"Clippers got a documentary before they got a ring????" Big Dawg asked.

With the Sterling incident happening just in recent memory, some find it odd that the participants are still alive.

"The fact that every single one of the portrayed characters is alive is hilarious," said Spring Water Papi.

A few fans are puzzled about who is portraying Chris Paul. Some are not convinced that J. Alphonse Nicholson is the right choice to play CP3 in the docuseries.

"Cp3 from the dollar store," comments @Br0nToLA23
