Sandeep Chandok: Ty Lue revealed on "All The Smoke" that he told his two superstars, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, that "We do gotta approach the regular season a different way. … Let's be serious about it. Let's not wait until the playoffs, because it matters." We'll see if that comes to fruition for the Clippers, who face a tough schedule over the first few months of the season with games against the Lakers, Nets, Celtics, Knicks (twice), Mavericks (three times), Nuggets (twice), Grizzlies (twice), Warriors (three times) and Kings (twice).
Joe Lago: The Clippers will never have to hear the following words ever again — "Grammys Trip." The annual odyssey across the country, caused by the Grammy Awards show that takes over the downtown L.A. arena shared with the Lakers, will no longer be necessary after the 2023-24 season. Next season, the Clips will move into their palatial new digs in Inglewood at the Intuit Dome.
