Talk about a shocker. The team that NBA analysts and “experts” said was least likely to get Kawhi Leonard as recently as yesterday, not only got Kawhi but also got Paul George. If you are an NBA fan you have to be happy that Kawhi did not join the Lakers. We have witnessed enough “Super Teams” and “Big 3’s” over the past decade to last a lifetime. It’s about time the NBA finally became balanced, and we can think Kawhi for that.

Kawhi Leonard and Paul George(!) added to a 48-win team that just took the fully loaded KD Warriors 6 games? Clips win their first NBA title in 2020. Jerry West 🐐

This upcoming NBA season may be one of the most anticipated seasons ever, with the Lakers and Clippers battling for supremacy in the Staples Center. You also have the Warriors and Rockets retooling, yet remaining strong in the West, and the East is once again wide open with the departure of Kawhi. And if you thought the 2019-20 NBA season is going to be crazy, just wait until 2020-21 when Kevin Durant returns.
Kawhi Leonard signing with the Clippers just put the NBA in an unbelievable spot for next season. The league is balanced, multiple teams are contenders, and we are in store for one of the best NBA seasons in years. Buckle up.

So Shai for Paul George…
And now Kawhi + Pat Beverly + Playoff P on 48 minute lockdown?
No 3rd star for the Lakers?
East wide open?
Russ gonna average a quadruple double?
