Yeah but the warriors didnt have KD then. This clippers team arent like the 60 win raptors or hawks (built for the regular season). This team is built for the post season. No one can stop the clippers.

On paper

This your depleted teams narrative grin Not buying.
I think The Raptors without Kawhi would have stood a chance against GS without KD (and Klay for 1 and a half games)

TalonVonner:


Just admit it. The clippers with a healthy kawhi and Paul George are one of the greatest teams ever assembled. The Lakers will be in trouble. I'm a Lakers fan, I absolutely believe this.
Let's not get ahead of ourselves here. We have to see them do it in the playoffs before making any conclusions. After all, Kawhi and PG are just one man each, they won't make their team play 7 against 5. On paper they are great, but when it comes to the court, you'll see where determination takes effect.

The only reason I'm quite confident about the Lakers is because of the LeBron factor, we know he doesn't mess around when it's time. Plus the Warriors ain't the Warriors anymore and KD might not make the playoffs.

Paul George is arguably the second best two way player in the league after guess who? Kawhi Leonard. In the right setting PG is a beast in the playoffs as he was in Indiana. Don't mess with playoff P.
Lol. There's a playoff P now? cheesy
Re: The NBA Begins by steady986(m): 3:15pm On Nov 09, 2019
TalonVonner:


Best two way player in the league, Kawhi.

Second best two way player in the league, PG.

Best sixth man in the league, Lou.

Second best sixth man in the league, Harrell.

Best defensive PG in the league, Pat.

Hall of fame coach, Doc.

This team is on paper as great as some of these teams, they just need the accomplishments to prove it. On paper no other team in the NBA can come close.
I'm glad you mentioned it twice

I know you're hyping this Clippers team so in case they win the Lakers, you'd say "I told you". But don't worry, we'll beat them 4-2 in the conference semis.

Laker fans are not going to let it slide as long as Kawhi and New Balance continue to make snide remarks like “it’s Kawhi’s town now” blaziblah, and who says they’re not happy? They are just letting the Chokers know what time it is and it’s personal now.

Check the NBA hate map, the Chokers are the only team hated in their own home state.
If una like don't let it slide. It just means your fans are salty and bitter about the butt whooping Kawhi handed LeNomad when they met.

And for now it is Kawhi's town till you lot do something about it on the court. If I recall correctly when they met LeNomad and Anthony Davis were held to 2 pts in the 4th so we know who the real chokers are.

Of course that's because majority of the fans are angry Lakers fans who have suddenly found their voices again

No need to be salty. No shame in admitting this great clippers team is better than this lakers team. Its not even close.

Would they have beaten the Sixers and Bucks too? I don't think so.

Everyone agreed last season that Ujiri's DeRozan for Kawhi trade was the key masterpiece that won Raptors the championship.

It doesn't mean they weren't a good team before him or that he did it alone. It's just that they were not good enough and wouldn't have gone that far without him.

Let's not play convenient revisionism because we don't like a player or because time has passed and people have forgotten.

That moment was sweet, but I don't think PG could do any better in that moment. Just some great balling from Lillard in that series.
xwolverine:



PG is good but he’s not all that, he’s hella moist. Give me Iggy any day and the Lakers will match up. And Dame still dropped the half court buzzer beater on his ass last season.
Re: The NBA Begins by A40(m): 6:54pm On Nov 09, 2019
No mind them. Ujiri that traded DeRozan and a pick without guarantee of Kawhi staying did not know he had a good team abi
Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 6:57pm On Nov 09, 2019
The tag ' one of the greatest teams ever assembled' you have placed on the Clippers exists only in your mind. What exactly do you mean by that. Top 20,30, 40? grin. That's not a fact any practical person will admit at least at this moment. Come playoff time, we will see if that narrative is even remotely valid.

Nonsense. The miami heat were a great team the moment they were assembled. So are the clippers. You cant discredit the sort of talent that they've put together. You are just jealous cause the clippers have knocked the GSW off their perch.

Re: The NBA Begins by benji93: 7:49pm On Nov 09, 2019
Are you alright? Knocked GSW off their perch? This team is still yet to win a play off series. Do you even understand some of these phrases you throw around. No one here is discrediting the talent depth of this team, the tag you used is just an exaggeration.

Clippers beat Lakers not Kawhi and Lakers lose not Lebron, you want to tell me with a straight face that you’ve always been a Clippers fan or just a Lebron hater? 16 titles vs nada doesn’t make you a choker, Clippers had Blake, CP3 and Deandre but won fûck all with them, perennial chokers. Now you can hop off Kawhi’s dïck

LOL The clippers are clearly the best team in the league, getting all the attention and fear GS used to get. Stop hating.
