Butler has been one of our most consistent players the last two months. He never bitches and always plays hard. Not to mention he's 33 and on the decline after two knee surgeries. Im not concerned about him right now.

ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL this.........is nothing new

and guess what.........there's nothing the fans, players or coaches can do about it.

Because if their was.........it would have already been done.

Can't really put any blame on free throws.......HOWEVER......we shouldn't have been down 22, but it happened.......and the Clippers should have showed up in the 1st quarter and not the 4th......just saying.

ACCOUNTABILITY on the controllable factors and not the officials is all I can worry about because it's going to happen EVERY game.

Btw Vinny should bench CP3 for that bullshit. He screamed for a much needed timeout and CP3 waived him off and bricked another.

I remember that- that was simply awful. I mean you wave off your coach's timeout call, then miss the layup and then the other team dumps another open 3 on your team because everyone is out of position.... Okay CP- is it okay to call timeout now?

Obviously CP3 didn't mean to have the result turn out so badly- he tried to sneak in a quick 2, but ignoring your coache's timeout call- I don't know....

But no way Vinny benches CP though, and you know why.

lol remember when sam I am did that? dunleavy calls for timeout, sam waives it off, pops a mid range J

CP3 is the reason why we loss to Pacers. He doesn't pass the ball to Jamal when he enter the court, when in fact it was Jamal and Bledsoe start the rally. Vinny should stay on that line up.

Because Hollins is just better. That's one thing Vinny has finally figured out. Yeah, I wish Hill played to guard George.

Yeah Hollins is better. Sometimes I think Hollins even plays better then DJ! The main problem is that he fouls too much though.

What the Clippers need to do this offseason is become a tough, defensive minded team. Last year's Clippers were no where near as talented as this team but in crucial regular season games and playoff games, last years goon squad would have knocked you on your ass and take you out of your game. That's how the Clippers beat the favorite Grizzlies... Sheer will and determination. This years Clippers gets flustered too easily and is very lazy. It was a joke watching the Pacers inflate their lead to 24 points. They were playing hard while the Clippers were playing flat footed.

DJ's gotta go. He's too much of a clown to be the starting center of a championship contender(at this point, you can erase that title from the Clippers. They got that card pulled from them a long time ago). Either he comes off the bench or trade him for a real starting Center. A player like Tyson Chandler, Roy Hibbert, or M Gasol would do wonders for this team. I'd love a package deal to get a combo of Chandler/Shumpert, Hibbert/Hill, Chandler(Denver)/ Koufos.

Hard to pay someone 10 million for coming off the bench. I say trade him if anything, but it depends what we can get back. Any of those combos you mentioned above i like. But I doubt those teams would trade. I like Wilson Chandler a lot. A 3 pt shooter and a great defender.

DJ's gotta go. Halleluja to that. The guy is a bust, plain and simple. His FT shooting alone has cost us game after game, and it's so awesome watching him laughing about as he goes 0-6 from the line in 2point losses. Does he even understand that his suckitude is the difference in the game a lot of nights? 10mil per year for a guy that can't shoot, can't hit a FT, gets schooled defensively by any decent C, and is an expert at turning the ball over in the most crucial situations if his teammates make the mistake of passing him the ball.

Hopefully he has a few decent games in the PO's so we can trick some moron GM into giving us something decent for him. I'd go for Omer Asik straight up in a heartbeat.

Most likely it won't be that easy though. Sacks will probably have to package him with Bled to get a decent return. More likely, he'll play out his contract and move on to the next sucker.

I was really disappointed in Blake and CP3 last night, and actually for the past couple weeks. Another 2-12 shooting night from Paul. Passing up wide open 15foot shots and deferring to Jamal for contested 3's in the final moments. Blake, another game where he disappears for extended stretches of the game. He doesn't rebound anymore. The two of them had the worst +/- on our team last night. This is simply shocking. We won't beat the Bobcats with that kind of performance.

End of game, for better or worse, it's on these guys' shoulders and they're not getting it done.

It's just sad how we're backing into the PO's as our most likely 1st round competition is just now peaking.

Trading DJ is impossible almost. Ralph talked about this and I was going mention it, DJ coming off the bench and starting Hollins. Who would want a $10 mill center who gets punked by an end of the bench scrub. $6 maybe $7 mil, not $10. If he had an expiring contract yes

That's what pisses me off the most.

OK, so he can't shoot for sh*t... but then he gives death-stares at the coach for pulling him and clowns it up on the bench?

Poor man's Dwight Howard... a VERY poor man's.

Never underestimate the front offices of the Warriors, Timberwolves, Kings, Bobcats, Wizards, Magic, etc. We could move him.

I hope so. He's young, big, athletic and a Center. He's just not a right fit for us. We need someone who can play defense, shoot the midrange jumpers well, make free throws.

You never know. I'm hoping Sacramento becomes desperate to trade Cousins again.

It won't be easy trading DJ. The only way we'll get something decent back is if we package him with Bledsoe... But too bad it's not November. Looks like Bledsoe lost some trade value as of late. He's not the mini LeBron that we remember from last years playoffs and the beginning of the regular season. Hopefully some gm is salivating over an athletic big and a "secret weapon" backup PG.

As long as there is a Michael Jordan running a team there will be a place for terrible contracts.

In our defense (and I'll admit, it's getting harder and harder to defend) had we not started the game so crappy, I believe we would have won, maybe convincingly. But the terrible turnovers from the beginning were unbelievable. I mean, my eyes may have been deceiving me, but I'm almost positive I saw Caron pass the ball to his defender the very first play of the game.

Has DJ ever commented on his crappy free throw shooting? Is he at all embarrassed? Doesn't look like it! i'm done with him, really. He's done after this year anyway, emotionally I've moved on. This season is being wasted.

In other words an average center

He did.

Didn't CP3 have 2 or 3 in the first five min?

MJ needs to buy the Nuggets and give us Koufos, Chandler, and Gallinari for DJ.
