, the Clippers also allowed Leonard to decide when he was replaced during the game, when he needed a break, and so on.
This is probably why the Clippers chose Tyronn Lue as their coach. Lu has dealt with superstars in both player and coaching careers and can win their trust.
The success of the Cavaliers period is enough to explain his ability. Although in the end, the Cavaliers were also affected by the privilege of superstars, this problem is not the main contradiction of the final disintegration of the team, and Lu Shuai still gains the trust of LeBron after leaving office. and support.
