Will Cain is adamant that Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers run Los Angeles over the Lakers because Kawhi chose to join the Clippers in free agency instead of forming a superteam with LeBron James and Anthony Davis.

Plz they won’t be able to contain Anthony Davis at all? Zubac to slow and AD to athletic n long for harrell kawhi to small to guard so is George and you know bron will find em and attract the defense driving it I can Visualize a deadly pick n roll that’s gonna be hard to stop, buckets all day for davis... this year if healthy lakers almost guarantee tittle, they have shooters around through the roster we got boggie of the bench spreading the floor fully rested n ready to go ppl sleeping on em, if healthy this team has all the recipes to win it all if you disagree you’re truly a hater IF HEALTHY

Baloney. L.A. is a Laker town. Clippers and Kawhi are the B team. No one cares if the win. They have very little Support. Clippers are going nowhere this year. They are overrated.

Kawhi finally got playoff hype and then it died down. He’s got a case for the best in the game. I don’t know if he is, but he might be. He and PG are the best two way players in the game. Not to mention PG ain’t no scrub. MVP candidate right there. They will have a jaw dropping offense and defense

Even if the Clippers win the chip, Lakers will always run LA, Will doesn't know squat, he went to school at Pepperdine and he think he knows LA? Ryan Hollins may be a lot of things but he's from LA (Pasadena/UCLA) and he's right about who OWNS LA.

Kawhi does -- King in the North is going from Jon Snow to full on Daenys Targaryen! And he just went full _scorched earth_ on Los Angel's Landing -- he ain't sharing the crown with another 'king' ! Now he got a dragon, too -- he gonna be rebuilding the city as his Kawhidom. lol Clippers the real LA team now haha.... top 3 Lakers are Midwest boys _'Gone Hollywood'_ -- whereas Clippers the real ones LA team with hometown LA boys I think the *San Diego / Clippers* angle cannot be underappreciated.... Kawhi live in San Diego, went to university in San Diego, and grew up in east LA but wasn't a Lakers fan but was stuck in the Lakers' shadow. now he join the LA / ex-San Diego Clippers -- and George who is another LA hometown boy who was a Clippers fan and played vs Kawhi in SoCal college bball -- and they got a chance to take the Clippers out of the Lakers' shadow so.... two teams play in Staples now: the *Midwest Lakers* and the *Los Angeles Clippers* hehehe (so at least their name finally makes sense XD)

Saying it doesn't make it true. Lakers run LA. Even when Chris Paul, Blake & DeAndre played it was STILL a Laker town.

Get the heck out of here You're not from NY will Cain! The nets will never overtake the Knicks! Number 1) Knicks haven't been good in 14 out of the last 19 yrs. And Yes, Fans are ticked off and tired , depressed, Of all this Da*n losing. But, more than half of (Real Knicks Fans) would never jump ship. I don't care if they only got two titles from the 70s!. This is New York and just like LA..We won't jump ship just because two gutless sensitive players Named Kyrie & KD..decided to diss the Knicks to join The Nets because the media fooled them into thinking they'll have it easier over there. NY is NY and no matter where you hide if you lose you're gonna hear it!

LaC ain't gonna win next year. Houston gonna be the best team in the West. PG13 didn't help Russ/okc much...improved only 1 gm. Russ made him getting the best stats season of his career. Fuck LA teams

Lakers are to basketball what the Cowboys are to football and the Yankees are to baseball. No matter how their season goes, they are still the team everyone wants to talk about and the team that runs the league. Even the Patriots, with all their wins, haven't supplanted the Cowboys as the most valuable franchise in the world. The Warriors, with all their wins, haven't supplanted Lakers either. These are the top teams in each sport and it will always be that way.

Somehow I agree with Ryan Hollins on the last part. Not just because the Clippers is on the rise by acquiring Kawhi and PG13 it doesn't mean they already run the LA. Yeah, they're making the playoffs the last few years and the Lakers haven't. But still, championships do matter. Lakers have 16. Clippers have none. At the very least, win a chip this year and maybe we can consider that the Clippers really runs the LA. Both teams have something to prove this coming season.
