    Sort of a funny undercurrent as well: the narrative that Kawhi doesn't want to form a superteam, but then calls up Paul George. Automatically it makes it look like Paul George is a) a beta even though he was in the Top 3 in MVP voting last year and b) not considered by Kawhi to be a superteam, so... not that super.

    Just saw a bit of their dual interview with Rachel Nichols where she asks how close Kawhi was to going to on the other teams. He hesitated before saying “I was very close.” I’m obviously biased, but I didn’t sense an ounce of sincerity in his statement. The more he speaks, the more obvious he was going to the Clippers all along. It’ll be more fun beating those 2 than having a cakewalk with 3 superstars.

    Clippers were his 1st choice all along but it's clear to me Kawhi gave them deadline to get a deal done or he would have signed with us .

    Then he gave his usual dummy when asked about players power in the press conference .

    People think he's one of the realest but I think he's one of the manipulative/fakest player out there

    There was talk of Kawhi trying to get guys to come to Toronto to play with him also. It was probably a tougher sell. We were his backup to his backup. I want to crush this guy every time we play them. I hope he and PG are booed relentlessly.

    :Magicwow4:Kawhi Leonard Calls Teaming Up With Paul George 'Probably' His 'First Time Playing With Elite Player'
    I don't know what Kawhi is trying to prove,but people in San Antonio now absolutely hate him,and they're going to destroy Clippers in every game, especially that Dunkan now an assistant coach,He is crazy mother******,and a I am glad that he is not a Laker.

    This is the same guy who said "it was an easy call to go to the Clippers" when they got Paul George while LeBron James and Anthony Davis were sitting across the hall, so yeah. I'd say he's not the best talent evaluator.

    At the end of the day, the guy didn't want to be a Laker and I don't begrudge him for that on a personal level. But as a fan, I think he's a moron and when he fails to win over the next few years, he'll be looking for a new home as will Paul George. Especially because his old home (LA) is going to turn on him when he's out walking around. San Diego is a Laker town too.

    Clipper night at Dodger games are going to be fun. That'll probably be the only time either of them will be throwing out the first pitch.

    I can’t wait for the boos. Both of them could have been Lakers and they chose the Clippers, blows my mind still.

    They have a Clipper night, seriously? Why, so team members can be booed? Not sure if you're kidding or serious.

    Yeah they do. They have "_______ nights" that feature other LA professional teams or the surrounding colleges.

    So far on their event page,
    https://www.mlb.com/dodgers/tickets/specials
    Only shows until September and no Clipper night yet. Lakers night is August 20th though.

    We can't let this happen. Dodger Stadium getting used to not booing Clipper players and hopefully Ballmer some day.

    :No2:

    I got no plan though. Above my pay grade.

    I’m sure no collusion for Kawhi to not go to the Lakers went on here. OKC was clearly eager to give up George, I’m glad it was so easy for Kawhi to hand pick him as a partner. F*** this league

    I hate Doc. I hate PG. And I hate Leonard. I want us to blow them out of the water every game. Embarrass them. Make them not want to go out in public, talk to the media, or make eye contact with anyone kind of embarrassment.
