Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins believes that the Clippers have the best team in the league and considers them as the favorites to win a championship in 2023.

“Oh, it’s the Clippers,” Perkins replied on ESPN’s NBA Today when asked which team – the Lakers or the Clippers – had a better offseason. “I think the Clippers had the best offseason over any team in the NBA. When you talk about the wing position, the most important position. I already dove into that.

“But I’m looking at the Clippers and I’m looking at them, I have them as my favorite to win it all. When you think about the coaching along and Tyronn Lue, LeBron James since Tyronn Lue has been the head coach of the Clippers, LeBron James haven’t beat him one time, so that says a lot.

“Also you have a healthy Kawhi Leonard coming back. We saw how Paul George finished the season. The Clippers right now they are really really dangerous. They are really deep and I think they have the best team in the NBA when they start this season.”
