The Los Angeles Clippers landed a dream player in Chris Paul. He knows how to utilize talent better than anyone in the NBA but is also an elite defender when his knees hold up.
He will join Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan to create "Lob City" in L.A.
Griffin and Jordan are two extremely athletic players who are far from reaching their ceiling. While Griffin will most likely reach historic heights, he is the true key for the Clippers to become a dynasty in the future.
The former Oklahoma Sooner must work on his ability to be a team defender and also develop a complete offensive post game. Once that is accomplished, there is nothing stopping him from being the best power forward in the NBA.
Caron Butler has had some health issues but will prove to be crucial if he stays healthy. He can score around 15 points a night and spread the floor with his shooting ability.
The Clippers also have two other point guards who will split time throughout the season: Chauncey Billups and Mo Williams.
While they are not legit shooting guard options, it is all Los Angeles has for now. Both can score, but just how effective will they be in the end?
This seems to be the biggest weakness for the Clippers, but not enough to keep them from being all hype.
Side note: I'm hoping "Lob City" wears off soon, though. That's a terrible nickname...
