Most Valuable Player – F Kawhi Leonard

Again, most of the awards come as no brainers and when the Clippers pursued and eventually got Kawhi Leonard this past summer, they knew he would be their regular season and hopefully Finals MVP.

Leonard dealt with load management and injuries to kick off the season, being in and out of the lineup but still providing a needed leadership role to a playoff team pursuing a championship.

Averaging 26.9 points per game, Leonard has done well scoring the basketball this season and he ranks 5th in PER, posting a 26.76 rating. Leonard has also shot efficiently as well, teasing the 50-40-90 club with a 46.8 field goal percentage, a 36.6 three-point percentage and an 88.9 free-throw percentage.

Bringing forward Paul George to the Clippers also made Leonard the MVP of the team before the season even started and bringing the team success has also brought in the likes of Marcus Morris and Reggie Jackson.

If the playoffs do happen, expect Leonard to immediately jump into playoff mode and take his game up a notch for the Clippers as he did last season leading the Toronto Raptors to their first NBA Championship.

As far as a runner-up goes, I would give that to Paul George despite his missed time. When George is on, he is on and is just another weapon in the arsenal of five or six players on the Clippers that can get a bucket in clutch situations.

Next. Best/worst transactions of the last decade for the Clippers. dark

Runner Up: G/F Paul George
