The Los Angeles Clippers were finally able to make the “big move” for James Harden that many believed would not happen after talks had seemingly subsided. Now, Los Angeles is rolling out a “Big Four” of Harden, Russell Westbrook, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard, a team that boasts an abundance of talent.

However, will this unit be enough to topple other Western Conference giants like the Denver Nuggets, Phoenix Suns, and Golden State Warriors? That is still to be seen. Check out the reasons why they can and cannot win the 2024 NBA Championship below!

Reasons Why Los Angeles Clippers Can & Can’t Win NBA 2023-24 Championship

Strengths

  • Shooting: Los Angeles ranked second in 3PT% last season; they had ten players taking at least two 3PA per game, and Westbrook was the only player below 36%. Further, the Clippers have started off the 2023-24 regular season making close to 41% of their threes, which ranks first. While they can certainly get cold at any given moment, recent history has been in their favor in this facet of the game. Los Angeles can quickly slash any leads because of its ability to get hot from deep.
  • Star Power: If we created a list based on the best duos in the NBA, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George would rank highly. When you add in Russell Westbrook and James Harden, there is certainly no other team (besides Boston) that has a “top four” like Los Angeles. When you evaluate championship teams over the past decade, every one of them 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 when they are healthy, and as long as Russell Westbrook and James Harden play within themselves, they can be a dominant force in the west.
  • Lineup Versatility: The Clippers have a treasure chest of versatile wings that can play 2-4. Therefore, Los Angeles will be able to put the five players they want on the court without worrying about glaring weaknesses. They can switch without hesitation on defense and switch offensive roles during broken plays.

    Weaknesses

    • Injuries/Injury History: Injuries have been the undoing of this team since George and Leonard joined forces. PG and Kawhi hardly ever stay healthy at the same time, which will be necessary if the Clippers want to win an NBA Championship. However, now that Kawhi and PG are in their 30s and have a lengthy injury history, it becomes less and less likely by the day that they will be able to avoid injury for not only an entire regular season but the postseason, as well.
    • Frontcourt Depth: As far as frontcourt talent goes, Los Angeles definitely ranks middle-of-the-road heading into the 2023-24 regular season. Ivica Zubac and Mason Plumlee are serviceable to some extent; however, there are teams that will dominate that unit, including Minnesota, Memphis, Denver, Milwaukee, Boston, and several others. Still, it may not matter, as the Clippers have enough versatile wings to mitigate this weakness.
