Ty Lue Says Kawhi Leonard Will Play A Michael Jordan Role In Clippers' Offense

Clippers’ new head coach Ty Lue says he will implement star forward Kawhi Leonard into the offense in a similar style to NBA legends Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, by running a triangle offense.

“We have put in two or three sets from the triangle and let Kawhi play in those spaces where Kobe and Jordan played in those spots as well,” said Lue. “[Leonard] loves those two players. He really respects and looks up to those guys, so we’re just trying to put him in positions [to succeed]. I was able to play with both those guys, but I also played in the triangle, so just trying to teach him that as well as teaching our team as well.”
