As the L.A. Clippers look to make amends for their failure last season, they're pulling all the stops to ensure they come out with more success this go-round.

Aside from some moves in the offseason, the Clippers brought in some much-needed help, in the form of veteran guard Rajon Rondo, who joined the squad in a trade with the Hawks.

Following Sunday night's game against his former team, in which he saw 12 minutes of action, Rondo's teammate Paul George gave him a glowing review, citing him as a leader of the group.

On the court, PG expects that his new teammate to help make life a lot easier...

It's hard to gauge Rondo's impact now as, famously, he's known for stepping up in the playoffs. But for a team that fell so flat in that stretch a year ago, that might be exactly the kind of player they need.

As a natural leader, talented playmaker, and 2x NBA Champion, the 35-year-old should bring his new team one step closer to finally realizing their goals.
