I know we say that the Raptors with Kawhi were a better team than the clippers but this was not the sentiment at the time. Everyon thought the Clippers were loaded with PG.
If Clippers choke again, he might start getting a wandering eye towards a better team. One he has history with.
It wasn't even close as to which the better team was. We won a title when the league was extremely top heavy while the Clippers couldn't even make the conference finals in a super weak year.
- Bucks with Brogdan/Mirotic
- Sixers with Butler/Redick
- Celtics with Kyrie/Rozier/Morris/Horford
- Rockets with Harden/CP
- Gstate with Klay/Durant - Sure we lucked out not facing Durant and some of Klay but they still made the Finals and were actually favored to beat us without Durant
Any one of those teams would be favourites in 2020 where the league parity changed completely. The Heat made the finals for God's sake lol. Oh and we were also without OG and still won.
