Oh my God you guys are killing me as I read all this shitnitz about DJ being very positive, and DJ being a nice guy, DJ being a damn Clown....man what else man!! Im going nuts about all this crap about him. If you like him for being funny then go hire your own Clown. I dont care about that one bit. If he was a different player he could walk around with a red nose for all I care. But the reality is that hes hurting us. And we need to get rid of him. End of story man. And for those who want to give him more time. He could have all the time in the world. But on another team. Clippers make the trade. Bring on whoever you want. Gortat would be nice. I actually like him. And for those who are comparing him to tyson chandler. lol... Just stop it. Id trade him for DJ in a heartbeat. Man people lets get with the program or next year well end up the same place...And I love my Clippers to damn much to freakin see that again. I love my CLippers!! GO CLIPS!!

Nobody has to tell Kobe to hit the gym. Ray Allen comes in early to practice his shot. Blake has improved his game ON THEIR OWN INITIATIVE

If a guy making $10 mill needs someone to motivate him he should go. Billups owes us nothing but DJ does.

We believed in him enough to over pay him by maybe $3 mill. For believing in him if he were an honorable man he would on his own initiative put in the sweat to keep his end of the bargain. Nobody should have to tell him. EVERYBODY who's ever watched him knows his problems. Forget FT's

Boxiing out, goof defensive position. paying attention. He worked on his post game. Where is it? He has flashes of brillance so the ability is there.

Give me his ability and promise me (or any of us) $10 mill I think you'd see a monster

Maybe he thinks "I've got $30 million already. Why shouid I work?"

I'd even take a Benoit Benjamin over dj at this point. Both disappear and seem to lack motivation, but at least Benjamin could hold his own in the post.

How would you rate these Clipper center's: Benoit, Stanley Roberts, Oliwakandi, DJ, and Bison (I would put DJ as the worst).

Olowokandi was terrible though, just terrible. He was actually one of the worst offensive players in the NBA, ever...

we all know whats gonna happen... DJ doesnt show up again for the second year in the playoffs and we will have him train to show it in small bursts.. we will say hopefully now he is committed. and again we will say we gotta trade him...

Train him? I suggest an electric cattle prod on the testiculos. It would motivate me

So which is it? Is DJ really stupid when it comes to basketball IQ or is it just because he's not involved with the offense so he becomes unmotivated?

What I've never understood was that every now and then he'd do something brilliant in the post then the rest of the game he couldn't find his d*ck. He did an up and under on Duncan I think. It was a work of art.

I don't get it

5 years of professional basketball and 1 up and under... big whoopty do. Hakeem was brilliant. DJ never has been brilliant, nor has any of his moves been so either. DJ's jump hook isn't bad, pretty good actually- too bad he can't pound his way or work his way in to do it more often. When you're a 1 trick pony it's easy to be stopped, he was able to put in a few early on in the season but guys starting ripping him as he was going up with it.

I agree with you about dj... Its like hes scared and it shows, plus he wants that high fg rate but thats not good enough because he's scoring like 8 a game and rbs... BG has that problem too! thats why its no lob city like it use too because players finger out their weakness and its very noticeable.

Everyone describes DJ as "athletic" - I think the opposite. Yes, he can jump high and he can run ok, but he can not catch a pass, he fumbles rebounds that fall to him, he loses control of several one-handed dunk attempts, and his footwork on offense and defense is terrible.

Its felt like DJ is Clipper Topbuzz "Ryan Gomes" treatment. Seriously, yes there is some deficiencies, but he still a better center than half of the league.

Kandi was never comfortable in the post. DJ's scoring rate this season was better than anything Kandi ever did. Also Kandi was an awful finisher. He never shot better than 43.7% FG as a Clipper...he's a C.

DJ is also a better offensive rebounder, and offensive rebounding helps offense. DJ not scoring is better than Kandi attempting. The guy took a ton of jump shots he couldn't make, couldn't finish a post move, ugh, what a waste of a pick.

I agree that he's gettin the "Ryan Gomes treatment." If we had any other center outside of a hand full of big men out there, we would of been begging for a center like DJ. Our current system doesn't use him as well as it should. Either DJ gets garbage points, or once in a long while, we throw him the ball and tell him to do something in the post. This is the first year where we actually toss him the ball once in a while. At times, he looked great, other times he fumbles and cause a turnover. I think he'll be fine, with time.

Most fans here are impatient and want to trade him. DJ needs to do his part too though. He needs to work on his freethrows, and if he starts hitting his freethrows, his game will open up so much.

I read somewhere on this forum that DJ was the reason why we lost to Memphis. We had DJ last year and beat Memphis, the blame shouldn't go on this guy. If Blake would have never gotten injured, I strongly believe that we would of beaten Memphis. The Grizzlies were just a tough match up for us, and for anyone really.

Clipper nation I need your help, I move to Florida from Southern California I have been here a little over a year now. I brag so much about Cali and the Lakers and Clippers I have my head down now. Looking at the playoffs & that guy DJ what the hell is he doing out there? It really seems this guy is totally disconnected from the game. He can't even give us 12points a game let alone make free throws, I can't even wear my Clipper shirt into LA Fitness with out getting funny looks. Do I need to come back to Cali to trade DJ? I'm going going back back to Cali Cali... Dam how much is this no baller getting paid? hell I can give at least 10 points a game and make my my free throws for 10million.

I said DeAndre was one of the reasons we lost. Why was BG guarding Gasol? Why didn'r DJ body up Gasol instead of giving him space and get torched by a set shot? He dropped every pass or got stripped.

Kandi was a head case. They hired Jabar to coach him and he said Fu*k Off

DJ is a beaten man. Shooting 36% FT's is the result of terror. He doesn't have it to play in the NBA. I said he made some beautiful post moves. These weren't accidents. WIth his athleticism he should be able to torch a lot of v=centers. His hook ain't bad. He has the skills but not the courage. He's , sorry to say, a coward

Well higher per hour than DJ but at least they are big contributor during the regular season but DJ is garbage most during that season.

We all agree the problems with DJ are from the neck up. Unfortunately he is not mentally strong enough to play at NBA level, and no coach, psychiatrist, or clergy, is able to get thru to him. I would ship him out ASAP.

Living in portland there are tons of people up here who think DJ is still a good player and would rather him on their team than Batum or JJ Hickson. I know that doesn't really matter what fans think, but it just shows there is still a market out there for our trash.

I don't think DJ will be traded until after July. Once CP3 signs, then E-Bled and DJ will be packaged somewhere.

It isn't his confidence, or lack of confidence - it is his emotional make-up. He has maturity of a 2 year old. When things are going great, he is happy go-lucky, but when things aren't going great (opposing center too physical, his coach takes him out, teammate doesn't give him a lob, he misses shots) he can't cope.

Upper body strength = Bench press.

He his more athletic that D12 as far as being able to move his feet. We have all seen him DJ brilliant things. His baby hook is nice. On occasion he's shown great footwork. These are not accidents. If he can do it once he can repeat.

HE IS MENTALLY INTIMIDATED. He can't handle double teams and can't pass. He gets stripped. These are not accidents.

I THINK HE'S PHYSICALLY INTIMIDATED. Has anyone seen him body up anyone? Has anyone seen him as mean as Matt or BG or CP3

Repped High Quality Post

Let's get to the cold hard facts. We are NEVER winning with DJ as our center. True, he is a really good shooter, oh sorry, he was the ONLY player in the NBA at one point, not to have made a shot outside the paint. Yes, he is a really good shot blocker and plays great help defense. Oops, I meant to say, he asks for help all the time. He is a crunch time free throw shooter, in the mold of Chris Dudley. He and Blake think it's great to joke all the time, complain and not run back on "D".

AND we are never going to win until Blake grows up.

As far as Jerry Sloan, he would be a great coach. NOT, NOT Byron Scott, PLEASE!!!!
