Rumors say that the Los Angeles Clippers front office is ready to break up the whole roster after one season.
The biggest disappointment of the 2019-20 NBA season would have to be the fact that the Los Angeles Clippers could not even make it to the NBA Finals, let alone the Western Conference Finals, as they blew a 3-1 lead to the Nuggets and got bounced out of the Playoffs.

The Clippers downfall would most certainly be their horrid Game 7 performance in the WCSF.
