After enjoying a short break away from the media, Kawhi Leonard is back in the spotlight in Los Angeles. However, it was actually Steve Ballmer who stole the show at his introductory press conference.
Leonard was the biggest prize on the market in free agency. Not only did he make a bold decision to join the Clippers, but he persuaded Paul George to join forces with him.
While the Clippers have a lot to prove this upcoming season, Ballmer can’t hold back his excitement.
Before officially introducing Leonard and George at the press conference, Ballmer said “I’m just fired up to be here today. It’s pretty cool.”
He also let out a loud cheer which resulted in the majority of the media members in attendance applauding him.
Check it out.

Los Angeles is among the trendy picks to win the 2020 NBA Finals.
In addition to having Leonard and George on the roster, the Clippers also have a tremendous coaching staff led by Doc Rivers. They also have role players in Patrick Beverley, Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell.
Even without any bonafide superstars on their roster, the Clippers showed promise against the Warriors this past postseason.
It’s going to be an entertaining season in the NBA, especially with no clear-cut favorite in the Western Conference.
