The Los Angeles Clippers failed to live up to expectations in the NBA bubble last season, and now details are surfacing about the dysfunction within the team during that time in Orlando, Fla.
“But George’s treatment was more of an issue within the locker room, league sources said,” wrote Buha. “George, while a perennial All-Star and All-NBA candidate, didn’t carry the same cachet with his teammates. There was a sentiment among certain teammates of, ‘What have you accomplished in the playoffs?’ multiple league sources said.”
The Clippers were among the legitimate title contenders in the NBA bubble, with the Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks expected to give them some competition if they ended up meeting in the playoffs.
Unfortunately for the Clippers, George and company blew a 3-1 lead in the second round of the playoffs against the resilient Denver Nuggets.
Now, George’s future with the team stands into question with a lot of speculation about whether the Clippers may end up trading him at some point.
