The Los Angeles Lakers newcomer point guard Quinn Cook and 2018 NBA champion, shared his thoughts about the newly formed Kawhi Leonard-Paul George tandem and the Lakers-Clippers rivalry, per HoopsHype:
“It shocked the world. I didn’t think Kawhi Leonard was going to go there and then for them to get Paul George as well? It was shocking. It doesn’t matter what team you play for, you have to acknowledge it was a great move. I was a fan of the move from a basketball standpoint.
We obviously played them last year and they were tough, but they just got even tougher. It’s fun, man. I know Staples Center will be rocking every single night – whether the Lakers or the Clippers are playing. Being a fan of the Lakers growing up, I know a lot about the rivalry. But having two dominant teams in L.A. is so much fun, man,” Cook said.
