In my opinion, now that we have all exhausted ourselves with the hope of acquiring Steve Francis that the real focus should be within the team I.E. Team Chemistry, Regrouping, and just regaining the swagger the Clippers once had two seasons ago. It is a must that the team should begin to work hard this off-season and just rebuild the stature and the confidence which the team proudly showed and proved to everyone through the season & playoffs. Do not let the free-agency issues come into play with what the team really needs to focus on because whether or not the Clippers end up signing a big time player or merely a tremendous role player, it will all depend upon how the team have finally realized their true potential with or without any new players coming in this season.
Yes, there are issues with certain positions; but it would all not matter at all if everyone takes & accepts their roles and use the chance to be on the team to show each and everyone true potential and PLAY AS A TEAM! And yes, It's easier said than done, right? But I still believe in the Clippers and that this season, they shall finally prove that they are a high caliber team that should not be taken lightly at all.
