    he's what makes the starters so good on defense though. team pretty much transformed itself last season once they inserted luc richard into the starting lineup. ended up at top 6 ortg/drtg with paul pierce's corpse taking blake's spot at starting PF, too.

    so put blake back in pierce for this season (and he was actually a pretty good defender to start last year before injury) then all of a sudden i think any improvements should not only be rational but also pretty substantial. and it seems that's where the team's at now, with a big bump in its ceiling.


    also if it were up to me i'd try to get wes johnson up to speed as the starter. or i would have gotten matt barnes back (who's balling in sacramento). or in hindsight tried harder to sign james ennis who inked with memphis for 2/6 and is the exact kind of player the clips would love as a starter. but it's pretty tough to complain about prince luc when he is such a great defensive glue guy. we'll see how much a weakness he is in the playoffs, though, when teams start leaving him completely wide open.

    that is i think where it is going to be a real problem. you can get away with a non-shooter in the regular season but in a 7 game series where Luc's defender is constantly crashing into the paint to stuff DJ's rolls to the rim or overloading the strong side whenever Blake is isoing it is finna be a much bigger problem

    everyone loves guys like Andre Roberson or Thabo Sefolosha or Tony Allen but it's been a while since a true offensive zero was starting on a championship team no matter how talented defensively. hell even Bruce Bowen developed a jump shot.

    oh man i know. dude's a fucking disaster on offense. has no sense of the cutting barnes had. can't shoot from wide open. bobbles pretty much every time he handles ball on perimeter.

    that said... clips have been masters of offense with that core 4 and pretty much anyone you put with them. they've been able to operate that way for years with razor thin spacing, so my hope is that when teams really put them to the test (a la warriors and tony allen) they'll know what to do.

    if there's one thing i'd be worried about, it'd be how much better the spurs will be on defense once he's back. that said, pretty sure there's no way you can make up for pau gasol/david lee as your big men defensive anchors.

    speaking of defense, holy shit clips up 62-32 on detroit at halftime. #1 DEFENSE IS REAL I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS BEFORE WITH THE CLIPPERS

    God must really hate the Anthony Davis. He already has to play for the Pelicans, and twice already they have to play the Warriors coming off a loss.

    i know it's early, but i think the clips are really good this season. possibly ring-level good, especially with maybe just one more trade.

    if they get there, how bad a fan am i if don't want them to win so i don't have to see them visit the white house lol

    I dunno how bad Portland is, but they're losing to the Clippers 50-18 with 7 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter

    clips are just dominant with their defense right now. and they've always had an elite offense, soooo ya, here we are!

    i know around here he's as hated as anyone but James Harden is playing the best basketball in the NBA right now. dropped a triple double to beat the Spurs at home, averaging 31-8-13, actually playing defense again.
