http://espn.go.com/nba/ Are Los Angeles Clippers contenders? 5-on-5: Can Blake Griffin's Clips become more than just the other team in L.A.? Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images In addition to winning the dunk contest, Griffin averaged 22.5 points, 12.1 boards and 3.8 assists. Blake Griffin made being a Clippers fan cool last season en route to being named a Western Conference All-Star and the Rookie of the Year. Can he go from first-year wonder to league MVP, lifting the Clippers to the postseason in the process? Our five-man panel weighs in on the fourth stop of our Pacific Division tour. Fact or Fiction: The Clippers will make the playoffs next season. Jovan....

IMO, don't think they make the playoffs with the current roster as it stands today.

Illustrate, I was reading your comments and noticed you said Gordon was the number 1 scorer...he led the team in scoring. That's not correct. Griffin averaged more PPG than Gordon did.

ESPN went the easy way out on the Clips and just got the opinions from the guys on ClipperBlog. All of the other teams that have been done have the opinions from bloggers around the league. I'd rather see other guys opinions of the Clips than of the guys that right about the Clippers nonstop.

Nevertheless, he beat him, right? That's my point. That's the ROY for you.

I wasn't replying condescendingly. Just found it hilarious how small the margin was.

Griffin and Gordon need to be healthy for all 82 games if we want a shot at the playoffs next season. All we need. My opinion.

The point was that no matter how small the margin is, Gordon is not the top scorer on this team.

WHY DO YOU HATE ERIC GORDON?

Seriously though, we all know gordon was the top scorer for the team until he came back from injury and had ~16 point games instead of the ~24 he was putting up before. Just because he wasnt healthy doesn't mean he wasnt our best scorer

How do you come up with me hating Gordon by setting the record straight? Yeah, we know Gordon was the top scorer but we were also on a 9 game losing straight while he was ranked 7th in PPG. His PPG started to drop when we were actually starting....

You're right, Griffin did beat him by season's end. Although Gordon was the team's leading scorer for awhile until the injuries occurred and his scoring dropped.

Nevertheless, you get what I was trying to say on that site. My intent was to defend the team as much as possible.

If we could only get our SFs to make WIDE OPEN shots, or score whenever Blake draws triple teams I think we can. Blake is that great. And although no one seems to like him but me, I think MO WILLIAMS is that great as a PG and 2nd to Sam Cassell as far as the best PG we have ever had. I mean please...look our past PGs up...please

Mo is 2nd to Cassell? After less than half a season....Really? Did you not see where he was before he came here? He was part of the single season losing streak in the history of the NBA. I can live with Mo asa stopgap till we get a real PG but let's not fool ourselves, he isn't a PG and never was. His best successful years were with Bron and Bron was the PG.

Anyway, the last guy said it best. It all comes down staying healthy. If our core stays healthy, we'll have a shot at the playoffs.
