Well, that's just your opinion man.


Oh really, I had no idea. And the same can be said to you.

Two games in is rather premature to be calling this an historically elite team.

I like to project. I think they've got that upside. Is that allowed?

This Clippers team is interesting. I wouldn't go as far as saying they are as good as the elite Warriors team just yet. But it all depends on the defense. So far, they don't look like an elite defensive team. 

 

But it will be very interesting to see how their team defense comes together over the year. Rivers is an incredible coach and I believe will be able to squeeze every last drop out of this group. 

 

I don't think they'll gun for the Warriors win record but even without pushing on that, there is a very good chance they could be the 1 seed in the West, though. And if necessary down the stretch they'll keep pushing you for the 1 if the standings make sense and we could potentially see a very high total.

I think the number 1 seed out west is unlikely to get 63 wins, nonetheless 73. The West is loaded with good teams, and some of the teams like the ones in LA, but also a couple others, would be smart to not to push down on that gas pedal too hard.

At least they finally have their beautiful dream arena and are no longer in awful Oakland. Lol.

I think they can build again though.

AS I watch this game, it's Curry, with Eric Paschall, Jordan Poole, Omari Spellman, and Glenn Robinson III on the floor..

 

A far cry from KD and Klay.

Here’s the thing about GS...they are extremely young. That means a lot of losses right now.

However, it may also mean a lot of wins later.

In the pre-KD years, that team was very deep. Like any other sport, their depth ended up getting hurt as players started to get into their second contracts and other teams started to pay them a lot.

Now, GS is back to the pre 73 win days. They are a team that, by the end of the year, will probably be a borderline playoff team.

If they don’t make the playoffs, then they get into the lottery and who knows what happens there.

Meanwhile, they have shown, along with teams like SA, that they are great drafting and developing teams.

There will be some growing pains but don’t be surprised to see them back in the finals within a few years because of this.

Anthony Davis with a huge game for LA last night. 

 

Dallas with an interesting win in Denver....  interesting not just because they got the road W, but bc their unicorns didn't have huge games.

Yea, Justin Jackson only had 10.

 

That's obviously who you're referring to.
