Re: Clippers are stacked this year. No excuses for them at all
Just to see more clearly how stacked they are, below what I assume is the projected lineup:
PG: CP3, Crawford, Rivers, Prigioni
SG: Reddick, Stephenson
SF: Pierce, Wesley Johnson
PF: Griffin, JSmoove
C: DJ, Aldrich
Actually, I agree that's a very good roster. I wouldn't give them the nod to win it all though. I personally have the Warriors, Thunder and probably the Spurs over them in the West. Unless CP3 is miraculously playing like the MVP runner up he once was (won't happen) or Griffin somehow steps up and plays like an MVP (I'm a fan, but I'd say unlikely).
The other thing that I'd be worried about is big men depth. Aldrich and inconsistent Smith the only backups? Where's big baby? Griffin and DJ better stay healthy all year...
*Edit: damn, I just realized they let go Ekpe Udoh and Spencer Hawes too, both better than Aldrich imo. Could've sacrificed one of those guards (Prigioni?) for another big (Udoh?).
