Paul George And Kawhi Leonard To LA Clippers Due To Jerry West

Paul George And Kawhi Leonard To LA Clippers Due To Jerry West

ONN – Paul George And Kawhi Leonard To LA Clippers Due To Jerry West. Jerry West, the LA Clippers front office mastermind consultant who’s credited with the deals for Leonard and George, also known as the “The Logo” for the NBA, strikes again.

Kawhi Leonard is leaving the Toronto Raptors and will join a Los Angeles NBA team, it’s just not the LA Lakers. Paul George and Kawhi Leonard will become the third set of elite NBA players to form a “Super Team” and join a new organization for them. Leonard, the free agent, is joined by Paul George, who reportedly was so eager to get away from Russell Westbrook, that he engineered his own trade away from The Oklahoma City Thunder.

The OKC Thunder don’t leave empty-handed. They give up Paul George, but get four unprotected first-round picks, one protected first-round pick, and two pick swaps, as well as All-Rookie point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Danilo Gallinari.

In other words, The OKC Thunder got rid of Paul George and pushed the “rebuild” button.

Anthony Davis left the New Orleans Pelicans to join the Lakers, forming the first of these Super Teams. The second “Super Team” was Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, joining the Brooklyn Nets. And this, the pairing of Paul George And Kawhi Leonard, and going to the LA Clippers, and not the Lakers, marks the third.

What’s equally interesting is the NBA Western Conference is the beneficiary of all of this NBA player movement. Moreover, it was done, first, to target the always-powerful Golden State Warriors, then as the other teams seemed to try and keep up with each other.

The Golden State Warriors Are The Ultimate Winners, Here

All of this started a year ago, first with speculation that Kevin Durant was headed to the LA Lakers, and then the target changed to the New York Knicks, for KD. But the overall idea was to build the Lakers into a team that could challenge the Golden State Warriors. The LeBron addition didn’t go as planned, so the talk was adding KD and another star player. But all of that fizzled in a dizzing set of complicated relationships.

At the end of the day, a very damaged Kevin Durant left the Warriors for the Brooklyn Nets, and this space doesn’t think he will ever be the same player, again, once he returns. His replacement is D’Angelo Russell: a young sharp-shooter who will combine with rookie Jordan Poole to turn the Splash Brothers into a Splash Army. Given their style of play, it’s hard to see that the Lakers and Clippers will battle each other, while the Warriors will emerge victorious over both.

Stay tuned.
