Being 100 percent sincere when I say thank you. When you win on Sunday I now have zero doubt Vinny gets fired. It hurts like hell now.. But I'll be grateful by next year.

Vinny doesn't need to get fired. His contract expires after this season.

I doubt cp3 is satisfied with a first round exit he had that last year, i could accept a series loss to the spurs but the grizzlies no especially since the clippers stole home court

Either way he's gone. I'm happy with that. Dude has the most stupid rotations ever. Why put Griffin, Foye and DJ back in when Bledsoe, Evans and Kmart dominate?

Yup true no idea why he didn't reward blesoe with his play by letting him finish like he rewarded dj when he played good for a stretch

Olshey better give CP the choices for a new coach so that he could convince him to sign an extension.

Look, VDN deserved credit for turning the season around in late March/Early April. But he's obviously not a championship coach. He has to go. This team has to win with their talent 95% of the time.

I agree. This team was very different without Billups and that should not have been the case given that we have some real big talent on this team. This is completely a team that needs a different coach to run the show.

That losing streak at the middle of the season should not have happened and it is indicative of a huge problem. The silver linning here is that we get chauncey back next year and hopefully a better coach, but you get twhat you pay for, and we got a coach beacues Chicago was paying half of the salary...it hurt us in the end.

I'm going to be out of character and stand up for VDN, he is part of the problem but on the flip side we have too many Dr Hyde/Jackyl players on the roster, what i mean is really good stats on one end but absolutely hopeless in others, god hope we get more all round players next season so we have at least have some certainty on which player is going to turn up on game day

which team? the memphis grizz and their hackense (defense) strategy? their elbowick and roll?(gasol and their bigman elbows on picks). Or the ref team with all their BS CALLS.

In all the clippers should be ready for the nba vs clippers sunday morning.....

I have hopes. lets not give up.

Dont care bout next year. im living in the moment. and loving it....lets get it done on Sunday

Dont take your frustrations out on me.

Everything Ive said has been proven right. I want the best for the clippers but I keep it real.

DJ sux

Blake has no confidence or the ability to shoot mid range

VDN is trash

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

It is almost like he was afraid not to put Blake in because of the criticism, but he did 0 on offense AND EVEN WORSE ON DEFENSE after he put him in. It is almost like The Memphis Bigs knew "Ok Blake Griffin is coming in, FINALLY we can go to work!"

I mean I see it and I am just a fan from the hood how does a Professional NBA Coach not See This Shocked

And for the love of God I hope Del Negro doesnt have any faith in Deandre after that little spurt he had because he was horrid the whole game before that. Cant rebound, the guys try to feed him the ball when they penetrate and he cant handle it...I mean YIKES.

There is a reason Ralph N Mike mentioned a number of times during the game that Del Negro had to think about leaving the bench in a little longer, the biggest reason is Blake and DJ sucking on defense and REGGIE AND KENYON being monsters Defensively. We can score fine, but what good is it if Randolph and Gasol abuse Blake and DJ?

Atleast Blake puts up a hand but DJ does not even put up a hand it is really amazing

I take it back. This might hurt DJ's trade value.

If Vinny was smart, he'd start Reggie or KMart

It is hard to have faith when EVEN AT HOME The Grizzlies get the benefit of all the contested calls AND ****** calls like the T on Reggie. They are really out for the Clippers and it is sad.

fact is this is the team we have.

vinny was brought to bring up youngsters. cp was a blessing for us.

Blake is our superstar and ONLY in his second season.

Dj well dj needs to play all game like he did in the third today. energy guy not howard or even jefferson. just needs to bring it.

I was going to make a thread about how Blakes lack of defense and DJs horrid defense is what is costing us but it is not even worth it anymore. Blake used to atleast be able to draw charges but the refs seemed to have gotten a memo from the NBA not to call anything in favor of the Clippers that seems like a "flop" .... so I mean really....

if Foye makes layups, he goes for 20 and Clips win. An NBA player missing tjat many layups.

Blake is coached horribly. The staff seems to be letting him develop bad habits. Like running out of bounds on defensive rebs. WTF kind of positioning is that.

I bet BG gets elbow surgery in the offseason. Who wants to bet? I thibk he has undisclosed injuries.

That deformed lump he had on his elbow is Elbow Bursitis. I discovered it in my thread where I was attacked.

Melo had to have surgery to help his. THat's what that sleeve is for

kloss is right, this team is incredibly flawed. 05-06 remains a much more well-rounded squad. a squad built with purpose.

im guessing this is still an unfinished product, though. we need productive bigs.

^ are u a doctor or something lol. do u have any proof its elbow bursitis? if u are going to say unsubstantiated stuff, just keep quiet bro. just cuz melo had surgery for that doesnt mean Bg has the same problem. i remember BG wore the sleeve after he took a nasty fall in february and injured his elbow from landing on it. thats why he was wearing it. maybe its a deep bone bruise. who knows.

Thats why people shouldn't be too mad. I figure either one of these teams will get killed next rnd any ways. Max of 6 games. Who wants that?

Clips really haven't did anything to deserve to win the series. Playing to keep it close and then hope CP can bail you out is not a good game plan. Kudos to Memphis be coming to their sense and sending harder double teams at CP. It took forever. Vinny doesn't run any plays.

My biggest concern is Blake. He needs a coaching staff to push him. They've let him develop too many bad habits. His position on rebs is horrible. And it's not all Memphis. he's taking himself out of position a lot of the time.

I just hope Blake can leave this season smarter and needing no surgery on his legs. Hope I'm wrong about the elbow surgery. Hopefully rest will do it and he won't have to rehab anything and can spend the summer working on his game. The Clips need to hire a shooting coach just for him

that was on his left elbow smart guy. It's clearly something wrong w/ his elbow to wear that thing. Basketball players don't just put things on their shooting arm when they've never done it before.

Most people remember his deformed looking elbow. Look up Elbow Bursitis and that's what it looked like. Something is definitely wrong w/ his elbow.

I got to say, I never cared about Memphis one way or the other. But they have been very annoying. From the fans booing blake when he was hurt. To their players having a very c0cky attitude. Their coach complaining when his team is getting away w/ murder.

I would take another season of VDN if he could somehow lead this team to an upset. A win in Memphis in a gm 7, to silence all of those hateful people would put him up a notch in my book.

And if they win I'm assuming the 1st qtr will have to be closer than it has been and that will require some coaching. Like limiting DJ's minutes early

What happened to Mo Williams tonight? I thought he worked really hard at practice yesterday for this game? Did he wear himself out at practice? Maybe he should take a cue from Iverson.

I felt this team was good enough to get into the playoffs, but wasn't sure about winning a series. As someone said before, it's a work in progress. All I can hope is that we can keep Paul beyond next year.

And don't forget, there's the Olympics this year, and both Paul and Griffin are chosen. Might be a good time for both to just pass, and heal. Next year, with some proper fine tuning, a proper pre-season, and quality coaching, and we might be set for a good playoff run. As it is, It's just beyond frustrating watching 'our' team playing without a fluid offense, and lethargic first team defense.

That's one pro-Memphis thing I'll note. They seem to be playing really tight defense on our shooters. It's proper playoff defense.

hey hey, calm your nerves. You sound real angry right now. We have children on these boards. Lets watch the profanity.Shall we?

Im not a dr, but I know a lil about basketball. And a person that struggles shooting doesnt put something on his arm when he never played with it prior to this yr unless he has a reason. .

@klossthegoat, ill watch what i say when you dont make any smart ass cracks towards me. all i said was that blake wore a sleeve on his left arm as well. i also mentioned that its not good to speculate on player's potential injuries without any proof. just saying. going back to the thread, even with vdn, i still believe we can pull it off. its 40/60 we win. they just have to play with more energy and necessity in order to win a tough game. we cant have foye missing layups, we also have to make memphis pay for any turnovers. we forced 24 turnovers and yet we only score 17 points off of those turnovers. cp3 and bg played their worst games in the entire series and we gave the game away. im sure they will play much better on sunday.

It's crazy how this series has gone.

27 point lead, you guys win.

You shoot 57%, we win.

You guys shot 13/30 fts, you win.

We had 20 turnovers, won.

Etc.

Wacky.
