Why Los Angeles Clippers Shouldn't Worry About Lakers' Stellar Offseason
Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

After losing in the Conference Semifinals, both the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers made some key acquisitions to bolster their roster this offseason.

The Lakers received Steve Nash in a sign-and-trade from the Phoenix Suns to solidify the point guard position, a spot of major concern last season. Then the Lakers re-signed Jordan Hill and added bench scoring in Antwan Jamison. 

The Clippers looked to solidify their bench by adding Lamar Odom and Jamal Crawford, both previously Sixth Man of the Year, and added 40-year-old swingman Grant Hill.
