Kawhi Leonard just signed with the Clippers for a 4 year $142 million dollar deal and convinced Paul George to demand a trade. (Kawhi Laugh) The Clippers then traded 4 unprotected first round picks, 1 protected first round pick, 2 pick swaps, Danilo Gallinari, and Shai Gilgeous Alexander for Paul George. The Lakers are left in a tough spot which was the plan.
\With Kawhi and Paul George going to the Clippers, the Lakers watched all possible quality free agents sign with other teams without the Lakers even giving an offer. If you don’t remember, the Lakers had 6 players signed to their active roster. Anthony Daivs, LeBron, Kuzma, Troy Daniels, Horton-Tucker, and Jared Dudley. They just signed Danny Green, Cadwell Pope, and JaVale McGee to make it 9 players which I will get into, but they saw free agents like Seth Curry, J.J. Reddick, Bioojan Bogdonovic, Brook Lopez all sign without even meeting the Lakers simply because the Lakers were waiting out on Kawhi. They were betting that Kawhi would sign with them, but this was always a very real possibility that Kawhi would either resign with the Raptors or go to the Clippers. If Kawhi decided late in free agency that he wasn’t going to the Lakers, the Lakers understood that they would be in their current predicament of having a lot of cap space with no one to spend it on.
Kawhi and Paul George met in LA earlier this week in which Kawhi asked PG to team up with him on the Lakers. He never had the intention of building a superteam with the Lakers, yet he still entertained them. Kawhi met with the Lakers, Clippers, and Raptors on Monday. In that meeting with the Clippers, he specifically told Steve Ballmer that if they can get PG, he’s coming to the Clippers. Keep in mind that Paul George just resigned last season and has 3 years left on his contract. To tell the Clippers that they need to get Paul George and to tell Paul George to join him, He got Paul George to demand a trade from the Thunder. The Thunder who already had just lost in back to back first rounds, were thinking of blowing it all up already and so as crazy as it seems to trade a guy who was an MVP candidate with 3 years left on his contract in his prime, the situation presented itself. And here come the Clippers, knowing that if they are able to get Paul George, that they would also secure Kawhi. That trade wasn’t for one superstar, it was for two, and so when you look at the 7 first round picks along with Shai and Galinari, think about that being the trade offer for Kawhi and PG in their primes for 4 and 3 years respectively. The Clippers also have a championship winning coach in Doc Rivers who beat the Lakers with the richest owner in the NBA in Steve Ballmer with possibly the best executive in NBA history in Jerry West, you know the logo, the guy who made the Lakers actually good at trading and signing players. Once again, if it was just Kawhi with great role players, the Lakers still had two of the top 5 players in the NBA and so with average role players, the Lakers would be the favorites, but the addition of Paul George leaves the Lakers at a severe disadvantage.
Keep in mind that each year for LeBron is important, because we don’t know how many years of high level play LeBron has left. This is not me saying of LeBron doesn’t have enough help because LeBron has AD, but I’m talking about the potential missed and the repercussions of it. He will turn 35 during this upcoming season and so missing out on role players this offseason wastes another year of what the Lakers could have been, a year that is so precious. The issue is that 2 year deals or even 1 year of overpaying and missing out on 40% of the league being free agents is failing to equip AD and LeBron with what could have been in their small window for a championship with LeBron aging, and all of that is a direct product of Kawhi Leonard toying with the Lakers.
We also know that by Kawhi and Magic’s conversations being leaked, Kawhi was probably liking the Lakers less and less. Well Kawhi gave the Clippers a test to see how much they wanted him by giving them one demand. Kawhi played this perfectly. Uncle Dennis really got the sage advice. Whoever is in his circle is really telling Kawhi the right things. There was no losing situations out of those 3 places for Kawhi. This has to be the single greatest offseason in NBA history and this move by Kawhi and Paul George has to be one of the slickest, quietest moves made by two superstars that sucker punched their biggest competition, but what do you think? Who’s winning the championship in 2020?

  • They just kept waited for the date that the Lakers have to lose about 6M capacity to sign players. Definitely purposed to give them hope that Kawhi "might" sign with them, this Kawhi is never been the shy Kawhi we known from the start, evil mind and unpredictable thinking.

  • Kawhi to the Lakers was nothing but hype by the media. Kawhi may have talked to the Lakers but never once indicated he was commiting to them. At the same time, he wasn't burning the bridge. That's not sabotage. Thats just the media and the Laker nation being butthurt.

  • Kawhi Leonard and Paul George didn’t sabotage the Lakers. Kawhi was not going to go to the Clippers alone. If he was gonna go alone, then that wouldn’t be the case. Paul George got traded to the Clippers and then Kawhi signed with the Clippers. I’m a laker fan and I thought that it would be obvious that Kawhi Leonard would join the Clippers.

  • LOWLIFES, if Kawhi and George did that to any team they would be LOWLIFES. Doing it to your own childhood home team would be extra twisted. Why do fans and sports commentators think so low of the charters of these athletes? I know many people love hearing about negative Lakers news, but to think these guys would purposely try to hurt players lives, their families and the home team that wanted to sign them sounds crazy. Are Kawhi and George that selfish and evil? I don't think so. These double standards concerning the Lakers are getting out of hand this offseason. Article after article shining a negative light on the Lakers, while Paul George and the Spurs get a pass. How many articles have you read about how the Spurs destroyed their relationship with injured Kawhi? First, they publicly doubted his injury. Then the coach, the players, and the team's legendary players came out bashing Kawhi. Never in NBA history has players come out publicly to deny the injury of a teammate, nothing on this level. And Paul George said he wanted to come home and play for the Lakers in a year. He is treaded to OKC for a year. He signs with OKC with 3-year contract. After one year he wants to leave and go to the Clippers. How many articles on Paul George loyalty? and if the Lakers lost arguably the best player in the league over drama and pettiness like the Spurs did, we would still be talking about it. Double Standards for Lakers.

  • Balmer money with the Clips is out to beat lakers and take over LA. Balmer has 10x more money than Buss, $500 million to $50 billion of Balmer. Yes, Lakers has owned LA, but loosing every year and getting beat by Clips every year is going to have its toll on fans. Balmer is retired and has nothing to do but enjoy and improve his new toy the Clippers. He will put together the best organization every year, more money means more resources. Lakers being the main show in town is numberered. Clippers will become the best franchise in the league..Yes Houston was sold for more money, but Houston is not LA.. It'll be easier to sign top players to LA than Houston
