12. Los Angeles Clippers
I wrote this last week but do not sleep on the Los Angeles Clippers. Losing Chris Paul didn’t mean that this team was hitting the reset button. They retooled with an interesting blend of talent that might gel better together then their previous team.
The problem is that Blake Griffin is still in a walking boot right now and most likely won’t play until December so this team is pretty much punting the first 7 weeks of the season and I wouldn’t be shocked if the Golden State Warriors went undefeated in that stretch.
On paper this team is interesting. On the court, eh probably not.
