This year’s Western Conference Finals are considered by many to be the Clippers vs. the Clippers
Lakers forward Dudley was interviewed recently. The Clippers led 3-1 in the Western Conference semifinals and then were reversed by the Nuggets. They were very surprised and could not laugh.
"We are laughing, we can't laugh, we can't believe that such a thing can happen. I originally thought they could beat the Nuggets in Game 7, and I don't think they would lose. The mentality of our team is The Clippers must be defeated next."
"We want to play against the Clippers, and they want to fight us. The trash talk between us has already begun."
He ridiculed the Clippers for being too high-profile and too awkward, "During the epidemic, their Beverly said how good they were, and their'Playoff P'(George) said he and Kawai are the best. Kava Yi also shot an advertisement with a crown and billboards. Every day we go to training, we can see Kawai's billboard."
The so-called big heat must die, the Clippers suffered heavy losses in the playoffs, coach Rivers sadly dismissed get out of class, in the competition with the Lakers this season, the Clippers lost.
Earlier, anonymous Lakers executives criticized the Clippers, saying that they spent billions of dollars in recruiting troops and attracting media attention, while the Lakers were working hard and focused on winning the championship.
