A lot of players have gone from small-market teams to bigger cities and they are usually not popular among fans in their original NBA cities. It's not your case in New Orleans. Why do you think is that, that you are still popular over there? CP: You know, it's not about me, being popular in New Orleans. I'll always love the city of New Orleans. Even though I don't play there right now, I'm always there, I always go back. I....

^^Cleepers; Olshey tore it down and basicallt ditched us but he's allready shown with the Phil Jackson mess and some bad moves(not trading Batum for Derrick Williams and 2 first round picks for Batum). But he did know talent just look at his draft picks Eric Gordon,Blake Griffin,Bledsoe,DJ<2nd round even Al Fariq Aminu I think is going to be a solid pro,Now at Portland he got Liilard and stole Papanikolaou from the knicks for Felton so althhough we don't like....

A coach should never have a hand in handling the roster, especially one as incompetent as Del Negro. Does Dunleavy ring any bells? Roeser and Sacks are on Sterling's payroll, but they have zero managing credentials. Again -- we don't have a front office. I disagree to an extent; I do....

I disagree to an extent; I do believe a coach should have some say in who he wants to coach, but ultimately the general manager/VP/president or whomever's in charge of basketball operations will make the final decision. Given that Vinny already had some front office experience as the assistant GM under Bryan Colangelo in Phoenix (who, in my opinion, is vastly overrrated; he only got the GM job in Phoenix because his father owned the Suns), I'll give him....

I won't argue with you on your opinion about Vinny because I've had some doubts about him as well, but I think he earned himself another year by leading the team to the best record in the history of the franchise, rallying the team after they almost mutinied... I'm just tired of having this conversation, I guess. The baby thing was partially directed at you, so I'll take the "moron" tag. It's not the first time I've worn it. ....

Well, his first year, he had Gordon and Bledsoe leading the team as our PG's. Yes, we sucked until we had a healthy squad. What happened next, was that we became the hottest team in the league in a span of 20-25 games. That ended when we....

Clippers record with Chris Paul: 40-26 Clippers record without Chris Paul: 32-50 Billups was injured longer than the clippers had him, Butler played like garbage the second half of the season, and Blake regressed. If you guys watched the games, you know the Chris Paul was the one saving this team in the 4th quarter time and time again.

^^^^Sacks and Vinny have truly done more in the past month than Olshey did in a year. The CP3 trade did take some savvy in regards to talking directly to him and making him comfortable with picking up his option year but the fact remains that we basically had no competition in regards to the shear quantity of assets available to make a trade like that....Plus Sterling obviously had his heart set on the Minny pick and EG. ....

And my point wasn't to praise Olshey, it was that we should have hired a GM by now. I know you try to keep things in perspective but you're going out of your way to talk about what a terrible job Olshey is doing and how great a job the clippers are doing.

^^^It's as simple as that It helps ALOT... But you cant say we are as good a team without Blake... Blake is the sole reason why Chris paul still here. He is the reason why he picked up his 2nd year. He could have been a 1 year rental. ::side note:: Dont worry about Clipyourwings.. he's always been negative. Thank you....

You keep talking about how terrible Olshey is but turn around and talk about how deep the clippers were. And do you know Batum personally? You know that he wants to be in Minnesota?

MCMB, If I say that the CP3 team was DEEPER than the Baron & EJ team, that doesn't mean that I think it was a deep team in general. It means it was deeper than the Baron and EJ led team. Take what I say at face value, don't twist this around. This upcoming team is deeper than last season. And yes, this is a deep team at all positions, not just at the guard position. ....

We also had a deeper bench with CP3. We also went out and got players Billups recruited. Olshey's best solo move was Young. We had already agreed to keep Olshey but he went back on his word and left. As far as keeping Olshey to fill out the bench to support CP3, he cluttered the team with guards. He filled out the bench with undersized bigs. Plus, he isn't doing a great job in Portland. He just used great picks....
