Kawhi Leonard Is Worried By The Clippers' Lack Of Consistency: "It's Very Concerning. If We Want To Have A Chance At Anything, We Got To Be Consistent."

Kawhi Leonard is one of the league's premier superstars. He has won two titles in his career, with his most recent title coming in 2019 with the Toronto Raptors. After leading Toronto to their first-ever championship, he elected to move to the Los Angeles Clippers. There were a lot of expectations on the Los Angeles Clippers last season, but they spectacularly fell short after blowing a 3-1 lead.

The Los Angeles Lakers hit a rough patch in the last few weeks, and have had an inconsistent season in general. They are the 4th seed in the Western Conference and have a lot of work to do in order to get to being championship-caliber. Stephen A. Smith has recently called on Kawhi Leonard to do more for the team.

I also know it’s time for Kawhi Leonard to get a whole bunch of attention pushed in his direction. It’s time for him to step up.

A lot was promised because of him. A new era for the Clippers because of him but so far he’s been disappointing, that’s not a new era, that’s the same old Clippers... He owes us him versus LeBron in the postseason, anything else is unacceptable.

Stephen A. Smith makes some good points. The Los Angeles Clippers were supposed to be able to beat the Los Angeles Lakers, but they didn't even make it to face them. The scrutiny often falls on the best players on the team, and Kawhi Leonard is the clear-cut top player on the Clippers. Kawhi Leonard will be looked upon to carry the Los Angeles Clippers in the postseason, and hopefully, he can fulfill those expectations. The Clippers have a lot of work to do, and Kawhi Leonard himself knows that.
