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.

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.
