The Los Angeles Clippers, by far, have had one of the most productive offseasons in the NBA as they’ve brought in plenty of shooters, productive veterans, and re-signed superstar Chris Paul. Now that the offseason work is done, another question comes to mind: where can the Clippers finish? This a fairly tough question to answer, and here’s why.
Other teams like the Memphis Grizzlies and the Golden State Warriors are fresh off of deep postseason runs and are obviously looking to do better this year. The Warriors have brought in even more reinforcements such as Andre Iguodala. The Clippers, however, have done just as well. Since we don’t know how these players are going to mesh, there’s no telling whether the Clippers are going to finish 2nd, or 7th. There’s plenty of competition this year in the Western Conference.
Blake Griffin and CP3 are two of the best players in the league, forming one of the best combinations. However they could considerably drop in the standings if they lose the Pacific Division. The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t going to be a problem, but the Warriors might be.
On paper, however, the Clippers have a better roster, and are likely to do better because they’re gaining more and more experience. After acquiring CP3, the Clippers found greatness and a flow. Now that experience is a factor, especially with the acquisitions that they’ve made, they’re going to be able to contend this year.
