Clippers Head Coach Tyronn Lue reacts to Jared Dudley and his comments on Paul George, taking him down a peg or two for the vitriol.
Lakers forward Jared Dudley released his short mini-book titled ‘Inside the Bubble’ recently. It gives us an inside into his and the Lakers’ experiences in the Bubble, as they made their championship run.
One segment of the book has Dudley taking a dig at Paul George as he put himself on the same level as LeBron James and Anthony Davis. The Lakers forward said he believes the fact that PG did this is what motivated the Lakers even further to prepare for a ‘Battle of the LA” if it happened.

A lot of people were confused about why a bench player like Jared Dudley was writing such things about Paul Geroge. Among that list is the Clippers’ Head Coach Ty Lue as well. In the middle of an interview, Ty Lue was asked his thoughts on the book. Lue cut the reporter in the middle of his sentence.
“A book?! Jared Dudley?! … I know I can’t cuss on here so I won’t, but who cares?”

Tyronn Lue then continued and said all the noise does not matter. The only thing that matters is that Paul George knows how proud the Clippers organization is of him. The entire coaching staff and the team are very happy with his performance this season, and that should be the only thing PG pays heed to.
Paul George has been averaging 24.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.5 assists this season while shooting at a very efficient 47.8% from the deep.
