The Los Angeles Clippers were touted by many as one of the top favorites to win it all this season. The additions of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George were supposed bring them their first championship.
Contrary to all the expectations, that saw the Clippers making it to at least the Western Conference Finals, they were knocked out by the Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals.
