ClipperSam... We talked so much trash about you... we spoke down on you.. ect ect ect... You knew since the start.. you deserve some kind of prize... a rep maybe?

If you notice I rarely wrote anything this season. I tried avoiding the confrontation and knew it was just a matter of time. It disgusted me last season and it tore me apart watching him coach this team all over again. He had more talent then he did last year. His accomplishments or lack of has been overshadowed by the superior talent of this team. I knew it was just a matter of time. I appreciate folks finally acknowledging what I saw from his 1st season. DJ and Blake have progressed and the team was going know where.

Thanks for your acknowledgement!!!!

DeAndre is the biggest POS in the NBA, Vinny would've looked like a genius if he pulled off the Garnett trade.

Blake does have an offensive game. I just don't know where it went. Where were the hook shots? Where was that left handed hook that was so deadly earlier this season? Where was that step back jumper that looked so good early on? Where was that bank shot he was hitting even as a rookie? I think he's done so much deferring to Paul and others this season that it has affected his game a bit. That's kinda been my concern all season. Paul and Vinny want Blake to spot up from 18 ft, but BG is much more effective closer to the basket. I think BG needs to work with Hakeem, and I think the team needs to reevaluate their offensive schemes.

We need someone to go out there and grab on some nuts... Where is Grant Hill? He can play defense still right? I mean.. something some of our players cant... Start Grant Hill at PF?

Better offense and better defense?

Seems like Vinny was the only guy in the organization who actually knew what it took to win. Nobody else wanted the trade and he got voted down.

If only the Butler for Ariza and DJ for KG trade went through.

Not just DJ for KG. It would've included Bledsoe. We sure as hell will receive something better in return for Bledsoe in the offseason than a 37-year old KG. I'm glad that trade didn't happen. I would've loved it if it included Pierce, but that was far-fetched.

And it's not like Willie is an inexperienced youngster Dude has played in 28 playoff games in his career before this season. Chauncey has totally blocked him and it's cost us.

No one thinks with a good coach DJ can be competent. And honestly I really think Billups starts because of CP3

I still find it mind-boggling even that even after all the focus on securing the rebound after a stop, that we fail to do so. Tony Allen especially- how the heck do you allow him to get 5 offensive rebounds (8 total)? Dude had 2 offensive rebounds (5 total) in game 4, 2 more offensive rebounds in game 3 (9 total). That's ludicrous. The guy is a shooting guard.

Chauncey and Caron combine for 3 rebounds in 31 minutes. Jamal 2 rebounds in 36 minutes.... So much for gang rebounding. Barnes had 9. We might have to consider starting Matt at shooting guard to at the very least keep Tony Allen off the boards. Maybe bring Willie off the bench to go with the second unit- by that time, Memphis will only have either Gasol or Randolph in the game, so we could get away with a smaller lineup.

True too bad VDN doesn't even play Bledsoe.

Well, barring some miracle...there will be some changes made in the off season.

I'm not too worried about Blake. We know he's a gym rat who works hard at becoming a better player, so he'll be okay. By the way, he's been shooting 82% from the FT line in the playoffs.

I'm sure CP3 will be back next season. I hope Crawford and Barnes stay. As far everyone else...?

37 year old KG would demand more respect from the refs. I guarantee you a lot of these bullshit calls would not be called against us if KG was on the team. Aside from that , he would have been an option offensively capable of hitting a base line jumper. He would have created more space for Blake and forced Gasol to play defense instead of sagging in the paint all game. Hinsight is always 20/20.

I think Blake was on his way to double digit rebounds if not for the injury. He looked like he was really trying early on. Dude even had 5 assists by the way. If he was truly playing on a high ankle sprain, I got to give him props for working out there.

Odom had about 3 turnovers in a really short period of time. There was one TO he had when he grabbed a rebound, then passed the ball REALLY hard to Matt Barnes. I mean that was the hardest pass I've ever seen. The ball careened off Barnes hand and went to Memphis. I don't know what Odom was thinking there?

Yup- 4 turnovers really hurt. And I don't know why he keeps shooting 3's- he's what like 20% or something awful like that. I think that's why he was benched for so long- probably too long. If Lamar doesn't rush and don't shoot too many 3's, he can be very effective.

I'd give that a shot. Yeah his attitude is a major problem but the guy has talent that not many centers have ever had in the NBA. I think his game could really take off with this team.

Cousins wouldn't be a bad option but I can see him pouting with BG and CP3 getting all the attention.

Cousins would give us the toughness that we missed from Kmart and Evans. Too bad Jason Collins has no offensive game, but I am sure the refs would give him some respect!!

If we beat Memphis in game 6 and 7 then I can hear an argument for Vinny staying.

Tonight game was very frustrating to watch. It did show promise at first half, like usual, but last few minutes of first minutes is what change the momentum. Clippers did fought hard, but Grizzlies was the superior team in regard in answer every run we try to mount of. Game 6 will definitely be a dog fight and with Griffin 50% at best, it will truly take a miracle to win. However just like Game 1 last year, anything can happen. Believe my fellow Clippers fans and we will come out on top.

Can't blame Vinny entirely. Front office gets half the blame. Standing pat at the deadline was a bad, bad move. Aren't the playoffs the sole reason why we hung on to Chauncy for so long? Where you at Billups?

Plus Tony Allen is a bad matchup. Chauncey is not athletic enough to guard him or box him out. He can't score against Allen also.

Regarding Garnett trade, it wouldn't go down anyway. Garnett denied the trade himself. So wishful thinking. I do not think Ariza would do much either. Not much of an upgrade.

Gortat, Horford, Chandler, Stoudemire, Hawes, Birdman, Sanders, Nene, Pau, Splitter, Verajao, Vucevic or Drummond would all be extreme upgrades at the Center spot.

Chauncey Billups should not play at all at game 6. He do nothing all series.

needless to say, im beyond upset. but it doesnt sting as much as it should considering memphis absolutely DESERVED to win game 3,4, and 5 (and if it werent for a certain PG's shot, game 2). this series couldve been over already with memphis winning 4-1. zbo and gasol have been playing astonishingly well to the point and get nothing but respect from me. i wish we had players like that on our roster.

kudos to blake for having the balls to even try to play tonight. crazy respect.

lastly, i said it last year, i said it this year, i said it when we were up 2-0, and im saying it now.

this team is not properly constructed to win a ring.
