What started off as a random ‘Go Clippers’ hashtag by a supporter, fans started to chime in with the hashtag. Eventually Clipper nation went absolutely berserk as #Go Clippers was a trending topic worldwide.

This also spoke volumes about how dynamic the Clippers’ fan club is. Not only are they ready to cheer their team in any circumstance, they can certainly rock the Staples Center as well. Just as their fan base, LAC this season have an underrated team.

Although their superstar Kawhi Leonard will miss majority of the upcoming season, the team still has players like Paul George. PG13 absolutely thrived when he was the number option in the playoffs. Apart from George, the team will rely on the likes of Reggie Jackson and Terrence Mann who stepped up in the offensive end in the playoffs.

The Clippers might not be a powerhouse in the West this season, but if Leonard makes his return before the playoffs, LAC can be a big problem in the West.
