Default Re: Clippers 5-0 against contenders so far...

The Clippers will implode sometime during the season. They always do. I know it's supposed to be a new team wah wah wah but until they don't fall apart I'll side with history that says the Clippers will find a way to screw it all up. The roster alone is one big medical emergency waiting to happen

What's really impressive is that I haven't seen them play near their potential yet - the front line seems like its in its infant stages. These guys can win it all.

unexpected big praise. I think that's the key here is that our young core of Bledsoe, DJ and Griffin still has a long ways to go and the team still isn't gelled. Plus still short two key rotation players including starting SG.

Last time, Billups injury got them out of sync. They still made some nice trades and got some nice pieces going to the playoffs. So, no excuses on their part.

This year, assuming if everybody is healthy, they are pretty legit and scary to face. Their bench is pretty deep, and probably the best bench in the game even without Hill and Billups. And DJ improved a lot. Their defense improved too. They are better than last year.

Ok.. Like I said wake me when it's over. Everything you just said has been said every year for the last 30 years.

People said the same thing last year though and despite being severely shorthanded they beat the team they were supposedly going to get crushed by (Memphis) to get to the second round. Adding a top 5 player to your team and tons of other good pieces kinda changes things no?

With the Grizzlies losing to the Nuggets, the Clippers are #1 in the west(they own the tie-breaker to Memphis). As much as I'd love a Clippers Heat finals, I'd much rather see the Clippers and Knicks.

Griffin and Jordan suck. They will go as far as CP3 takes them. Which is at this point probably second round.

I still can't get over the losses to the Cavs and Warriors.
Both were home games for LA. No excuses.

Although the Cavs were making everything that night.


Go Clips!

what they've done is eye popping but given their history you have to see it in the postseason

also it's too early to say anything remotely definitive.. teams like memphis and milwaukee are at the top of the league
