Bench Willie Green!

I don't understand what this nonsense is about protecting the second unit by having Willie Green start (until Chauncey Billups returns). The depth chart is plenty deep to keep Willie Green on the...

What if the CP3 trade didn't happen...

Charles Barkley vs Blake Griffin vs Karl Malone

18

Not sure if you caught Charles Barkley trashing Blake Griffin's game the other day, but it was pretty harsh. Anyways, just took the moment this morning to check their stats side-by-side in their 2nd season - thought you all might be interested....I threw in Karl Malone too. The main takeaway is that Blake Griffin is being compared to hall of famers...this is a good thing.

DJ's trade value

This post isn't about wanting or lobbying to get rid of DeAndre or anything, but merely an intellectual exercise that I'm sure every GM has to do with their roster. We know that Golden State did...

Bogut to miss 'a few more games'

Oh well, looks like this saturday's game against the Bucks could get ugly quick if they don't have their best post man playing. With that said, Jennings, Beno and SJax could light up the Clippers and make things fun.

It's probably way too early to start thinking about 5-man units, but for some reason I've been staring at this roster, trying to imagine different combinations. PG: Mo, Bledsoe, Warren SG: EJ,...

Clippers improvement (pythag wins)

A whopping 3 win improvement from last season is not what most of us were expecting (hoping for).  From the pythagorean wins perspective, the season in review looks like this:

also, BDL article by Kelly Dwyer I'm shocked by this news. Jerry Sloan stepping down!? Sure, they lost 10 of their last 14... Anyways, it looks like more power teams from the West are showing cracks: Blazers, Lakers, Suns and now the Jazz. Spurs are awesome right now, but for how much longer? Same goes for Mavs with Dirk/Kidd?

Throw in draft picks + Kaman/Butler/Warren...

Should the Clippers trade Kaman for Love?

62

My initial reaction is no - not unless he can guard the 5...anyone know? However there are some very intriguing talents he can bring on the offensive end: 1) active rebounder on both ends (on par or better than Griffin), 2) stretch-5 who can play high/low with Griffin, 3) one of the best outlet passers in the game that would help trigger the Clippers transition offense. UPDATE: if the Clippers made this trade they would save $8M and have $11.8M total cap space.

Scoring improvement...?

Through 4 games now, the Clippers are the worst scoring team in the league at 87.5 ppg.  It should definitely hopefully get better - here's a breakdown of Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman and Blake Griffin'...
