The Los Angeles Clippers had a very crummy 2021-22 NBA season.
They struggled all year long and ended up as the 9th seed with a record of 42-40.
The Clippers weren’t able to make the playoffs and ended the difficult season with a whimper.
Of course, there was a reasonable excuse for the tough year: the Clippers were without their biggest star, Kawhi Leonard, all year.
He was recovering from an injury all season and didn’t play a single game.
Meanwhile, Paul George also missed tons of games recovering from his own injury.

But that’s all the past now and Leonard and George are coming back.
For his part, Leonard is looking stronger than ever.
He already impressed fans a few weeks ago after he was spotted in the gym with a torso that looked like something straight out of an action movie.
Now a new image of him running in the gym is getting a lot of attention because Leonard looks incredibly strong and healthy and ready to take on anyone.
With Leonard and George back – and John Wall also on board – the Clippers are facing what could be their biggest season yet.
It better be.
Perhaps it’s because he’s been gone so long, but some people are discounting the absolute power and skill of Leonard.
He is an NBA talent unlike any other.
The two-time champion has a career average of 19.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists and he shoots 38.4% from beyond the three-point line and has a field goal percentage of 49.3%.
He is also a five-time All-Star and a two-time Finals MVP.
Oh yes, Leonard is that good.
His absence didn’t just affect his team, it affected the entire league.
But now everyone is about to see his skills on display again.
