On the “NBA This Week,” we welcomed Michael Lee of the Vertical and Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post. With the Warriors facing the LA Clippers on Saturday night at Oracle, we talked about what happened to one of the league’s best rivalries.
That’s the way it used to be for the Warriors and Clippers. But now it’s all about the Warriors, who have beaten the Clippers seven consecutive games and 15 of the past 20. With Chris Paul out of tonight’s game, it’s tough to see that trend stopping.
What are the plans for the Clippers? Can they get healthy for one last run or will they try to make a move (Carmelo Anthony?) to shake things up? Other topics of conversation were the Chicago Bulls, who are a mess these days, the New York Knicks and whether or not the Kings would entertain trading DeMarcus Cousins.
Also, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said he would play the Warriors’ four all-stars together during the NBA All-Star game in mid-February in New Orleans. A hot topic of conversation is which player do you want being the fifth on that unit.
