You can take Chi and Portland off that list and we were terrible when they beat us everybody could beat us during that stretch. I'm not trying to take anything away from the Clips their playing great I just don't see them as the clear cut best in the league right now I think Memphis and NY are playing just as well on both ends.


Us? Ok I get that. But Chi is still a solid playoff team that you can't just overlook. Mainly because of their coaching. And in Portland on the 2nd end of a back-to-back is not the easiest thing to do. Just my opinions though....

Glad to see you guys "enjoying" the Clippers (if you will), and it's good that the Lakers have caught back up and are looking like they're back in stride, the storm from LA is coming and it's a two headed monster, I like it. Our city is going to do some major damage in the playoffs.

Cheers guys


No I don't like this, I'll take the Clips winning the chip over Miami/Boston but it will still hurt to see them hang their first banner at staples after all the fun years of them being our punching bag.

The two headed monster may devour anything in its path but eventually one head will turn and eat the other...

The Clippers are wanting to establish that there is another team in L.A. that can be a contender, and they are doing a good job at it so far.

Their bench is what makes them good.

Kudos to them.

They should have stayed in San Diego. No matter if they win a championship, LA will always be a Laker town.

So this question has been posed. If you are the Clippers and win the division this year, do you hang a banner in Staples? (That would be more hilarious than not having ANY lol) Or how about if they win the Western Conference?

Yeh thats what I meant by my comment, they look like #1 by the way they are playing. Sucks to be honest haha


How did they look when they nearly lost a 30 point lead and got beat by Cleveland?

Like I said, they won't be as impressive come mid season and will make 4th/5th seed at best.

They owned the Thunder all of last year and didn't make a splash in the playoffs.

The nuggets beat the Grizzlies at home. The Pistons destroyed the Celtics.

I wait till the 20th game when teams are finding their grooves to judge.

I don't like the Clips but you sound like a hater here.lol Every team has a few WTF games. I mean...MIA lost to Cleveland last year! We've lost some crazy games in our championship years too! (including our first 4 this season ;) ) But we'll see....

They don't have Chauncey Billups or Grant Hill back yet.

Grant Hill will do nothing for them except be a cheerleader, he's getting older and injured more plus he will get very limited playing time with them when he comes back.

It's awfully early in this season. Clippers are playing very good basketball. I was actually talking to my brother who's a Spurs fan about this yesterday. I told him they aren't the same joke they used to be. Whenever you a guy like Chris Paul you always have a chance. In saying that they're definitely a very good team, but are they a championship caliber team? Way too early to tell.

They are a good team, with a gameplan built around their best players, and what they do well. They have also drafted good talent, and had vets sign who fit their gameplan. They are a model franchise right now in the NBA


Besides Deandre Jordan, Blake Griffin, and getting Bledsoe off a draft day trade I don't think they have drafted that well... they have had a lot of good signings though!

You really can't say that till post All-Star break a lot of teams either struggle into the playoffs or turn on that "switch" and start building momentum for the playoffs

Eric Gordon was the key piece that brought them in cp3, and he was also drafted by them


Clippers are a great team this season and, it could be a great playoffs if the clippers and lakers meet up!
