Chris Broussard says Kawhi Leonard is now treating the NBA like a job rather than just a hobby

Los Angeles Clippers superstar Kawhi Leonard is reportedly committed to playing in back-to-backs for the rest of the season.

Fox Sports analyst Chris Broussard recently pointed how Leonard is taking his role in the NBA much more seriously now.

“He has had a true attitude adjustment,” Broussard said. “For the last few years, he’s treated basketball like a hobby rather than his job. Now, he’s playing a career-high 34.2 minutes a game. He’s said he’s going to go on and continue to play back-to-backs. This attitude adjustment is good for the Clippers.”

On Wednesday, Leonard conducted playing in his first back-to-back contest since April of 2017.

The veteran has been notorious for sitting out numerous games a season in order to rest. Yet, it appears Leonard wants to tighten up his approach and do whatever it takes to get the Clippers more ready for the playoffs.

After all, the Clippers were the joke of the postseason last year. The team gave up a 3-1 lead and lost in embarrassing fashion to the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the 2020 playoffs.

The Clippers went through several internal changes since the horrific collapse, including replacing former head coach Doc Rivers with Tyronn Lue.

On the 2020-21 season, Leonard is gathering 23.0 points, 6.1 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game. The Clippers hold the No. 3 spot in the Western Conference.
