Default Chris Kaman

Last 4 games:

13.75 points/7.5 boards/2.25 assists on 31% FG

Is Kaman just in a temporary slump or is he finally coming back down to earth from his tremendous start?

He is coming down... his 15/13/3 season was a fluke where he got lots of ball time too. The Clips should be shopping him after this start he has had cuz I for one will be shocked if he can maintain it... his BBall IQ is horrible and they have a lot better options on the floor, not to mention, Griffin hasn't even played regular season yet.

Yeah, but who do they rotate at that center position? Camby and DeAndre? Camby is far too old to take on big minutes..and Jordan is just,....eh.

Missing Gordon has a HUGE part of that since teams are now more easily shadowing/doubling Kaman since 'Sual forgot how to shoot and we all know how inconsistent Al & Baron are from distance. Once Gordon comes back and starts playing regular minutes, Kaman's stats should go up to about 18/9. I don't expect him to grab as many boards because Camby is a ballhawk (he takes about 1-3 rebounds a game away from Chris, its kinda funny).

Why would we shop him around? How many legit 7 foot centers are there? Deal him for Dalemburt? Right. And who is a better option? Thornton and Baron are inconsistent. Camby is a liablity on offense AT TIMES, Baron is Baron. Like I already mentioned, no Gordon really hurts.

Camby's still playing around 30 minutes a night, but he's too much of a liability on the offensive side of the ball. Last 2 games, he grabbed 18 and 21 boards.

Jordan is too raw, I still can't believe he is just 21 years old. Truly believe that if he works the hardest he could, 5-9 years from now, he could be in the discussion for top 7 centers in the league. But how many young guys come in the league with crazy athleticism and talent, but don't have the ethic. Hope it's the former for Jordan.
