Clippers will be a team to be reckoned with in the west


I tuned into the Laker and Clipper game Monday night. All I have to say is Wow! The Clippers look scary good. Chris Paul (my favorite non-Blazer) has completely changed the way they play. He's making DeAndre Jordan look like an all star center and is generally making life easier for all of his teammates. The addition of Billups too makes them really difficult to deal with, as he is money in the bank when left open. Chris Paul is usually a one-man wrecking crew on defenses and now when teams try to trap or double team him, he has guys he can pass to who can take advantage of a scrambling defense. I know this team lost Gordon, Aminu, and Kamen, but they added CP3, Billups, Caron Butler, and now rebounding machine Reggie Evans. That is a huge upgrade in the immediate. Maybe some of my impression was due to the Lakers taking a step back or not taking the preseason very seriously, but I was very impressed with what I saw from the Clips. The Blazers will definitely have their hands full with them this year.
