The Rush: Clippers spoil ring night, Brooklyn looks primed on NBA opening night

On opening night of the NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Los Angeles Clippers after receiving their championship rings in a pre-game ceremony, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving had monster games as the Brooklyn Nets blew out the Golden State Warriors, James Harden nearly got into a physical altercation with a Houston Rockets teammate, and the Washington Football Team had a pretty bad day, even by their standards. PLUS: James Harden finally passes, Ben Simmons shouldn’t get comfortable, and perhaps Dan Snyder should rebrand as Football Team Owner.
