    Well obviously there's free will and no one forced any team to do anything. But in this era where players control teams, Kawhi more or less screwed over the Spurs and the Clippers. And to a lesser degree the Raptors.

    Cancel out? AD eats Jokic alive whenever they play. LeBron is a million times better than Murray.

    He could have gone to the Lakers but he believed his own media hype for winning a lucky ring so he thought he could beat LeBron. Was getting too cocky with the whole "new king in LA" commercial bs too. Got exposed for the fraud that he is.

    if he had gone to the Lakers, we basically would have been back to where we were with the Warriors (super team)

    If LeBron doesn’t win this year, he has no excuses. No Giannis, no Kawhi, no PG13. The two best players left are on one team.

    Didn't watch the game but apparently Kawhi and PG went 2-18 combined from the field in 2nd half.

    Once Clips went 3-1 up you could tell they started getting a bit cocky. At least that's what it felt like to me especially when they were up big in game 5. Can't be cocky when you haven't won anything.

    George saying this team wasn't built to win now..... uhhh yes it was. That was evident as soon as they traded SGA and a truck load of picks for you. Good to see Playoff P with a staggering 10 pts in a winner take all game.

    Also - LOL



    I don't think hes one to live in the past or ask "what if" and after they acquired PG, he 100% thought they were good enough to win the west (most of us did). But Raptors were bringing back nearly the same team + adding guys like Davis, so staying there could have very well resulted in a repeat finals appearance.

    Meh, Nets rebounded pretty good. They were able to hire Marks, and then still draft/acquire guys like LeVert, Allen, Dinwiddie and Harris. Then of course secured the ultimate coup with KD & Kyrie. They were able to sign an elite free agent before Boston did.

    I think a team to watch next year is Brooklyn.

    KD/Kyrie with a deep bench, Don't see any eastern team beating them if they stay healthy.

    Time to Rebuild
    Home Page:
    The Clippers secondary scoring never got going in the playoffs. Lou Will never recovered from his little strip club adventure and Trez came in broken and looked that way throughout. Kawhi was pretty much the only player they could rely on throughout.

    Paul George really is something. Actually, it seems that outside of Kawhi, those So-Cal players are all humongous chokers (Harden, PG-13, Westbrick, etc.)

    The "Bubble" might be what ends up saving Doc's job. They perhaps fool themselves into thinking that if the games were played in regular settings, they make it to the conference finals.

    The major upgrade the Clippers need, outside of coaching, is at point guard. Could they perhaps get Chris Paul from rebuilding OKC? CP3 has a big contract and OKC already have all of the Clippers assets though lol

    I’d get a C before I get a PG. especially after last night. Beverly was excellent but they had no answer for Jokic all series and when Zubac got into foul trouble, Green and Trezz had no answer.

    If KD is still the player he once was they have a chance to win the east

    The problem is his injury is a career killer in most instances, a blown Achilles is usually a death sentence

    I like Durant a lot, and I think he's actually become underrated as a talent due to the GSW move so I hope he comes back full force, I'm just highly skeptical

    imo it depends on where they trade levert too. GMs KD and Kyrie see this asset at max value so i think it depends on which PF/SF they get in a trade

    Allen/DAJ
    insert PF here or maybe Durant
    Durant or maybe SF
    Harris
    Kyrie

    that looks a lot more dangerous then levert off the bench especially since he is a more impact-full player with the ball in his hands which wont work with kyrie and KD imo

    LOL

    People seem to really be enjoying the Clippers failure

    I dont recall a sports team getting this much ridicule especially from people within game (Lots of players talking trash , taking pleasure in this , etc)
