Everyone can shoot if you are looking at the highlights. Especially going against 40 yr old men.

thats true i still think he'd be a decent get for 1 year that can still put some points up and help the bench i'd rather have him over beasley.

He was on the bench for HOU last year and he literally looked washed & old. That's not good for a guy that already has an old school game too.

Johnson didn't play in the NBA last year, I'm not advocating for him, but I don't think the argument about setting on the bench is a good one, since Tony Snell has been a non-rotation player a good portion of his career.

I can't help but feel like his most recent NBA stint is a better predictor of future productivity than his time in the Big3. Just doesn't seem like it's at the same level.

He gets kudos for being better than the other retired players and washouts though. Lamar Odom couldn't hack it.

??? Snell has played rotation minutes his whole career. He's averaging 73 games and 21 mpg. He's not a star by any stretch, but he's carving out a nice role for himself in the NBA.

Blake ranked in at 19 on SI top 100

Blake Griffin made more pull-up three-pointers on a better percentage last season than Kyrie Irving, CJ McCollum, and Devin Booker.

That's surprising. He had a whole healthy offseason last year and it led to him establishing a proven 3pt shot. He is having another healthy offseason this year. I have a feeling that 3pt percentage is going to get up around 38% this year.

Dre working hard for next season. Gonna prove them haterz all Wrong!!!

KL: Last year, whenever we talked about the progress of your young players, you would finish by saying, “And I include Andre in that group. He’s still a young player.” We saw growth from him over the course of last season. In what areas do you want to see him take a next step? Dwane Casey: One, his overall conditioning. He’s in the best shape since I’ve been around him, the year and a half that I’ve seen. His body is slim and trim, his body fat is down, he’s been in Vegas working with Coach Gerg (Tim Grgurich) and Sean Sweeney all summer religiously, two and three times a day.


Combine that with Reggie playing in a contract year will make this years playoff run very interesting.

A healthy Jackson, breakout season for Kennard, and the Rose we saw last year would essentially give us 3 really nice perimeter players compared to basically none last year.

If Snell helps out defensively and shooting a few threes, Brown improves, Blake plays strong at end of season injury free and having a decent PF/C backup for a change in Kief will go a long way. At least we have better depth than past few years.

Just having our third point guard under 35 is comforting to me.
