The Los Angeles Clippers got off to a great start against the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, and they were my pick to win the series. Doc Rivers' squad has quite a lot of emotional momentum after their tough series with the Golden State Warriors. This makes me think Chris Paul and company could send Kevin Durant on vacation a bit earlier than he probably expected. Here are the rumors, good and bad, surrounding the Clippers at the moment.
I wanted to get the cloud out of the way first. Sterling is probably going to sue the NBA, but here is hoping that it gets tossed out of court quite quickly. Something tells me that is not going to happen though, and things might end up getting a bit messy this summer.
Paul is not going to shoot the way he did from downtown in game 1 again in this series, but he could still completely own Russell Westbrook over the next 10 days. Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me.
Doc Rivers proved over the last couple weeks that he is a consummate leader, and there could be a future for him in politics if he ever decides that the NBA coaching grind is a bit too much. It will be interesting to see if Rivers is still with the team next season.
Charles Barkley brought this up the other day, and I agree. Honestly, I am surprised this has not gotten more attention, but it is probably because the mistress is the one who came out with the tapes.
By major, I mean Chris Paul, Blake Griffin, or DeAndre Jordan. I would be shocked if any of those three got moved, because they seem to keep building chemistry in a way that might just put them on a crash course with an NBA championship in the next year or two.
