He will be indeed... I really like watching the kid play, but between Lakers games and other stuff I don't have time watching the Cavs play, was hoping to be able to kill two birds with one stone... Oh well...

Kyrie will be restricted. Which means Cleveland will match anything and everything he is offered. No shot at all he is leaving Cleveland. At least not in the foreseeable future. He'll be extended before that time comes anyway.

The Clippers are dismantling the Grizzlies without CP3.
Memphis is playing without Rudy as well which IMO wouldn't make a difference....

This Clippers team is really damn good.
1-12 their solid and their team chemistry with one another is very championship like.
Barring major injury to the main 8-10 players,
I do not see any team beating them in 7 games.

The Heat and Thunder are their main threats but once you compare their benches the
advantage goes heavily to the Clippers.

I have once stated that a fear of mines was to see a Clipper championship banner being raised next to our 16 Gold Banners. Ugggh...
I'm starting to come to peace with this possible conclusion. :roll:
The Clippers nation has gone to Hell and back and to Hell and back again.
This is by far the greatest Clippers team ever and this could be the greatest Clippers season ever as well.

I dont like the Clippers, but if i have to choose between the Heat and the clippers I would rather the Clippers win.

I don't know. I think I would almost rather see the Heat win. I never imagined the day that the Clippers would be contenders and now its happening. I don't like it one bit. After seeing Lebron win one ring I'm more open to seeing the Heat win another championship.

Yeah, Clippers must lose at all costs... Don't want Sterling, CP3, Barnes, Billups, LO, or Blake to win a ring in LA with that Org...

I respect them for what they're doing right now, but we need to step it up and crush them.
Just give me back the board, Lance. It was a good board, and I like it.

I think OKC will roll them over in 5 or 6 games. Ibaka is actually closer to Griffin than any other PF in speed and athleticism, Westbrook guarding Chubby Paul full court would drain the lift out of him, lastly no one on that team can even slow KD down one on one.

The general board makes me sick. I'd be banned from this website if I posted over there how I really felt about some of the posts. :lol:

Yeah, I kind of think the Clippers are one of those great Regular Season teams that will struggle when they run into the more grind-it-out pace of the playoffs... Miami and OKC both have the pieces to control the pace and dissect them in the half court.

The Clips have been much more physical this season too, but they are in no way a truly physical team... When they face a truly physical playoff team guys like Blake, and Deandre will be less effective.

Chris Singleton is a guy that's being misused much as Earl Clark was at the beginning of his career. He's a SF that shoots 3s at a 34-35% clip, is very athletic, and has the lateral quickness/defensive focus to become a very good defender. Right now he's being played as a tweener PF which he is not (doesn't have the skills for that).

:D Not surprised... I've run into a lot of posts by other mods lately that left me scratching my head... It makes you wonder about the fan-base they came from.

As much as I don't want to see the Clippers winning the ship this year, their depth is going to be hard to beat in a 7 game series. Unless Durant catches fire, I don't see OKC beating them. Maybe if they still had Harden..

Looks like I missed out on Kidd but I'm keeping strong hope alive that Wall is out future PG.
