Alright, so the playoffs have begun and the LA Clippers are facing the Dallas Mavericks in the first round. Well, the series is currently tied at 2-2. Lets see what happens at the end of the series. Now, Kawhi came from Toronto Raptors who were the 2019 NBA champions. With the addition of Paul George to the Clippers, I felt like the Clippers were a pretty strong contender for the championship and perhaps it was a wise decision to join the Clippers. There are a number of strong contenders in the NBA right now. The league has changed drastically since the last season got over. Kevin Durant left the Warriors, Westbrook joined the Rockets, Anthony Davis went to the Lakers etc.
Well, considering these scenarios one could have thought that maybe Kawhi’s decision to join the Clippers was a wise one. However, looking at how Paul George is performing, I guess Kawhi would have been better off with the Raptors. He might have felt like playing for his home town and there could be other reasons, but somehow it feels like maybe Raptors were a better team for Kawhi as far as winning the Finals was concerned. Pascal Siakam has improved a lot in this season looking at his stats. Then Kyle Lowry is a decent player along with Fred Vanvleet. Well, whether Kawhi was right in leaving the Raptors or not, we will get to know that at the end of the season.
