Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Playoff Series Thread

33 posts in this topic

The Los Angeles Clippers led by Chris Paul and Blake Griffin will face Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder in round 2 of the playoffs. I find myself wanting to pick the Clippers because they are pretty much a better version of memphis, the bigs are just as good or better plus they have a better pg than memphis.  But i see no one on LA who can guard Durant as well as tony allen did so i dont know who to pick in this series.

 

 

 

Starters

Clippers:

Chris Paul

JJ Redick

Matt Barnes

Blake Griffin

DeAndre Jordan

 

 

 

Thunder:

Russell Westbrook

Thabo Sefolosha

Kevin Durant

Serge Ibaka

Kendrick Perkins

Really pulling for the Clippers.  If DeAndre can be the monster he was last series it'll be a great series.  Will be in attendance on Friday.  Can't wait.

    • You do realize no one wanted RyanCare/ObamaCare Lite to pass, right? If anything, the media and democrats has made themselves absolute fools lately. STILL no evidence Trump colluded with Russia whatsoever, which is quite the funny irony in this whole conspiracy. Trump inherited a mess. Hard to fix this mess when you got crybaby globalists and dems everywhere.    
    • I hate this DG analogy so much.  It only makes sense in the context of an efficient market where teams are rational, have perfect information, and scouts are always right about players.  But we have ample evidence that is not the case.  Sometimes, talented players just don't work out.  Injuries derail careers.  Teams make oddball picks.  Sometimes, you are just wrong about a player (see Ealy, Kony). I like him a lot, but DG's habit of always trading up / never trading down may ultimately be his downfall in CAR.  It results in a lack of depth across the roster and it makes your roster very vulnerable to i) injuries (see 2015 vs. 2016) and ii) missing on evals.  If we missed on Funchess (jury still out), that hurts - but missing on Funchess when you traded multiple picks to get him compounds the issue. Trading up and trading down are both valid strategies - but I'd suggest balancing the two strategies would improve your chances of long-term success.
