Why blame him? Before the rise of Griffin and the trading of Paul, everyone still believed the Clippers were losers. Now the Clips are winners of 11 straight, tying a 30+ year old winning streak record set by Bob McAdoo's Buffalo Braves back in the 1974-75 NBA season. He asks: are they real? ....

Can this be real? If this were any franchise other than the Los Angeles Clippers, would we even ask the question? As we wake this morning in defiance of dire interpretations of Mayan prophecy, the Clippers stand as the best team in the NBA. L.A.'s "other" team sits atop the Hollinger Power Rankings, and after the Oklahoma City Thunder fell on Thursday, have seen their chances to win the championship leap all the way to 31.5 percent, by far the highest....

With Billups and Odom for the playoffs, they will bring vital experience and leadership. We were lacking this last year. KMart was experienced and had a few deep runs, but he's not the leader type. ....

We're definitely a team built for the playoffs like few others outside of the Heat, Spurs and Celtics. We've got leadership and experience up the wazoo. As long as everyone is healthy come playoff time, theres no reason we shouldnt win the NBA championship this year. ....

Celtics are quite literally done. You won't win anything with Rondo(whose ability to run an offense is grossly overrated) as your best player and with so-so defense and below average offense. They were much better last season and even then they were false contenders. People forget that Bosh was out for most of the series and act like he isn't a very important piece to the Heat. Bosh is arguably the 2nd most important player since the Heat have no big men. The....
