Yes. Just forget about the fact that this is the Clippers franchise we're talking about here, they have arguably (Not even arguable in my eyes) the deepest roster in the NBA WITH a superstar player.

Second round exit most likely. I don't see them getting their chemistry together.

Elite point guards have the ability to quickly remedy chemistry issues, + many of their current players have been playing with one another for a while. Watching the game tonight?

That is pretty true. Its just hard for me to see them reaching the finals in a stacked western conference

I know, but it just makes so much sense to me. You heard it here first though. Clippers will be in the NBA Finals.

I've been able to watch some of it. Clips look good. But for me, the Clips need to stay healthy and get along well together. Best case scenario is that everything clicks they stay healthy and then I can see them contending. Worst case is that they are unhealthy, Odom is unable to work himself back into basketball condition, Crawford gets into a huge slump and they lose in the first round.

Second round is most likely but the Clips could go a round of two further. Their offensive game and depth is amazing. However, they are not defensively sound enough to actually win a title. Jordan blocks a ton of shots but he's not that great of a rim protector and bites for a lot of fakes. I do think Paul/Bledsoe/Butler/Odom/Jordan can be a great defensive lineup though and Griffin has shown marked improvements on that end. Still far from elite there though.

True, health is the biggest concern for them. Blake Griffin's knee issues can pop up at any moment and Chris Paul has suffered his share of injuries as well. Odom looks terrible right now (Air-balled a three just recently) but if he ever returns to his pre trade form that bench would be unreal. Crawford is what they were missing last season, someone other than Chris Paul that can create their own shot.

Yeah. Griffin's health and Paul's are a major concern for this team's future. Odom needs to stay in shape and gets his head together basketball wise.

I see them in the WCF. Who knows, though. Too early to tell. They usually slump later in the season, too.

Maybe second round or WCF. I dont know, i dont either seeing them getting their chemistry together. They always end up in useless fights.

This is my prediction with the Clippers: As a team the Clippers have one of the deepest benches in the NBA. They still have Billups and Grant Hill who both are still injured. That is gonna be a big problem for Vinny Del Negro. When they get back how will the rotation look like? He acquired to many good sixth men and role players. Vinny will have a tough time to decide who is gonna play and that will create bad chemistry in the team. Some players are gonna be jealous and some just mad. They have a great team but they will screw it up somehow and the problem is how Vinny Del Negro will set up the team when everybody is healthy.

I believe it's going to be between the Lakers and the Thunder for the WCF. The Lakers got to get it together though, pronto!
