Kawhi ain’t leaving San Diego if anything he’s shipping out PG. the clippers are a team that rely on their 3 point shooting but they don’t have the shooters to be consistently on fire from 3 point range. In the playoffs their lack of playmaker will be exposed and those open 3s they drain in regular season won’t be as open


Just to think, #2 could have 1 title already in LA and another one (maybe) on the way. What could have been for him

The clips' first rematch with Dallas since their 50 point loss at home. In fact their next two games are going to be against each other.

Dallas coming in from a big win against Denver too.

it would be crazy to imagine what a defensive team Lakers can be with AD/Kawhi/LBJ/AC rotating to guys

He's one of the rare, blatant Laker fans in the media. The vast majority hate Lebron and the Lakers.

I like his enthusiasm for the Lakers but I have no idea why he hate Tom Brady so much.

He's a blatant LeBron fan. So whatever team he's on he'll be in blatant support of.

Nothing wrong with talking. But if you talk, then be prepared to get clowned on if you (bleep) the bed yet again when the games count the most.

Yup, true colors coming out after they acted all humbled to start this season which if we're being honest they really had no choice after the epic collapse in the Playoffs with the entire NBA and media world laughing at them for a couple straight months. Pretty sure PG13 was talking pretty wildly recently as well.

You can't come out talking like that when the last time you were in the Playoffs you had an all time level choke job after all the anticipation for the full season of hyping them up. If they somehow pulled it out this season and won it all then that's something you can get away with saying next year maybe but saying it now is just a joke tbh.

I love it though, let them feel themselves this early in the year.

Just wanted to stop in and laugh at the Slippers some.

Luka dropped 42 on them and they lose yet again, 4-6 in their last 10.

I didn’t know this, but they haven’t won consecutive games since February 14 & 15.

I’ll file that under: “Things You Love To See.”

So much for Morris Sr.’s trash talk

Why is PG and Kawhi afraid to guard Luka? THey are supposedly the premier perimeter defenders in the league.

Yup all is well again Lakers up Clipps down!

But to be fair they sat PatBeve and Ibaka, though seems we been missing 2 or 3 rotation guys since the first 20 games.

I can’t speak for Ibaka, but Bev has given them basically zilch this season anyway. He can’t stay healthy, which is a big problem for them since that means that Reggie Jackson will be the big minute PG.

I’ll reserve judgment, but unless their 3 ball goes nuclear in a game, they are just average at best. The vast majority of their wins come with 15+ 3’s.

Luka embarrassed PG on a late game possession and sent him stumbling almost out of bounds as Luka scored a floater over Zubac, iirc.

I mean they got Tyronn Lue as head coach. He is worse than Doc Rivers. I have no idea why Ballmer thought that he was a good head coach.

They are 29th in terms of shot attempts within 5 feet.

Maybe don’t rely on strictly jump shots and get to the rim?

PG13 is the king of deflection and excuses. He is a career loser especially given how much talent he has.

Pretty rough, the Clippers have had several games lately where they got legit dominated while playing near full strength (Both stars and most role players at least). It makes you wonder how Kawhi will look once the Playoffs get here if he continues to play the majority of games in a condensed schedule as well. Not a good look when they aren't even doing load management and still dropping games like this.

Pretty crazy how we still have a nice 2 game lead on them while missing AD and a slew of other rotation players the last month. If we win the next 3 we should be back in 2nd and right on the heels of Utah for the top seed.

Obviously there's plenty of season to still be played but all things considered we're in pretty fantastic shape in the Western Conference.

That was the dude (bleep) about Doc Rivers mis-using him as a catch and shoot guy or something when PG thought of himself more as a guy running the pick and roll. Doc pointed out that PG ran more pick and rolls under Doc than PG ever had before in his career. Dude isn’t exactly a master of self reflection.

At this point this isn't a debate is it? Luka is considered a top 10 player, top 5 for some others. PG not exactly close. If we add the intangibles, then the gap just widens.
