I've always said this, that all Zach ever needed was clear team captains so that he wouldn't have to lead. When Zach doesn't have to lead, he thrives. In the early years in Portland, Zach was a hard worker, who went to summer league even when he wasn't required to.

When Rasheed and all the vets were traded from Portland, that's when he started to fall off. But now that he's in the Clipps with Baron and Camby as clear cut leaders, he just has to worry about balling.

True that.

I'm so happy we did that trade. Zach Randolph for Tim Thomas, and we saved Mobley's life.

Waitup hold on.. Zach Randolph for Tim Thomas? WTF? Hahahaha.

Eric Gordon's defense is blowing my mind.

He's 19 years old folks. 19!!

You know that your frontcourt sucks when you let Camby drop a 20/20 performance on you.

Marcus Camby fumes at officials for not calling a foul on Andres Nocioni, who drew a key charging foul on Zach Randolph with 51 seconds to play in overtime.
By KC Johnson
December 18, 2008
Reporting from Chicago -- As Marcus Camby slowly walked off the United Center court Wednesday night, he glanced behind him, staring at a trail of errors, both mental and, the Clippers believe, otherwise.

Griping about officiating won't do anything to change the Chicago Bulls' 115-109 overtime victory, which ended the Clippers' winning streak at three games. So Camby, sitting in front of his locker, directed his angst at something safer.


"It's frustrating because everybody in the league knows what he does; he flops," said Camby, who had a career-high 27 rebounds. "But he got the benefit of the call.

"We have to take this one on the chin and try to regroup because we've got two more games left on this trip."

The "he" was forward Andres Nocioni, who drew a key offensive foul on Zach Randolph with the Clippers trailing, 110-109, with 51 seconds to play in overtime.

Randolph, who led all scorers with 30 points, protested the call, and again after rookie Derrick Rose scored on a conventional three-point play on the ensuing Bulls possession.

Then again, Randolph's histrionics had little on Clippers Coach Mike Dunleavy, who fumed when officials reversed a call that originally sent Al Thornton to the free-throw line to another offensive foul on Randolph.

That call came with the Clippers leading, 109-108, in overtime with 1 minute 53 seconds to go.

"We saw some wild calls," Dunleavy said. "I can't see it from where I was sitting on the play at all, but clearly an unusual play for us again.

"I'm sure the league will review it and we'll question them and we'll see what they say about them. They'll give us their judgments. Nobody wants to make a bad call."

Then again, none of this happens if Eric Gordon doesn't foul guard Ben Gordon on a three-point shot at the end of regulation.

"That's just a mental error you can't have," Dunleavy said.

Ben Gordon somehow made the double-pump three-point shot, then calmly made the free throw with 20.5 seconds left to tie the score, 106-106. Then came another Clippers mental lapse: On the final shot of regulation, Thornton threw one up from 19 feet.

"The play was for Randolph," Dunleavy said. "He'd been killing them every time down the floor. Al just slashed in and got the ball. Yeah, he shot a good shot; the ball was in and out. But the guy who had the hot hand for us was the guy we wanted to go to."

And so it went, as the Clippers scored the first three points of overtime, but not in the final 3:38.

"We had them, man," guard Baron Davis said. "We executed well. We just gave it away at the end."

<_< You know refs screwed up when MARCUS CAMBY complained to the media. Marcus Camby isn't usually the one to complain.

The Bobcats beat the Bulls with flopping, and the Bulls copied on their next game.
The flops are ruining the games...

Won in a double ot thriller, Randolph is putting up 20/10 easily that should get him some all star recognition. Tonight 34 pts 16 rebs.
