The Los Angeles Clippers made a statement when they signed not one but two superstars in the summer. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are set to lead the team to win their first NBA title ever, taking the optimism about this team to the sky.
They changed everything for the Clippers, as even their new teammates couldn’t get it together and did unthinkable things that day. For instance, Patrick Beverley reportedly went to the Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James after learning the great news.
ESPN’s Brian Windhorst told a story that he heard when that day happened on Adrian Wojnarowski’s The Woj Pod. According to Windhorst, Clippers guard Beverley allegedly went to James’ private room at a restaurant and rubbed it into the Los Angeles Lakers superstar when news about the move surfaced.
This story hasn’t been confirmed or denied yet, but it sounds like the type of things Beverley could do. The point guard isn’t afraid to get into people’s faces on the court, and one would think he won’t pass on the opportunity to celebrate the good news about his team to the King, their biggest rival this upcoming season.
The battle of Los Angeles is going to be one of the most discussed topics in the league next campaign, and all these stories only fuel the expectations to see both Angelenos teams going at it to rule the West, and the league.
