Beijing time October 14 news, the Lakers regained the NBA championship after a lapse of ten years, the 17th time in team history they won the cup and tied with the old rival Boston Celtics. After the Lakers won the championship, the whole Los Angeles was in joy. Of course, not everyone in LA was happy, because the city also has a team called the Clippers.
Compared with the Lakers' domineering trip to win the championship, the Clippers, which are also ambitious this season, have a much tragic ending. At the beginning of the season, the two-star combination of Kawaii Leonard and Paul George was completed, equipped with Louis Williams, Harrell, Morris Jr. and other famous players. Many people’s favorites to win the championship are the Clippers rather than the Lakers. . However, in the Western Conference semifinals, with a 3-1 lead, they were reversed by the Denver Nuggets and failed to even win a chance to touch the Lakers in the playoffs.
In a recent interview, Lakers legend Magic Johnson talked about the Clippers in the same city. Magic believes that the difference between Leonard and James is one of the most important factors affecting the fate of the two teams.
"Regarding the Clippers, listen, I think what they lack is-they just don't have a leader." The magician said. "A superstar can be a superstar, so Leonard is a superstar. He plays on both ends of the offense and defense. Performance. I think Paul George is a rising star, he may become a superstar in the future. However, you need someone to lead the team. Look, LeBron James is both. He is the world The strongest superstar in Shanghai, but also the best leader in the world. I think that’s what the Clippers lack. And you know, the Clippers have been saying all season that they want to play against the Lakers. They had a chance, but Not sure."
Magic’s view is recognized by many people. After the Clippers were out, many people criticized their performance as not a team, and there is no good leader who kneaded their group of talented players together. And this problem, under the leadership of the Lakers, will not be a problem. Leonard and Pickles are the first year of cooperation, and James and Anthony Davis are also there, but the situation of the two teams is very different, and the combat effectiveness shown is naturally not the same.
魔术的观点得到了很多人的认可。快船队出局后，许多人批评他们的表现不是一支球队，而且没有优秀的领导者将他们的才华横溢的球员揉在一起。在湖人的领导下，这个问题将不会成为问题。 Leonard和Pickles是合作的第一年，James和Anthony Davis也在那里，但是两支球队的情况大不相同，而且显示的战斗力自然也不尽相同。
