Overreaction take...hard to see a healthy Clippers losing a seven game series to anyone. Such a good combo of length, grit, athleticism. They’re clearly more athletic and well rounded then Lakers without PG even

LeBron and Davis ball-watching. No boxing out. Something like 15-40. Lakers clanking 3s.

Nothing about Paul George being added to the mix is disruptive to what the Clips do.

They are going to be like the Memphis Grit and Grind teams except with a top5 offense.

Culture, coaching staff, and high level role players already on the same page and then add two plug and play two way superstars in Kawhi and PG13.

With no injuries, they’re the clear favorite in the League and that is not a Day 1 overreaction

If Danny Green didn't go off in that one quarter, that would've been a larger Clippers win.

Totally agree. Defensively they are an absolute nightmare as well. Kawhi, PG, Pat, Harrell, have fun with that . . .

Heres the thing about AD...he is a great talent, but does he really make any of his teammates better? I felt like I was watching the Pelicans at times. He will put up numbers, but I am not convinced he is a championship level player if he cant make those around him better via his tremendous ability.

I wonder this too. As much as I want to hate the Lakers, I’m gonna give them 25 games before they make snap judgements.

They have a lot of guys who can hit 3P and I think LeBron and AD are both going to spend the 1st 20-30 games trying to get the full team incorporated. One more high level role player via trade or buyout and I think come April the Lakers will be a very tough out, maybe even just behind the Clippers in the West.

LeBron just doesn't have that stamina anymore. He's not in peak form yet, but he needs fewer minutes.

Clippers are just super cohesive already

Lakers offense is just let AD or LBJ do their thing. No spacing, bad guard play and unimaginative. They need to get easier points and 3's. Their defense is also a mess. A decent pointguard would definitely help. LBJ cannot be the defacto pointguard, he needs to pick his spots on offense. Rondo, maybe?
