Man, what a rollercoaster for the Clippers this season! Lawrence Frank, the Clippers' top brass, spilled the beans in his end-of-season chat with the media. One of the juicy bits? Ivica Zubac is in for a big summer. After smashing his personal bests, Zubac's gearing up for some serious contract talks.

This towering 7-footer didn't just hang around the hoop; he crushed it with averages that soared to new heights: 11.7 points and grabbing 9.2 rebounds a game, not to mention swatting away 1.2 shots each outing. But it wasn't just the regular season where Zubac shone. Remember that gritty Game 6 against the Mavericks? Even with Kawhi Leonard sidelined, Zubac stepped up big time, dropping 17 points and hauling in 11 rebounds. Though they lost 114-101, Zubac's hustle was undeniable. He wrapped up the playoffs flaunting three double-doubles in six games and kept his shooting crisp, hitting a solid 60 percent from the floor.

It's not just about the numbers, though. Zubac has that understated style — not the flashiest or the most athletic big man out there, but boy, does he deliver when it counts. With one more year left on his $32.8 million deal, he's set to earn $11.7 million next season. Clippers fans, get ready; we're in for more Zubaction!
