This should be interesting. I think I give it to Clippers in 7. Memphis has too much to fight for from the Clippers beating them last season and I just don't see CP3 getting knocked out in the first round with a team like his.

 

Is it too late to add polls to this?

 

Like Clips Sweep, Clips in 5, 6, etc (and vice versa for Griz)?

I really think they're gonna' miss Rudy Gay, especially at the end of close games. Say what you will about his consistency or rather lack thereof, but the guy was a decent to solid go-to-guy who could create his own shot and also had shown the ability several times throughout his career to rise up in clutch moments.

 

Tayshaun is still solid to some extent on both ends, but make no mistake about it, he is clearly not what he once was at the peak of his prime nor is he anything of a Rudy Gay, especially offensively.

Grizzlies have the superior D, if they can find consistent O from Zbo and company they can take this.

I'm interested to see how the Clippers respond to being a favorite in this series. 

 

Would not surprise one bit if the Clippers flopped and got bounced in the first round. 

 

Will be a good series though, these teams know each other all too well.

Put Tony Allen on CP3 and its over. Grizzlies in five. CP3 leaves the Clips in the summer and that scrub franchise goes back to shining big brother's boots.

Griz of course. Tony Allen wasn't healthy and couldn't bother Chris Paul at all last playoff series, and that all changes this series.

Caron Butler Takes Offense To Charles Barkley Calling The Clippers Soft:

 

http://blacksportson...ap-in-the-face/

 

Barkley, who is an analyst on TNT’s “Inside the NBA,” has said on many occasions that he doesn’t see the Los Angeles Clippers as true title contenders because they have “no toughness.”

 

Well, Los Angeles Clippers forward Caron Butler, didn’t take too kindly to the Hall of Famer’s comments but understands that it’s a part of Barkley’s shtick to say outrageous things according to the Jim Rome Show.

 

“To hear that, that was a slap in the face,” said Butler.

 

“It was shock television,” said Butler. “Everybody is looking for the shock television and he (Barkley) said that was something on his mind and on his heart.”

Griz in 6, hopefully Z-Bo goes off and hope their bigs don't fall for Griffin/CP3's flops.
