I'm busting my butt trying to remember which clippers have had their jersey retired?

Clipper "stars" are defined a little differently.  Ron Harper spoke of getting out of jail.  Benoit Benjamin ate a hot dog on the bench once.  Baron Davis swapped racial slurs with the owner during a game.

Probably not.  But we can also assume that Paul and Reddick wont shoot 30% most games.


We can also assume if healthy that Sacre won't get any minutes most games.

And we can also assume that Kobe Bryant would attack the basket more often than not and have more than 21 points.

 

Or that we won't miss the amount of free throws that we did.

My point was that all other things being equal, which they effectively were, we had a couple of guys that performed better than usual which made the game close.  If everyone plays "average", on a give night, we lose to the Clipps by 20.

 

Our FT% after 3 games is 78%, we were a little under that (71%) last night.  So maybe we make one more.

 

Kobe is averaging 40% from the field.  Last night he shot ... 40%.  He was a couple points off his average PPG.  Hill was way over, others were too.  Granted, its a small sample size, but not inconsistent with what we know they can do anyway.

 

So, even on a statistically "good" night for several guys, we are at best competitive with the league's best.

No arguing that.

 

And that is fine by me. I want us to be competitive. and I understand we suck. Hate getting blown out.

I'd be fine with Kobe playing a bit below expectations and other guys playing way above them.

That would be surprising to me


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!
