Griffin shows range up to 15 feet out, hes not consistently hitting them but he shows the ability to do so.

Griffin would turn into the best player in the league within 4 years if drafted by any other team. Olowokandi would've been way better than KG or Duncan but....Clippers are cursed. You could replace them with the Olympic team and they'd go .500.

Pretty much. I mean, even before Griffin, this is a team that looks pretty good on paper

Baron
Eric Gordon
Thorton
Zach Randolph
Kaman/Camby

with Deandre Jordan and Steve Novak coming off the bench. That's a team that should be good for at least 45 wins, but because of the Clipper Curse or whatever, they win 19 games. I don't get it. Their young guys are good, but they seem to have a knack for acquiring flawed players who can excel in the right system, but then not playing the kind of system they'd excel in.

Does anyone really think Griffin can succeed with Dunleavy coaching? Honest question, I'm not entirely convinced he can.

Will they get a new coach? It seems like Sterling has been more concerned about $$ than putting the team in a position to win, and I'm not sure that will change after he shelled out money for last year's team. Plus the economy can't be helping.

So really, I'm concerned that Dunleavy is going to be coaching Griffin until his contract runs out and will keep with his philosophy of just exploiting mis-matches and slow tempo. I'm not sure either will really help Griffin at this young age. He needs to run.

I could be wrong though, just wondering what everyone else thinks...

The Clippers aren't going to get a new coach this year because of how much contract Dunleavy has left, so either one of two things can happen:

Either the Clippers have a good season this year and contend/qualify for a playoff spot, and Dunleavy keeps his job (which would be acceptable if they actually have success)....

Or, the Clippers have another disastrous season, and Sterling has absolutely no choice but to can Dunleavy and hire new blood.


So really this is the season where something has to give. Either we have success or we get a new coach. Frankly we are at a point where that itself is a win-win scenario.

David Stern: We have a trade. The Los Angeles Clippers trade the number one overall pick to the San Antonio Spurs for Matt Bonner.

Seriously, I'm waiting for the Clippers to **** this up.

I have not read all the posts in this thread but count me in for the "this sucks" category. The playoffs have been mostly boring since the Celtics/Bulls series and although this is a weak draft, I was looking forward to the lottery and seeing what team would get Griffin.

I am sorry but I don't like the Clippers at all. I don't understand why anyone else would like them either. They are one of the most painful teams to watch despite all that damn talent doing nothing each season.

The owner of the team does not care about winning, so why should I care about his team? The Clippers are so fortunate to be in L.A. and piggy-backing the Lakers; they are able to survive like cockroaches after a nuclear war.

There are so many other more deserving teams that could have used the shot in the arm that Griffin would have provided...it's just sad. Some of those teams are nearly dying because of the financial aspects of running a team that is not located in a major-market. Griffin could have done so much for the Kings, Pacers, Grizzlies, Thunder, etc.

I was really looking forward to watching this kid play next season, but now? Who cares. And what the hell are they going to do with Thug Randolph now? Will Blake come off the bench? F#%k the clippers.

Blake Griffin is ****ed, unless they make a trade.

Zach Bo, Kaman, Camby downlow all need 30 minutes each, that leaves nothing for Griffin, one of those is a must trade.

BD
EG
Thornton
Griffin
Camby

Kaman off bench

trade Zbo for whatever

Lol, you have no ****ing idea what you're talking about.

I can see minor similarities, but overall a poor comparison. Beasley is far more athletic and a more natural scorer. I see much more potential defensively with Beasley, and you can't even mention them in the same sentence at the same age.

People need to realise that Beasley would have averaged 20 and 8 given 35 minutes a night. He is a special offensive talent.

the Heat organisation are developing him into a winning ball player, a luxury Jamison didnt get at GSW.
