Lots of folks were thinking last year was their time and the Sterling controversy would've made for a sweet story, but it was not to be as they lost in 6 games to the OKC Thunder, a series that had its controversial officiating.
So what about next season?
The Clippers have added some frontcourt depth and hopefully by season's opening, the Sterling issue will be over.
Could the Clippers overthrow the defending champion Spurs or get past the Thunder (who have been mostly quiet this off-season) or Warriors again (who have added new players as well)?
I think the Clippers have to win soon with that stacked roster, otherwise Chris Paul will continue to be criticized and perhaps rightfully so.
