Snoop Dogg has explained why Kawhi Leonard got booed in LA.

Clippers newest superstar Leonard attended an NFL game between LA Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. And while everything seemed quite good, fans immediately booed the NBA star as soon as his face was shown on the big screen.

Just recently, LA-based rapper Snoop Dogg explained why fans did not appreciate Leonard’s attendance at the match. In an appearance on “Skip and Shannon: Undisputed,” Snoop explained why Rams fans booed Leonard based on an LA native’s standpoint.

According to Snoop, Leonard got booed because he didn’t play for the Lakers and not because he chose to play for the Clippers. “They booed him cause he didn’t come play for us. It’s not about where he’s playin at. It was like ooh, you set us up you supposed to come play for us,” the rapper said.

Snoop believes that LA fans still love Leonard and Paul George. However, they just don’t like the fact that the two NBA superstars didn’t play for the Lakers. “But they love him. They love him and they love Paul George. There’s no doubt we love our LA guys but you just playin for the wrong team,” Snoop added.

Speaking of the Lakers, Snoop also said that he thinks the biggest challenge the Purple and Gold will encounter next season is none other than the Clippers. “I think the biggest threat is definitely the Clippers. Because they got a great coach,” Snoop predicted.

A fan shared a video of the reported booing that occurred when Leonard was shown on the stadium's jumbotron.

"Kawhi just got booed. Damn. The Lakers-Clippers rivalry is gunna be lit," @RPMSports18 tweeted.

Apparently, Leonard’s Clippers co-star, George, also got booed this past weekend because LA is perceived as a "Lakers town." George recently received a less-than-warm welcome from LA sports fans in attendance during a recent MMA event.

The former OKC Thunder star was greeted by boos at a Bellator MMA event Saturday at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

George’s issue with Lakers fans is quite similar to Leonard’s. Both stars were once linked to the Lakers, but instead, the duo teamed up with the Clippers.

Leonard, who led the Toronto Raptors to the NBA championship last season, is no stranger to being booed as he received a rude welcome from San Antonio back in January when the Raptors played the Spurs at the AT&T Center.
