Still scared of the Clippers more, simply because they have so damn much to throw at Lebron, and their depth may just overwhelm us.

That's real talk. No use glossing over it. The sail boat boys are a real threat and they're loaded.

I think it's going to be a Lakers vs Clipper Western Conference Finals. Anyone in need PM me a PO BOX and I'll send you a Prozac script.

Vogel needs to stop DNP'ing Waiters immediately. This guy could be our best guard outside of Caruso and he is sitting the pine?

JR Smith is done, sit his ass down and play Waiters.

This is worrying because once Rondo comes back you know Vogel will never play him.

We will need this guy to put pressure on opposing guards.

I've never been given a satisfactory answer to why we traded Professional Scorer Lou Williams. He comes off the bench with instant offense. We gave two solid players, Lou Williams and Ivica Zubac to the Clippers. They didn't need Mayflower. They moved down the hall.

The person who traded away Lou and Zubac had been fired or had resigned so there's your answer.

Clips suck. Can't even get by Dallas. Now Dallas might be the team to beat.

I am not trying to skip over this series but wouldn't it be funny if the matchup the Clippers wanted for the Lakers is easier than the Clippers matchup?

Anywho, if we get an aggressive AD we win, someone just needs to tick him off before tip from now on.

Not so sure the Blazers are the easier team at all. The Lakers have been playing far and away the best defense in the bubble and making Portland's life miserable especially Dame. It might not be as sexy as scoring 140 points but it's even more draining and frustrating for the opposition which is showing more and more every game.

The Clippers on the other hand outside of Kawhi have been very mediocre defensively the entire series. Kind of like when they left Lou in all that time and he was on fire but he's also a complete defensive liability and the Mavs just scored right back nearly every possession in that stretch.

TBH the Clippers defense has been fake touted this entire bubble by the media about as bad as when people keep calling Doc one of the top few coaches in the NBA.

The Blazers woke the Lakers up. Lakers are showing they're the better team. They beat Portland even when Dame Dolla and CJ McCollum were on their games. I hope Portland has gotten their only win. 🤞🏾

The Clippers have their hands full with Dallas. Doncic hit a game winning 3 on them at the buzzer. They beat the Clippers without Kristaps Porzingis. If he comes back playing the way he has been they have a chance to beat the sail boat boys. Paul George went MIA. Having said all that I think the Clippers win the series.

Should have kept Sweet Lou. He may not play D but his shooting would have been enough to even that out. Got 36 points off the bench. JR, KCP and Green aren't getting it done. Zubac is playing good also.
