LA Clippers:

    The Netflix documentary The Last Dance celebrates the unknown side of Michael Jordan and his dream team. But for a few people, it was Dennis ‘The Worm’ Rodman who caught their eyes. The flashy personality of Dennis never came between him and the quality of his game. LA Clippers power forward Montrezl Harrell agrees to this. The 26-YO was drafted in 2015 and has shown decent growth ever since. When the Houston Rockets drafted him, Harrell would not get enough playing time. Later on, he signed a three-year deal worth $3.1 Million and bettered exponentially his average playing time. This also reflected positively on his overall career statistics.

    The LA Clippers are gradually cementing their place as the team to beat in the west. Upon signing Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the same year, they have become a mighty force to reckon with.

He’s had intense matchups with several stars, including LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and many of the league’s dominant players.

Paul George brought up these chemistry issues in a recent press conference but believed that the team will ultimately be successful. “It was a little frustrating because we played ourselves into...

    The Los Angeles Clippers may be currently considered as the heavy favorite to bring home the Larry O’Brien Trophy in the 2019-20 NBA season, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they would no longer find ways to improve their current roster.
