Blog: Even With Paul A Clip, It’s Still A Lakers Town

Brad Gold (CBS) –– For a few days the Clippers have been the talk of the town, the little guys across the hall landed the big-time point guard that the Lakers not only wanted, but needed.

Sure they gave up Eric Gordon, who may be the most underrated player in the league, but they got Chris Paul!

Even Kobe is excited about watching the Clippers play! ” Chris is vastly entertaining, for sure I would definitely check them out, they are a team with a high-motor, they run up and down the floor.”

Seeing CP3 run the floor with Blake Griffin is worth the price of admission — add Caron Butler and DeAndre Jordan and they definitely have a solid squad — maybe better than the Lakers!

But do you really think the Lakers will ever let the Clippers take control of this city? On paper the Clippers appear to have more talent, words I never thought I would type.

The Lakers roster is littered with question marks, and they gave away Lamar — but we all know something big is on the horizon, if it’s not, the Clippers will finish with a better record than the Lakers; But it will only be a one year thing.
