The Los Angeles Clippers come into this season with hopes of winning their first NBA championship. The city has been buzzing after the front office landed Superstar Kawhi Leonard in free agency and traded for Paul Geroge on the same day.
The Lakers were favored to land Leonard but after he joined the Clippers, he made them instant favorites to win it all this year. Los Angeles has always been a Lakers town and rightfully so with 16 championships hanging in the rafters at Staples Center. However, even with LeBron on the Lakers, the Clippers have been the more successful team over the last couple of seasons.
NBA experts have the Clippers as the team to beat in the league.. With Lou Williams, Patrick Beverly and Montrezl Harrell, the Clippers will have one of the best defensive teams in the league. They also managed to add Tyronn Lue to the staff, another person that the Lakers wanted on their team but decided to pass on them.
Is this the turning point in Los Angeles where it becomes a Clipper town? Clipper Darrel has been a super fan for a long time and has become more noticeable as of late. The Clipper movement has been slowly gaining some steam and has won over the newer generation.
Only time will tell if this can ever be a Clipper town but until then, Clipper fans enjoy the ride
