Los Angeles Lakers veteran Jared Dudley wrote a new book and it was released on Kindle. The mini-book revealed so many details of Dudley’s career and his preferences. Believe it or not, he wrote about Clippers’ Paul George. Oh yes, Dudley is not a fan of the veteran.
Dudley is not a fan of George. The same applies to his teammates. From what we can see, the entire Lakers team is involved into a thing with George. Most of the incidents took place inside the Orlando bubble.
Jared Dudley slams PG in his new book
The veteran first talked about the “Battle of LA.” There was a big rivalry between the Lakers and the Clippers. Dudley knows what happened back then.
“We don’t talk to people on other teams. As far as we’re concerned, our squad is the only squad. We know that there are some real feelings regarding the Clippers. It’s more than just battle-for-LA stuff, though that’s part of it. We hear some of those guys talking about how they’re the team to beat in LA. It’s fine if Kawhi says stuff like that. He’s defending a championship. We don’t trip if someone like Patrick Beverley is talking trash; that’s how he feeds his family. We get it. We respect the hustle.”
Dudley also explained why he believes George was disrespectful. His disrespect actually fueled the Lakers’ motivation to defeat their city rivals.
“But we think it’s disrespectful for Paul George, who hasn’t won, to put himself on the level of Bron and AD. This motivates us. When we see those guys around the compound, we don’t really kick it with them. The one exception of course is Markieff, whose twin brother, Marcus, is on the Clippers. This probably keeps tensions from boiling over.”
Dudley’s team didn’t meet the Clippers in the Western Conference Finals. The Denver Nuggets put an end to the Clippers’ chance to make the NBA Finals. Kawhi Leonard blew a 3-1 lead and his team had to go home.
The Clippers will try to repeat the same success this season. But, the Lakers are too strong right now. They won’t get any near the big game.
