Los Angeles Clippers fans weren't the only ones excited about 2019 NBA Finals MVP, Kawhi Leonard, announcing he had joined their team.

Two of the Clippers' best players from last season, Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams, were also quite pleased by the news of not only Leonard joining their squad, but also six-time NBA All-Star Paul George coming with him.

Just take a second to appreciate the jubilation in this video, after the two already appeared to be living it up in a casino before hearing the news.

For Beverley and Williams, the news couldn't have come at a better time. They are both coming off stellar seasons in which they exceeded most expectations by helping the Clippers take the Golden State Warriors to six games in the first round of the 2019 NBA Playoffs.

The Clippers are now the new betting favorites to win next year's NBA title, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. And if the season plays out accordingly, these guys could be celebrating something much bigger around this time next year as well.
