As the Clippers stand on the brink of a playoff run, it will be down to the front office to secure many future successful seasons for the organisation.
With the All-Star game a mere couple of weeks away, it is important to reflect on the players chosen for the line-up and how they got there.
For the Lakers to bounce back and make themselves a playoff-contender again, the front office will need to look to sign a high-level player to aid LeBron James and lead the team while LeBron recovers.
Consider this scenario: the season ends today, on 12th January 2019, who would the postseason awards be distributed to in this case? For the majority of these awards there is often a clear-cut winner (we’re looking at you, Luka Doncic), but when it comes to the MVP award, two names spring to mind: James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
