Paul George is not one of the respected figures in the locker room of the Los Angeles Clippers, per Ryan Russillo of The Ringer.

The superstar of the Clippers does not have the respect of his teammates and that affected the status of Doc Rivers as head coach.

“This surprised Doc. From what I’m told he thought he was ok. But this locker room was an even bigger mess than I think we realized. Kawhi has never had to be a vocal leader and PG doesn’t have the respect of his teammates,” Russillo reports.

George and the Clippers dropped a 3-1 lead to the Denver Nuggets and failed to reach the Western Conference Finals.

This failure also cost the job of head coach Doc Rivers.
