    In a surprising move, the Los Angeles Clippers signed Kawhi Leonard and traded for Paul George, giving them the best wing duo we've seen since Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. Do they have enough to beat everyone else for a title next year? Coach Nick dove into the footage to find out.

    I cant imagine how good the Clippers will be when having MVP runner up Paul George back. Plus the best bench in the league.

                    Lakers will be waiting for slashers with a Twin Shot-blocking Frontcourt. 😀😀
                    Getting past the 1st Wall of Defense is not the end of the possession thanks to shot-blocking Centers:
                    Dwight Howard
                    JaVale McGee

                      Clippers barely used Center, Ivica Zubac in the NBA Playoffs. 😀😀😀
                      Dwight Howard & JaVale McGee rotation as Centers too much for Zubac & Harrell.
                      Lakers have the advantage with INTERIOR DEFENSE.
                      Clippers too little.

                        Clippers look like they got the better big men by far. Patterson, Zubac, Green, Harkless, Harrell, they dominated LAs bigs, too versatile, to good shooting

                      Big question marks at point guard and center where Zubac and Beverly don’t make the top 20 of starters at their position in the NBA. The lack of playmaking and continuity with George out for the first couple months and missing training camp will present challenges.
