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!!

Perhaps Windhorst needed a Job at LA Lakers he didn’t get it got pissed off now trying to disrespect 2 or 3 times champs Danny Green I am gonna act like Stephen A Smith for a minute “ZIP IT” You don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

Windworst should be the GM for the Lakers.

Lakers are more known names they aren’t as good as fan make them seem
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.
Dr. Drake Ramoray

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.

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

Lakers will go 56-26 and will be a 4th seed and play the rockets in first round win but in 7 then play Denver wins in 5 then play the blazer or warriors in western conference finals then win in 6 then play 76ers who will get swept by them because of the 76ers injuries

He wasn’t saying a series that goes 7 games. He was talking about a 7-game series whether it goes 5, 6, or 4. Windy’s fallen victim to this negativity that has to be put attached to every Lakers story.
Balling Like I'm Tobe
Kuzma is more effective at the 4 and Lebron is better at the 3. And I would have Bradley and Green as the guards to finish the game while Lebron plays point foward.

BRIAN W. must be out of the LEBRON circle because he take shots at THE KANG and anybody associated when he can. Clipper roster is nice but who really going to perform when it gets thick. I think many will say the better team but I need to see that in the playoffs. I dont put much stock in the regular season.

The only time he doesn't have a cock in his mouth is when LeBron is playing. It's kinda hard to watch a game when you have a cock in your mouth.

I think the West is going to be the tightest race it has ever been in for the last 2 decades. Probably going to be 12 teams fighting for their playoff lives right down to the end.
