hahaha

 

I wouldn't say that.

Just a better situation to coach the warriors over next 5 years than Lakers.

No matter which team you root for.

 

Personally, Walton wasn't much better at winning than Byron.

Now we can make a case for intentional tanking by both which i think is accurate.

 

But Luke didn't impress me and its clear many fans gave him a pass for a miserable season when if it was anyone else....

Refs helped Utah win.

I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.

Blaming the refs is the first resort of the second rate.

Utah is a better TEAM and the entire team wants to win. The Clippers have Jordan and Paul who want to win alongside a team of guys who couldn't care less either way.

Love watching the Clippers lose, love it.

Jazz look like they are about to pull it out. IDK if their slow style and good defense will be able to hurt the warriors. However, its is possible they steal a game. Then again I am not sure how they will have the fire power to keep up. 


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Clippers continue being a joke.

Ha how can you say Utah and the refs when the jazz had two players foul out? Jazz were the better team and showed it. Chris Paul is so beast feel bad for him.

Doesn't matter who won anyways, Warriors waiting

Also was checking out the clipper sub on reddit and even their fans are saying CP3 should leave.

What happened to Bass? So Doc decided he had enough rebounding to bench the man? Brilliant!

If Paul and Blake decide to stay, they should shop DJ for a wing.

I blame Doc. Doc has made some head scratching bone head moves. Trading Bledsoe, signing Austin long term, and signing ex Celtics rejects. Not to mention ex Lakers scraps.

Nepotism and Favoritism are the philosophies behind his coaching success.

Chris Paul won't leave that money behind, no way, no how.  I think he's resigned to the fact that he won't win a ring in his career.  He would be leaving nearly 80 million on the table, that ain't gonna happen.  He likes L.A. and his family like it here too.  Chris Paul will sign the super max deal and be their first retired number.  Aside from that, he won't be winning anything else.

 

The Clippers should've traded Griffin two years ago (when I said to and everyone was freaking out on me about it).  now they're going to have a tough time selling a team on a high value for a player who can't make it through the playoffs.  I can see Griffin finding his way to OKC, provided they can make the room for him.  I would think there will be a lot of teams not on the cusp of winning looking to get him, but teams who are looking to get a name to fill seats.  The Knicks come to mind.

 

I can see Redick going, and soon after Crawford finding his way to greener pastures.  Rivers is going to have a tough time resisting Orlando if they throw him a monster deal.  Even if he stays he has to give up the GM position, he's terrible at it and it's distracting from coaching a team.  And then Jordan will come up[ in free agency too.  What to do with him now?  He's proven he is a decent tool to have on the toolbox but is he a super max kind of player.  He'll think he is, but will the Clippers be willing to spend 400 mil on him and Paul?  Yikes.

 

The Clippers are on the verge of complete collapse.  The thing is they could've avoided this by simply coming to terms with the flop that Griffin is years ago.  Had they traded him when he was higher in value, they would've gotten a king's ransom in return and set themselves up for years of winning and contending.

 

Oh well, it's the Clippers.  I'm glad to see them lose.  I'm glad to see them struggle and I'm glad that they're cute little run (or whatever you wanna call it) is all but over.

P.S. - Why in the world the Clippers didn't grab Carmelo for the scraps the Knicks were asking for is beyond me.  For that terrible non-move alone Rivers should be ousted from the front office.  That was Mitch & Jim-esque.

Disagree on most of this Fido.

I think Clippers disappointment was 80% injuries. 20% everything else.

Though i agree they might look completely different next season.

 

BTW, For sure Paul gets his jersey retired by them.

Also think Danny Manning and Elton Brand should have already had theirs retired, but clips for some reason didnt


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!!!
