When you see footage like this of one of the game’s best players picking up a ball and swishing a half-court shot without even thinking about it, it’s a nice reminder of just how ridiculously skilled these guys are at their chosen craft.

Chris Paul became the latest to get caught on video showcasing his talent by sinking a shot from incredible distance with ease, and essentially as an afterthought following his team’s practice.

PBT Extra bold prediction previews: Clippers ready to win West?

With our PBT Extra videos, we are previewing the entire NBA by using bold predictions, starting in the Pacific Division (we already did the Warriors).

Some of those predictions come from fans on Twitter where I had sent out a request, including the bold prediction for the Clippers.

It could happen, they are certainly contenders. But two things need to happen.

The big one is their defense, which was middle of the pack last season, needs to move into the top 10 (and DeAndre Jordan needs to play consistently like a guy who is third in Defensive Player of the Year voting).

Second is the new and improved bench unit of Lance Stephenson, Josh Smith, and Jamal Crawford (he’s not new) need to mesh into a unit. Those are three guys who like to create for themselves and make questionable shot choices, getting them play well with others could be a bumpy road.

Stephen Curry said the defending-champion Warriors would have no problem picking up where they left off.

His swagger certainly remains intact.
