People all over Kawhi with winning a title with a team that was 17-5 without him AND in the conference finals last season.

Now he goes with another star to an already established 50 win team.

Yet, somehow Bron will have the Lakers go further if healthy.

There is finally parity in the NBA. Literally any team that makes a leap and has good talent can compete for a title. As a Bulls fan Iím praying our young core can develop and make the playoffs within next 2 seasons. If you can make it, you can win any series with the talent being distributed now.

maybe but KL and his backstabbing **** just took care of that as well... Lebron/AD/Kuz/Boban/Curry and several other guys who would have been a laker could have made their team insane... Now because of that POS KL they have to over pay for green/rondo or trade for dragic and rely on cousins...

Whatever. **** LeBron and the Lakers. That punk can only win when he teams with two stars. He's a joke and doesn't deserve anymore titles. I truly believe this means he won't be winning one again any time soon. If Klay comes back healthy, GS and the Clips would take them out in the playoffs.

Sources: Leonard and George met in LA earlier in week. Clippers had long been frontrunners for Leonard, but it is unlikely he would've made final leap to sign without PG trade. Clippers imagined Leonard as part of a Lakers Big 3 --- and knew they had no choice. They did OKC deal.

It is ****ed if he KNEW but kept dangling his services until another team met his demands. Iíd be pissed if I was in the Laker organization. Less so in Toronto because they were over the cap anyways and probably wouldnít have done anything if they knew he was gone all along.

Did LeBron not make teams wait on his decisions in the past when his mind was also made up? He took the easiest roads possible to championships. KL decided not to take the easy road, but he did make his road easier by holding out and the Lakers missing out on others.

Kawhi's camp planned this to perfection. They met with Clippers first so they can cook something up and when days went past and Clippers are nearing a deal, Clippers were a no-brainer. That is why them Clips are so quiet. Which ultimately meant that Clips were his priority all along and LAL was the last contrary to reports.

This entire thing was the League doing. Whatever it took, they didn't want Kawhi to join the Lakers. & I am guessing no star player wanted to go to Toronto.

OKC got assets, LA has two teams that can truly contend, & Toronto got a championship.

This is collusion.

I'm just glad that the media hacks were kept out of the loop. Just hours ago one of the had "sources" that said KL was going to Raptors 99%, while another said Lakers 99%, but both agreed that Clips were pretty much out of the running. Watching their reactions will be hilarious once they pick their jaws up off the floor.

Totally fair guys... totally fair... becaus everyone hates lebron and the lakers its totally fair... **** the thunder who had their hand forced right?


[Wojnarowski] After Leonard pushed George to find a way to get to the Clippers, Paul George approached the team and requested a trade, league sources tell ESPN. OKC was left with no choice and made the best out of a difficult situation, per sources.

If thatís true, the Thunder got a helluva haul for a guy who wanted out. Clippers had to do it, though. All of those picks/Gallo/SGA for Kawhi and George? Gotta do it. Now they should trade RWB to a team like Miami I guess for more picks (assuming they have any left or whomever else bites) plus whatever youngins they can get.



Wondering if the Lakers could have traded Kuzma plus picks and absorb RWBís salary into their open cap space? Then again, I guess they donít have anything left after getting AD.

If thatís true, the Thunder got a helluva haul for a guy who wanted out.

This is going to get lost in the mix. 3 LAC picks unprotected, 1 Miami unprotected pick, 1 Miami protected pick, 2 swaps. That's the most picks involved in a single trade in league history. Not to mention SGA who had a decent rookie year and Gallo who's going to be an expiring and another asset for them to flip.

I really don't get why the Thunder did this, most those 1st round picks will be in the late 20's! They traded him to a rival without holding out for a better return. PG 13, had 2 years left on his deal, if they would have held out they could have got a better return, when you dissect this trade, itbwas a little lopsided!

Wow, what an insane heist from the LA Clippers! Absolutely nobody saw the Paul George move, making Kawhi's signing possible. I am really interested in knowing more about how this became possible. Jerry West, if he already wasn't before, is now the absolute undisputed greatest GM in the league by a huge margin. The guy had a hand in building the 80's Lakers, he negotiated the trade for Kobe and signed Shaq, drafted Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, Draymond Green, and Kevon Looney for the Warriors, signed Steph to a very team friendly extension coming off his rookie contract ultimately making it possible to sign Durant in the summer of 2016. Now, he had a very impressive first year with the Clippers and the team won 48 games and made the playoffs in a killer Western Conference before pulling off the heist of the offseason in pairing Kawhi/PG13 together.

The move makes the Los Angeles Clippers the favorites to win the championship next season. Yeah, OKC got a ton of picks (7 total 1st round picks including pick swaps) but Kawhi (28) and PG (29) are going to be around for a long time. The Clippers have some nice pieces around these two in Bev, Williams, Harrell, and Zubac. From a macro perspective I think this move will ultimately mean Russell Westbrook will be leaving OKC within the next year, so we'll see where he goes and if that changes the landscape of the league.

As for the Raptors and Lakers, they are both in a tough spot. The Raptors knew this was a possibility when they acquired Leonard from San Antonio. In retrospect the trade was still worth it because they won the NBA Championship because of it. Toronto will still be a playoff team in the East, but not the championship contender they were. Now that Kawhi's gone I actually think they should see if there is a trade market for Kyle Lowry and try to get a couple assets for him. Siakam is a future All Star, Anunoby is going to be a good starter at worst, and VanVleet is one of the best backup point guards in the league (and could still get better). They have a foundation to be a championship contender again in the future, but this killed their chances in 19-20.

The Lakers not only missed on Kawhi, but they waited on him so long they missed out on most other free agents as well. There are still a few guys out there, but unless Kuzma turns into a star it looks like the Lakers will field a superstar duo instead of a trio. There are still ways the Lakers can improve the roster for next year, Korver is out there and they need to take a hard look at Demarcus Cousins. It's possible they could somehow swing a deal for Goran Dragic from the Heat, and they of course can always bring Rondo back. Still, they could have gotten some choicer free agents had they not chased Kawhi and they come out of this burned.

The dust is almost settled from this earth shattering off season and after all the changes, the 19-20 NBA chamionship is up for grabs. This is basically the league

West
Clippers-Kawhi/PG plus a deep roster
Lakers-Lebron/AD/Kuzma plus an unkown roster
Warriors-Steph/Klay/Draymond/D-Lo/Cauley Stein
Blazers-Lillard/McCollum
Jazz-Mitchell/Connley/Gobert plus a deep roster
Nuggets-Jokic/Murray/Harris plus a deep roster
Houston-Harden/CP3
Pelicans-Zion/Ingram/Ball plus a deep roster
Spurs-DeRozan/Aldridge plus a deep roster

East
Bucks-Giannis with a bunch of shooters/defenders
76ers-Probably the best starting lineup in the NBA
Pacers-Oladipo/Brogdon/Turner plus a deep roster
Brooklyn-Kyrie plus a deep roster (with KD coming)
Boston-Kemba/Tatum/Hayward/Brown
Toronto-Lowry with a deep roster
Miami-Butler and a few pieces (will probably look different before season starts)
Hawks-A young trio of Young/Collins/Reddish

Sources: Leonard and George met in LA earlier in week. Clippers had long been frontrunners for Leonard, but it is unlikely he would've made final leap to sign without PG trade. Clippers imagined Leonard as part of a Lakers Big 3 --- and knew they had no choice. They did OKC deal.What is it you find wrong here

Really tho, PG wanted out and the Clips mortgaged their future on this working. OKC could keep fielding middle of the pack teams and paying crazy tax, or they could get a boatload of picks and reduce salary. Word was they were looking to move Adams to reduce their tax burden, now they have room to retool around Westbrook/Adams, or they can ship everyone out and get more assets to rebuild with.

Following the reporting it sounds like the Lakers were in 3rd because they had stars, just not the ones he preferred. Sounds like Tor and LAC have been trying a PG trade, but Kawhi kinda wanted a deadline for it but wanted to give those teams more than 12 hours to get it done.

It won't get talked about but the Knicks look like freaking geniuses right now. Not signing Kevin Durant and Kyrie was incredibly smart given their injury history and the fact that that duo will never top so many of the other better duos. Biggest thing...THEY canceled the Kawhi Leonard meeting early because they felt like they were being played and there was no way he'd sign. Then, they got a bunch of solid players on short-term contracts. Yes, they areny going anywhere in the next few years but that was a given anyway. Now teams like the Lakers that put all their eggs in the Kawhi Leonard basket are looking like fools.

They were going nowhere with the core. No better time to trade George coming off a career year.

You MUST be a laker. Your thoughts are irrational. The Lakers created the bed that they live in. The front office has to be smarter

As a knick fan, the 2 major nba cities, supposedly, have people running them that are in over their head and don't have great plans for building a team. And Jerry west had to go work for the enemies and the Knicks don't respect their history as well.

And the Lakers have gotten rid of every top pick in the last 3 years to appease LeBron who came there for Hollywood, not bb.

Ny knicks franchise value is top 1-2, despite all the losing. If Pel's aren't relevant the franchise values sinks and hurts the nba more. I'm not calling it a fix but would;t be surprised if it was, two of the lowest value franchises got the top two pick.

In th nhl it was like when the Pens were almost about to fold and got the top pick in Crosby the first time they had a lotto. Edmonton another financially struggling team got like 3-4 number 1 overall picks within 4-6 years iirc.

Sports leagues are also a business, so there are certain elements i wouldn't be surprised if they fixed just to keep owners pockets in line and franchises value on the up tick.

The Clippers did give up a ton but with Miami's improved roster literally all of those picks could be low. The swap in '25 and '26 pick are dicey but this team already has the depth they need. They won't need picks for the next 4 years and how could you not be confident in them to keep it going for another 2-3 years after that?

A defensive big who can slide laterally/protect the rim, we got 2 who can do 1 but suck at the other. IDK why we got Harkless but I guess we're playing 1G, 3 Swings and a big. We dont have a true playmaker to get the team going outside of Kawhi like the Raps did with Lowry but Im hoping PG can revive some of the playmaking ability he was developing before Lance and RWB stifled that part of his game. No true stretch big without Gallo and Tobi could hurt too.

A defensive big who can slide laterally/protect the rim, we got 2 who can do 1 but suck at the other. IDK why we got Harkless but I guess we're playing 1G, 3 Swings and a big. We dont have a true playmaker to get the team going outside of Kawhi like the Raps did with Lowry but Im hoping PG can revive some of the playmaking ability he was developing before Lance and RWB stifled that part of his game. No true stretch big without Gallo and Tobi could hurt too.

Clippers should have asked for Myers Leonard instead of Harkless in that deal.

Clip city, chip city

Congrats bro on luring Kawhi. Hopefully Clips and Doc can finish off what they wanted to do with lob city. Now it's clamp city with KL, PG and PB.

In a decade we will make a list of all the players those picks produced and it will not come close to equaling what they got by acquiring the two best 2-way players in the NBA in their primes. And the likely hardware.

Weíll see. Iím just saying giving away that many picks doesnít make him a genius. Thatís a no brainer from OKC.

Yeah it might not be the greatest move but given their circumstance all the gms would of caved in their position. Clips never been close to winning **** all, they saved cap and had to show something for it. Next year free agent class is going to be weak.

Paul George a geek man

First he didnít go to LA and said if they wanted him they should hand traded for him . Which was freaking dumb


Then Russ throws him this big party to show they love and want him , re ups and says he feel can win a ship with Russ in OKC .


Now that Kawhi lured him there behind the scenes he comes out the blue and ask for a trade to the Clippers



PG scared of the spotlight man , he knew a possibility of Bron going to the Lakers so he made up a dumb excuse to not go because he know mostly being Bron teammate means getting the blame .


PG stayed in OKC Cuz he knew Westbrook would shoulder the blame but then it ended up him being better than Russ and he didnít like that [emoji24][emoji24][emoji24][emoji24]

Now he got Kawhi who basically the terminator so he donít have to worry about getting blamed or shouldering everything.


If you thought KD and Russ didnít talk for a min Russ about to Thanos snap this guy

I see them starting Kawhi and PG at the Forward spots and Shamet remaining the starting 2. I don't see why JayMichael Green won't be back on the room exception at this point. I think he and Harkless will share time at the 4 off the bench. Harkless has never really been healthy, I see a lot of load management with him lol. The lineup should balance out nicely beside the no natural playmaker thing which might not be relevant.

C Zubac/Harrell/Kabengele
PF Kawhi/Green/Harkless
SF George/McGruder/Harkless/Mann
SG Shamet/Williams/Wallace - think Sindaruis is gone.
PG Beverley/Robinson/need a FA here

This is hilarious. I can understand the Lakers fans being disappointed.

But it is hilarious seeing the Lebron fan boys freaking out about this. Yeah sorry your boy is actually going to have to compete instead of steamroll over people with 2 top 5 players playing with him

Hilarious and pathetic, quite frankly.

ďWhat you want might make you cry
And what you need might pass you by
If you donít catch it
And what you need ironically
Can turn out what you want to be
If you just let itĒ

-anyone know whoís lyrics these are?

Anyway, I think the Lakers made out just fine without KL, and I think the Lakers team is better than the Clippers.

I like the move from KL, it was a little shiesty but it was within his right so Iím cool with it. Lakers had the choice to wait.

But I donít think the Lakers got screwed at all. There is nobody besides KL that deserved a max to join the Lakers.

Also everyone who got signed on day one and two were severely overpaid.

The only way they could correctly fill the roster is to wait for the leftovers after the overpays...plus they needed to add pieces that were worth 10 mill for minimums.

I love what the Lakers and Clippers were able to do.

If KL went to my he Lakers, every ring won would be pretty much meaningless, and thus any subsequent ring gained by Bron would mean nothing.

The league and everything that happens means something now and itís a beautiful thing!

I just wanna watch the Clippers play defense in the post season. Nobody really plays defense during the regular season, but in the post season during crunch time they're almost gonna be impossible to score on. Zubac is a bit slow, but they might be able to grab a more athletic big to make it almost unfair.

I would have liked to see them retain Wallace. Not sure who you can get better than him to fill out the bottom 5 of the roster or about $1.5 mil? I do look forward to hopefully seeing him crack a rotation somewhere. Nice player!

Can't way to see that postseason Clippers defense. Refs will swallow the whistles a little more and allow them to be more physical.

quite a solid haul for OKC in this deal. They will still compete for the playoffs if Russ isnt deal or they can deal him for another decent haul and start the rebuild. his contract might be a bit of an issue.
