  • all right.

  • The latest ESPN MBA power rankings just dropped on the APP.

  • The Clippers are at the top, followed by the Lakers, Sixers, Jazz and Nuggets of Perk.

  • Do you think these power rankings Air accurate?

  • Are the Clippers playing the best basketball in the league Right now?

  • They are playing some of the best basketball.

  • Rachel, but I still get a slight is to Philly.

  • But I tell you what.

  • The Clippers are on the mission, and everyone, including myself, talked about how they didn't do well in the off season.

  • But guess what?

  • Nicolas Batum has been the unsung hero.

  • Paul George is playing some of the best basketball of his career.

  • He's bounced back after the harvest, Uh, postseason that he had CO y has been co wide.

  • Reggie Jackson has stepped up tremendously and great job by Thai Luk because these guys have bought in their Shandra ball.

  • They're competing at a high level on the defensive end, and you could feel the energy.

  • And most importantly, the thing that I've witnessed is Kawai is starting to be more vocal.

  • He's starting to be a better leader.

  • I'm watching them interact with guys and talk with guys and trust guys.

  • So the Clippers are dangerous.

  • And guess what?

  • If I'm the Lakers, I'm keeping a close eye on them because they will possibly have to see them in the Western Conference and it won't be a cakewalk.

  • Or the Clippers could possibly beat the Lakers if the Lakers were not careful.

  • Boiled boy.

  • The Utah Jazz lose one game to the modern day Arvydas Sabonis, and they're not even in the conversation for who's playing the the Jazz Air playing the best basketball right now.

  • They just had an 11 game winning streak, but in reality Clippers, Lakers Jazz, wait a minute.

  • Wait blue in those power rankings at how could there not in the conversation, they were number 24 There were four.

  • There were four.

  • You asked me who is playing the best right now.

  • The team that just an 11 game winning streak that blew everybody away.

  • But the Clippers Clippers air also blew.

  • The Clippers are also blowing people away.

  • I mean, they killed the king's twice.

  • They killed the Pacers.

  • The Magic.

  • They are running roughshod over teams and yeah, they look every bit the title contender that we thought they were.

  • I picked them to win the title last year.

  • I was wrong.

  • I think this team has enormous potential and Paul George is having his vengeance towards just like he said he would.

  • And Kawai looks like Hawaii.

  • So the Clippers have to be really, really encouraged by how they're playing, how they've taken to some of the adjustments that Thailand has made to their style and their rotation.

  • They look really, really good.

  • Well, look, I like what you said perk about sharing the ball just from the eye test, watching the way they play those hockey assists.

  • It's not just the the passes that lead to the basket, but the passes that lead to the basket to basket lead to the best.

  • Rachel E.

  • I love it when you give me this good gospel Monday way.

  • You talk about that I test and not getting caught up in analytics.

  • That lets me goes to know that you are sitting in front of your television, you actually watching the game, you know, that's what basketball purists, dude, absolutely watching with their eyes.

  • Rachel.

  • Well, the three I test gives you all those hockey assist, but I will say, if you could Ivan to the analytics, You've got good numbers for the Clippers.

  • There to Perk High has the third highest player efficiency rating in the league this season.

  • He's played in 17 of the Clippers 21 games, which is also an important number, and he's averaging 34 minutes a game.

  • So, Zach, what do you think has changed for quiet in his second season in L.

  • A.

  • Uh, not that much.

  • He's Kawhi Leonard.

  • He's freaking amazing.

  • He's amazing.

  • In L.

  • A.

  • Is amazing at Toronto.

  • He's amazing.

  • In San Antonio, stats look about the same as defense is as ferocious as ever.

  • The one thing that does jump out, though it's interesting to monitor.

  • We saw that dunk on R.

  • J.

  • Barrett earlier.

  • Quiet is shooting 80% at the basket this season.

  • He's usually in the mid sixties like most people are.

  • He's now up in LeBron territory, where you're like, Oh my God, he's dunking.

  • Everything is finishing everything at the basket.

  • Maybe it says he's healthier.

  • Maybe it says he's feeling more pop in his legs.

  • I don't know what it is, but if that keeps up, if that keeps up in the Clippers.

  • By the way, you don't get to the rim much and you don't earn free throws.

  • If they can get those numbers up, then they become a really scary team.

  • Absolutely.

  • The thing that stands out to me the most about Kawai, besides his leadership, is that he's finally looks 100% healthy.

  • He's playing back to back.

  • He's not taking any games off.

  • He's driving and he's driving to the basket with force and he's elevating and think elevating above the rim.

  • And he's looked like the co wild oh, before the injury, and that's a beautiful thing to see.

  • Right now.

  • He's playing at the M V P type level two along with Paul George, and this is the duo that we've all been waiting to see and they're playing at their peak right now and giving a clip of something to be proud of.

  • Mm is gonna be so interesting to watch to me, just the fact that he's played in that first back to back and and been more confidence because you say with with the way that he's just sort of moved on the court and some of the shots and and dunks that he's making you feel like he feels like he's healthier.

  • We'll have to see.
