Los Angeles Clippers NBA Championship Odds 2022-23

The current Los Angeles Clippers NBA championship odds are . Los Angeles struggled last season, finishing 42-40 after star forward Kawhi Leonard tore his ACL in the 2021 playoffs. Paul George was able to drag LA to some victories during the 2021-22 campaign; however, everything went south after he suffered an elbow injury that kept him out for more than half the season.

Once George went down, the Clippers had virtually no shot at being a true competitor in the Western Conference, and it showed when they lost in both of their play-in games. Still, this did not deter Los Angeles from thinking about its future; it was able to make a big-time trade with the Portland Trail Blazers at the deadline that brought in Robert Covington and Norman Powell in exchange for Justise Winslow, Keon Johnson, Eric Bledsoe, and a second-rounder. The Clippers also were able to sign point guard John Wall in the off-season, giving them another talented playmaker and scorer alongside George and Leonard. Check out the Clippers’ updated future odds below and whether or not I believe they have what it takes to make a championship run this season!

Los Angeles may not get as much attention this off-season as some other teams; however, it has put itself in a prime position to make a run at its first championship in team history. Currently, the Clippers have everyone healthy, including stars Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and John Wall. You could argue that they have one of the deepest teams in the NBA, as long as they are healthy. Additionally, they have been one of the best defensive teams in the league over the past few years, and that should continue. Look out for the Clippers to compete for a championship this season; much like the Golden State Warriors, injuries are the only thing between them and a Western Conference Finals trip at a minimum.

Reasons Why Los Angeles Clippers Can & Can’t Win NBA 2022-23 Championship

Strengths

  • Shooting: Los Angeles has been the best three-point shooting team for two consecutive years; it was even able to retain its 3P% title last season after Paul George and Kawhi Leonard were out. Now, George and Leonard should be healthy, and Robert Covington and Norman Powell, two solid shooters, are on the roster. The Clippers should again be atop the league in 3P%.
  • Star Power: If we created a list based on the best duos in the NBA, Kawhi Leonard, and Paul George would likely be in the top five. When you evaluate championship teams over the past decade, every single one has at least a dynamic duo, if not a trio of superstars. Leonard and George are talented enough on both ends of the floor to take over a game and a series.
  • Defense: Los Angeles had one of the best defenses in the NBA during the 2020-21 season but dropped a bit last season. Of course, this slight regression can be primarily attributed to injuries to Paul George and Kawhi Leonard. Last season, the Clippers finished seventh in defensive efficiency, fourth in opponent eFG%, and sixth in opponent 3P%, which is still nothing to scoff at.

    Weaknesses

    • Age: Los Angeles does not have a ton of high-impact players that are less than 29 years old. Here’s a list of players at that age or older: Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, John Wall, Reggie Jackson, Robert Covington, Nic Batum, Marcus Morris Sr, and Norman Powell. The Clippers are not as old as some other teams, and having guys in their early-30s is not the end of the world when you are in contention every year; however, older players can be more susceptible to injuries.
    • Injury History: In this case, injury history goes hand in hand with age. Kawhi Leonard is fresh off an ACL tear, Paul George missed more than half of the 2021-22 season due to an elbow injury, John Wall hasn’t played in an NBA game in over a year, and Norman Powell suffered a left foot injury recently. If the Clippers can’t stay healthy, they have little chance of winning the championship, regardless of the talent on their roster.
