While last season was monumental for the Los Angeles Clippers, they still have plenty of work to do if they’re going to get to the point where they can challenge for a championship.
No one can really argue that the Clippers were a much better team with Chauncey Billups in the lineup. The Clips were 14-6 in the 20 games that Billups played in and 26-20 in the regular season without him. Billups’ injury is concerning and he’s not due back until December but it’s clear that L.A. is committed to the former Finals MVP.

This just in: Blake Griffin is a ridiculous dunker. From throwing down on Kendrick Perkins to teabagging Timofey Mozgov, the Clippers All-Star has shown us several times over how powerful of a dunker he is. Team USA basketball practice was no different for the young stud. In the video above, Griffin throws down a sick dunk off a bounce off the wall. Below, watch Griffin pull off...
