He may act like a fool. But when he's serious, the stuff he says are accurate most of the times. Everything he's said about the Clips for past couple years were correct, the highlights Clips put up daily overshadowed our flaws.

You can't bash him for saying Clips were pretenders early this season, because let's be honest, nobody expected BG (not CP3) to play at MVP level right behind Lebron and KD. DJ's drastic improvement has been a very pleasant surprise as well. If these things didn't happen, we'd still be pretenders.

I wouldn't say we're the best, since there's no clear favorite. Best 3 teams in west's like a triangle.

Clips > Thunder

Thunder > Spurs

Spurs > Clips

Actually we can, because over the summer, he called us the best team in the West, then when the season began, he denied ever saying that and went back to his usual bashing. I realize Chuck is mainly there for comic relief, not serious takes, but at least be consistent.

We might be, but it all comes down to those playoffs!! I will be very satisfied to see us in the Conference Championships or Finals!

I'm ready for the playoffs!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually I can too. So our first month we didn't go undefeated,that made us pretenders. Leave off the fact we had a new coach, a new SG, and new SF and half the bench were new. Because we didn't play like we do now , because we were still trying to find our beat. Charles talks out of his rear way too much and I can't wait for him to leap off our bandwagon ,but that will cause a 5.7 on the Richter scale when he hits the ground.

What he said was just based on what he saw previous years, and beginning of this season (which you gotta admit wasn't very pretty). You can say we need time to adjust, get together, develop chemistry. But really, nobody can ever predict the future. He can only assess what the Clips were at that given moment.

@Quick Never knew that happened. Only person I can remember saying that is Stephan A Smith. If that's true, then I take back what I said.

As part of their job they are predicting what might happen, of course they can always be wrong, but that IS something to judge them on imo. Otherwise there is no point making these predictions.

Their job is to analyze and break down teams current situation. All the predictions are just fun and games.

I think the two best teams in the West are the Clips and the Rox.

I think the Rockets are a bad matchup for every team but us.

Spurs have only beaten one fully healthy elite team. OKC just looks like an Iso team with declining defense.

Would be cool if we could meet the Rockets in the WCF. I wouldn't downplay the Spurs or OKC that much though and the Spurs have been playing great as of late.
