Los Angeles is currently the third ranked team in the NBA Western Conference with a 33-13 record and is only 2 ½ games behind the top ranked San Antonio Spurs — oh, and by the way, I was referring to the Clippers.
There is a new team in Los Angeles, they play at the Staples center but don’t wear purple and gold. For so many years the Clippers have been the little brother to the Lakers. Thrown around by almost every team in the NBA and never given the chance to shine.
Well, this year the tables have turned. The Clippers are the ones near the top of the Western Conference and the once mighty Lakers are the ones fighting for a playoff spot, currently the tenth ranked team in the conference.
