NBA Rumors: Los Angeles Lakers Might Finally be Able to Rule the City Again

Posted on 28 Jun, 2017, by in NBA

Since Chris Paul became a Los Angeles Clipper in 2011, the Los Angeles Lakers have failed to finish above their city rivals, something that rarely happened during the Clippers stay in L.A. up to that point.
