Paul George and Kawhi Leonard's commitment to playing alongside each other has not waned according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
George may be at odds with some teammates but his relationship with Kawhi appears to still be strong. According to Shams, "George was preaching to teammates to remain committed, for all the players to return to the team this offseason and stay ready to make another run," but it was met "by some eye rolls and bewilderment" because of his disastrous performance vs. Denver. Both George and Kawhi have one year left on their deals with player options for the following, so the Clippers will be desperate to make this core work after giving up seven first-rounders and a future star in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander for George.
