While the Clippers’ 2019-2020 NBA campaign doesn’t officially begin for another few weeks, the season will start revving it’s figurative gears tomorrow at media day. That annual tradition which is so desperately desired by NBA fans hungering for the start of the season, media day is usually forgotten about within days, but can sometimes provide information on what’s to come in training camp, preseason, and even the regular season.
The Clippers’ media day will stretch from 1 to 3 PM PT this afternoon, taking place at their practice facility in Playa Vista. With Paul George and Kawhi Leonard on the Clips, this will assuredly be the Clippers’ most attended media day ever, as attention on the team has never been higher. Two of Clips Nation’s own will be there to take notes and ask some questions, and there will definitely be plenty of quotes and video running on Twitter tomorrow.
While there might be a lot of the usual “so and so is in the best shape of their life” and “we are really looking to do “blank” on the court this year”, a couple things of import could get tipped off as well. First, and most important — Paul George’s timeline on his return from shoulder surgeries. It’s possible the Clippers keep that under wraps, or that it’s still a bit nebulous, but there will probably be at least some kind of update on his status. Second, Doc might reveal who his tentative starting lineup is right now, or what his thoughts are on the rotation with Paul George out. Reporters will certainly ask about both things — the question is whether or not they get answered, and to what extent.
