Dwyane Wade Can’t Believe Insane Coincidence Surrounding Lakers and Clippers

2 Min Read

Dwyane Wade recently tweeted a certain coincidence between the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, particularly about their star players.

Wade noticed that when Kawhi Leonard’s (2) and Paul George’s (13) number are placed side by side, they represent the area code 213, which can be found in the Los Angeles area. Moreover, Anthony Davis (3) and LeBron James’ (23) combined numbers (323) also represent an area code within the vicinity.

Here is more info about the two area codes from AreaCodeLocations.info:

“California area codes 213 and 323 currently serve the downtown Los Angeles area and a number of surrounding cities (Bell Gardens, Cudahy, Huntington Park, Montebello, South Gate, West Hollywood and more) respectively.”

Superstitious folks might find that fun fact from the former Miami Heat star as a sign that the Lakers and Clippers are fated to meet in the Western Conference Finals for the chance to advance to the 2020 NBA Finals.

Davis had to switch to No. 3 after joining the Lakers in a blockbuster trade last June. Both Davis and James wore No. 23 on their previous teams, which prompted the change in the former’s jersey number. The Lakers are considered one of a handful of favorites to win the title next year.

Leonard and George joined the Clippers early this month and quickly turned around the outlook of the organization. After years of playoff failures, they are now expected by many to not only make it to the championship round but also to take home the Larry O’Brien trophy.

He became a Heat fan the moment they acquired Tim Hardaway and his killer crossover, and lamented not seeing him and Alonzo Mourning win a championship. Seeing Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh play in Miami was a surreal moment for him and more so after they validated the Decision with back-to-back championships.
