If Chauncey already looks that great and isn't even 100 percent people are about to be eating crow for saying he's done and downplaying how good he can be for another couple years. He claims he's in the best shape of his life cardio/strength wise. He looked RIPPED when I saw a video last month.

People like to exaggerate all Clippers injuries though. CP3 will be back before season even starts, Billups will be back probably 3 weeks after the season starts. Clippers will be 100 percent by the start of December most likely.

The Heat vs Clippers preseason games is gonna be less entertaining without CP3, Billups and Blake.

didn't even think of that! Clippers vs Nuggets is also going to be the first NBA preseason on the Vegas strip ever and the players will be out. Oh well.. Bledsoe+Odom+Crawford+DJ should still put on a show.

In Kobe's case the ligament had already torn off, so there was no more damage to be done, just pain to deal with. He was basically told he could fix it now and miss important games or just leave it like that forever. Or if you listen to the haters it was a light sprain and he was playing it up.

Because it's a more precise measurement of time.

And with babies, there's a lot of development that goes on within the first 2 years, so doctors and parents like to keep track of with more precise age markers like months instead of years. It's like when a woman is pregnant, doctors will measure it in weeks and not months since it's easier to track the development when you're more precise.

No big deal. He's fine and will just recuperate during this off season and be ready for training camp just like everyone else. Nothing serious. Carry on.

if he's out for 8 weeks that means he'll miss most of training camp, which is quite a problem in developing chemistry overall. this isn't like kyrie irving missing time (he'll be closer to recovery btw). irving is more an individual movement....sure, they want him to gain chemistry but i think most fans know what cp3 is capable of. it's overall chemistry they're looking for.

umm, because it's more accurate. 1 month ≠ 4 weeks, so that's why people say that, because there are many idiots like you two. 1 month = 4.35 weeks.

with regards to the baby age in years, do you really want me to explain this as well? i'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume i will have to. again, more accurate. you want to know only the age in years? so if the baby's somewhere between 1 and 2 years of age, you want them to say 1.66 years (for instance)? lol ok. or ommit the decimals and use fractions? lol. "she's one and two/thirds years old."



or just round up/down? ridiculous. stick to basketball discussions, kids.

Team says he'll be good for training camp. Why would you doubt them?

reports are that he'll be out for 8 weeks.

8 weeks from now = late october and just in time for preseason games.

late october = most of training camp is over with.

8 weeks is also probably optimistic. i remember when he had the groin injury and was supposed to miss a game or two. it ended up being like seven.
