After acquiring two of the biggest stars in the NBA this offseason, it was only fitting that the Los Angeles Clippers released their schedule in comic book form.
The comic is full of cartoon rendering of Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and the rest of the Clippers squad racing to finish first against their NBA rivals.

It’s certainly a creative way to introduce a season that Clippers fans have sky-high expectations for. For the first time in franchise history, the team is the favorite to win the championship to start the season.
The Clippers will begin their season against their Staples Center neighbors and fellow title contenders, the Los Angeles Lakers. Already, the two teams have been hyped to be among the best in the league, and the world won’t have to wait long to see them actually go head-to-head on the court.
Although it might seem like it by the way it has been blown up by the media, the Lakers aren’t the only threat the Clippers face on their road to a trophy. The comic shows George and Leonard racing against the Giannis Antetokounmpo-led Milwaukee Bucks, James Harden and Russell Westbrook with the Houston Rockets, and Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons with the Philadelphia 76ers.
One thing is certain: this season will be one for the ages, and the Clippers will have many memorable, comic book-worthy matchups against the elites of the NBA.
