I am tired of people saying that fans are complaining. Fans have the right to complain if they see the team headed in the wrong direction or not really improving. Things that remain unchanged. Clippers coaching staff sucks. We have arguably have the worst coach in the NBA. The additions minus the subtraction so far will not win us a title. So far I see us reaching the 2nd round again. So are only hope is getting the right players to over compensate for the horrible coach. While I a don't think Crawford was the perfect signing it may not be a bad thing either. It's just not the player we need to take us over the top. Example the Lakers getting Nash has possibly given them a shot at the title once again. The was a big signing with all there cap problems they still found a way to make themselves truly better. This is what we need. A player that has a major impact. I do like the signing of odom. But it it enough to win a title? I don't think it's enough and definetly signing Crawford will not be that piece. It just helps to stabilize us a little. The Clipers still lack 3 major components to compete for the title. Nnew coach, a true big center and a starting shooting gaurd. These were the questions of our team going into the off season. This issues have yet to fully be addresses. If we want to win the title. We need to continue to at least add 2 out 3. It looks like we're stuck with the coach. Hollins would be good for a 3rd back up as a big. 5 mins max a game. If we had D12 then possibly Hollins would be adequate. DJ is no D12 and is far from a finished project. Iwe would need DJ to double his stats basically just so we can contend. Can it happen sure but not with Vinny as the coach. DJ has the talent to be better but will he improve fast enough. I don't think it will be enough fast enough. So the Clippers owe it to us long time fans! I want to see this team truly contend. Hopefully Billups can regain his form and be at least 90% of what he was. But as much as I love having Billups I don't see him truly recovering from this injury. Even if Mr. Big Shot regains his shooting touch. He will lack the mobility to play defense or drive 2 the basket. These are 2 major facets of his game. So in reality at best he will probably be 60-70% of the player he was. So its not complaining it is that the fans want the best.

Clippers don't lack any of that assuming DeAndre works hard and improves which I'm personally giving him another year to do. Billups may not primarily be a SG but he did a great job last year by all accounts not to mention Clippers got another starting caliber SG and may still bring back young. The terrible coaching I agree with but again Vinny will be gone next summer.

Just another negative posting, and I won't apologize.

This roster is not as good as last year. period.

Sure we will win some games.

We will make it to the playoffs.

But we won't make it to the Western Conference finals.

Why? Because this team doesn not have enough spot up outside shooters who can hit the 3.

We can not spread the floor.

Opposing coaches will know what to do. They are not stupid.

They will zone and sag in on Blake and make his life miserable.

They will zone and sag and make it very hard for Lamar or Jamal or anybody to drive to the bucket.

We are more one dimensional than we were last year.

And that will hurt us.

Statistically, Foye, Young, Allen, Lee, and Mo all shot better from the 3 than any player we now have on our roster.

This failure is the result of not having a GM who knows what the hek he is doing.

Maybe we are not done.

Maybe they can sign at least one shooting specialist.

I hope so.

we'll make it into the playoff. maybe gets past the 1st round again. we didnt really do anything to improve the team instead we downgraded. we're banking too much that cp3 will stay healthy throughout the year, blake will improve his game, and dj turning his game around. too many what ifs

What if they go to game 7 of the SF for example? That's a big big improvement. Or do they have to advance for you to realize they got better?

So people aren't allowed to vent?

By the time the season starts I'll be cheering Crawford on because he is now a Clipper and I've been a Clipper fan for 20 years, and that is what I do, I cheer my team on.

In the meantime I'm baffled by this selection. Clippers went into this off-season needing wings that can defend, spread the floor, and if they could help a little with rebounding that would be a nice bonus. The front office went into a completely different direction as Crawford has none of those skills. So I'm here to vent a little because that is what fan message boards are for, right?

$20...that's all. your sure you wouldn't what to up that just a little to $200, since you believe pretty deeply they can't go much further 8)

Alright, $20 it is...past the 2nd round. It'll buy me a good glass of Pinot Noir at least, lol.

I could not have said it better. We got rid of 3 guys who were our best 3 point shooters, and replaced them with two guys who can not effectively shoot the 3. We will not be able to spread the floor consistantly. Our best 3 point shooter now is CP3. We will need to find another way to win.

Yea i apologize for all you dumb asses that dont believe in my Clippers and the improvement of the team. All they do is bash every move the team makes. Stop your damn negativity man! The team is improving man. As a loyal Clippers fan i watch evey move we make and believe me ever since Griffin came on board the team has been doing nothing but getting better. And stop being dumb about this J crawford deal was the right choice. I sure dint want to see Ray Allen on the damn bench injured for most of the season. Jarca take that bet man. Cause the Clip show is running past the second round! I love my CLIPS! GO CLIPPERS!

well its a moot point now, ilyasova is a buck again. however this opens up your proposed acquisition of mbah moute. they have too many forwards now, so they might be able to land the guy. they need to trade some of their forwards/guards. delfino falls into this category as well. i like both mbah moute and delfino, but its delfino's offensive game, particularly his 3 point shooting that makes him a better fit. id look at delfino and mbah moute. they might be right there for the taking. both are good defenders, however, delfino can stroke it from 3 at a solid clip.

i understand both sides. however, the FO is not done making moves, and no matter how many times you tell people that, they act like we are f****n doomed. those peeps needs to relax. we just have to wait and see how this season plays out. im telling u guys if we get mbah moute, wright or delfino and add hollins, we are a wcf team. just look at the roster

Starting 5

cp3

crawford/bills

butler

bg

dj

bench

ebled

bills/crawford

delfino/wright/mbah moute

odom

hollins

trey thompkins, leslie

tell me we are not a wcf team at the very least. butler, bills, odom have championship experience, cant leave that out.

I'm with you. I just don't think Vinny is the worst coach. He's a good motivational coach. Just not a good X's and O's guy. We have no offensive strategy or creativity on offense. Compared to all the screens, backpicks, motion, that the Spurs and OKC runs, we look like stagnant. That's our problem.

Vinny is the most average coach and I don't see us winning a championship with him. He doesn't display confidence in his players because sometimes he will call a timeout himself right when our player is about to inbound the ball and he is constantly pacing the floor like a madman.

I DO think Vinny is perfect for a player like Adam Morrison who is on our summer squad. I think he can motivate him to believe in himself. If we can get Adam Morrison to be a spot up mid range shooter and play 10 min. a game, that would be a positive thing.

OKC

Lakers

Spurs - team that SWEPT us.

I do believe that this is the year we will meet the Lakers in the playoffs and it will be F**** EPIC! Get ready CLIPPER NATION for the Battle of LA!

CP3 vs. NASH

JAMAL will crossover KOBE

LAMAR will punk WORLD PEACE

BLAKE will teabag GASOFT

DEANDRE will throw down with BYNUM

STAPLES CENTER WILL BE ROCKING THIS YEAR.

It's still very early in the offseason, and just because there isn't much activity being reported doesn't mean that there isn't anything done. We should give the front office at least some benefit of the doubt; the regular season is still four months away (give or take), and lot can happen between now and then.

I can't stand people who bitch and moan for the sake of doing so. It could be worse...just thank goodness Elgin isn't the VP/GM anymore.

Repped High Quality Post

Now after we can see the front office's BRILLIANT work this is a perfect time to discuss this I guess. Closest locker room in the NBA, top record in the league and legit title contender.
