Out of all the teams listed the Clippers deserves the Championship the most. After going through hell during the Donald Sterling era and surviving it they deserve to win the Championship this season. The Clippers needs this championship more than anyone else.

Somebody please explain how the sixes are favourites over the warriors... Steph >>>>> Embiid Klay >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Simmons Dlo >>>Harris Draymond = Horford Cauley stein is also pretty good. Klay will be back for the playoffs, embiid is never fully healthy in the playoffs and can’t play consistently well.

Nets should be on the list

Just 2 we all know whoever coming out the East is not beating Clips or Lakers in a 7 game series. Whoever wins the WCF’s is taking it that team is going to be too hot and it is going to be Clips vs Lakers come on now. Still going to be an entertaining year though to say the least.

Blazers could too. A team that was in the WCF last year, got a steal in Nassir Little and upgraded at big man with Hassan Whiteside over Enes Kanter

Why is every one forgetting about the Warriors just because LeBron and Davis are on the same team and George and Kawhi? Lmao they got Russel and Dailey-Stein.

2:03 I'm sorry but the only team that challenged the Warriors was the Clippers, not the damn Rockets. We did more talk about how we blew a 31pts lead on our floor thant them Coming back from a 31 pts deficit on the road

Him an idiot: rockets where the one team in the last few years to challenge the warriors. Me: do you forget the clippers who did so good that it made people wonder if they'll get outta 1st round

They now have Conley and Bogdonavic and improved their bench a lot. That's why. Their starting lineup now has two excellent three point shooters with Ingles and Bogdonavic and two good three point shooters in Conley and Mitchell. Favors was a terrible three point shooter and Rubio subpar. Also Rubio couldn't create his own shot, Mitchell had to do everything. Floor will be spaced more this year, easier to drive and finish or dish to open good or great shooters. They're going to be much better this year than last year.

I’d say 8 can win the title. Bucks, 76ers, Lakers, Clippers, Rockets, Warriors, Nuggets, and Blazers.

Honestly I dunno, but I'm still giving all my loyalty to the Celtics. 76ers however post a serious threat defensively to Bucks and Lakers with all those big men.

Lakers and clippers. Everyone else is under them. Giannis needs help, rockets wont gel, philly 2stars got major issues. Gsw has no klay or kd. Nets have no KD. Jazz ain’t ready.

West contenders: lakers clippers and rockets East contenders: bucks, Celtics, pacers, 76ers. Nobody in the east can win the finals tho zero chance so it’s just the rockets lakers clippers in my opinion

2 of the 4 great combos in the west (Steph and Klay, Kawhi and pg, LeBron and AD, and Russ and Harden) will be knocked out in the second round

Kyrie and DeAndre are good as it is. Wait until KD comes back. The Nets are SO overlooked just because media trashes on kyrie and KD.
