Los Angeles Clippers Rumors
Jovan Buha: The Clippers’ introductory press conference for Kawhi Leonard and Paul George is next Wednesday, July 24, the team announced. Steve Ballmer, Doc Rivers and Lawrence Frank will also address the media.
Kawhi Leonard’s legal battle with Nike just got a lot bigger. After the NBA star filed a lawsuit in June over Nike’s trademark of a claw logo, the Beaverton, Ore.-based company filed a countersuit Wednesday against Leonard. It accused the baller of copyright infringement, fraud within his initial copyright filing and breach of contract.
On Wednesday, Nurse joined SN 590s Jeff Blair and Richard Deitsch on Prime Time Sports, where he answered a pair of questions regarding the Raptors future following Leonard’s departure. “Listen, there isn’t a whole lot we can do about it now that it’s over. You know, we’ve got guys here and nothing changes much for us – we’re into development, we’ve got some good looks at some guys at Summer League, we’ve got a bunch of guys getting together here for our regular summer workouts, et cetera so we just move on and progress towards training camp… I probably haven’t given it that much thought.”
Nick Nurse: “I think aggressive defence, I think playing a lot of people throughout the regular season, changing defences, being really good late game. None of that stuff changes for me. I think that’s what we want our team to be and where we go from there. Now, listen, you can say [Leonard] made a lot of big buckets and he was clutch in the late game and all that kind of stuff but we’re gonna have to develop that from somewhere else.”
Mark Berman: Pat Beverley (@Patrick Beverley): “The West is going to be even..Of course the acquisition of Westbrook to the #Rockets, stellar move. Happy for the city, extremely happy for the city. They deserve it…I think it’ll work.” Pat at his camp for kids, Camp Lockdown in Humble. pic.twitter.com/E4P21aHH51
Lou Williams is somehow both underappreciated and respected. He’s arrogant and humble. He’s young and old. He’s super laid-back and he’s an assassin. He lives in a quiet town and throws parties so big they inspire hit rap songs. He makes his own music and doesn’t care to promote it much. He never starts and is always one of the best basketball players in a game. He won’t go unnoticed and he won’t say a word. He does things his way and is the ultimate teammate. He keeps to himself and he’s cool with every celebrity you know. He hasn’t been an All-Star and he regularly puts up All-Star numbers. He writes his name in record books and could not give a shit about his legacy. The story of Lou Will can be broken down into what seems like a million contradictions, but they’re not. They all make perfect sense for the Underground GOAT.
