NBA GM Survey: LA Lakers and LA Clippers Are Among Top Topics

The 10th annual GM survey was released by NBA.com and there was plenty to talk about in regards to the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers.

↵

The Lakers were given a 7.4% chance to win the title, 17.9% to win the Western Conference and 77.7% chance of winning the Pacific Division. Those numbers are down from 63%, 96.4% and 96.4%, respectively, in last year's survey. It just shows how different the Lakers look to the rest of the league compared to heading into last season.

Kobe Bryant is the league's best shooting guard, best at getting his own shot, the toughest player and the second-best leader. Mike Brown is the head coach with the second-best defensive schemes.

When it came down to the questions about change, no one showed up more than the Clippers. Chris Paul was voted the league's best passer and second-best point guard and basketball IQ. Blake Griffin was voted the second best power forward and the second-most athletic player in the league.

↵

But the Clippers rated first for best overall moves (85.2%), player with biggest impact (Paul, 100%) and most improved team (66.7%). The Clippers are also the second-most fun team to watch (29.6%) due to Griffin, Paul, DeAndre Jordan and ‘Lob City'.

Looks like the Lakers are still hanging on but just by a thread and the Clippers are the team on the rise. Either way, LA is still a hotbed for NBA talk. Let the discussion continue.
