For the second straight season, the Los Angeles Clippers are among a few teams that are considered to be real title contenders in the NBA.
After last year’s failure in the playoffs when the Clippers blew a 3-1 lead against the Nuggets in the second round, the team replaced Doc Rivers with his former assistant Tyronn Lue and added some pieces, like Nicolas Batum and Serge Ibaka, to have another go at winning a championship.
Despite the above, Jason McIntyre of Fox Sports sees no evidence of the Clippers having what it takes to seriously contend for the title. He ripped the team by pointing out their flaws as seen by him.
“There is nothing, zero, that shows this Clippers team can contend late in games,” McIntyre said on UNDISPUTED. “There are contestants on The Bachelor that have a better chance at the ring than the LA Clippers. This team is criminally overrated and so fraudulent.”
With nearly half of the regular season games played, the Clippers find themselves in the second place in the Western Conference with 22 wins and 10 losses. They share the record with the Laker, but have the upper hand due to winning their meeting early in the season.
