‘Winning the Clippers is 100% more meaningful than winning the Lakers.’스포츠토토
LA Clippers ace Paul George said:
American CBS Sports said on the 16th (Korean time), ‘Paul George made a statement that winning the Clippers was much more meaningful than winning the Lakers.’
Here is the bleak historical background of the LA Clippers.
At this point, the Clippers are a strong team. With Kawhi Leonard and Paul George’s offensive and defensive one-two punch, it is a team with the power to aim for the top of the West. However, even until 2020, the LA Clippers were the worst club.
Every year, he was a last-place candidate, and it was a polar opposite with the LA Lakers, who share the same hometown of LA. In the 2010s, they reigned as a strong team with the duo of Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, but failed to advance to the conference finals for 50 consecutive years.
Eventually, after retooling, he brought Leonard and George, and was freed from the curse by reaching the 2021 Western Conference Finals.
The Clippers have never won a Finals championship in their history. The Lakers have already won numerous championships.
Because of this, Paul George said, ‘Winning with the Clippers is far more valuable than Laker.’ The LA Clippers have a 53-year history. However, they have not won the finals even once. Will Paul George and Kawhi Leonard break the jinx this season?
