Love that deal every day of the week. T hese are crazy days for Downtown NBA fans, and especially for the Laker and Clipper faithful. While still trying to get over the whole lockout mess, we were hit with the Chris Paul saga. He’s a Laker! He’s not! Then suddenly, the Clippers have the world’s second best point guard. Wow! Paul is a leader and has unreal vision. He’s now playing with the most athletic guy in the league not named LeBron in Blake Griffin. This will be fun. I figure it’s time to give my season outlook for both teams that reside in Staples Center. The 66-game schedule certainly won’t be short on excitement.
