Pictured alongside decent wool in the streets, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are an elite duo on the hardwood.

After battling knee, thigh and hand injuries throughout the springtime, Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul says he’s now completely healthy and excited for the 2013-2014 campaign.

Signing a five-year contract worth $107.3 million on July 10, the 28-year-old Paul is destined to thrive this winter in “La-La Land.”

Reportedly thrilled with Doc Rivers’ arrival, Paul and the Clippers can compete with any team and Los Angeles will have a legitimate opportunity to represent the Western Conference in next June’s finals.

Averaging 18.6 points, 9.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds since debuting with the New Orleans Hornets in 2005, the former Demon Deacon is arguably the preeminent floor general in the association.

With Rivers overseeing a talented squad that finished 56-26, Paul, Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick should mature into an extremely formidable trio on the hardwood.

As the Lakers continue to gray and descend, Chris Paul will help ensure the Clippers aren’t Tinseltown’s version of red-headed stepchildren.
