Leonard, a Black NBA superstar who has experienced racism and made varying efforts to help his community, hardly seemed consumed with what he might put on the back of his jersey to highlight racial inequality. When the Clippers resume their NBA season against the Los Angeles Lakers on July 30 at ESPN’s World Wide of Sports Complex, Leonard wants to spark change in a different way.

“I'm still going to continue to help and educate people as well as my teammates,” Leonard said Monday on a video conference call with reporters. “It doesn't matter if we have a statement on the back of our jersey. It's about doing the work.”

Leonard has done the work in a variety of ways.

In the community, Leonard partnered with the Clippers foundation and non-profit Baby2Baby to give a million backpacks to all students in his hometown (Moreno Valley, California) as well as other L.A.-based school districts (Inglewood Unified, Los Angeles Unified).

There have been other efforts he has not publicized even amid nation-wide protests about system racism after a white police officer (Derek Chauvin) killed an unarmed black man (George Floyd) on Memorial Day. That prompted Clippers guard Lou Williams to deliberate on whether he would play to concentrate on social justice efforts, but he recently revealed the team determined that all will either sit or resume the season.

  AP Source: Kawhi Leonard's arrival at Disney will be delayed A person with knowledge of the situation says that Kawhi Leonard did not accompany the Los Angeles Clippers on their flight to Central Florida on Wednesday night for the restart of the NBA season. Leonard's absence was excused and he is expected to join the team at the Disney complex near Orlando sometime in the next few days, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team did not publicly disclose the matter. Yahoo Sports first reported that Leonard was not on the flight to the Orlando area.

“We're Black, so we've been dealing with this situation,” Leonard said of he and his Clippers teammates. “We've been giving back to our communities. It's just broadcasting now since everybody has been in quarantine. So it's a big focal point on that when you're at home watching the news. But I'm just going to continue to do what I've been doing, giving back to my community, educating my community, and just keep going from there.”

On the court, Leonard has proven to be one of the NBA’s best players after helping the Toronto Raptors win last year’s NBA title during his lone season there. Before the NBA halted operations on March 11, the Clippers (44-20) trailed the Lakers (49-14) by 5½ games for the Western Conference’s best record, partly because of Leonard’s efforts. He averaged 26.9 points on 46.8% shooting along with 7.3 rebounds and 5.0 assists. He complemented Paul George’s defense and playmaking. And even if he missed a combined 14 games because of various injuries surrounding his left knee (13) and lower back (one), the absence helped the Clippers in two ways.

PG: 'I had some insecurities' after offseason surgery

  PG: 'I had some insecurities' after offseason surgery Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George missed the club's first 11 games of the 2019-20 campaign after undergoing offseason surgery on both of his shoulders. The All-Star forward wasn't feeling like his old self when he returned and admits that it's taken him some time to find his bearings. "Really, I had some insecurities to start the season off," George told reporters Friday, including ESPN's Ohm Youngmisuk. "I had insecurities throughout the season just because I wasn't all the way 100 (%). Shoulder didn't feel back to 100.

If you work hard but your salary still leaves much to be desired, you have to change something. Bernard Shaw once said that this world is full of idlers who don' t want to work and just want to make money, while those who are ready to work never get rich.

Despite their occasional inconsistency with play and effort, the Clippers leaned on their depth to figure out varying roster combinations. It also enabled Leonard to feel healthy for when the games really count. That moment is here.

“I feel good,” Leonard said. “I was able to work out, get strong and prepare for this moment now that we're in.”

Leonard practiced for the first time on Monday after the Clippers excused him to attend to a family matter when they flew to Orlando on July 8. Leonard arrived this weekend and went through quarantine protocol. Though Clippers guard Landry Shamet tested positive for COVID-19, they otherwise have a fully healthy roster. George added his surgically repaired shoulders feel 100% after he missed the first 11 games of the season.

That might give the Clippers an initial edge over the Lakers. Forward Avery Bradley opted out of playing so he could stay with his 6-year-old son, who has history with respiratory illness. The Lakers expect Rajon Rondo to be out for the next six to eight weeks after he fractured his right thumb during Sunday’s practice. Though Rondo will have surgery off campus, Lakers coach Frank Vogel remained optimistic he could return during the postseason since his timeline would coincide with the beginning of the second round of the playoffs. Still, a healthy Clippers team has gone 10-1 this season.

Korver to feature BLM on jersey: 'In this moment in time, this is the message'

  Korver to feature BLM on jersey: 'In this moment in time, this is the message' Milwaukee Bucks veteran Kyle Korver plans to feature the words "Black Lives Matter" on his jersey when the 2019-20 NBA season resumes in Orlando later this month. "I just think that in this moment in time, this is the message," he told The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears. "Anything I would ever hope to convey on the back of a jersey is represented in these three words." The phrase is one of a number of social justice messages players are permitted to feature on their jerseys.

“You obviously need your stars to win. I don't think it's going to be a team that wins starless. Having said that, you need a ton of role players,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “You need to be able to sustain injuries. When you can, you still have a chance to win, and that will help our team. It also gives us an opportunity to play different lineups.”

It no longer appears the Clippers will have to do that because of Leonard, though. He reported feeling fully healthy. The Clippers lauded him for his training regimen during quarantine. Leonard said he communicated frequently with teammates through texts and phone conversations. That is what Rivers meant when he told his players to “win the wait.”

All of which explains why Leonard doesn’t believe their championship aspirations should be diminished with an asterisk.

“Nobody's life is pretty much how they planned it to be at this point with the pandemic,” Leonard said. “You take it for what it is. Everybody is happy that a championship will be crowned this year. If that's the 2020 championship, then we want it.”

"I have decided not to," Butler said Tuesday, according to ESPN's Nick Friedell. "With that being said, I hope that my last name doesn't go on there as well. "Just because I love and respect all the messages that the league did choose, but for me, I felt like with no message, with no name, it's going back to like who I was.

Report: NBA shortens exhibition openers to 10-minute quarters .
The opening NBA exhibition matchups in Orlando will feature four 10-minute quarters as opposed to the customary 12 minutes, according to The Associated Press' Tim Reynolds. The league reportedly made the change because some teams lack a full roster, and to avoid overworking players after a four-month hiatus. The Los Angeles Clippers and Orlando Magic will kick off the exhibition schedule Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET. Each of the 22 teams competing in the NBA restart will have three exhibition matchups prior to the beginning of "seeding games" on July 30. The clubs' last two tune-ups will shift back to traditional 12-minute quarters.Copyright © 2020 Score Media Ventures Inc.
