Kawhi Leonard “Growing Increasingly Frustrated” With James Harden Era

The Los Angeles Clippers are 0-4 since James Harden joined them. In fact, even worse, they are minus-67 when Harden is on the floor. Sunday, the Clips lost by just four points to the Memphis Grizzles, but The Beard was minus-28. Yikes.

Let's just say that things aren't working out at this point with Harden in LA. And the Clippers' biggest star, Kawhi Leonard, is not happy. 

“Leonard is growing increasingly frustrated out there and took a while to come back to the bench following the timeout,” noted NBA insider Justin Russo. 

Losing to the 1-8 Grizzlies was just too much for Leonard, who also showed his frustration in a heated discussion with center Ivica Zubac.

Sometimes, it's hard to pinpoint where a team's problems originate, but not in this case:

Kawhi, of course, doesn't speak much, so we'll check in on Paul George's take after Sunday's loss: “We should be frustrated. We’re not winning games and we’re trying to figure it out... We’re all brothers in this locker room, and at times a message has to be delivered and we got to figure out how to get over the hump."

Clippers head coach Ty Lue has already said that he believes Harden needs to get in shape.

With four players, including Kawhi, PG, Russell Westbrook and Harden, all needing the ball in their hands to be effective, it'll be mighty interesting to see if the Clippers can figure this out.
