Absolutely disgusting to see DJ quit on the team

I don't know that he even quit... he just doesn't have hands or a heart.

Dude needs to see the wizard of Oz.

How can he quit when he is not helping.

Any game memphis shoots like that, no one is beating them. But our best defender, Bledsoe barely plays? If VDN going for offense, he puts billups in vs crawford? Yes, Crawford sucked last few games, but Billups sucked every game. CP and Barnes looked great and at least Blake battled.

Everyone sez get rid of DJ and Butler....but who would take them? Really..they are bad AND overpaid. Good luck with that.

Well, I know that most don't like this idea, but I have said it before and will say it again, if we still have CP3 we need to trade Griffith and Jordan to Lakers for Howard. We will never win a championship with these 2 guys. We need a true scoring center and defensive player. We need a center who can get his own shot. Both Griffith and Jordan have no offensive game of their own, and both are useless on D in the clutch. Neither one of these two have progressed the last 2 years. They have maxed out their talent and skills.

We can try to win a championship, or be satisfied with these two trying to win our division or make the playoffs each year.

Griffith is fun to watch, but just isn't a championship type player. It is fun to see the Clippers finally competitive with most teams, but they can't take the next step with this crew.

Well my fellow Clippers fans, let's congrats to the Memphis Grizzlies team. Let's go out with class and congrats on their board for a well fought series. Wish all the luck for them.

This series was a great example of how valuable guys Evans and Martin were for this team against Memphis last season. Now, Griffin gets hurt and we have zero toughness in the paint. It's great to have a deep bench, but when you don't have the pieces to match up against guys like Gasol and Randolph without fouling the s*it out them in a half court set you're going to lose.

Vinny's gone... that goes without saying. But the biggest problem is that we have 3 starters who are absolute sh!t.

They shouldn't have all been starters! Especially in the second half of this game. VDN's refusal to sit Billups and DJ lost us this game.

That depends on if you want to keep CP3.

He likes playing with Chauncey... hopefully he learned something and he likes winning better.

CP3 wouldn't even care. Just because he said some nice stuff about Billups doesn't mean he wants him in if he plays like trash. This loss is 80% on VDN. Some of the worst rotations I have ever seen in a do or die situation.

Would have rather seen a better called game to end the series..really sucked to watch this game, just wasn't very entertaining due to all the whistle blowing. Hopefully this rivalry continues, though. Usually makes for a great game.

A lot of people might not like him but what if the Clips can somehow pull off pairing Dwight with CP3 and Blake. I wouldn't be surprised if CP3 and Dwight actually talks about the idea back in LA. Of course they would both probably have to take a pay cut and the Clips will have to pull a lot of strings but if Miami can put together a legitimate big 3, then anything is possible.

Pipe dream but not too far fetched in my opinion.

I dont care what anybody says, the refs had a HUGE impact on this game and controlled it from start to finish, what a disgrace. I'm so frustrated but I KNOW the best is yet to come for ClipperNation, we are only going to get better, stay positive everyone.

I agree to an extent, but we could have still won if we actually had players at the 2, 3 and 5 spots.

Priorities are to re-sign CP3, then Barnes, then Willie... and kick DJ and Butler as far from Playa Vista as is humanly possible.

This is what you call the old fashion six game sweep....the higher seeded team wins the first two games and then falls flat in the next 4 games. When VDN gets canned it will be because he went with the vet Billups too long, didn't play Crawford in the second half of this game and waited until a close out game to trot in Hill and Green. Second in Billups career the proverbial six game sweep has occurred. He was there when the Pistons won the first two games of the 2007 EC Championship only to see Lebron's Cavs come back and sweep the next four. The injury has basically made Billups a shadow of himself, so Kobe fans better beware.

We don't need Howard, we need Lebron James, let cp3 work for it if he will stay. Blake and DJ for Lebron.

Agreed. He's the man tonight.

He's a keeper.

It's disappointing to have to end a season this way. We broke a lot of records this year. Yet still ended up with the same record as Memphis. We've proven we can beat this team, so it's not about them. I just hope next year we face ANOTHER team in the first round. I'm over having to see our bigs get beat up and bruised in the first round.

Having said that, I love my Clippers. And I know we'll have another great season next year...

So who'd I keep?

CP3: I think he stays. Why wouldn't he? Losing tonight will probably make him want to come back even more.

Blake: This guy was truly our rock all season. He'll be even better if he has another Big who can compliment him.

Green: A trooper all year. I'd be fine with him at starter if it means a quality center instead.

Crawford: Didn't show up tonight. But you'd be hard pressed to find a more explosive 6th man than he.

Barnes: Gritty small forward. Love the guy.

Definitely drop:

DJ: Nothing against him, but we can't afford two insanely athletic Bigs. One BG is enough, we don't need our center to be BG Jr. We need a center who can either be a big presence against guys like Randolph (maybe a Cousins or Bynum?). Or we need a center who can shoot (like a Gasol or Jefferson) to open things up for Blake. Either would help Blake's game tremendously.

Billups: This game was a sad example of why.

Vinny: He has some positive qualities. I just think it's time to move on...SVG???

One the fence:

Caron: He showed up tonight. I'd be okay if we had no other options...but if there are better options out there, I'd take it...as long as a new center is our top priority.

Everyone else is...whatever.

I'm afraid that would really hurt Blake's game. We're fine with Blake and CP3, we just need really good role players.

Really?

Vinny has no contract, but who the f*ck do you think is going to take DJ @ $10,000,000 for the next 2 years?

We're stuck with the f***** bum.

Congratulations, Blake... your best buddy just f***ed your mom. Knock that fucker out!

If they still have that And1 tour thing going, DJ should go there or maybe play with the Harlem Globetrotters. he isn't a basketball player.

Time to start making some SERIOUS changes to this roster. We need to gut the useless pieces from this team: Vinny, DJ, Billups, Butler, Odom. Upgrade our back up bigs by drafting Withey. Look to add some shooters, extend Barnes, extend Paul, add a starting big man who can actually pass and MAKE A 15 FT JUMPER to free up some space for Blake, and trade Bledsoe for a position of greater need, preferably starting SF.

ALOT to do this offseason but if we can start by cutting Vinny Del Cancer and extending Paul its a good start.

On a more positive note, thank you to this years Clippers for giving us our best regular season to date, I had a blast before having my heart broken. Clips4Life!

Yeah, not playing your second leading scorer in the second half was a bit more than perplexing. And the reasoning behind Chauncey getting any burn at all after that first quarter was equally as confounding. I've always respected Vinny for being a hard-nosed player and an all-around good guy, but the fact is he's just a terrible head coach. I'll take Robert Pack in a second for next season if they can't get a big name.

Someone will take a DJ / Bledsoe package. Honestly I think some teams would take DJ straight up. He has certain tools that can't be taught and luckily lhere are some really stupid GMs out there.

DJ, Butler, Odom, Billups = $30,000,000+

I know that Blake's extension kicks in and that CP3 gets a raise, but it's time for some creative front office work.

You're right, man. I'm just depressed right now.

Hard to see how we'll get full value, but at this point I'd trade DJ for a cheerleader's knickers.

The Bled package is our best bet. I just really hope we get a solid 3rd option for those 2.

Putting Billups back in the game is probably the dumbest coaching decision I've ever seen. I can't believe VDN is that dumb... maybe CP wanted to go down with him by his side???????

I had one of those. Took some time to recover, but even when I was in the ER, I was still more effective than DJ's goofy arse.
