Man you really have little faith in your team. You heard it from me first, the Warriors are going to be in playoff running, even with losing B Davis and Ellis for ~20 games. I really expect them to hover around the 10th spot in the West with about 40 wins. People will be surprised to see Jackson and Maggette combining for 40+ points a night.

To say they should tank when they're still atleast near .500 is stupid.

Livingston was definitely not borderline bust at 9+ points 5+ assists.

Livingston was nowhere close to a bust when he got hurt. He was progressing like they wanted him to and was obviously headed in the right direction.

If Livingston can come back healthy he'll be a 20 points, 10 assists guy easy. He'll be competing with Paul and Williams for the title of best PG in the league. Guy looked awesome before the injury.

Even before that horrific injury last time, Livingston had knee problems before right?

I've watched almost every Clippers game the last 5 years. It was becoming apparent before the injury that after 3 years with the Clips, Livingston wasn't going to cut it as a starting PG or SG.

Before the injury I could see him being a solid backup PG / Combo Gaurd. After the injury? He's just a liability unless you can get him for real cheap.

Roster numbers grow
August 27th, 2008, 5:34 pm Post a Comment posted by ART THOMPSON III, OCREGISTER.COM

The Lakers’ signing Wednesday of their second-round draft pick, Joe Crawford, brings the number of players now under contract to 16.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak has stated that the plan is to bring 18 players to training camp, which begins Sept. 30, at the Lakers’ regular-season El Segundo practice facility.

With two spots still to fill, it is not too late for the Lakers to strongly consider bringing in unrestricted free agent guard Shaun Livingston, who has been rounding into training camp shape at Tim Grover’s Attack Athletics training facility in Chicago.

If Livingston indeed will be healthy enough to play this season - as Grover vowed to me last week he would - then Livingston would be a asset to whichever NBA team signs him.

In the case of the Lakers, they have no one on their roster with the playmaking ability and court vision that Livingston possesses.

And consider this. Yes, really consider this.

Subtracting this past season, which Livingston missed entirely, to rehabilitate his surgically-repaired left knee, he still has three NBA seasons under his belt.

Yet, at the age of 22, he is two years younger than Coby Karl, who was a rookie last season, 18 months younger than four-year veteran Sasha Vujacic and three years younger than Dwayne Mitchell, who was signed this summer as a rookie free agent.

Livingston is just nine months older than the rookie Crawford, 14 months older than two-year man Jordan Farmar and two months older than the Lakers’ second-round pick of last year, Sun Yue, who recently was signed to a contract.

Boykins and Pargo both signed overseas. Stoudamire didn't contribute much behind Tony Parker, don't think he will do much for GS either.

Funny thing with Livingston is that his stock managed to stay relatively stable not despite of, but because of his injuries. He didn't have the time Tim Thomas had to make it clear he's a waste of talent yet, so most people still believe in him.

Ok, the TT comparison might've been a bit harsh.
