The Clippers have been successful this season, even without their second star in Paul George, but Leonard believes the team still has room for improvement.
Although Leonard has been happy with the team’s success through the first ten games, totaling a record of 7-3, this is what he had to say:
“It’s been good, I think we still have a lot to build on. I think everybody is still trying to figure each other out. We’re still missing PG, so he’s gonna come in the mix, he’s gonna be a big piece. He’s gonna draw a lot of attention, then we’re gonna have to figure it out again and we’ll just keep moving from there. I think we’ve got a lot to build on.”
George is clearly a missing piece to this team, but with how successful the team has been without him, his addition is going to be a scary sight.
Leonard also continued to explain the struggles that the Clippers are going to have to endure to get to the next level.
“It’s gonna take success, mistakes, arguments, losing games, and winning games to get to that next level. It’s about not shying away. We all gotta keep being aggressive and let each other know when we see something out there.”
As Leonard is a two-time NBA champion and Finals MVP, it’s clear that he understands what it takes to win a championship. It also seems that he is ready to lead another franchise to the top once again.
