Default Re: ISH's FIVE QUESTIONS: Los Angeles Clippers Edition

1. TRUE or FALSE: This is the year Blake Griffin steps up and plays up to his hype.
False. He'll be good for 20/10, but as long as he's not the team's primary option, he won't make much noise beyond spectacular dunks.

2. On a suckage scale of 1 to 10...(1 being just run of the mill sucking, 10 being the suckiest player that ever sucked), how much does DeAndsuck Jordan suck? And can Doc Rivers help Jordan reduce his suckage at least to a reasonable suckage level?
Maybe a 5. I'd say he's an average player with tremendous height, wingspan and size. He's good for a few dunks per night, and possibly a handful of blocks. I say Doc's coaching staff can help him become a more effective defender because there's really nobody who can help DJ's offense, unless Hakeem is still available to work with non-Rockets' Cs and the Clippers allow DJ to skip most of the season to train on his post moves.

3. TRUE or FALSE: Despite Redick's and Dudley's positive offensive impact and high bball IQ's, those positives will be negated by their poor defense.
True. Offensively nice, but definite defensive liabilities.

4. The one thing Doc Rivers can do that Vinny Del African-American couldn't is.....

Keep a job after winning 50+ games.

5. Will the Clippers get themselves together and actually do damage this season?

Most likely, yeah. But can CP3 get to the WCF? That's the true question.
