      @tribalypredisposed did u even watch the clippers vs the jazz??? They’re not gonna play a center when it matters most. U don’t know what ur talking and neither does he. Ur agreeing with him because both of y’all are casuals. The clippers have the best team on paper. And just like in 2021 the only thing that can hold them back is their health. They’re a deep team with few weakness.

      @Jack lol, I am the casual but you are the one saying that the Clippers have the best team “on paper?” Here are how the players will rank between the two teams next year: 1) Curry, 2) Kawhi, 3) Wiggins, 4) Paul Gorge, 5) Poole, 6) Draymond, 7) Klay, 8) Kuminga, 9) GPII, 10) Looney, 11) Wiseman, 12) Moody, and then the rest of the Clippers players. Get a clue, casual.

    • A menace.

      June 21, 2022 at 10:43 am

      I’m a warrior fan, but Kawhi was putting the clamps on Luka at the end of the series in 2021

    • A menace.

      June 21, 2022 at 10:43 am

      @tribalypredisposed Wiggins over Paul George?

    • A menace.

      June 21, 2022 at 10:44 am

      @tribalypredisposed Poole and Draymond over Klay?

    Nets vs. Warriors in the Finals next year to settle “bus rider” debate.

    • tribalypredisposed

      June 20, 2022 at 6:01 pm

      Lol. There is no debate. Curry and Klay and Dray have won it all with Harrison Barnes or KD or Wiggins playing that position, and KD will never be back to the Finals. KD is a really good player, but he was not as good a fit for the Warriors system as Wiggins is, and Curry had to sacrifice more and worry about taking care of him while Wiggins is there to do whatever the team needs him to do to win.

    • garylp3

      @tribalypredisposed Would make for good TV. Currently Vegas has Warriors #1 and Nets #2 for next year championship odds.

    Perk needs to be put on a leave for awhile. He takes never have back up.

    Leonard was a beast in SA and Toronto . Too bad he’s always injured .

      It’s like watching MJ play

    June 20, 2022 at 6:17 pm

    Idk the clippers had trouble with the jazz. I don’t believe it Kendrick.
    Memphis is the next team on the rise and gave the warriors the toughest match up thru out the play offs

    • tornatic1983

      June 20, 2022 at 6:24 pm

      Lol the Clippers beat the Jazz without Kawhi for half the series.

    • Jack

      June 20, 2022 at 11:09 pm

      Did u even watch the playoffs? 😂 go check the box score of game 3 and game 4. Once the clippers started clicking it was over.

    I’m a Clippers fan I’ve been saying this team we have fully heathy will win it all. But i don’t want folks saying we gone win i want folks to think we not gone do nothing !

      Clippers are best flying under the radar.

    • Dungsta

      June 21, 2022 at 1:08 pm

      Too bad kawhi and PG quit on the team tho

    • Brian Vieane

      June 22, 2022 at 3:38 pm

      Clippers counter the warriors roster construction wise.

    • Sam Freeman

      June 23, 2022 at 7:39 am

      @Dungsta ur right, how dare they not play through serious injuries

    Clippers are not a threat to A healthy GSW

    • shaft9000

      June 20, 2022 at 7:14 pm

      That’s odd, considering that the last time they met in the playoffs the Dubs lost twice to the Clippers at home in Oracle…with healthy KD and Klay.

    • Chris Gomez

      June 20, 2022 at 8:09 pm

      @shaft9000 Also with 0 stars. Lou Williams was arguably the best player on that roster and he was coming off the bench

    • Unknown Raider Guy

      June 20, 2022 at 9:49 pm

      @shaft9000 Did they eliminate them ? Nope
      By the way when was the last time Kawhi eliminated a Healthy GSW? Wait I forgot Kawhi and the Clippers couldn’t even get through the Thunder.

    Big Perk with another blindfolded shot in the dark, hoping to be right at some point, somehow. Clippers are not built to win in the modern small ball era, so they will not win. This year, three of the four teams in the conference finals had a mobile starting center standing six foot nine. The fourth, Dallas, learned their lesson and just traded for a six foot nine mobile center. Clippers have a big seven foot starting center, and another at backup. No. Clippers all along the roster are trying to win with traditional sized players for the given positions, and that is not how the game works anymore.

    • Jordan Johnson

      June 20, 2022 at 10:11 pm

      Nah. Nah to blindfolded. Not blindfolded. /

    • Al mac

      June 21, 2022 at 2:31 am

      The Lakers and Bucks won the two previous championships with big centers so I think it is too early to say it can’t be done. Hartenstein is pretty mobile for a 7 footer.

  10. Ezequiel Santillan

    June 20, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Please can we just stop talking of something that could have been but never was? The Grizzlies and the Suns are way more legit threats than the Clippers.

    • Most Toxic

      June 20, 2022 at 11:12 pm

      Tbh no. The Clippers have a team of really good versatile players that can defend 1-5. Besides that, they have a lot of depth. Only players in their team that aren’t really 2-way players are Reggie Jackson and Luke Kennard

  11. Dee Hawk

    June 20, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    That man wasn’t 100% when he won with Toronto

  12. Jason Seay

    June 20, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    SAS stop ✋🏿 with the kawhi slander

  13. Jordan Johnson

    June 20, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    Nah. Not most times. Not mos times. Not mos time. /

    Clippers are trash. Best team in LA but they WILL NOT do anything meaningful after game 82.

    • Al mac

      June 21, 2022 at 2:41 am

      They are good enough but they like the Nets seem cursed. Something bad always seems to happen to them. Very deep squad but lacks outright quality at PG and center.

  15. Rhys Arrieta

    June 21, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Would be crazy if the Bucks won the chip, then Kawhi stopped a third 3peat

    • Chandler Whalen

      June 21, 2022 at 2:37 am

      Huh

    • Noobmaster69

      June 21, 2022 at 7:10 am

      Lmao what? Spurs THE TEAM the reason why 3peat of Heat was stopped, and 2019 Warriors were injured when he beat them, Kawhi was a bus rider in Spurs 2014 ring clown, only reason he got FMVP that year beacause of clown media. 🤓🤡

  16. Julian Kok

    June 21, 2022 at 1:09 am

    I dun trust the healths of clippers.

  17. Chromë

    June 21, 2022 at 1:42 am

    Maybe if they will not get injured again, kawhi and Paul.

  18. Chandler Whalen

    June 21, 2022 at 2:36 am

    Enough talk on the clippers. Kawhi and PG are old, injured, and washed up. I said this before last season as well. They ain’t making past the first round of playoffs, if they even make it.

    • wirth6

      June 21, 2022 at 4:53 am

      Old? They are 31 and 32, which is younger or equally young as the core of the Golden State that just won the chip. And essentially the same age as Jordan before the second three-peat.

    • Chandler Whalen

      June 21, 2022 at 11:51 am

      @wirth6 yah but they’ve both had soooo many bad injuries. They’re beat down

    • Dungsta

      June 21, 2022 at 1:11 pm

      They are in their prime numb nuts

  19. Five Four

    June 21, 2022 at 2:47 am

    Clippers biggest threat kawhi pg Reggie Jackson Norman Powell luke kennard and tye lue I say warriors In 7 warriors beating the bucks in the finals steph 5 rings

  20. TheAdventangel

    June 21, 2022 at 11:11 pm

    Didn’t we hype up the clippers and they blew a 3-1 lead to the nuggets?!

  21. Nathan 🎈

    June 22, 2022 at 2:49 am

    Predictions for next regular season provided everyone’s healthy in the West:
    1. Memphis
    2. Golden State
    3. Denver
    4. LA Clippers
    5. Phoenix
    6. Dallas
    7. New Orleans
    8. LA Lakers
    9. Minnesota
    10. Portland
    11. Utah
    12. San Antonio
    13. Oklahoma City
    14. Sacramento
    15. Houston

    Just because I have Memphis at 1 doesn’t mean they make the Finals

    Memphis Golden State WCF 2023 will be amazing

  22. Frankie Clayton

    June 22, 2022 at 11:21 am

    Warriors will be 3,4,5 steps ahead and prepare for them in doubting the warriors again. Don’t think the warriors are not being 3,4,5 ahead ready for him like in chess

  23. Frankie Clayton

    June 22, 2022 at 11:24 am

    The Warriors will be ready for the Clippers in every possible way and they know what he presents and breathes so they will make every effort and I know he is missing and I know where he’s planning on doing but I know little boy is going to be prepared for him

  24. Frankie Clayton

    June 22, 2022 at 11:26 am

    Is like a storm you have to prepare in different situations is like a famine you have to be prepared for the different situations is like a crisis in the market you have to be prepared for different situations is like when you lose your home you have to be prepared for this different situation and it’s the same way when people doubt you the Warriors will be prepared for different situation is just like in the game of chess the Warriors will be prepared for different situations it’s just like when people doubted them and they were hurt and they counted amount you have to be prepared for certain situations the Warriors must have visions to see things that men can’t see

  25. Frankie Clayton

    June 22, 2022 at 11:28 am

    Warriors it’s just like when you have a blackout you must be prepared to have flashlight battery a backup generator you must be able to know the Sounds in the darkness you must be able to know vibrations you must be able to sense things before it happens
