Default The Clippers are going to the 2013 NBA Finals

So enough threads about Lebron vs MJ, and Dwightmare. I can't believe there aren't a bunch of Clipper/Billups threads after the past week.

The Clippers put together a great week of bball this week after the return of Chris Paul and Billups.

It's only been a week, but Billups has shown he will be able to do a lot more than most people expected. I for one thought his career was over after last year's injury. It clearly isn't.




The deepest team in the league just got even deeper. It will be great watching them get to the Finals while all the Durant slurpers sit there shocked.

Current Dwyane Wade is not better than current Chris Paul.

Bosh vs. Griffin is very debatable.

LeBron is great, but he's not god, so no he's not better than 10+ other players combined.
Go watch the Rams, let the big boys deal with teams that are contending.

6-1 with Billups in the lineup this year. I knew all season long that he would have an impact. He's not always going to score 20 back to back on great efficiency but it's more addition by subtraction than anything. More Billups= no Willie Green. Green is okay as a 5 minute a game 3rd SG who can hit the 3 but he hurt us badly as a starter.

With the starting 5 of Paul, Billups, Butler, Griffin, DJ the Clippers team has won 80+ percent of their games the last two years and that lineup is the most explosive in the NBA IMO. Last year remember that sequence where they hit 4 threes in just a minute?

I'm very much looking forward to the playoffs so haters can be exposed as fools. My only concern is if we can remain intact and healthy. CP3, Billups, Griffin, DJ and Crawford need to be healthy the rest of the way for them to be playing in June.

I'd say it's more like....

Lebron>>>>>>>>everybody on the Clippers individually.
Cp3>Wade
Griffin>Bosh

Heat have two of the top three players in H2H the Clippers have more depth.

Wade is the best Finals performer in NBA history.

NBA Finals Dwyane Wade >> any version of Paul past, present of future.

Bosh can shoot, Griffin can't... and if you expect to beat the heat you better be loaded with great shooters. Miami's has the best pick and roll defense in the league and would tear apart the Clips at their game.

There isn't a GM alive who would take the remaining Clipper players over Lebron on their team right now, if they had the choice.

* you can talk depth all you want, unless your new to watching playoff basketball. Benches greatly shorten in the playoffs. Benches don't matter much. Tons of rest between games when the postseason rolls around. Stars see more minutes.

Hank what's up with the multiple personalities think? Sometimes you're reasonable, other times you flip out on hardcore troll mode when anybody mentions the Heat and you're being very illogical here. Yes I agree 7 years ago in the finals Wade>>>>>any version of CP3. Doesn't mean RIGHT NOW CP3 isn't a better player because he definitely is.

The Clippers are loaded with great shooters when healthy which is why they have been demolishing teams with the 3 the last few games. Griffin definitely doesn't shoot as well as Bosh but if you've watched him this year you'd know his shot is at least decent. Not to mention Bosh can't dominant games in the post like Griffin, rebound like Griffin or create for teammates like Griffin.

I think the Clippers as a team can beat Miami and have proven that the last 3 years. I understand most fans have a short, biased memory but early in the season the Clippers had zero trouble beating the Heat in LA. A lot of it is going to come down to HCA because both teams are nearly unbeatable at home the last couple years.

As of right now both teams have the same record or Miami is a half game better. If they met in the finals I think the team with home court wins. I think the Clippers size and depth are massive issues for Miami. Miami's going to give anybody problems with Lebron but Wade and Bosh haven't done too much against us in recent years and our bench outplays yours in a series.
