I know most Clip fans including myself love not being in the lottery every year, but it is nice having a decent rookie on our squad like Bullock who we can watch grow and watch him try to fit into our line up. I've missed that.

It's just crazy that we have as many as 8 guys on this team already who could realistically shoot 40% from 3.

CP3 had an off year this past season from deep but he'll rebound (and I think this is the mystery skill he's working on). He could easily go for 40% this season.

Collison shot 36% last season. He could do it.

Redick and Dudley are damn near locks to do it. Jamal could do it.

Bullock was drafted for his shooting. Hit like 100 of them last year in 25 games.

Barnes can be right there. Willie shot 42% last season and he's done it consistently.

Mike's partner on the telecast talked about how important it is. Top 4 3pt. shooting teams in the nba last were GS, Miami, OKC, and S.A. Seems like it's pretty important in the league today.

If Blake stays healthy and improves his post up game, I don't see how anybody can defend this team. We run with CP3, Redick, Duds, Barnes, and Blake...Small lineups like this can work with Barnes or Dudley at the 4. It's impossible to guard that lineup. Two guys in the corners, Jamal or Redick running around off screens, Blake working a wide open paint. CP just cutting them up. This team is going to be unbelievable on the offensive end.

^^^Every one of those guys except for JC is above average to elite defensively. CP3, Redick or Dudley at SG, and Barnes at SF is going to be our stopper line-up.

seems like he is going to be the steal of the draft.

we may need him as insurance in case crawford is dealt. Jamal seems likehe wants out

I wouldn't mind Jamal being dealt tbh... I think Green deserves his playing time as a backup, and we have one too many heavy minute shooters.

If we lose Jamal, then we are left with Chris Paul as the only guy who can create his own shot. That didn't work too well for D Rose and the Bulls in 2011 when he had only catch and shoots guys

Blake?!?

And don't forget Mr. Collison, he ain't a scrub on offense. Jamal is a huge asset coming off the bench, but Chris isn't the only one who can create a shot.

That trade for Gortat would make sense, because PHX just drafted Alex Len. Plus Portlands GM Neil Olshey (our for former GM) is high on DJ

Phx doesn't need to trade Gorat, he an an expiring contract...but IF they are going to deal him he'll be worth a lot more at the trading deadline.

And DJ's not going anywhere anyway. Smile

I didn't know his contract was expiring, he will probably make more than we afford on his next contract anyway. I don't think DJ is going anywhere either but it's all people ever talk about on here. People didn't like any VDN decisions but then attack DJ like he shouldn't belong in the league, to me it's pick a side. Either DJ is not worth a starting spot or VDN did a horrible job in utilizing him, I doubt it was both. Doc will give him more freedom and I bet DJ plays with more discipline. We turned a new leaf with a Rivers, this is a fresh start for everyone. As of now, we have one of the quickest and most athletic centers in the NBA that is still young, and has the potential to be a difference maker on the defensive end

Thanks for the updates on the game. Really encouraging to hear so much good news about Bullock. Having a good young guy to watch grow will take away a little of the sting from losing Bledsoe.

Fios has been pissing me off all day been trying to catch the replay all day. It has been listed on the guide only to tune in and have everything but the game (westcoast customs, ufc, poker). Just play the damn replay fox west, nobody wants to watch west coast customs back to back.

Read that Bullock had a great game. Good for him. Always nice to have a strong showing in the Summer League, even if you were a late 1st round pick It's good to start off strong and hopefully bring that into training camp and into the season.

Maybe we got a guy that can give us 12-20 MPG at some point this year contributing a lot more than we'd ever expect ( at least right away ). Big prediction or hope for a guy whose only done well in a summer league game, but he did a ton better than Trey Burke who people thought could go #2 in the draft, and is expected to be one of the top, if not top players to come out of this entire draft.

Bullock was a steal at 25. I am from North Carolina and I have watched this guy since he cracked the rotation as a sophomore. I've have thought once then that he is a perfect fit for this team. Especially when Foye and butler were our wings, I was wonder who we could draft that can defend but still hit a three. Honestly it's crazy that we drafted him because I have wanted him on the team for almost 2 years now

Honestly, I think defense is an extension of the coach. A hard nosed defensive minded coach will make a team become a better defense. That's why I don't give up on guys who were on sucky teams because they "didn't play defense".

I think our defense last year was based solely on the players. And that worked for a bit, but ultimately it wasn't enough in the playoffs.

I hope Davies plays well. If so, I really wouldn't mind taking a chance of him being one of our new bigs!

A good coach can hide players on defense better. They don't necessarily make them better defensively as individuals(at least not by a significant margin) unless they were slacking to begin with. Its always good to have good individual defenders no matter how good the defensive system is. Its not easy hiding a poor defender in a defense. You have to make the other 4 players work harder to compensate and clean up after him.

I think our starting unit will have a strong team defense. Paul, Redick, Dudley, and Griffin are all high Basketball IQ guys, they will really know how to play together under our new defense

Harrison Barnes on @ReggieBullock35: "He has a skill in this game. He can really shoot the ball. He's a good defender."

Did you guys see the Dialy Dime report cards on Reggie Bullock on ESPN for day 1 of summer league? He got great reviews and a A-. The highest grade of the day

I actually have Prime Ticket, but they never show any NBA games, nor NBA related. So, in short, it sucks.

Here you go:

"Man, does this guy know how to use a screen. Bullock looked like a seasoned vet the way he manipulated his defender into contact before curling to the open spot on the floor. Bullock's tidy shooting motion and impeccable balance make him really dangerous on the move, and although he didn't put much else on display offensively, he really didn't need to."

Naw. He said 4:30 pacific. Seems like we are getting moved for Dodgers game and won't get to watch it live PERIOD due to NBA TV blackout for locals. We need to watch on stream or a few more hours.

I awesome that we have this guy for 4 years. He improves every year, and is already getting praise for his vet like skills on moving without the ball and running around screens. Not to mention he is lights out with a quick release. I think we got ourselves a steal considering what we were looking for wing depth and shooting

Looks like Prime Ticket at 4:30 as a replay is THE only way. Fu**ing BS fail scheduling by Fox Sports. I understand it's just summer league but how do you make such a simple mistake like that?

12 point lead for D League. Our shots aren't really going in like last time. Macklin seems to be our standout among the bigs so far. Samuels has had one or two decent moments.

Not seeing a lot of good basketball right now. Hard to say who's really standing out. Bullock not lights out right now. No biggie, we know what he can do. I guess Samuels is the only guy who still shows some quality 2 games in a row. REALLY hoping to see Davies step it up.

10 pts and 4 boards for Bullock at half. I guess he's playing ok. lol

Lots of fouls being called on the Clippers. I tell ya what. I can definitely see Samuels banging against the Z Bo's of the league.
