Ha yeah, that was good. In Vinny's defense, it's nearly impossible to play 11 guys and allocate minutes optimally. There was arguably too much depth on this roster - or at least depth at the wrong positions. Too many wings on this team. Barnes, Crawford and Green deserve to play a bulk of the minutes.

Crawford clearly frustrated - and deservedly so.

Another reason why Jamal played so little is cause Allen has been destroying him on the boards.

This!

The Memphis bigs were able to dominate because they didn't have to work much on the defensive end. Blake didn't do enough to make Randolph work on the defensive end so he was able to just focus on scoring. I'm not even going to get started with DJ.

It sucks with the way it ended but overall, it was a fun and historic season. However, I'm ready to trade in all the highlight plays for deep playoff runs. The team is fun to watch but it's time to break up the Blake and DJ bromance. I want to see this team take it to the next level because they really are only a few key players away from doing so.

Thank you Don, call out Vinny for his BS excuse. I get the feeling that he and Mike Smith are totally blasting VDN off camera.

i need to hear these words man, before i snap and beat down those talking s*** about the clips. im pissed because i agree with the refs having had a huge role in the clips loss. if i ever see joey crawford on the street, im breaking his face with a punch. im very upset, but trying to remain calm. and i agree, the best is yet to come. this team will have two stars to build around. wishing sterling says "f*** the luxury tax" and spends to add more talent to this roster.

When Billups dribbled the ball out of bounds when the game was getting tight (6 points I think), I couldn't help but laugh. I couldn't believe we had been starting that guy this whole series, and he probably still can't accept that he's not a good player anymore. Can't wait to see him go. Honestly I've had it out for the guy since this offseason when he ran his pricetag up to 4 million even though he was 36, was coming off a major injury, had proven nothing yet, and clearly didn't appreciate that we were paying him to do rehab for almost a year.

Repped High Quality Post

Joey Crawford definitely stepped up today. Whenever the Clippers scrapped together a run, he would get a quick technical call in to stop the momentum. What did he go for 27 and 10 today? 27 foul calls and 10 technicals vs Clippers. Double double for the night. He only had one ejection vs the Clippers, but it was a huge one...CP3. Probably one of the greatest individual performances by a ref that I've ever seen. I hope Memphis honored him with the game ball in the locker room after the game.

He was so close to getting the Grizzlies 50 free throws! Maybe next time.

As I stood in a cold shower just now, I came to realize the one thing that makes me most disappointed about this loss is that this will be the last clips basketball game I get to see for the next six months. Was it too early? Or was this a needed step in our evolution? Time to go back and relive some of the great things we had and acomplished this season, and then think on all the possibities for next.....

Go clips!

Fan-f'ing-tastic. Chris Paul sounding disgusted and talking about having time to think. I'm going to begin preparing for the worst.

Hard to defend Vinny with some of his decisions. Butler was ghost for most of the series, why not go with Grant sooner in the series? Willie was one of the hottest players down the stretch yet he barely played all series long. I understand it's not easy to manage a lot of depth but don't wait to shake things up until an elimination game. He had plenty of time to make some adjustments.

The fact that CP3 looks just as pissed as I am, it makes me feel a bit better.

Damn, that would have been sweet to hear CP just go OFF on the refs, Vinny, etc. I hope Blake cares that much..

This was necessary. I think deep down we all knew that we couldn't win with our center. Tonight I think has started an evolution for Griffin. He always puts the work in, but now I think he wants to win more than anything. I believe whole-heartedly that he's gonna have a meeting with the GM and recommend that DJ be traded.

That interview by CP3 was GROSS! I don't like the vibe he gave. 90% he is gone. Sad but true. So let us pray on that 10% chance that he stays. Embarassed And if he leaves, well F**K him too! I just hate that I possibly wasted $360.00 on three CP3 jerseys!

Only way CP3 leaves is if coach and team stay intact. This isn't like Dwight Howard where he clearly doesn't like his situation. Paul loves it here and Griffin (who improves every single year) gives him the best chance to win.

Meh, I don't think he's gone. I just think he's mad. Plus, there's a little businessman in him too...just sayin'!

LOL oh man those good old days when our expectations were so low that we could never be disappointed. I go back to the Benoit Benjamin, Joe Wolf, Darnell Valentine, Greg Kite days, so I challenge any GM to do worse than that! As long time Clippers fans we're immune, but to go back to sub .250 winning percentages again would be a betrayal that I won't stand for.

It's Shawshank time for this franchise, they need to get busy winning (in the playoffs) or get busy dying.

Yup... I'd take guys like Whang Zhi Zhi or Sean Rooks back over mental midgets like DJ.

Yeah... the heart thing was my point. Zeljko had a bad heart so he couldn't play anymore... DJ has NO heart.

^^ He look like he's going to cry. Or cry so hard to beg CP3 to stay and keep his job.

I'm still having a hard time bringing myself to believe that we had a chance to cut it to 4 with like 4 minutes to go and Billups basically bounced the ball off his foot and turned it over.

congrats to the grizz - they definitely deserved the series victory.

we fought hard, but like CP said, "too little too late"

besides, i never thought this team was built to win a ring. top heavy in the backcourt.

The bottom line is, its just a shame. Such a waste of a super deep roster to go out like this. To go out like some punks, scared to fight. We should be used to this kinda failure right? Not anymore... This kinda failure is unacceptable and someone needs to be punished!

Very true my friend, but we also THOUGHT this team would NOT fold this easy and so early either.

CP3 wore a bright red jacket to the press conference. I think that's a statement that he's a Clipper.
