The NBA is finally back and boy, have the basketball gods given us a game to kick it all off.
For one moonlight night in Los Angeles, The Lakers showed why Laker Nation should be anxious about the Clippers.
In the NBA's annual pre-season survey of team general managers, 46 percent picked the Clippers, aka L.A.'s other team, to win the title (11 percent selected the Lakers). The Lakers have the second-best odds to win the Western Conference this season, just behind their city rivals and tonight's opponent in the Clippers.
James is also coming off a season where he missed 27 games, but with a retooled roster courtesy of the trade to land Anthony Davis, James seems eager to get started. This time around, it'll mean more for the LA Clippers than it ever has before, as the franchise's first-ever National Basketball Association title could be within reach. When both teams are tied at 85, watching the Clippers outscore the Lakers by double digits in that final frame is not a good look.
The rivalry continues to grow, but until the Clippers have banners of their own, they will have to continue looking up at the historical greatness of the Lakers. Another boost to their defense will be the addition of Avery Bradley.
Clippers starters not named Kawhi Leonard scored a total of 22 points.
We Clippers fans get that Los Angeles is a Lakers town. "I forgot with modern media that "unlikely" is going to become on the ticker "out for the year" and all that stuff, so probably my mistake for opening my mouth", he said. "That's my mindset on it".
Many oddsmakers have set the defending champions a 30-1 longshot to retain their crown with a dozen or more teams ranked ahead of them after finals MVP Leonard signed with the Clippers. James has already been making highlight plays and passes in the preseason. "I'm fortunate to have somebody that has been through it and someone that is close to me that I can rely on and know that his interests are for me and my best interests". After racing out to a 13-2 lead, Doc Rivers brought in Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell. They lost their franchise player Anthony Davis, but they acquired a few young prospects in Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart.
And Davis doesn't have to carry his new team, either. James looks forward to finding chemistry with Davis to create an immediate victor - and to persuade Davis to stick around when he hits free agency next summer. This expected jump coupled with Kawhi Leonard leaving the conference, will lead to Tatum's first All-Star appearance. He's also a multi-cat stud with his defensive prowess.
He did the bulk of his damage around the rim, but struggled to get it going the further away he moved from the basket, going 1-of-9 outside the paint. James, who also had nine rebounds and 10 assists, later chased down Clippers guard Landry Shamet on a fastbreak to erase his attempted layup before it touched the rim.
