Repped High Quality Post
 

I thought it would be a good idea to have one area where we can post all the video clips out there of Clippers Media day so that the forum doesn't get cluttered and so we can all discuss the videos here.I will start it off.

From LACTV:

Wrong check code! Do not try to fool Reputation System. One more try and your reputation will be -500!

Sorry Andrew, I tried.

Yeah, I just saw some other pictures/videos of Odom, and the pictures that Sean posted weren't just bad angles.....Odom is kinda fat now. As long as he plays well I don't care but I'm a little surprised. Maybe he's just getting old.

Butler and Chauncey look good though. I think they'll have big seasons.

Kinda sad that LACtv gave us all the stupid stuff like- fav pose, haircuts, etc... and we needed Power106 for anything meaningful.

thanks for posting up the links fellas

I hope this is just media day shenanigans and that DJ will grow up a bit this year. He and Trey are poster boys for unfulfilled potential so far and they're still clowning around.

Take your cue from the other 8-figure salary guys on the team, dude.

Even Championship teams have players that kid around and brings a calmer presence to the locker room. We have a balanced team off the court Paul, Billups, Hill, Griffin and Barnes will bring the intense focus, aggression and direction but you need the players like Odom (when he gets more comfortable seems a little closed in still), Griffin(both sides), Thompkins, Jordan, Turiaf, Butler that focus on getting the team and fans spirits high and over the course of the season provide humor to battle over the highs and lows.

Loved the interview with Odom and tone it showed he still has some leadership qualities that he learned while in LAL and can be a key piece to the second unit. You can tell he still has some Laker love still in his heart but he is more of at piece in LA and is looking to make this team better.

They might have more videos to release.They probably kept the interviews light because they knew the players were getting asked similar questions by a lot of different reporters so they didn't want to do the same.Maybe there will be better interviews today since training camp started today and LACTV has a chance to interview all of the players.At least that is what I hope.

Lmao Blake... "despite what many people say, I think I have a few post moves" lol I love how he makes fun of the people that criticize him for the stupidest things.

Also, this is the 2nd time DJ is mentioning wanting to put his new found moves into game. Seems like he really did improve this off season.

Read Hill practiced with the starters could he end up possibly starting at SF and Butler at the 2?

I think this should happen.Before I thought Crawford would get the start until Chancey comes back but it makes more sense to keep Crawford coming off the bench because he can get his own shot and that bench is more about defense so they need a scorer.Butler played the 2 with the Mavs so he is familiar with that position and with Hill starting that means we get to see Barnes play more minutes.

So it would be Paul,Butler,Hill,Blake,and DJ starting and Bledsoe,Crawford,Barnes,Odom,and Turiaf coming off the bench.We won't see much of Green,Leslie,Thompkins,or Hollins but we might see them get some minutes and rotate.Which means we might see 1 or 2 in suits on the bench.This team is deep!

^ I'd give Willie the nod in Chauncey's absence. I'm not sold on Butler's mobility against quick SG's. But Yeah, Crawford should definitely be our scoring punch off the bench.

I think VDN will go with a couple of different line ups based on match ups.When we play the Nuggets I think Butler should be in there defending Iggy,and when we play the bucks we would need someone smaller like Green,Crawford,or maybe even Bledsoe staring to keep up and defend Ellis.So I think we will see some different guys stepping up but I am really hoping Leslie and Trey get some minutes this season.Really haven't got a chance to see their game too much.

You're probably right. Bledsoe guarding Ellis... now THAT'S something I want to see!

I remember in one of the Warrior games before Ellis was traded Bledsoe was shutting Ellis down.It was great to watch.Bledsoe is a very underrated defender.Can't wait to see how good Bledsoe is this season.Added 10 pounds to him and should still be as quick and explosive as ever.I hope we meet the Lakers in the conference finals so all the eyes will be on our team and we can show just how good our team is,especially our young guys like Bledsoe.Could you image him defending old man Nash in the playoffs.

^ Man, what a great video! and "clubbed to death" has to be one of the greatest grooves ever... just enhances it.

I think sometimes we're so caught up in the 'now' with CP3 and Blake, that Bled doesn't get enough love. That kid is unique... with focus and effort, he could really become something truly special.

As for him guarding Nash... that'll be fun, but I want to see Nash try to guard HIM... Massacre!

Wish there was an interview here with Bledsoe he is going to be a huge part of our success this year. As he has been in the past two seasons (whether noticed or not). Lamar Odom sounded like an idiot in my opinion in the first video, but I liked that he had something to share with the guys about winning. While I am obviously not a Derek Fisher fan, he does know a thing or two about winning and at the end of the day that is what it is all about.

You know I thought that we have NOOOOO chance of winning the preseason opener without Paul, but now I'm not so sure, with EBled just beasting on defense and making those nice plays offensively I can't wait!

Holy Crap, did you guys see him make a pull up 3? I wonder if we'll see him do that in the regular season!

Griffin needs to release it a little quicker, but that's some three.

And there's Jordan and Griffin, practicing the pass and the post-ups.

And I think I figured out why Jordan did not meet with Olajuwon as everyone wanted him to. Marc Iavaroni played alongside Julius Erving "Dr. J" in his rookie year with the 76ers, so he knew how Dr. J played. Looks like he's passing his knowledge of Dr. J onto DJ.

I read on LAC.com that Thate been working with DJ and BG, and while DJ completely retooled his shot, BG removed the hitch at the release, sounds like a more flowing and faster release!

It wouldn't be terrible if he learned how to shoot 3s but i much rather have him work on his post game and free throw shooting for now. Leave that stuff to Kevin Love.

I think he can make the open 3, like only if nobody is around 10 feet of him will he ever even think of shooting it, but that shows his range!

Blake has actually hit a couple of buzzer beating 3's.You can find some on Youtube.But that was mostly in his rookie year.With the team he had last season and with the team we have now,we don't need him to shoot any 3's.His rookie year we needed him to do everything he could possibly do to help the team win,now he has help.

I remember. I remember he made a 3 in the All-Star game too! Just saying if he can make a 3, 3 is always better than a 2!

I like how Grant Hill says DeAndre has been catching the ball in the post I hope he literally mean he can catch the ball now, that was his biggest struggle besides FT's

The blue alternates looks pretty similar to the old blue jerseys. I always liked those jerseys even though the team didn't have much luck wearing them. This is a totally different team now so I'm glad to see the blue jerseys back.
