Well, we may not have a Nash, a Parker, a Nowitzki, a Duncan, a Shaq, a Kobe, a Garnett or an Iverson. We do have a TEAM, and although having a superstar added to this team would help tremendously, I believe we have enough talent to compete with the league. We competed in 05-06. We we SO CLOSE to beating the Suns and probably could have made things interesting or even beat Dallas. I know we all wanna jump at a "trade" or some monster free-agent signing, to make things all better...but making that kind of transaction doesnt guarantee success. The Clippers playing as a team and maximizing their abilities will. The talent may not be at the TOP of the league, but talent alone does nothing but dissapoint.
And think of how young some of these players are. They've needed to grow. Last Year was a growing year. They needed to experience defeat, new challenges and personal growth. Ever hear of the sophomore slump? Well that's common with rookies in their 2nd season because the growth is taking place. It's all up to the Clippers players, as to how they'll do next season. We can all sit at our desks, behind our computer screens and tell each other what the Clippers are supposedly doing wrong, but the only thing that will change the outcome of the Clipper's franchise this season and the following, is OUT OF OUR CONTROL.
Hang in there SteelLAC2010...we're in the offseason and I know you're itching to find a solution, because youre a Clippers fan. The solution can be found within (by the players). But maybe an opportunity to IMPROVE and not DISSASSEMBLE the team we already have by adding a superstar or making a smart decision on draft day, can help to turn the tables on what you mentioned as the Clippers track record of one of the worst franchises.
Sorry for my sudden flurry of words. The offseason dead-zone time really gets to ya.
