For a team that's had a ton of front office fails in their franchise history, the Clippers still managed to land the biggest free agency singing of the offseason in Chris Paul. They no doubt gave up a lot for CP3, most notably Eric Gordan and Chris Kaman. The team is also a bit crowded at the point guard position with Chancey Billups and Mo Williams playing behind Paul. Caron Butler was a solid addition but they'll still have to see how he'll fare after coming off major knee surgery. To say this team is a lock for the playoffs much less a title contender would be a bit premature. That being said, with CP3 throwing alley-oops to Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan swatting the hell out of any weak shit in the paint this team will certainly make for some must-see-TV this season.
