CP3 secret to beating the Lakers

Chemistry
"The [Lakers] have definitely added some pieces, but the good thing about our team is that we are good enough and tight enough that we only have to worry about us," Paul told Yahoo! Sports at an event in Hollywood hosted by Hennessy to celebrate Paul being featured on the cover of GQ magazine. "The thing about us, we are like a family. When you are all in and competing and you genuinely care about your teammates, it means something. It does something for your team and the camaraderie."

So when there's a football game on, the team gets together, watches the game and feasts on barbecue chicken, salad, rice and corn, all prepared by Paul's chef, of course, because as Paul said "all the Clippers are conscious of what we eat."

"For the next nine or 10 months I will be with these guys more than I will be with my wife, so you have got to build that trust," Paul explained. "There are a lot of guys who are stars in this league who don't really talk to each other as much. With me and Blake [Griffin], we can tell each other anything and that goes for a lot of our team."




Barnes, who spent the last two years with the Lakers, had no criticism of his former employers but did admit that the sense of togetherness at the Clippers may be better.

"As soon as I signed I felt like there was something cool going on and that this was a close group," he explained. "We will see, but it seems to me that it could be the closest [team] I have played on. The guys hang out and you immediately feel welcome. L.A. is home, but the Clippers organization already feels like home, too, and I owe the players for that."


Sounds like their mentality is similar to the Kings of the early 00's that went at the Lakers for years.

Considering they got smashed by a team (Spurs) who got trounced 4 straight by OKC I seriously doubt they will be giving the Lakers much to worry about

    They need a lil bit more than Chemistry to beat the Lakers Like DeAndre Jordan needs to avg more than 6 ppg or @ least avg double digit REB. And HEALTH should have been the #1 priority. CP3 cant stay healthy 2 save his life

    lol @ the 2nd round king CP3 having a "key" to beating anyone. he better fall in line and follow the lead of Chauncey, a real playoff leader.

    if Billups is healthy, then Chris Paul will advance past the 2nd round for the 1st time in his career.

    Lakers need chemistry not the clippers.Clippers can match up wit anybody in the west

    They added Odom,Grant Hill,billups will be bacc,J crossover,barnes they got cats who can defend durant

    Their incompetent head coach could be the only problem.I wish they hired Jerry Sloan

    Chris paul played in 60 of 66 games this past season.80 of 82 games the year before

    The year before that he tore his meniscus.5 of 7 seasons in his career he played 78+ games

    With him, it's the nagging injuries he somehow manages to accumulate. His knee will forever nag him, he had that minor groin issue in the playoffs, and now the thumb.

    Back to an 82 game, normal schedule. I think he will be fine.

    The question for the Clippers is how much better did Blake and Jordan get? And.. If the bench still has some of it's legs. A lot of them guys are 33-34+, and know how to play. But will they be effective? We'll see

    Word the same can apply to the lakers,difference is 4 of their Starters are 32-39 years old

    I think Paul gonna have a year like 08 when he was the mvp of the west before the hornets jagged those games down the stretch,kinda like the thunder did this year

    [email protected] chemistry

    You have steve nash who can play with ANYBODY and make ANYBODY better

    You have Gasol thats has an inside or outside game, so he's flexible and unselfish.. And he will play his best / most consistent ball ever with Nash being there

    Dwight is so happy to be in LA and not have to orlando 🤬 over his head, he's just happy to be there... That man is humbled and aint gonna make a WIMPER 🤬 he know everyone will be on his ass... He gonna score off dunks / offensive rebounds / alley oops / the occasional post up

    Kobe is the most selfish player in basketball... But thats why he has 5 rings... Kobe, as big as his ego is, is FINALLY at a point where he knows he's not the best player in the league... He knows he already has Jordan's respect (all he really cares about)... He know's he's won titles on his own... He has nothing else to prove... He will FINALLY fall back some, and play within the system and let Nash be the primary ball handler.. He knows Lebron had to team up with a super team to win ONE title.. He won 5 without 3 all stars. His legacy is cemented and now he just wants 1 or 2 rings to cap it off.


    Even the most selfish man in the world has enough sense to know he has to fallback to make that happen.




    Lebron / wade both have the same game, that's why that didn't mesh, period. Yall can hope that things were different, but its not.

    The only way the lakers don't win a title next year is if somebody get's hurt... I even think they can win a title as long as Nash / Kobe stay healthy... Hell Kobe could get hurt and I think they'd still make the finals.


    Have to admit it, Nash is the most important player on this team... For his passing ability and ability to get pau to play his best on a consistent basis...


    Pau / Dwight / Nash can get to the finals without Kobe if you ask me.

    So could Kobe / Dwight / Nash

    So could Kobe / Pau / Nash (again, this is ONLY with the thought that Pau will play the best basketball he's EVER played since nash is there.. mentally... which I believe he will)

    I agree with everything said but there is another possibility to the bolded. Mike Brown. I hope his weird coaching tactics dont 🤬 nothng up. He could be the weak link.

    @Bilfiger I wasnt agreeing w/ you Lol

    I'm saying people talked all that 'it takes chemistry' stuff w/ Miami, meanwhile they went to the Finals 1 year and won it the 2nd. Contrary to popular belief, thats NOT a long time (let the media tell it it took forever)

    I'll take a supremely talented team over a team who bowls together anyday.

    It's a difference The east had old ass boston,my one dimensional bulls and nobody else to stop the miami jugganaut

    The heat had multiple 3-4 losing streaks and mad chemistry issues in year 1 they made the finals cuz their talent was better than anybody else in the conferance

    The west has a thunder team who's core have been together 3 years now and has went further each year,the spurs,the clip set etc

    Plus the lakers dont have lebron.Theres nobody on that team that can change the game like lebron james

    No to the extent of a Lebron James but Dwight can change the game from a defensive standpoint .... Bynum had to be one of the laziest defensive Centers i've seen , i dont know how many times i would see a Guard just come in the lane and do a lay up or a floater

    Yup. Only thing is Billups (Achilles, never know how that could effect him), Odom (Dont know what the 🤬 was wrong last year lol) have some serious issues from last year.

    This is the most talent CP3 has had. To me, he was the MVP of the League during the beginning stretch of last season. I wouldn't be surprised if he was Top 2 in MVP votes this year.

    Chemistry is important. You can't downplay it just because Miami won the title in their 2nd year.

    LA ain't built to win their 2nd year, it's built to win NOW, since Dwight is still gonna test FA and Kobe/Nash/Pau all getting closer to retirement.

    You can't expect them to just put on the same uniform and all of sudden click.

    Do I think they can? Yeah. But LA will have it's stretches, just like everybody else where they don't look too good because they haven't played together.

    Miami in it's 1st year together was easily the most talented team in the East.

    LA has to go through OKC, LAC, Memphis, & SA -- All will give them tough matchups if they meet in the Playoffs.

    And, all of them are more talented (Not saying better), than the 76ers, Celtics, and Bulls during their 1st run.
