After years of bickering and arguing with Laker fans who annoyed the hell out of me, I joined the clipper nation in 2002.

I am extremely excited for the Blake Griffin Era and the start of a new era in Clipper Basketball.

Should the Warriors have tried to trade for Baron? Would the Clippers have done the deal?

12

Interesting read, the writer speculates that the Warriors should have tried to trade for Baron at the deadline. He also believes that there package would have been better than what we received from Cleveland? Vlad Rad & Dan Gadzuric for Baron and the 2010 1st round pick I'm curious to hear your opinions. Would you rather have the expiring contracts of Vlad and and Dan or Mo Williams? I personally prefer Mo Williams, we still have plenty of cap space in the 2011 offseason, we need some talent on the roster rather than expiring deals.. Cap space is worthless if you are a bad team, we learned last yr you can have all the cap space and young talent in the world, but no big free agent will come to a team unless they are close to winning. In my opinion, making a run at Dwill, CP3, and Howard next season all hinges on the play of the team. Even with our young assets and cap space none of those guys will be interested if we are in the lottery again, making the playoffs is very crucial and Mo Williams gives us a better chance to make the playoffs than expiring contracts like Dan Gadz and Vlad Rad.

Bill Simmons Carmelo should pick the Clips

Adande and Simmons talk Clippers/Lakers

1

obviously there is more laker talk than clipper talk, but lots of high praise from BS and Adande, regarding Blake, EJ, and yes even some hope for us Baron supporters. "Clipper games are more exciting than Laker games." JA Adande Check it out.

Both L.A. Teams Six Games Back

Great piece by Hoopsworld on the state of the Lakers and Clips, we are only 6 games out, get well soon Kaman, we can make a run.

Andre takes out Blake

2

I already hated Andre Miller, but WOW. This is much worse than I initially thought. How did he only get one game and Cook 2? This is absolutely ridiculous. Much props to Blake for not going awol after the takedown, hopefully our short handed clips take it out on the Queens tonight. Clips play Portland on TNT, 1/20, can't wait. Hopefully we send some scrubs like Collins out there for retaliation.

Bill Simmons Pimping the Clipps

30

Simmons starts the column with his usual clipper bashing and rants, but follows it by saying Blake is a top 4 PF, the clipps could make the playoffs, Blake will win ROY, and that we are the 8th most intriguing team to watch. We are all excited for the season and it seems that our biggest critic also is on board.
