Default Who do you respect more, the Clippers or Thunder?

I'm seeing a lot of bitching about the heavy ref favoritism for OKC, and how Westbrook and Durant get a ton of free throws. I also see a lot of bitching about the Clippers and their flopping. These are the two top teams in the league right now, so my question is, which do you respect more? You have to pick one over the other.

Me? I respect the Clippers more because they don't flop as much as they did last season and seem to win more honestly than the Thunder do. Then again, outside of Westbrook, I hate the Thunder, so I'm biased.

Thunder. Crawford Bledsoe and Jordan are the only likable players on that team.

Clippers can control their flopping. Thunder can't control what the refs call.


It's not like its the whole team either.... Just Durant

With the amount of calls they DON'T give Westbrook, it almost evens out...

Clippers are less boring to watch. In fact, they're the epitome of entertainment in the league right now. They have the showtime + the flops, you just can't beat that.

Clippers haven't flopped much this year. Even last year, it was overblown since "Flop City" worked so well with "Lob City" and because they got so much media attention.

I swear, the things people try to nitpick about just to hate

The flopping by LAC is severely overblown. Reaching almost myth status now.

I've said since last year that OKC get a LOT of calls. I wouldn't call that dishonest. And they're a great team, regardless.


But I do think the Clippers are better. I think they're the best team in basketball. And, outside of my Knicks, they're the team I'd be happiest to see win the title...tho I feel something for Nash.
