The Los Angeles Clippers have become a true force in the West over the last few years.
Yet, despite all the big names they have and the number of playoff appearances they’ve claimed, they are still not where they want to be.
And even though they are lapping their LA rivals, the Lakers, fans are quick to point out they haven’t truly overtaken them where it counts.

A meme floating around the web painfully sums up the difference between the Clippers and the Lakers: while Paul George has posted photos of himself kissing his brand new Playstation 5, Anthony Davis has images of him kissing the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
The fact that the Clippers have never claimed the biggest honor in basketball is a sore subject for fans but they might get the last laugh if their team finally delivers in the upcoming season.
Showdown In LA
The Clippers are all set to have an explosive, important season.
Additionally, the acquisition of John Wall only makes the team stronger.
So they really could go far in the playoffs and even make the Finals.
But even if they don’t, they definitely have better odds than the Lakers, who are still facing a lot of chemistry problems within their team.
The Clippers want to win it all, they want their first championship victory.
It might be too soon for that but their roster hasn’t been this impressive in a very long time.
However, if things don’t work out well this year and the Clippers once again fall short, don’t be shocked if the team is changed in a big way.
