The Los Angeles Clippers are coming into the 2023-24 NBA season with a lot to prove.
When the team first added Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the franchise seemed poised to take over the league. Unfortunately, due to a combination of injuries and bad luck, those visions never materialized.
With both Leonard and George approaching the end of their contracts with the Clippers, this season is a make-or-break year for the team as it is presently constructed.
Ahead of the new season commencing, photos leaked out of the Clippers’ new uniforms.
Rumor: The Clippers city edition jerseys have reportedly been leaked.

NBA fans are typically a very vocal bunch. They call it how they see it – good or bad.
This proved to be just the latest example of that.

Copying the late 90’s early 2000’s wizards is a choice I guess

Jersey drama aside, the Clippers are in the midst of some very important negotiations with the Philadelphia 76ers centering around James Harden.
At the moment, only one person is blocking a deal from getting done.

L.A. would love to get this one over the goal line ahead of the 2023-24 NBA season beginning, just to take some of the burden off Leonard and George from the jump.
Will the Clippers ultimately be able to live up to everyone’s expectations for them this year? Time will tell.
