“Wowwwww. I’m flattered man, in fact I’m amazed.” A direct quote from Drake’s song “Charged Up” seems ironically fitting here considering the news.
Per Ramona Shelburne of ESPN, the joining of NBA superstars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard was devised at a very unlikely place- the Hidden Hills house of Drizzy Drake.
Paul George called to congratulate Kawhi Leonard on winning a championship and then “it took on a life of its own.” After countless text messages, phone calls and two meetings at Drake’s house 👀, they were both home in LA. Here’s why that meant so much to George. pic.twitter.com/7Hr6weE89r

Shelburne writes: “There were countless text messages and phone calls and then two in-person meetings at Drake’s house in Hidden Hills, California. (Drake had befriended Leonard during his season in Toronto and let Leonard — who lives in San Diego — stay there when he was in Los Angeles for free-agent meetings.) By July 1, they had decided to put their plan in motion: Leonard told the Clippers that he was interested in playing for them but only if they could improve their roster by adding an All-Star-caliber player like George.”
It’s really genius if you think about it. Leonard plotted to leave Toronto in Drake’s house. Hopefully, the rapper “feels no ways” about Leonard “doing it wrong”. Get it?
Haha, yeah you get it.
