Even though it will take time to develop chemistry with one another, the potential that the Kawhi and PG combination presents is unlimited. On offense, there are definitely adjustments to be made in terms of usage rate distribution, but both players have the abilities to play on or off the ball while being impactful no matter the situation. The situation is even more promising on the defensive end, as they are both considered among the NBA’s elite all-around defenders that will be able to handle anything that is thrown any them.
What makes the Clippers different from other past super teams is that they will have one of the deepest rosters in the league. They will be returning with a roster that won 48 games, was able to make the playoffs last year in the deep western conference, and then pushed the Golden State Warriors to 6 games. And that was without Kawhi or PG! Instead, the team got steady and timely contributions from the likes of both veteran and young talent under the command of head coach Doc Rivers.
Lou Williams has always been known to be an elite bench player (3-time 6th Man of the Year) but emerged as a late game take over guy for who can score from everywhere. Patrick Beverly took care of things on defense, as his intensity became contagious and inspired the rest of his teammates to give the same effort. Landry Shamet proved to be one of the biggest steals of the 2018 Draft, since his knockdown 3-point shooting ability will give him a role to play in the NBA for years to come. Combine this guard depth with the potential of young big men Montrezl Harrel and Ivica Zubac, this team provides the perfect group of role players to surround Kawhi Leonard and Paul George as they are set to embark on the journey towards the first championship in franchise history.
