07:20 AM ET 10.17 | This one dates back some time. The feud started, as these things often do, with a Tobacco Road rivalry. A fight at Michael Jordan's camp followed, as did an injury scare. But when J.J. Redick joined the Los Angeles Clippers in July to become Chris Paul's new backcourt mate ... well, both Redick and Paul knew it was finally time to end their dislike of each other. "We have actually had a chance to become real close, real quick," Paul told Yahoo Sports. "Who would have thought after the battles we had in college." Said Redick: "We connected right away." The rivalry between Paul and Redick began when they both played in the Atlantic Coast Conference at schools just a 90-minute drive from each other: Redick starred at Duke from 2002-06 and Paul was at Wake Forest from 2003-05.

Of course, it would have been far more interesting if they had become teammates but remained dire enemies...

This team will be good. They'll be a top 2 team in the west this year.

To whom much is given, much is required.

Sterling (finally) did the team right with the roster he's put together. They should easily win the Pacific and be a threat in the west. If they can get passed San Antonio, can they beat the East should they get to the finals? Odds are the Heat won't win a third title so I'd say yes, the Clippers stand a good chance.

I said the "ODDS" are Miami won't win. Not "CAN'T".

Not a hater, please don't cut me...

Bro, just giving props where props are due and showing not all Purple/Gold are haters or bitter.

But they do look unlike any roster in Clippers history...

CP3 is the best player of both teams.

CP3 > Steph
KT/AI > Reddick
AI/Barnes > Dudley
Lee = BG
Bogut > DJ

I personally like the W's lineup over Clipps.

The Clippers will blow this team out of the water this year. They are finally a legitimate title contender.
