On October 24th, Beijing time, the American media Fadeaway World wrote an analysis about the Los Angeles Clippers. They analyzed what would happen if the Clippers did not get Paul George in a deal. In the end, FW believes that the Los Angeles Clippers would be stronger if the Clippers had not been traded for Paul George, so from another angle-Kawhi Leonard would suffer the consequences.
On July 1, 2019, it was revealed that Kawhi Leonard will sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, but the prerequisite for Kawhi to sign with the Clippers is to get Paul George from the Thunder. Kawhi needs a superstar teammate before he is willing to join the Kuwait. The ship, the Clippers spent a great deal of effort to get George from the Thunder (now Leonard’s move is self-inflicted, he shot himself in the foot). The bargaining chip to trade George is:
1. The Heat's unprotected first round of signing in 2021
2. The first round of unprotected Clippers in 2022
3. The Heat's 14th pick in 2023
4. The first round of swaps in 2023
5. The first round of unprotected Clippers in 2024
6. The first round of swaps in 2025
7. The first round of unprotected Clippers in 2026
9. Alexander (a total of 5 first-round signings + 2 first-round swaps + 2 outstanding players)
9.亚历山大（总共5次首轮签约+ 2次首轮掉期+ 2名优秀球员）
American media FW analysis, if the Clippers did not trade George, they will have a stronger starting lineup around Kawhi Leonard, the starting lineup of the Clippers: Beverly + Alexander + Kawhi-Lai Onard + Gallinari + Zubac, this lineup Alexander can take on part of the offensive manufacturing. He averaged 19 points, 5.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists this season, and his shooting percentage was as high as 47.1%.
Gallinari’s performance is not worse than George’s, averaging 18.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists, and the three-point shooting percentage is 41.7%. George only averages 21.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists, shooting 43.9%. The Clippers will not this season. The biggest weakness is lack of organization. Lu Wei, Harrell, Shamet and Gallinari and Alexander on the bench are more in harmony.
The team can also have better chemistry and fewer superstars, and the Clippers still have 5 first-round picks to win the future. Now it's the wrong decision to trade George. He looks very ordinary, which makes the Thunder a real winner. Gallinari and Alexander played similarly to George. George's superstar treatment in the Clippers has also divided the locker room. A team has two superstars receiving preferential treatment, which makes the role players feel dissatisfied. Without George, the locker room of the Clippers would be more stable. Gallinari is The veteran can also play a neutral role.
The Clippers should and will not be reversed if they lead the Nuggets 3-1. Alexander is a guard with All-Star potential. He has a big heart. He is also a two-way player on offense and defense. He is no match for Leonard. George is poor, and he is a young player, this will be more intense in the locker room centripetal force, the overall chemical reaction of the team can refer to the Thunder. The Clippers' five first-round signings in the future can also continue to be used, and even if Leonard jumps out of the contract after three years, they can still choose outstanding young players to rebuild.
In other words, Kawhi Leonard's decision to let the Clippers help him trade George was extremely wrong.
