Magic Johnson, NBA fans crush the Clippers for choking in Game 7 against the Nuggets

The Los Angeles Clippers became the favorites to win the NBA championship when they signed Kawhi Leonard and Paul George back in the summer of 2019.

But there will be no title for the Clippers this year. Heck, there won’t even be a first-ever trip to the Western Conference Finals, as Kawhi and Co. lost Game 7 to the Denver Nuggets, 104-89, in embarrassing fashion on Tuesday night in Orlando.

Making things even worse is the fact that the Clipper blew a 3-1 series lead to Denver. They also blew big leads in Games 5 and 6 and then they were terrible in the second half of Game 7 and were never really in it in the fourth quarter.

Plus, Leonard and George were dreadful in Game 7, shooting a combined 10-of-38 for 24 points.

Just like that the Clippers are headed home, falling woefully short of the expectations that this team carried all season long.

Magic Johnson and the rest of Twitter crushed the Clippers for falling short and looking so bad in doing so:

The Clippers choked again. 🤦🏾‍♂️ They choked against Houston in 2015 and they choked tonight against the Denver Nuggets.

The Clippers have treated themselves like the champions all season, so I doubt they are going to be too affected by this embarrassing loss.

The Clippers played and acted all season like they were a group that had won something when only Kawhi had been there. They had no identity other than him. The fake bully act can only get you so far.

Did Gostkowski give Paul George a pep talk before the game? #NBAPlayoffs

This Clippers team is the Big Baller Brand of NBA teams. All hype, no delivery.

We waited for them to be great all year. Never happened. Folded up and quit up with a 3-1 lead in the playoffs.

The Lakers had the better No. 1. The Lakers had the better No. 2. The Lakers had the better record through the season. The Lakers had the better temperament through the season. And all year folks lauded and anointed the Clippers regardless of the signs.

Kawhi chose the Clippers over the Lakers last year

Pat Bev said they had the best squad in the city
