Pouring a little salt in the wounds of the Haters…

I don’t hate the Lakers. I like their organization and how they’ve made a commitment to excellence and to winning championships. What I’ve grown to really dislike, however, is the attitude of...

Anyone think we should pursue Stephen Jackson?

Seems like Stephen Jackson has been relegated to the bench in Milwaukee. Maybe our front office can try to pick him up? He seems like the proud veteran type like KMart that will give more to a...

Hats Off to Clips FO for sticking with long term vision for the franchise

I don’t imagine any of us would be surprised if many fans around the league would laugh in scorn at the Clippers for passing up a deal that would have had CP3 in his prime dishing up lobs to...

Really believe that the league (owners of the N.O. Hornets) felt the team was worth more $$$ with Chris Paul than with the assets acquired in the attempted trade. Really believe that is the root cause for the trade Veto and that is the right of the "owner" to over-rule the GM. They would rather try o Sell the franchise with Paul as the centerpiece than with Scola, Martin, Odom, et al. No way the league steps in if it were a team other than the team they owned (New Orleans).

GRIZZLIES IMPLODE IN THE FOURTH AND LOSE 98-88

There are many parallels between our teams.  We each have crafty point guards in Davis and Tinsley.  Future superstar 2-guards in EJ and OJ.  Athletic SF’s in Thornton and Gay.  Talented centers in...

12-2 in November?

Is it just me, or does the whole of November seem like the easiest schedule we've ever seen?  2 meetings apiece against Minnesota, New Orleans, Oklahoma City?  3 meetings with Memphis?  The other...

Déjà vu

This is going to be fun…   I remember thinking that when we signed Baron Davis last summer…presumably to team-up with FElton Brand.  Too bad BD forgot to pack his game along with his...

TOO MANY CHIEFS, NOT ENOUGH INDIANS.

(This is really just a follow-up to my previous post, but it was getting long so I just did it here.)   When I made the point that no one can break into the line-up next season, it's because the...

Let's talk about the draft...

Sometimes what we want and what we need are two different things. What do we want?  We want the first pick in the coming draft . What do we need?  We need a HIGHLY skilled, athletic, physically...

Here we go again... more RANTINGS from me... (Sorry)

I've been thinking about the last few offseasons with this team and I have to say that each one had been better than the season itself.  The summer after the our playoff run, I remember picturing a...

A Few words to describe these Clippers...

UNWATCHABLE.  UNPROFESSIONAL.  SORRY.  WEAK WILLED.DISORGANIZED.  PATHETIC.  LACKING PRIDE.  DISGRACEFUL. One word that can not be used to describe these Clippers: TEAM. A fan, speaking for...

Just one humble vote for Dunleavy as GM

I actually do like Dunleavy as the GM.  In the perfect world, we'd have a Joe Dumars at GM and maybe a Flip Saunders for coach (I would have preferred Stan Van Gundy when he was available)...and...

Homegrown

The best free agents will NEVER sign with the Clippers. Perhaps FElton was the last best player to voluntarily sign with the team.  (BD doesn't count with all his primadonna-ness/moodiness).  As...

Los Angeles will be a Clipper town...

Did the players just prove MDSr right all along…?

All season long, MDSr draws up the plays and tries to convince his players that his way is the right way…but they’re just not buying it.  The players go through the motions and the Clipper offense...

Regrets and the 2004 draft

The plan is to rebuild while winning now... but it should be to stay healthy first.

With most of the 'best' Clipper players only in their upper 20's (Kaman, BDavis, and Randolph), our team could get away with trying to win now while starting to rebuild.  With any luck, we'll draft...
