^ And the way you talk about him, you're probably surprised he can tie his own shoes as well.

That's the problem I have with the Vinny hate... it's just so blind and absolute. No room for any portion of the blame to go to the players, because Vinny's just soooooo pathologically moronic that it MUST be all his fault.

Well, now he has surprised you in a positive way, hopefully he can do it again. Must have been quite the shock to your system when we won a playoff series.

An open mind would have actually read the article and started a conversation...err...An intelligent conversation about what was said. I can live a clever , humorous, snide remark but I guess I'll have to wait for someone else to make it.

Eventhough lot of clipper fans wants coach Vinny to be fired he has the support of all the players,the front office and the owner Mr.Sterling,of the four losses and after the practice I think the team is back on track to win, that is back to basics focus on defense and consistency playing good or bad team.As a true clipper fan need to support and encourage the team whether they are losing or winning.

^ couldnt have said it better myself. 3 of those losses were road losses to good teams.the clips just need to get back to basics and move the ball quickly in order to get high quality shots.

Griffin is always extra motivated to play against klove

VDN should put emphasis on stop switching on screens and learn how to fight off the screens.

Defense should always be top priority. Good Defense leads to easier Offense, simple as that.

while i agree, its hard to fight off screens when u can be held by the opposing team, or they can set illegal screens all throughout the game. but i do agree there needs to be less switching on screens

Players supporting VDN? How about CP3's comment? He wouldn't have said it if there weren't others who believe it (I hope) I didn't see the Brooklyn game but it seems we could have won every other loss. Maybe other teams have scouted us and play balls out against us.

Barnes and Willie are playing above expectations which is a bonus.

I don't get it

Love and AK47 both played over 40mins last night because Coach Adleman really wanted the win. This could be handy for the Clips!

There's no way we can get a 5 game win streak, especially after a 6 game winning streak to quality teams.

Offense sells tickets (how many come to see Blake crash the boards then to see a win),,defense wins championships. YOu can win with 75 points,,if you hold the other team to 70.

Problem is last game Griffin didn't have any offense either, and I don't know who is responsible for getting our players in these slumps, but it is concerning, don't know what it is that is making our players suck just one after the other, 1st CP3, than Blake and DJ, you can't count on your bench to win the games for you, unless you're the hornets playing the clippers!

Yep. I said the same thing to Madelyn Burke on Twitter after she tweeted that the team had an "intense" practice. I'm from Missouri on this one. The have to "show me" that the good practice is going to carry over into the games before I'm going to give them credit for it.

What happened to the "basics"? Defense still sucks, rebounding still sucks. Apparently Vinny doesn't actually know how to teach the basics in the first place.

TO be fair, Pekovic and Love are rebounding monsters, and we held them to only 30 pts in the paint, Griffin did a fantastic job on Love defensively!
