One of the craziest moves in NBA history is at the expense of a Kentucky Wildcat.
After almost a week of consideration, Kawhi Leonard will give the NBA balance. Instead of creating a superteam with LeBron James and Anthony Davis’ Lakers, he’s made one that will rival them in their own city.
After LeBron pulled strings to get Anthony Davis to LA, Leonard made a massive move to team up with Paul George in LA. To acquire George from Oklahoma City, Woj reports the Clippers traded Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Galinari and five first round picks.
The move has given the city of Los Angeles the two Finals frontrunners. To make it happen, Gilgeous-Alexander must pack his bags and learn to play alongside Russell Westbrook. An All-Rookie second team selection, SGA’s future is not quite as bright in Oklahoma City.
