The Los Angeles Clippers are going to be a good team next season. They had the best offense in the NBA last season, they still have Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, not to mention quality role players such as Paul Pierce and J.J. Redick among others. They will make the playoffs in the West.
But the loss of DeAndre Jordan to the Mavericks knocks the Clippers out of title contender status, they fall a couple tiers down in the West.
Because those chances to compete for a title are fleeting, the Clippers head my list of free agency losers, through the first week of free agency. The other team on the list? Try the other coast, in Manhattan.
