I'm pretty sure the Mayans were right. We all died last week and now we're in Clippers Heaven. How else to explain the 14-game winning streak? Magic Johnson calling us the rightful heirs to Showtime? And most surprising of all, the endless stream of love coming from ESPN these days? Here, for your reading pleasure on your personal fluffy cloud beyond the pearly gates, is today's Per Diem (formerly John Hollinger's column, now written by a rotating cast), in which an argument is made that the Clippers just might actually be the best team in the West. Enjoy.
