Lack of dynamic wing players/softness will be their downfall imo.

Don't underestimate the loss of Billups. He was the lockerroom glue guy last year . They will miss him a lot.

Nah defense would be if they lose.

Paul should be getting Clippers to the conference finals.. He now has the roster and coach to do it. No more excuses.

To me he is the 3rd best player in the league. He needs to prove why.

Are the main 3 contenders rights now to win the west for me. Houston we need to see them how they play.

How about the Warriors?

They might fail come playoffs so will a lot of other good teams but barring injury I think they might succeed as in wcf, hopefully they don't get matched up against griz again just a frontcourt arm wrestle clipps can't win

They are certainly in the mix along with Rockets and Grizzlies. Just think spurs, Thunder, Clippers are a tier above right now. Bogut health could change things.

West is extremely stacked as usual, but this year there's no clear cut favorite. So I wouldn't be surprised if the LAC got bumped in the second round or won the West.

Lockerroom not on the court. Reports out of Clipperland last season said if it wasn't for Billups that team would have blown up because of the friction between CP3 and the other players

Now they have Doc instead. Players, including CP3, will respect him a lot more than they did VDN.

That was the issue. Nobody respected vinny which was the main reason for the rumoured chemistry problems

what a weird thread title. Might actually? They are much more likely to fail than not (win a championship). Its highly unlikely they come out of the west, let alone win the title. I put their championship hopes at well under 10%
