Quinn Cook excited about Lakers-Clippers rivalry after big moves
Quinn Cook admitted that he is excited about the rivalry between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Los Angeles Clippers after the two teams made major roster moves this summer.
Cook told Alex Kennedy of Hoopshype that being a Lakers fan growing up, he is very familiar with the Lakers-Clippers rivalry. He believes that it will reach a new level in the next several years, and it will be very good for Los Angeles fans and the NBA in general.
“I know Staples Center will be rocking every single night – whether the Lakers or the Clippers are playing,” Cook said. “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.”
The Clippers are now the favorites to win the title after two huge moves. They struck a blockbuster trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder to acquire Paul George. Shortly after finalizing the trade with the Thunder, superstar Kawhi Leonard opted to sign with the Clippers. It was later revealed that Leonard asked George to request for trade.
The Lakers, on the other hand, traded for superstar forward Anthony Davis. And shortly after Leonard joined the Clippers, the Lakers inked deals with Danny Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Quinn Cook, Avery Bradley, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo, JaVale McGee, and Alex Caruso.
