Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard maintains growing pains are part of the process

first_imgWhile the Clippers were waking up to their offseason last April, Kawhi Leonard still was grinding north of the border, unwavering as he steered the Toronto Raptors to their first championship – NBA title No. 2 for the Riverside native, who also had a second Finals MVP trophy coming his way as a reward for his efforts.For him, those results hammered it home like one of Leonard’s one-handed slams: “Don’t be in a rush to win games, enjoy every moment of it, enjoy the process and use it as a learning tool when we get down in the trenches.”From the start of this season, Leonard – who exploded for a season-high 43 points in fewer than 29 minutes in the Clippers’ spirited 128-103 victory over Cleveland on Tuesday – has been stumping on behalf of perspective and patience.Whether it was an embarrassing loss like the 140-114 stunner against Memphis earlier this month or a blowout victory such as Tuesday’s, Leonard has been consistent and insistent: All of it is valuable in the end.At least it is if the Clippers – who are 28-13 and host the Orlando Magic (19-21 entering their game against the Lakers on Wednesday) on Thursday night – learn something from every experience. For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory LOS ANGELES — Landry Shamet arrived in the NBA last season as a wise-beyond-his-years 21-year-old with a personal slogan – “Never Cheated” – that’s as relevant this season as ever.“One of my best friends, (when) I was going through a little rough patch in college, texted me and said, ‘Hey man, you know yourself, you know you grind and you do things the right way – you’ve never cheated yourself,’” Shamet said last year just after the Clippers were eliminated after a compelling first-round Western Conference playoff series against the Golden State Warriors.“It just stuck with me. … There’s ups and downs. You’re gonna go through ruts, you’re gonna go through highs. You just can never waver.“Good things will find you in return for doing that.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Related Articles Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum Leonard got those sorts of lessons when he was about Shamet’s age and surrounded by future Hall of Famers in San Antonio, where he experienced his first championship glory in 2014.“Yeah, just dealing with them every day, seeing their work ethic, seeing how they buy in,” said Leonard, now 28, of his time with Coach Gregg Popovich and teammates Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. “Obviously have the respect for them and what they had done before I got there, so they were great.”It wasn’t Leonard’s place to lead in San Antonio, but in L.A., he’s been clear in his message to media members and, he said, with his teammates, who are under pressure to hurry up and figure it out.Leonard is more of a hurry-up-and-wait guy, “just telling everybody what it takes to win, just trying to communicate, making sure we don’t skip steps.”Never cheating, in other words. Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 MUCH LOVE FOR LUEWith vigor, Cavs veteran Tristan Thompson embraced Tyronn Lue – a Clippers assistant coach and former Cleveland head coach – on the sideline on Tuesday, the 6-foot-9 post player wrapping the 6-0 former guard in a bear hug and lifting him well off the ground.“I thought he was going to break him,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers joked after the game, when he also paid tribute to Lue and Thompson’s – and Kevin Love’s and Matthew Dellavedova’s – championship run with the Cavs in 2016.“When you win a title with certain people, they become part of your blood, your bloodline,” Rivers said. “With Tristan and K-Love and Dellavedova, that is something that will never be taken away from there no matter where they are at.“It was really neat to see when they all came in the way they received Ty. That was fun to watch.”SAN DIEGO STATE TO HONOR LEONARDSan Diego State will honor Leonard, who led the Aztecs to the NCAA Tournament in both of the seasons he played for them, with a jersey retirement ceremony on Feb. 1.  He’ll be the first player in program history to have his jersey retired in the Viejas Arena rafters.Leonard is expected to be present for the ceremony, which will include two-time national coach of the year Steve Fisher during a 7 p.m. home game against Utah State.

The Presidential Search Advisory Committee (PSAC) presented six candidates to the Board for consideration, one of which withdrew for personal reasons.

We thank the members for their involvement,” said Board of Trustees Chair Judy Blinn. “The high-caliber candidates reflect not only the excellence of the committee’s work, but the quality and reputation of the college.  The Board has an important and challenging task ahead in choosing among these highly qualified individuals for the next president of this respected institution.”The Board of Trustees hired the executive search firm National Search and Education Consulting to assist the board in the process of hiring a new college president. The final candidates will be scheduled to tour the campus and community; meet staff, faculty and community members; and interview with the Board of Trustees in early December.  The Board of Trustees will then make a final selection for the presidency of South Puget Sound Community College later in December.
