Listen to Rob Parker and Chris Broussard discuss recent comments made by former NBA player Matt Barnes that had the one-time Los Angeles Clippers enforcer telling Chris Paul in an interview that he thought their Clippers teams of the mid-2010's was the greatest NBA team who never won an NBA Finals.
Those 'Lob City' teams, of course, were highlighted by All-NBA superstars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, but also featured a loaded supporting cast that featured names the likes of DeAndre Jordan, JJ Redick, Jamal Crawford, Darren Collison, Chauncey Billups, Caron Butler and Eric Bledsoe.
Despite also boasting a Hall of Fame championship coach in Doc Rivers, those Clippers teams shockingly never advanced past the second round of the playoffs.
