It’s really happening, both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers are title contenders, each team had a superstar due –
The Lakers have Anthony Davis and Lebron James, while the Clippers has Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
How did it all happened?
Kawhi was a free agent and set up meetings with the Raptors, Lakers, and Clippers.
According to some reports, Kawhi told the Clippers that he won’t sign with them. This move let the Clippers work behind the scenes and kept the Lakers and the Raptors from doing some offseason moves.
Apparently, Paul George asked for a trade and Kawhi told the Clippers that he will sign with them if they get George.
The Clippers realized that this is their time to shine and sent 2 players and about 5 draft picks in order to acquire George from the Thunder.
Kawhi and Paul now join a team that took the Warriors to 6 game series and made the Clippers into a serious contender.
The Lakers signed lots of role players to surround Davis and James and now we will just have to see how things will turn around.
