Clippers are over rated.. Lakers are the better team! -Lakers are bigger -Lakers have the best Duo -Zubac and Harrlold can't stop Cousins, LeBron, or AD -Beverly can defend but so can Avery Bradley -Mc Gee is a better rim protector than anyone on clippers. -Lakers have more players who have actually won rings!! -People say Clippers are more stable because their guys have been playing longer together?? They have like 3 guys that played regular minutes last year.. Not something to brag about.. Cousins, AD, Rondo never played together?? How about LeBron, Kuzma, McGee, KCP, Rondo? Didn't they also play with each other last year?? -Lakers actually have good coaching now.. Talk about Doc Rivers all you want.. Lakers actually have an edge in player development with Phil Handy.. Who is the Clippers Assistant coat?? Someone not even worth mentioning 😂 -Lou Williams dosent defend well -Paul George dumped Doc Rivers Daughter for a stripper he got pregnant .. I'm sure that tension is an X factor -Kawai only won a ring in Toronto because KD was injured -Kawai and Paul George are not leaders and don't distribute the ball like LeBron can.. LeBron averages twice as many assists -In short , I am looking forward to seeing all the Laker haters cry when LeBron holds up that trophy

Clearly Windhorst hates the Lakers because when Lebron was on Cleveland every fake rumor out of his fat mouth was praise.

McDonald's would be actually a healthy choice for windworst. That guy in the documentary who ate McDonald's 30 days in a row is much more fit than him. Just eat mcdonalds for a while to lose some weight man. We all worry for you.

They are acting like cook is going to be a difference maker. Never thought he was that great with golden state. Plus on the defensive side he is trash. Now Danny Green can play!!

that Clips lineup is going to be punished down low.. i would put in Bradley instead of Rondo.. i think they specifically put in Rondo to make the lakers closing lineup weaker than it is.. but even then, that lineup with Rondo is still stronger than the Clips' lineup especially inside. Williams? he is going to be punished by Green.. the only advantage they have is Kwahi vs Kuzma.. Bradley vs Beverly is a tie.. Ad vs Harrel? LBJ vs PG13? They are going to feel pain by the 3rd game of a 7 game series.

Exactly. They are small to the extreme. Zubac is their only true center. Harrell is the next and only 6'8. Zubac was overpaid. At the time when the Lakers gifted him to the Clips it was viewed as a terrible trade but it did free up salary and a cap hold that would have prevented moves the Lakers made later. Zubac is not worth what he received for averaging. 7, 5. 1 and is not worth 7 million a year.

Rondo is not starting. Stop putting him as a starter in the graphics. If you can’t shoot your not starting. Bron Bradley Green Ad Boogie Needs to b the first 5

Id have Bron, d green, kuzma, ad and boogie in my starting lineup. That way, the shooters and defenders are mixed up a little more.

Only "Underdog" is AD's injury prone ass. Even PG-13 came back to MVP form after breaking his leg the way he did a few years ago.

Windy look like somebody spoon fed him what to say and when he got called out on Green shooting 45% he looked so dumbfounded. Somebody handed Windy his talking point. ESPN is such a clown network lol.

“Underdogs to some of these teams” the only team I see beating them really is the Clippers and I’m not even hating on any teams I feel like if Bucks kept Nikola def would’ve had them and I kinda wanna say Philly but idk if they beat the clippers I don’t see anyone stopping them

.... what else is AD gonna say? 'well we're the second best but we still okay, fam' of course he gonna say they the best. any team that's a top 5 team is gonna say that. sure, if they were a bottom 10 team he gonna be real and say we got a great group of guys, just need to add some pieces -- but if you're a legit contender then ofc you gonna quote Khaled WE DA BEST ....da fuq these guys smoking, actin' like he saying anything
