The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers are looking forward to the future, ready to bring a championship to the City of Angels.

Both the Lakers and Clippers added NBA Superstars to their respective teams, wanting to win a championship now rather than trying to build a young team through the draft.

The Lakers added six-time NBA All Star Anthony Davis to a team with NBA future Legend Lebron James; while the Clippers added superstars NBA Champion Kawhi Leonard and four-time member of the All NBA Defensive team Paul George.

According to many sports websites and the Las Vegas Sportsbook, the Lakers and the Clippers sit atop the favorites of winning the title this year.

The Lakers have two superstars while they still provided a roster that can add flexibility and support when it’s needed.

The Lakers added players such as: Danny Green, Avery Bradley, Dwight Howard, Jared Dudley, Troy Daniels and Quinn Cook.

This cast is not including the players that remained on the team from last season including Kyle Kuzma, Rajon Rondo, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Javale McGee.

The Clippers also looked to build their team to support their superstars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

These superstars teamed up with a roster that relies greatly on their defensive abilities. The Clippers have great defensive players like Patrick Beverly and Montrezl Harrell to back up their new superstars, and a scoring machine in Lou Williams.

The Lakers and the Clippers will kick off the 2019-2020 NBA season by facing off against each other on October 22 at 7:30 p.m. The Clippers are the home team and the game will be played at the Staples Center.

The Lakers look to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2013, while the Clippers intend to make it farther than their previous history of not advancing far into the playoffs.
