I am watching them play the Bulls right now and have been watching them on and off slightly all season, I try not to watch them at all because I really hate how we share a city with them and how quite frankly they are playing much, much better than we are right now.

They seem to be all across the board a powerhouse, they are dismantling the bulls right now and handled the Heat with ease. Can we really say that we are a better team than they are? And does anybody think they have a real good shot at winning the championship?

I feel like we should be talking about them more because they are a real threat this year, and oh how it pains me to say that :/

Its a long season, I would say the Clippers are playing the best basketball right now.But I feel the Spurs and Heat are in first gear while the Lakers and Thunder are still adjusting to big personnel changes.

Yeah, I feel like right now they are one of if not the best team in the league, however that does not mean they will still be there later in the year.

They can if the finals were right now, there's no doubt they are playing much better than we are. However, I believe we will catch up with them and beat them when it counts. I'm smelling a Lakers-Clippers WCF.

No they cant, the ball will be in Blake Griffin's hands a lot and he cant shoot free throws. Not to mention CP3 hasn't exactly shown he can make it through the season and be healthy in the playoffs. He struggled quite a bit in the spurs series

Hopefully we see an LA vs LA it would be about equal their bench is better but our starters are better. Would be fun to see how they would try to outplay each other.

No. They finish 4th/5th in the conference and are eliminated in the late first or early 2nd round.

Blake Griffin will need to step it up. I also don't like them on defense. But, I think CP3 can be the best guy on a championship team and they have good role players on offense.

Depends on health and consistency. Right now they look good, they look like a contender, but so do the Grizzlies and the Knicks. Do you consider them title contenders ? Probably not .. The Clippers are better than we are right now, but I'd much rather see the Lakers peak in May, not in November ;)

They have good and solid role players but I think in an high anticipated match against OKC or Spurs in the 2nd round, they would again fell apart, just becaue of their still "unexpierienced" playoff trips..

I don't see them as the favorites obviously, but I still think it's possible.

They're playing well, have a solid team and when you have CP3 he can carry you to wins. Look what he used to do with the Hornets...

Word I don't think it's impossible if they stay healthy, get hot at the right time, and have favorable matchups. I wouldn't bet on it at all but at the same time I really wouldn't be surprised after Dallas won in 2011 I'm never gonna act like I know for sure whos gonna win it or not when it comes to the tops teams in the league.

I don't see it.

Regular season is one thing, but the playoffs is a different beast (they aren't ready to face the playoffs as a team).

Only way I see them winning is in a video game, and that is only if you play as them or save before you simulate and quit before losses.
