Lawrence Frank says Clippers are fortunate that Kawhi Leonard and Paul George get along so well and set an example as the team’s best players for the rest of the locker room. – 1:27 AM

Mirjam Swanson @MirjamSwanson
Lawrence Frank jokes that it’s good the Clippers can afford the light bill, considering how much time Kawhi spends in the gym. No five on five yet, he says in this update. pic.twitter.com/cWs1lYZu2J1:22 AM

Lawrence Frank on Kawhi Leonard: “He continues to do great. He’s maniacal with his work ethic.” Frank joked “we’re glad we can afford the light bill” given how much Kawhi has been in the gym. Despite that progress, Frank said that Kawhi isn’t doing any 5-on-5 work – 1:21 AM

📅 On this day in 2011, the @Cleveland Cavaliers selected Kyrie Irving with the first overall pick in the NBA Draft.
Players in this draft have accounted for 31 All-Star nods:
7 – Irving
6 – Jimmy Butler
5 – Kawhi Leonard
5 – Klay Thompson
4 – Kemba Walker
2 – Isaiah Thomas
2 – Nikola Vucevic pic.twitter.com/vY8aFVBKXY11:01 AM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
The Raptors traded DeMar DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard. If the equivalent is on the market, great. An unproven pick and junk for Anunoby to take a step back?
As a wise man says, get that gahbage outta heah! Last I checked Bobby and Masai had not lost the capacity for rational thought – 8:48 PM

Ohm Youngmisuk. Lawrence Frank on Kawhi Leonard’s progress: “He continues to do great. He is maniacal in his work ethic… he is putting in the hours. He is doing great and continues to progress.” -via Twitter @NotoriousOHM / June 24, 2022

Overall, though, Brown’s development has been critical for this era of Celtics basketball. Deciding not to exchange him for Butler, Paul George or Kawhi Leonard (three forwards now in their 30s who’ve all changed teams more than once since Brown entered the league) was an intentional bet on upside and maximizing the organization’s potential number of championship runs (as opposed to amplifying a shorter window). Trade speculation lingered into this season, when Brown’s seemingly incongruous fit beside Jayson Tatum was placed under a microscope. There were even whispers about shipping him to Philadelphia for Ben Simmons, which Celtics president of basketball operations Brad Stevens immediately dismissed. -via Sports Illustrated / June 16, 2022

Dane Moore: Patrick Beverley said he is going to have Jaden McDaniels with him this summer for training. Beverley said he works out with Kawhi Leonard, and wants to show McDaniels how he and Kawhi do things. -via Twitter @DaneMooreNBA / April 30, 2022
