George Paul says the Clippers have the best duo in the NBA, gets waxed by a young team while shooting bricks at the corner of the backboard (whenever he is forced to shoot since he prefers to hide on offense in 4th quarters), then turns around and says expectations were not "championship or bust" for their team? What a joke and a (bleep) he is! You want to complain about chemistry after load-managing your way through the year and half-assing the season? Karma is a (bleep)


PG has very bad memory. On an interview with Kevin Hart he said the clips put together a great team with the goal of winning now (paraphrasing but it was along these lines).

Clippers are rewarding Rivers for such a great job by bringing him back for another year.

Remember when KL held the lakers hostage waiting for him to decide if he wanted to play with us? While we watched free agent after free agent sign elsewhere while we were trying to fill out our roster?

Yeah......God was watching. Enjoy your seat on the couch KL

Meh, I tink it's funny that their historic collapse is being used as a marketing gimmick. Social media has expanded the spread of pop culture in ways we don't even appreciate.

Yeah but I hate corporate twitter accounts. Just gross that multi-billion dollar conglomerates pretend that their one of us.

Trolling the Clippers is usually pretty dope tho, I'll give you that.

His failure to make adjustments in this game was an embarrasment. And where is Ty Lue in all of this? Between the two of you, you didn't see running post doubles at Jokic all game was basically how you helped yourselves get blown out?

That said, Kawhi looked very mortal in this series. The guy who was getting any midrange shot he wanted and flashed all-defense skill was not there this series.

Nice job, Kuz.


Basically what I figured, it was the Clippers and the media talking heads who were speaking like they were the biggest and baddest mofos in the NBA... but the Lakers were minding there own business

Remember SAS during the regular season when he said that the Clippers players told him they had a bunch of dogs but we didn’t have 1 LOL.

Twitter was in shambles last night. Dame and CJ was trolling them for the filth. Magic and Worthy were on them too repping for the OGs. It was a whole GLORIOUS mess!!!


You gotta check out Oshea Jr.'s twitter. By far the best roasting and the dude went non-stop for a period.

Hey come on now, don't Clipper Fan Lives matter? Or at least their feelings?

How about showing some compassion for the dozen or so that are out their, lost and lonely after being betrayed once again...

Guys I was just thinking today.

I remember the Portland Lakers series of 2000. The Lakers were up 3-1 and Portland came back to force a game 7 and had a large lead in the 4th. Than the big comeback and the rest is history.

It is just crazy that Kobe and Shaq were one quarter from being like Kawhi and PG and their response was completely different. That is mind boggling.

I think the Clippers are winning it all next year. It took Lebron's Heat 2 season to win the championship after all!

If I were running the Clippers, I'd basically blow this team up and start over.

If it would be wrong to trade Kawhi and PG now, I'd ride out next season, and let Kawhi and PG walk in 2021.

Maybe I'd resign Montrezl if he has the work ethic and desire to improve his game, and he signs for reasonable $, but that's it, and it's only because he's young.

Other than maybe Kawhi, I don't think the key guys on the Clippers have what it takes mentally to win a championship. The roster is flawed, just like the Lob City rosters were flawed.

Unless they improve mentally next season, I'd start over. They messed up by trading a good young player in SGA and several draft picks for a career playoff choker in PG. All they can do is eat it and own up to it, and start over.

Haha. Right?
That was the dumbest take by Marcellus.
Miami at least went to the Finals. Dippers barely got the 2nd round.
Maybe dippers can get to wcf next year.

Also, here's a sweet tweet

The worst collapse of the year is also the best season in team history

Kawhi Limpasaurus Leonard would have to lead his team past a rejuvenated Curry, Klay, and whichever big name they trade for to win it next year and I see no evidence of Kawhi doing that.

I have Lakers and GSW in the WCF's next year and it's going to be brutal

Oh I agree on that. That’s what I find funny (not in a humorous way). Even the corporates become part of pop-culture due to social media.

My guess is the "Low IQ" guy is PG13.
