While the Clips are certainly loaded with talent, I've noticed most NBA team don't take them all that seriously, at least not like the teams mentioned above.
Clips seem to be underachievers, dependent on superior athleticism, and somewhat undisciplined.
Lots of teams hoped to face the Clips in the playoffs.
Not saying the Warriors are any better, because I think they're worse. Just too much 3 pointers, one guy working, everyone else just posting up.
