In the “clippers” did not play stuck in quarantine Lou Williams and is still a decisive personal problems off campus in the “Disneyworld” Montrez Harrell, without whom the fighting capacity of the “clippers” were much lower.

Davis spent 20 games per season with a performance of 30 points or more. This allowed him, along with LeBron James to repeat the achievement of the legends of the Lakers Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’neal, the latter in the form of club of Los Angeles alone issued at least 20 games with 30+ points performance in a single season. It was in a distant campaign 2002/2003. Davis and LeBron play together in the Lakers, only the first season. The start is very good, but to win the title remains to be done a lot of work.

The main result of the first day of the NBA is simple: the official NBA finally back. The team has not yet gained the optimal form. This is evident even in top clubs like the Lakers and clippers. It only gets more interesting.
