And some stuff to get you hyped for Clippers 2012-13!
"When you're trying to compare and get better — and we want to try and win the Western Conference and have a chance to play for the whole thing — you compare yourself to the Western Conference champ, and that's not the Lakers." --- Chauncey "Mr. Big Shot" Billups
"I wish the Lakers nothing but luck. I still have friends over there. When we’re on the court, they’re the enemy now." --- Matt Barnes
"I think we can be very good. I think we can contend in the West and for a championship."... "It's great [for the Lakers when they acquired Dwight Howard], but just like people said when we got 'CP,' they've still got to play — just like we did. It's a great acquisition for them. That makes them even tougher. But I think we got tougher as well." --- Blake Griffin
"I cannot wait to play the game with my improved team. I. Can. Not. Wait." --- Chris Paul
Shaq: "I’m going on the record right now, best center in the West right now, DeAndre Jordan. Best center in the West."
Magic: "I thought I would never, ever see Showtime again. And I was the architect of Showtime. The Clippers? That's showtime."

Spoke to a source in Orlando, who says that the Magic feel that trading Dwight Howard now would be shortsighted. "All the teams in it now will be in it later. Waiting could allow another team or two to talk themselves into pursuing Howard. His value is his value and will not be diminished if traded right before or during the season." Impression I get from Magic source is that Howard not likely going to be dealt right now. Media is putting a timer on this. Orlando GM Rob Hennigan will not settle in any Howard trade. Waiting could buy the Clippers time to considering pursuing Dwight. Magic are said to be very high on potential packages from LA.https://twitter.com/Probballdraft/status/230404047960694784 https://twitter.com/Probballdraft/status/230404966970425344 @ProBballDraft is credible.
Comment of the day: I think someone must have stolen DTS checkbook. He is probably calling the bank right now to cancel the check screaming "I do not even know a Willie Green!" Woooooooooo! ...
Here is the schedule. Made these predictions while I was on vacation last week, on the paper schedule I printed from the hotel printer. Now I'm back, and decided to post this. Also, note that this...
