Nobody saw this coming.

Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers had been a hot rumor all season long (with the Lakers not considered in the running according to the sources I spoke with), but that seemed to change after the Lakers landed Anthony Davis. The Lakers wanted to form a new superteam, rumors were everywhere the Lakers were at the front of the line...

Then boom, the Clippers make the blockbuster move and land Leonard while trading for Paul George. On a night an earthquake shut down Summer League, this was the real earth shaker.

NBA players (and fans) reacted on Twitter.
