Great KA/ESPN Piece on the Evolution of Blake Griffin

Since it doesn't look like anyone else has posted this yet, I thought I'd do it here. Our old friend Kevin Arnovitz today filed a pretty lengthy piece on Blake Griffin, talking about the team's...

Is Eric Bledsoe in a George Hill Situation?

Reading this article by Zach Lowe, which looks back on the George Hill-for-Kawhi Leonard deal, I was struck by how similar the Spurs' situation was to the one we're in right now with Eric Bledsoe....

POLL: Who do you trust to make the best decisions?

Some people here feel like it's a mistake to give too much say to a star player -- letting the inmates run the asylum, as it were. Others think that a certain Point God is truly almighty. So let's...

Kevin Arnovitz's take on Vinny

Always love seeing KA's perspective on big Clippers news. Some good inside info here, as well as his usual keen analysis. It's not all Vinny love or Vinny bashing but a good honest look at his...

One for the Oldest-School Clippers fans

Click this link for a great article on the Clippers origins in San Diego. This perfectly describes why I fell for this team as a 9-year-old kid in 1978, and how the legacy of pain and heartbreak...

Grizz give away their bench

Instead of trading Gay or Randolph to get under the luxury-tax line, Memphis decides to see if it can win a title without a bench, handing Cleveland its best reserve big man and best reserve wing (the latter also the only halfway-decent deep threat they have besides Conley).

Three Reasons Why the Clips Are Better than OKC

I'm pretty sure the Mayans were right. We all died last week and now we're in Clippers Heaven. How else to explain the 14-game winning streak? Magic Johnson calling us the rightful heirs to...

No more Hollinger!

Everyone's least-favorite NBA columnist is leaving ESPN to take a front-office job with the Grizzlies. As a Clippers' fan, I can't help but view this as a two-fer. Not only does it mean that we're...

Kevin Arnovitz drops some truth on ESPN.com

Arash on the Clips-Lakers rivalry

1

Interesting piece. Best part is the quote from Vinny near the top. My respect for him just went up.

Even that D-bag Markazi thinks CP3 is gonna stay

37

Try as he might, Laker-loving ESPN Clippers beat writer Arash Markazi can't muster a cogent argument for Chris Paul leaving the team, and pretty much admits that, barring catastrophe, CP3 will be resigning with the Clips at the end of the season.

Kevin Love: "I Am Kind of Becoming a Huge D-Bag"

115

After his game-winning shot and subsequent look-at-me pose against the Clippers last year, some Citizens began expressing the opinion that Love was turning into a cocky jag, while others suggested that it was a normal celebration of a big-time play. I have been on the fence about Love -- until reading this. To me, talking about your team (and, by extension, your teammates) this way when a) the franchise seems to be headed in the right direction behind two young stars, and b) you just signed a four-year extension and have yet to play a single game since is totally out of line. Love's ego seems to be growing larger by the minute, and apparently spending the summer with the fellas on Team USA isn't helping matters any. Count me among the haters.

Great breakdown of Blake's game on Grantland

For those who can handle the truth, Jay Caspian King breaks down Blake's shortcomings on the offensive end. He may be our deity, but he's also still a work in progress...

Very interesting dissection of the Clippers by Hollinger

60

Some of it seems a little biased or outdated (the stuff about the D ignores the recent improvement, and his PER love makes him a bit too harsh on Reggie), but most of it (his assessments of the offense, the bench, and VDN) seems right on the money to me.

Paul and Mo both out today, but both will make the trip to Utah

1

Bummer, but perhaps slightly better news than expected, since it seems like we could possibly get one or the other back for the tougher game on the road.

Great take by KA on last night's game

2

It's nice to have Kevin back in the fold. Sounds like the team has the right attitude about this: Don't be satisfied with a sloppy 19-point win, but don't be disheartened either, especially when you consider how little of the playbook they've had a chance to install and how little they've gotten to play together so far to get a feel of each others' games.

J.J. Barea for $3MM per or thereabouts?
