Chris Paul opened up about what went wrong with the Los Angeles Clippers during the Lob City era.

Paul, who was one of the superstars in the team, believes the Clippers were lacking luck and that’s why they could not fight for the championship.

“[Clippers head coach Doc Rivers] used to always say in order to win a championship, you gotta be lucky. We never were lucky. I don’t think the Donald Sterling thing had anything to do with our shortcomings as a team.

It was definitely a bump in the road, something unexpected, but that’s life,” Paul said while speaking on the Quibi documentary Blackballed, via Farbod Esnaashari of SI.
