To be honest, my grade for this offseason just plummeted down to a C+ at best since we still won't address our biggest flaw. It's going to be another second round exit with Barnes and Dudley getting eaten alive in the playoffs.

Our biggest flaw was backup bigs. We addressed that in the best way possible.

Geez, can't you wait until the off season has ended before you give out grades. Boy, talk about premature ejaculation.

Sorry, but in a conference with Durant, Kawhi, Batum, Parsons, etc. not having a starting small forward that can hold their own when it matters hurts us far more than a backup big.

It's a wings and bigs league and we're still letting a six-foot-nothing playoff-choking point guard dominate the ball. That's not a recipe for winning.

Maybe we have a new mascot...U.R. Hopeless. I like that.

What about Matt Barnes?

LOL at pretending that Matt Barnes is an NBA-worthy starter. If we're still relying on Barnes this year, it's going to be the exact same result as last year.

Only clipper fans could hate CP3 so hard haha. Were becoming laughable as a fan base if we are going to act like this. No one else in the world would be as hard on him as some of the people here.

You don't even know what you want. One day you say Chris Paul is the reason we lost in the playoffs, then the next day it's Matt Barnes and Dudley.

I would bet my life that if we got Ariza and didn't have a backup big yet, you'd be bitching just as hard about that as you are now.

If you replace Big Baby with Spencer Hawes last season, we beat that team in 6 games.

Also, I just checked and we beat a team in the playoffs last year with a roster full of good wing players like Iggy, Klay and Barnes. Isn't that weird?

You'd be surprised. Outside of this website, he's pretty much universally known as a perennial first/second-round exit to fans (aside from the whole flopping thing that he also gets rightfully criticized for). The media, on the other hand, somehow gives him a pass while showering tons of hate on players like LeBron, Dwight, and even Melo who have accomplished more in their careers.

I blame CP3 first (which is why I don't want him dominating the ball and overdribbling this year), and Jamal, Barnes, and Dudley second. Just because CP3 is mostly to blame does not mean that we should not upgrade the massive hole in our starting lineup that will keep us from winning even with a non-choking CP3.

Well, this offseason is officially a failure. Completely blew our draft pick and failed to address our biggest need. Hawes and Farmar are nice signings but we're still not winning anything when we're relying on Barnes/Dudley.

Houston will officially be better than us once they match Parsons. ****!

I'm not surprised. That's as far as he's gotten. But blaming him and calling him a choking ball hog like quick is ranting about is ridiculous. It's up to everybody to win. And it's on everyone when they lose. Outside of this website, Blake gets more grief than anyone but he doesn't seem to get bashed at all on here. Where was he game 6? Or game 5? Some people are just natural born haters and are going to hate anything they can.

Hahahaha that's such a joke of a statement. Please just go join another teams fan base. You might still have time to squeeze into Cleveland if you hurry.

Why would Houston match on Parsons now that they've signed Ariza? Don't they need a stretch 4? I think Ariza is a cheaper alternative for them so they can fill their roster.

I am not ruling this offseason as a failure yet. Ariza could be a huge screw job to Houston by becoming inconsistent after a pay day. I am upset , but we need to improve. I....

I'm really depressed about Ariza. I can't believe there was no way to get him for a similar price on a sign and trade. Sucks so much

if there was away Doc could of got him in a S&T deal I'm sure he would have. Apparently we didn't have what Washington or a 3rd team needed.

Next.

The season starts tomorrow?

I thought it was already over. Doesn't it end after 3 days of free-agency? Congratulations to Houston... 2014 FA champions. Let the parade begin.

It was all about the Benjamins for Ariza. All mighty peso. At the time Ariza wouldn't take our 5mil. If we had 8 or more he'll be at staples center having his press conference by now.

Blame Washington, well, blame no one, Washington had no obligation to be taking redundant players in order to give us who we wanted. We could offer Jamal and Barnes or Dudley to a team with Wall/Beal/Miller and Webster/Porter at SF, Wesbster who can play SG too, who still wanted to sign their guy and he was interested in going back still.

Yea, it really wasn't going to be easy.

....and rightfully so, no reason for the guy to take less money to play of us at all, he gets his money and he's on a good team, win/win for him, good choice.
