    Starts at about 3:20 where Harrell said Clippers are gonna be something special.



    Anyways, i personally think rockets have a way way better chance, but going in as like people are saying the window of the Warriors and Rockets are done plays out in this scenario like there runs are over, and are just teams that are gonna have 4-5 seed implications. I just dont get it. La teams still have chemistry issues, or possible will, so there betting like everything gonna jell real fast.

    “Way way better chance” will definitely make it sound ridiculous. It can go either way. But to be fair I was originally going to call you out for being a homer and say Clippers have the way deeper roster (only cuz you said way way better). But decided to look at it in full to prove my point and I actually believe I was wrong.
    Let’s say Kawhi/George/Lou and Harden/Russ/EG are a wash. Bev/Harrell/JGreen and PJ/Clint/Austin is close. They got Shamet and Zubac, we got House and Chandler. It’s a lot closer than I thought. Won’t bother with the Harden vs Kawhi argument, but I think most people view PG13 > Russ, and their team more well rounded with our lack of forward depth. But that’s all to be determined. Only thing I’d give them for sure is Doc > MDA come playoff time. I think that’s a big difference. Otherwise can go either way.

    Not surprised by Vegas. Rockets not well respected any where near los Angeles or Oakland.

    The media believes in Lebron effect u put in a bunch of role players next to Lebron that’s a finals team. You add Davis his best ever teammate the odds makers think chip

    I was looking at the depth of the Rockets, Clippers, Lakers

    The Rockets have better depth, more 3 point shooting, but can Daryl find some Forwards that have height.
    Chris Clemons, Danuel House, Anthony Bennett really need to blossom in this system to be a #1 seed
    and be in the playoff rotation, not sitting out rookies in the playoffs.

    Lakers I believe have health, age issues, plus their Guards cannot shoot 3s Rondo
    Danny Green is spot up shooter, LeBron James and Anthony Davis cannot play a whole without being injured
    Dwight Howard is in great shape, but can he play the pick and roll, his picks are half hearted. He can't move laterally when he was bigger on defense.
    Kyle Kuzma played bad defense last year, along with LeBron James.
    The depth doesn't impress me.

    Clippers have a Great Starting 5 but the bench is questionable to me.
    Beverley can't dribble create for others or slash to the basket at all, only spot up
    Montrezl Harrell is a average Rebounder at best, his offense improved.

    Clippers have the best bench in nba,

    I don’t expect Clemons and Bennett’s to be blossomed.

    I don't understand how you can call the Clippers bench questionable. Harrell and Lou were giving teams trouble last year. Hell, the Rockets do not have anybody that can contain Harrell.

    So your saying an organization designed to make money off of people by setting odds as to who is going to win, merely had an agenda in slighting an org that hasnt won a chip in 25 years and has had a **** tonnof drama lately?

    Hmmmmmm interesting.

    Not surprised by vegas bet makers. cp3 might have been gambling away our chances at winning it all!
    Far"weed" smoked our dreams up like a old chimney and lot of the dreamers who believed he would get in the game during playoffs against golden state.
    I like odds of scottie brooks coaching over odds of Rockets getting a chip!
