Chris Paul, Chauncey Billups could be Olympic candidates
 
Is it possible that the Clippers could have three players on the U.S. Olympic basketball team?

Well, yes, it's possible that Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and Chauncey Billups all could represent the United States in the Olympics in London this summer.

Paul said he has been in contact with Jerry Colangelo, director of USA Basketball, and that he hopes to be on the Olympic basketball team for the second time.

Griffin said he was told by his agent that Colangelo wanted to speak with him about being a candidate to try out for the team. Griffin said he planned to call Colangelo this week to express his interest.

Billups said his agent talked with Colangelo.

This is exactly what i was gonna post. Weve seen too often how a lot of time and energy gets wasted when players get hurt. The Clippers are building something special and it would be a shame to watch it regress due to their playing being on the Olympic team. Too much misfortune has befallen this franchise for them to risk any of their players.
