VIDEO: DeAndre Jordan Dunks On Pau Gasol to Open the Chris Paul Era in Los Angeles

Write this down: the Clippers are going to be really fun to watch this season. In the first quarter of what might have been the most-watched preseason game in NBA history, DeAndre Jordan announced the Clippers’ arrival emphatically.

I still have reservations as to whether the Clippers are good enough to challenge the best teams in the Western conference. My three reasons? (1) They are thin up front, (2) any team coached by Vinny Del Negro is probably going to lose at least 5 more games than they reasonably should, and (3) above all, they’re still the Clippers.
