The Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly preparing to make a run at Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard.

According to a report from The Ringer, “league sources say the Lakers will pursue” the two-time NBA champion coming off his second ring. (RELATED: Toronto Raptors Win The NBA Championship After Beating The Warriors In Game 6)

The move would come after the Lakers already traded for Anthony Davis.

If this happens, you can go ahead and prepare for the league to absolutely blow up. LeBron getting Davis and Leonard in the same offseason would be outrageous.

They’re already favored to win it all in 2020. If that happens, they’re going to be favored to absolutely obliterate most teams they step on the court with.

I’m getting excited just thinking about what adding Leonard to the mix might mean.

It’s crazy the Lakers have a real shot at going from one of the worst teams in the league to arguably the best in one single offseason.

Of course, this isn’t to say Leonard for sure is going the Lakers. A lot could happen over the next couple months, but the fact they’r reportedly going to take a run should make fans very happy.

What a great time to be a basketball fan.
