How Far Can the Clippers Go?

Chris Paul is staying with Los Angeles Clippers and has agreed to sign on the dotted line for a whopping $107million. Paul will not be able to sign the deal until July 10, when the league moratorium on signing new deals is lifted.

Paul tweeted the news Monday:

The Clippers have pledged over $200 million to All Stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, but can all that spending along with the highest paid coach, Doc Rivers lead them to a championship? The Clippers also brought in sharp shooter J.J. Redick from Milwaukee along with Jared Dudley, who averaged a career high 10.9 points in the 2012-2013 season, in a three-team deal that will see Eric Bledsoe and Caron Butler dawn the purple, white and orange next season.

Can the Los Angeles Clippers be considered a championship caliber team for the 2013-14 season? Send through your comments to @CuteKidSlim or @NBA_Africa and like the page on Facebook.
