As we all know,
The Lakers wanted to introduce Leonard very much last year and wanted to build a Big Three lineup with LeBron and Davis. There was also a great chance at one time. Unfortunately, Kaka still chose the Clippers, which disappointed the Lakers.
In an interview with ESPN, Lakers coach Vogel recently revealed that they got a small card last year almost very large, "Of course, we are likely to sign him, our chances are very good. Just July 1 (the free agent market opened ) For a long time ago, and the first week after it was opened, we all felt that he would join us."
"If he joins us, what will happen to our team? If we have him, we will be special, but obviously, we are also great without him, (and won the championship)."
In the end, the Clippers led by Leonard suffered a heavy hit in the playoffs, and the Western Conference semifinals had a 3-1 lead against the Nuggets but was reversed. The Lakers went smoothly and won the championship.
This is mainly because although the two teams have super giants, the Lakers' chemistry is excellent and the teams are very united. The Clippers have not found the chemistry that they should have throughout the season, and internal conflicts are raging. In the end, coach Rivers Class is also sadly dismissed.
