The NBA season is less than a month away and after all the offseason craziness everyone is itching to see how some of the new-look teams will fare. The Los Angeles Clippers held Media Day for the press yesterday to showcase some of their new players in Clipper threads especially big free agent signings Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.
