I'd name the player, but frankly it wasn't just one guy that season who disappeared in the months after his introductory press conference only to lethargically resurface at media day and then proceed to miss large chunks of training camp with nagging injuries related to poor conditioning over the summer.

They could've waited until media day, but they knew the rest of the team was here and they wanted to come out early and be a part of it."

yeah Kaman probably oonly worked out there over the summer. As soon as guys were ack in the LA gym he was probably right there. I expect Kaman to fill it up this year.

that's exactly what clipper nation needs to hear, aside from the fact that that's how it should be year in and year out.

Great news. Always good to see the Clips getting some positive media attention. By the way, I thought Earl Watson already signed with someone? The article said he's still a free agent.

Yeah definitely I'm loving the mindset of not settling for mediocrity. Sounds like a good start to the season to me.
