The Lob City act is fun for regular season but just like 7 seconds or less it won't make any noise in the playoffs. The whole pace slows down. Blake and DeAndre have no post moves to get themselves easy buckets.
maybe CP3 needs to bring it out more in the postseason...he has been exposed quite a few times already and is always hyped up as the best PG, when he always gets out-duel by other elite guards. Deron Williams use to get the best of CP3 when he was Jazz, and D-Rose was eating him up, when they played. Now TP is the one doing it. And there only excuse is that he is doing it alone, and has no good options...**** outta here. Deron Williams had Boozer and made him look like a God...now look at him.
CP3 had that great series against the Lakers only because he was being guarded by Derek Fisher.

you just need a good elite team,
I hate when people say "PG as your best player can't win titles" and then when someone brings up "Isiah, Magic, Tony Parker, Billiups"...they say "those teams were elite" like duh...best teams win titles. You think Lebron won it by himself? You think Kobe was the only star? You think Dirk was playing with scrubs? You probably believe Jordan won those titles all on his own and didn't need Pippen, Grant, Rodman, Toni Kukoc.....smh.

Granted the Clippers are deeper, have a better coach, and a better #2. So there should be no excuses for CP3 at this point.
so are you saying Blake Griffin isn't a good 2nd option?
CP3 is just as bad as BG in the postseason.
