Arash Markazi ‏@ArashMarkazi 7m

Talked to CP3 tonight. He's thrilled with what the Clippers are doing and looking forward to playing for Doc.

CP3: "I'm so excited to play for him. Words can't describe it. Doc is amazing."

Arash Markazi ‏@ArashMarkazi 7m

CP3: "Everything that has happened doesn't automatically translate into wins but it gives you an opportunity to win so I'm excited."

Arash Markazi ‏@ArashMarkazi 5m

CP3 said his decision to stay in L.A. was a family decision. "We even let 'Little Chris' chime in on it," he said.

Arash Markazi ‏@ArashMarkazi 4m

CP3 said he texts & talks to Blake Griffin every day about the team. "I'm excited about playing together, I'm excited about what's to come."

Great to see this. Lets now just hope DJ turns into an Allstar to become that third cornerstone along side BG and CP.

He's more like a stone in the Clippers' shoe. I doubt you can make chicken salad out of chickenshit so i won't hold my breath on DJ ever becoming a all-star.

DJ is a bust we need to trade him to improve the center position

Lol, damn. I feel you though, it's only fair to see how he plays under Doc though.

I am glad he was fully committed. And all the DJ naysayers there are a lot of players that turned it around. And in all honesty his stock is so down we would never get someone equal or better then hI'm

Turning it around implies he had something to turn around to. Razz

Lol all the dj hate r dumbbb.. Man i can't blame dj why he nver had a good season he's been with sucky coach all his career. Doc rivers will help him and he said it himself.. Main priority is dj and blake. Dj has all the tool to become a great center he just don't know how to use it

He's out of excuses now. If he can't thrive under Doc he's trash, period. Season 6 time to be a big boy.

We'll see just how dumbbbbb we are when Doc takes out DJ late in games, just like our last sucky coach did. A player going into his 6th season is just about a finished product. Doc is a good coach, not god. lol

Press conference is Wednesday, not tomorrow. Don't want anyone sitting waiting around for it tomorrow.

The conference is on Wednesday which is when all the trades and agreements can be finalized.I wish it was on Monday haha I can't wait either,that's gonna be cool to see all of them.I hope they show it on Prime Ticket like they did with the Doc conference.And maybe by then we will have our roster complete by signing another big or 2.

It was a typo. I meant Wednesday which is why I mentioned counting down days.

If DJ was a religion, I'd be Athiest

I like to look at facts and examine history to come to the conclusion that DJ's game doesn't exist. People who support DJ are basing his talents on hope and faith and nothing more, and there's nothing wrong with that at all. I wish I had the patience to wait for DJ to become something more than just a $11 mil a year butt buddy to Blake Griffin.

Doc Rivers will have to be a pretty damn good preacher for me to convert to DeAndre'ism

DJ could never be as bad as religion is.

LOL, this is ironic. I'm a huge DJ supporter, but an atheist for the most part (I believe we should just be good people for the sake of being good people, I won't discuss much more than that on religion unless you ask). I guess I had to put my faith somewhere, just kidding. I think we all just see different things from DJ, and have different ideas of what we want in our centers. I could care less for a center that can stretch the floor, if he can shoot outside of 6 or 7 feet is just a bonus. I want a center that rebounds and makes everybody scared to come into our paint. With DJ's size and athleticism it is hard not to think that he has potential there. If he were to bulk up just a bit he would be hard to push around. He is 265 and looks very lean, if he were to hit the gym with blake twice a week til the season started he'd be bigger than Dwight in no time. All he really needs to do is learn Doc's system so he knows his rotations like the back of his hand, and box out and he'd be the ideal center for me (improve free throw shooting to 55% too). My favorite Centers that I've had a chance to see in my lifetime are Mutumbo, Robinson, Hakeem, and Alonzo you could also include Oakley and Rodman even though they are not truly Centers.

Awesome breakdown by Israel Gutierrez. Says he won't be surprised if we are the 1 seed and win 60 games.

the only problem with DJ is that he lacks of motivation to be a better player but all the tools r there. DJ never had a coach who would motivate him and push his motor. he had vinny who would put him to bench when the fourth quarter comes and never trusted himand dunleavy who doesn't like to win. I'm not a fan of DJ and I hate that we pay him so much just to hangout n lolly gag with blake griffin but all i'm saying is give him a chance under doc. I'm pretty sure doc knows what he is talking about on his press conference aabout blake and dj being a defensive player. Dj has long arms and got hops prolly better than dwight. Imagine if he learns how to used that under doc. we wud be a dangerous team..

Most of this I agree with. I figure Doc must have some secret training aid (a big 2 X 4?) that he know will work on DJ or he wouldn't have wanted to keep him. Heck,we could have had Kaman back Shocked

Didn't DJ had a great start at the beginning of the season? Maybe this time he could even improve from that and maintain it

I just started following the NBA since 2 years ago and decided to follow the clippers and I already feel bad that half the team faces disappears every year idk how people can cry about trading players so much and care more about winning over supporting their players.

He was a 2nd round pick. Not exactly a bust. Unfortunately GSW offered him a huge ass contract and we matched. We were fooled by DJ's freakish physical talent but complete lack of bball iq and work ethic.
