Kawhi Leonard, Paul George eager to make history for Clippers

Former Microsoft CEO Ballmer shows he still has that 'developers, developers, developers' energy

Kawhi Leonard might just be the best player in the National Basketball Association coming off his second National Basketball Association title, and first all-time for the Raptors in 2019.

Since Leonard's decision, there are new details emerging about his thought process and why he signed with the Clippers over the Lakers and the Toronto Raptors.

George said on Wednesday that joining Leonard in Los Angeles felt "like destiny."

What especially excites Ballmer and the Clippers is how George and Leonard are coming to a ready-made team, with deluxe Kia NBA Sixth Man Lou Williams, low-post big man Montrezl Harrell, defensive pest Patrick Beverley and young shooter Landry Shamet all able to supply ample and proven support. "If we go to the championship and win and we don't get any [media] coverage, that's fine with me".

CNN tweeted out the clip of the Clippers owner who was so excited about his team that he didn't know if he should give Leonard a handshake or a bro hug. That tandem was only temporary for a few minutes; IN sent Leonard to the Spurs for George Hill.

After playing second fiddle to the glitzier and more accomplished Los Angeles Lakers since moving to Los Angeles from San Diego in 1984 during the "Showtime" heyday, the Clippers savored their day.

"I just feel like that's just bad karma", Leonard said in reference to manipulating teams.

"That's not a reason I didn't sign with the Lakers". The two superstars both noted how they had almost played together for the Indiana Pacers early in their careers before Leonard was sent to the Spurs in a 2011 draft night trade.

"But we're both here in LA and it seemed it was destined that we're playing together".

Then, with a triumphant and knowing smile, he recalled his infamous comparison of Leonard to Jordan. "Can I say that now without being fined?"
