DJ quickly rising among Clippers all-time great centers

Benoit Benjamin and Ike Austin are in sight, and he's approaching Elmore Smith and the great Sven Nater (hooray for Holland!) Link On the other end of the spectrum, Ryan Hollins has his work...

Rockets waive Livingston

3

First Jaric, then Livingston gets waived. What's next? Jeff McInnis and Rick Brunson get cut from their rec-league squads? Note to Gary Sacks: Waive Travis Leslie (or trade him to the Bobcats for a can of Pringles) and sign Livingston to the 15th roster spot.

Jaric on the bulls?!?!?!

1

Incredibly off-topic, but i just watched yeterday's top 10 plays. I noticed a familiar face on the bench for the Bulls. Turns out Marko Jaric is on the Bulls (preseason?) roster. Go figure...

Clipper Trivia

2

If you'd rank current players 6'4 and taller. How many current Clippers would be in the top 25 in assists per game for their career?

Rockets Waive Terrence Williams

19

Should we sign him (waive Bobby Simmons)? Or does he duplicate what Nick Young will give the Clippers?

Is a trade like this legal

The Clippers probably won't (and shouldn't!) include the Minny pick unless CP3 agrees to an extention or commits (verbally, non binding, but he and his agent would be total jackasses if the spurned...

Blake dunks over a car. Korolev dunks over his girlfriend

3

Former Clipper draft steal Korolev (AKA Mike Dunleavy Junior Junior) dunks over his 5'2 girlfriend in 2010 ACB Slam Dunk contest. Skip to about 6:30. Oh by the way. The Clipper Curse has long lasting effects: Yarik tore his ACL a couple of months ago...

Great geographic knowledge by nba.com...

Being from "europe" (I don't speak European though) this is a bit of pet peeve of mine. The article about the similarities between Vesely and Kirilenko states that "ironically" "The comparisons are many. They are from the same region; Vesely a native of the Czech Republic and Kirilenko of Russia.". That struck me as a bit odd so I checked on Google Earth. It turns out the distance between Kirilenko's and Vesely's hometowns is about 840 miles. Imagine Eric Bledsoe being compared to Stephon Marbury since the grew up in the same area (after all Birmingham, Alabamba is only 860 miles from Booklyn)...

Bledsoe compared to Mookie as a Rookie

15

Look at their Mookie Rookie numbers (per 36mins). Both are the same size, play the same type of game. Mookie scored more, but that's because he was on such a crappy team (Sam Bowie, Joe Barry Carroll and the last year of the Rick Carlisle era). Mookie turned out to be a solid player (6 time all-defense)

DJ has a skills academy

6
"The DeAndre Jordan Skills Academy strives to teach children the fundamentals they will need to reach the highest levels of basketball" Does anyone else find it hilariously funny DJ had his own basketball camp? Okay kids, first up Dunking the basketball really hard. Next up, trick shots (but not from the foul line)

Grizzly

Very off-topic, but how dysfunctional is the front-office of the Grizzlies? I know the Clippers don't have the best track record, but come on... They draft Hasheem Thabeet 2nd overall, knowing he's...

Griffin is "B.A.M!"

1

I know we're all tired of Griffin nickname threads, but I think this one is too good to keep to myself: B.A.M. 2 years ago, Griffin was a man among boys at Oklahoma. Now, he's in the NBA, he's a Beast Among Men. Thoughts?

Kyle Montgomery is brilliant

I wanted to post this a few days ago and didn't, but Kyle Montgomery made me regret it in last night's top plays. A few days ago he had a great line on Jrue Holliday's awkward And-one (#9 in the...

Bledsoe 3rd on the team in fg%

+

5 days ago I posted the same link and title. It was a sarcastic post and I said: Too bad he's at 43%. Now he's still 3rd, but at 54%. How does that rank on the mojo-meter?

Looking back on the 98 draft (posted Thu June 25, 1998)

Hilarious in hindsight. And the Clippers aren't mocked for taking Olowokandi at all.

Sofo's blocks

Last year in the Greek league Sofo had 1 block per 36 minutes and in Euroleague 1 per 79 minutes. I've seen some of Olympiacos' games and to me Sofo was more of a clogger than a blocker, never...

Sofo is one big sweaty dude! Either that or he was very scared to play against Blake and DJ.

Kaman for Iggy and Sam Dalembert

I realy like kaman, but so do a lot of teams. The Clippers could use him as a trading chip to avoid a free-agent letdown. For example to trade him for Andre Iguadala and Samuel Dalembert. Iggy was...

Mike Uncleanly?

I hope they don't fix this article. It says: "Los Angeles owner Donald Sterling entertained the idea after Brown inquired through intermediaries about succeeding Mike Uncleanly as coach and general manager, sources confirmed."

Losing respect for NBA writers...

As clipper fans we're all used to the constant jokes of NBA writers. The Blake Griffin injury just gives them some new fuel. I can deal with most of those jokes (some are even funny. Bill Simmons...

Get AzuGLUEke

I almost forgot it, but the Clippers had a pretty decent 'glue guy' signed last year in Kelenna Azubuike, before the W's matched his contract. If we want to bring him in (this time for real), and...
