Bynum had one his best games of the season and we had bad game and we still outscored the Cavs when Bynum was on the floor. They did their damage to us we he was out and we did our down damage by missing a ton of shots (Paul 4-16, Griffin 3-12, Crawford 5-18, Green 4-13). Jordan had 12 points on 7 FGA, so he did get easy baskets.

Bynum consistently made the Cavs worse the entire time he was there.

Even if he do great against us, we can't just sign anyone who does good against with looking at how they do against everyone else, otherwise we'd have a team full Darko Milicic's and Michael Beasley's.

Darko and Beasley would both be upgrades at the bench 4 and 5. We truly can't go into the playoffs like this we will fail.

If Bynum was going to be our starting center, I'd agree with you.

He'll be playing limited minutes though, and the game slows down significantly in the playoffs.

He can play, that's not the question. The question is whether his attitude will have a bad effect on the team.

Doc might be waiting for L.O. he (lamar) was doing interviews at the golden globes saying he's ready and healthy and wants to return to the nba with the clippers. He also made a bold prediction saying that if we pick him up were going to take it all.

With how much Guards kill us, having Bigs that can show off screens and stop penetration! Lamar and Ryan Can both show very effectively! Antawn Jamison and Byron Mullens can show, its the get back to their man part that is the killer! They are too slow! Like I said! No Matter what Lamar has gone through, he still was effective last year! Lamar is the SAFEST BET! Lamar was loved by the Clips! Lamar was that guy that every time he stepped on the court I wanted him to do good! I thought Mully would be that this year but even he is worse than overweight Lamar! I'm sure we all agree that Lamar Odom gaves us better minutes than any 3rd big we have had this season! Signing Lamar makes a lot of sense if you think about it! We need a Point Guard right? We also need Bigs right? If I'm not mistaken Lamar is a point-forward? Fills both needs we need to fill! PG for bench and big for bench! Him and Hudo are the options right now to fill those roles! Preferably Odom because of his Defense! We already know how the experiment of taking a BAD Defensive player and thinking putting him under Doc would make him a better defender aka Mullens! We all know Lamars talents- he should honestly be the #1 we are looking at right now! He feels all roles we need! I have been an advocate for Lamars Return to the Clippers since Day 1

Clips should just look for a PG that could dribble up the court, pass the ball and get the away from everyone else. If needed, shoot a 3's. Plus play a good defense would help.

Funny part the whole thing could be said about Odom.. People want to crap on Bynum for being a head case quitter yet look at Odom on the Mavs and that was a winning team. People crap on Baron for being out of shape but during a redemption year Odom came in bloated. We have no idea how his body will respond to NBA game time coming off drug recovery or the temptation while being on the road.

This biggest point even fat Odom was a better defender than the slim one because he had limited muscle. Lamar Odom is a major head case and he showed that he will be just as bad as our other bigs in scoring. I hope Doc moves away from Odom this team needs length in the West.

What form is it even? Last year Odom could not score to save his life and now he is older without training camp or playing any meaningful basketball half way through the season.

I think Odom and Bynum are both head cases and don't like eithers attitude. Odom's issues haven't seemed to affect the chemistry on the team in the past where Bynum has affected the chemistry to an unknown point in at least Cleveland. Let's not forget his I'm going to keep shooting three's time with the neighbors, and that our bigs laughed at him for it.

With all that said a fraction of the old Bynum is so much better than our current back up bigs, that it has to be at least considered. I'm not too worried about it, if Doc speaks to him and feels it's more trouble than it's worth I'm good with it.

Ivan Johnson is still in China, yeah I'm bringing it back. Let's go see who is going to be available from China if we are out of the Bynum race (even though it seems more like a light jog).

I guess the issues with Bynum were grander than I had imagined. I can understand us being hesitant to take him, but when he is getting no offers from teams then you know its bad. I guess all that is left now is Okafor or guys that are still in China

@PageC4 yeah, I know hindsight is 20/20 and that half of us on hear are going to be like I told you so. In reality I think it might work for some teams and not for others. I think Dallas is in a spot where they are a fringe playoff team, and they have enough veterans a top 5 coach and a superstar that can reign him in. I personally don't think we have enough veterans to reign a guy like Bynum in; maybe if we were going to keep Stak5.

I don't think he fits what Miami is doing, and think he will tear up Indiana's chemistry. I also think it would be hell of a gamble for us, but if Doc made it clear what his role and expectations are and would be then it could be a huge win. I think it would make Jkidd retire early, due to Russian death threats for going through any more adversity than needed.

The only reason I think he slightly would help us because of how bad our bench bigs are. I think 15 minutes a night for him can be a realistic expectation with us.

I agree with you. I just wonder what Doc's take on Bynum is. It must not be good since he flat out denied even being interested in Bynum. I think he was quoted as saying something along the lines of "I like our team." meaning "I'm not even considering Bynum because I'm content with what we have." I just have to say that I'm puzzled that Doc isn't even focused on getting a backup big and he's giving ten day contracts to Morris, and Wayans.

He might be waiting on someone, having someone already in mind. I know there was that Shavlick guy that got some good minutes towards the end with him in Boston. I'm always a big Ivan Johnson fan and the Clips seemed to be one of a few teams with interest in him before he left for more money in China. There could also be Okafer. I think he knows he at least needs three legitimate bigs, Jamison not being one of them. Maybe they can check out Camby or really go all in on Odom.

Reverse psychology, my friend. Like saying to a kid, "No, you can't have these vegetables... they're mine".

If young master Bynum believes the team he is kicking and screaming to play for is rejecting him, it may just cause him to adjust that petulant attitude of his.

I don't think Turkoglu will run our offense anymore than Josh McRoberts runs the Bobcats offense, having the ability to pass some and initiate some plays here and there isn't the same as handing the whole offense over to them. McRoberts is probably a decent template of how we will attempt to use Turkoglu, a PF that plays up high on offense, moves the ball around, sets some picks and then tries to find some open space for threes while sacrificing some defense and rebounding on the other end of the floor. I think we were trying to use Stephen Jackson sort of like this as well, but he was terrible (as Turkoglu might be).

Josh McRoberts is a great example of what Hedo might be. He'll get you rebounds, assists, points...etc and if you don't pay attention close enough he might just be a game changer.

Hopefully Hedo will be just a little better offensively than McRoberts

I am very upset at our Front Office and Doc. They have to know we have holes at the SF and our Bigs are just God-Awful. THEY BETTER HAVE A HUGE DEAL UP THEIR SLEEVES. I think the Clippers gave Doc too much power for his first year. I would have waited 1-2 years before giving him such power. He didn't bring KG Pierce Allen and Rondo in the GM did all he did was Coach them.

This team currently constructed without any Bigs and Small Forwards will not win a championship maybe not the WCF.

I am highly upset right now. Like I said above the Championship teams keep getting better and we don't.

We don't need any Small Forwards to win a championship. No team has 1-5 Great players. Our SF's are fine, they aren't even first 3 options on offense.

Now a backup big is another story. I have not complained about Doc yet, but I can't understand anything short of narcotic influence why we wouldn't bring bynum in for $1million, but will sign Hedo for the rest of the season.
