4 bold predictions for Los Angeles Clippers entering 2020-21 NBA season

The Los Angeles Clippers were one of the heavy favorites to win the 2020 NBA Finals, but after losing in the Western Conference Semifinals to the Denver Nuggets after being up 3-1 in the series, a lot of things changed with this organization in the offseason, starting with the firing of head coach Doc Rivers. 

Former NBA champion head coach Tyronn Lue will now call the shots for the Clippers and will look to finally bring this organization to their first Western Conference Finals. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are both still a part of the Clippers organization and Los Angeles reassured George he is in their long-term plans by signing him to a four-year, $190M contract extension. 

Last season in the NBA Bubble, Paul George struggled and was more of a liability on the court than a superstar player. Regardless of his struggles at the end of last season, Paul George is still one of the better over players in the entire NBA and will look to deliver on his promise of bringing a championship to the Clippers this upcoming season.

Montrezl Harrell was a big part of the Clippers success last season, winning the Sixth-Man of the Year Award and being the heart-and-soul of this organization. After losing in the Western Conference Semifinals though, Harrell made it known he wanted to sign with a team in free agency who had the best chance to win a championship and he decided to walk across the Staples Center to the Los Angeles Lakers’ locker room, betraying the entire Clippers organization.

Not only does this move negatively affect the Clippers defensively, but it leaves a major hole in the frontcourt on this Clippers’ roster. Serge Ibaka did sign with the Clippers this offseason and will look to help fill the void Harrell left, but is a completely different player than Harrell is and it will take time for him and the Clippers to get used to one-another. 

With all of that being said, here are 4 bold predictions for the Los Angeles Clippers heading into the 2020-21 NBA season.
