As the new NBA season approaches, more and more people are talking about the Los Angeles Clippers.
There is a feeling among many fans that the Clippers might really have what it takes this year.
They could not only make a strong playoff run, people claim, but they could actually arrive at the NBA Finals.
If that happens, it’ll be the final fulfillment of a promise made to fans years ago.
And it’ll all be because of the team’s daring duo.
NBA icon Derek Fisher thinks this pair could really be the key to something incredible.
Derek Fisher on Kawhi and PG:
"The combination of those two guys – when you think about what the… Celtics were able to do with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as that kind of duo, Kawhi and Paul George are the grown man version of those two guys.”

“The combination of those two guys – when you think about what the…Celtics were able to do with Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as that kind of duo, Kawhi and Paul George are the grown man version of those two guys,” Fisher said.
Comparing Leonard and George to Tatum and Brown, one of the most exciting combinations in the league, is quite the compliment.
But will the Clippers actually outdo the Celtics this season?
For years now, fans of the Clippers have been waiting – and waiting and waiting – for their team to finally achieve postseason success.
When Leonard and George came to town, there was hope that things would finally fall into place.
But bad luck has reared its ugly head repeatedly, resulting in bad injuries and many missed games between Leonard and George.
Now that both men are back and healthy, chances have never been better for the Clippers.
Leonard and George could be as good as Tatum and Brown – but they could also be even better.
