Oh, on the tail of Melo proclaiming he and the New York Knicks are the next team to win the title, L.A. Clippers flips the book around and proclaim that the Clippers would have won the championship this year.
No, I am not fabricating.
These are actually words that came from his mouth via the Denver Post.
Billups has been part mentor, part friend to Paul ever since the point guard arrived in the NBA in 2005 from Wake Forest. Paul called playing alongside Billups last season “the best thing ever.”
“I tell people all the time had Chauncey not got injured we was going to win the championship,” Paul said.
Let’s just entertain this delusional thought for a moment, and assume Chauncey was at full strength and assume they advanced to the Western Conference Finals. Does Chris Paul really believe they would have beaten the efficient, athletic, and youthfulness in OKC Thunder??
Kids say the darndest things.
