ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has offered some interesting thoughts on the Lakers-Clippers rivalry in the coming season:

Per ClutchPoints: “The number one thing I wanna see. I want to see the Lakers versus the Clippers for the Western Conference Finals. That’s what I want to see. I want to see Kawhi Leonard and Paul George up against LeBron and Anthony Davis.

I wanna see Doc Rivers, I wanna see Jeannie Buss and Pelinka, I wanna see Kobe sitting in the stands, I wanna see Magic in the stands, I wanna see Steve Ballmer going crazy courtside.

I wanna see the two teams in L.A. going at each other’s neck tryna take each other out for the right to represent the West in the NBA Finals. To me, that will be the creme de la creme of this season,” Smith said.
