Clippers are honestly overrated as hell. Clippersfan and others need to STFU when putting them in the Heat, Thunder and Lakers class. They're in tier 2.

Liking a team and predicting a lot of wins are not related. They shouldnt be at least.

Nobody's has played yet, so everything is on paper.

No reason not to think the Clippers can be on a top level.

This isn't the eastern conference where 45 wins is a 3 seed.

He's also flat out saying this team will regress compared to last year... which doesn't make sense. Bledsoe, Griffin and DJ look much improved and the team got a lot deeper. Not to mention Chauncey is almost healthy.

You're such a emotional dramatic little girl. I feel slighted as a Clippers fan, but we've still got a lot to prove. 1 year isn't enough to totally change perception or earn respect or benefit of the doubt. I look forward to proving the doubters wrong. Instead of getting butt hurt, take on the challenge and rejoice when they'll have to eat their own words.

But there is also no reason TO think they will be on that level.

As far as I know, it's:

Miami

Lakers, OKC


Clippers, Spurs, Celtics, Pacers, Grizzlies

Nuggets, 76ers, Knicks, Nets

Nobody including me is saying they are first tier. I agree that until proven otherwise second tier. 45 wins max though means no playoffs or 8 seed at best. Do you agree with that?

Not at all. I think Clippers at worst are the 6th seed behind the Thunder, Lakers, Spurs, Grizzlies and then Nuggets. But I think they'll get around the 3rd/4th seed.

Exactly what I think. Which likely means 52-55 wins, which is way more than his prediction. Basically he's saying no playoffs or 8 seed at best which is absurd so why am I just being a butthurt homer guys?

Dramatic little girl. No reason to bitch and moan about a remark from one sports writer. I'm more annoyed that he's trying to stir up shit with the players then his prediction on the record.

If Bledsoe doesn't play beside Paul he's going to average 12 minutes in the regular season and 5 in the playoffs.
