Despite a losing history, the LA Clippers have had no shortage of great players. To settle the debate of who may be the best ever, we ranked our top 10.
The LA Clippers just might be the unluckiest franchise in all of sports. The rosters have almost always featured star-caliber players, yet due to stronger competition, injuries, and numerous other reasons, the Clippers have never been able to win an NBA title.
Even before they were the Los Angeles Clippers, the franchise has never been able to hoist a trophy. In Buffalo, Bob McAdoo and the Braves could never get to the finals in their three playoff appearances. And in San Diego, the Clippers failed to reach the playoffs altogether.
But make no mistake — there have been some phenomenal players on these teams. That’s been especially true in recent years, under the advisement of Doc Rivers and Steve Ballmer. The two have put the best teams in franchise history on the floor, and have done a great job establishing a precedent for future executives to follow.
In celebration of the upcoming season, we’ve decided to take a look back at the 10 best players that have helped the Clippers get to where they are now.
