Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers are not considered championship favorites right now.

However, this may be a good thing for them.

Whenever he was considered a serious contender, something bad happened to him.

Now people seem to be ignoring him, which may work in his favour.

Kawhi Leonard sent a message to his teammates, showing his confidence in the team ahead of this year’s playoffs.

Leonard made it clear that nothing is given to the Clippers, especially at this point.

They need to warm up before the playoffs as they may see a tough opponent in the first round.

The Phoenix Suns will be their first matchup if the season ends now, and the Clippers know it’s a big challenge.

Leonard had a cold response when asked about the Suns, almost saying he didn’t pay attention to them.

Leonard knows his team can also be dangerous, and he’s focused on being the best player he can be in the post-season.

Paul George is still sidelined, but the Clippers found a great piece in Russell Westbrook.

The point guard is trying to make a statement with the Clippers.

They need to win a championship this season to silence the doubters and show that they have come through.

The Clippers end their season today against the aforementioned Suns in a game that could be a preview of a first-round duel.

This team has done the work and is now heading towards the post season. Where they land isn’t a problem for their head coach or players.
