The Klaw also mentioned he feels even stronger coming into this year after implementing a weight lifting program over the past year while rehabbing. Kawhi underwent surgery on a partially torn ACL more than a year ago and is poised to make a big comeback this season.
FanDuel Sportsbook has the Clippers near the top of the NBA championship futures board. Los Angeles sits with +700 odds to win the 2022-23 title. They are tied with the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets, while only the Boston Celtics (+550) and Milwaukee Bucks (+650) have shorter odds.
The health and play of Leonard will be a crucial part of the team’s success this season.
