Tim Thomas Now Officially A Clipper

Posted by: jamfan on Thursday/July 13/2006 - 01:30 PM

With the loss of Vlad Rad to the LA Lakers, the Clippers turned their eyes toward a more than suitable replacement, officially signing Tim Thomas to a reported 4 year deal using their mid level exemption.

The Clippers traded Chris Wilcox for Vlad Rad just last season to bring in an outside shooter. Vlad was more than competent from 3 point range, and when he bolted to the Lakers, the Clippers found that they still had the same need, a long range bomber.

Tim Thomas' numbers and shooting percentages....

Clippers Workout Few For Draft

Posted by: jamfan on Sunday/June 04/2006 - 08:32 PM

Maybe it is just because they do not have a draft pick until early in the second round. Or just maybe they already know who they are going to pick in the 35th position........hmmmmm. If they are just going through the motions, my guess it is because their target is a player coming out of Europe.

But it is hard to gleam anything out of the workout schedule the Clippers have displayed so....

Clippers To Trade for Eddie Griffin?

Posted by: jamfan on Wednesday/February 08/2006 - 09:21 AM
ESPN is reporting a rumor that the Clippers have offered Chris Wilcox to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Eddie Griffin. Reportedly, the Clippers are getting great production out of Brand and Kaman and that makes Wilcox expendable. Wilcox is an inside guy while Griffen likes to shoot from the outside.

I can't believe this rumor is true. The reason Griffen at 6'10" doesn't go inside is because he can't. And if you need an outside shooter, Eddie Griffin is not the guy. His career shooting percentage is only 38%, 31% from 3, and 66% from....

Dollars And Sense

Posted by: jamfan on Monday/January 23/2006 - 07:24 AM
Many of you have been asking about how the current payroll of the Clippers affects their ability to sign or trade for a player they may want to bring in for the push toward the playoffs and to replace the injured Corey Maggette.

I tried to piece together their current situation by reading conflicting stories regarding where the Clippers are. Not all sports writers are accurate in their reporting. One report says that the Clips are over the cap which limits their ability to make any moves.

This is true. However, the....

Rumors Continue to Swirl

Posted by: jamfan on Sunday/December 25/2005 - 07:22 AM
JamFan - Over the Christmans holiday, rumors abound regarding the Indiana Pacers trading Ron Artest. Oddly, the Clippers are most often mentioned as the mostly likely trade suitor.

Reports out there include Coach Dunleavy having talks with Indiana to set the stage and Owner Donald Sterling chiming in that he has no problem with the trade. What trade?

So, far it is all talk. The Clippers also reportedly have told Indiana that Maggette is off the table. But that is actually OK with Indiana because....

Clippers Won, Coach Loses The Game And His Mind!

Posted by: jamfan on Wednesday/December 14/2005 - 08:31 AM
JamFan- It's time to play, "You're the Coach!" I have been one to complement Coach Dunleavy on nights when he, as well as the team, are firing on all cylinders. But some nights the team isn't going well. Like last night, when the team was shooting 33% from the floor and a one of his starters is actually stinking the place up.

The good news is the Spurs weren't lighting it up either and Duncan was 1 for 11 from the free throw line. But in the end with 17....

How Did We Lose This Game?

Posted by: jamfan on Sunday/November 27/2005 - 06:23 PM
JamFan - OK, we are at Home. We shoot 47% from the field, 43% from 3 Pt range, and hit 92% of our free throws. We had 5 starters in double figures. We out rebounded them 44 - 42, and had twice as many blocks shots. We were only a couple assists short 16 - 18, but we turned the ball over 17 times to their 9.

Since neither team made it to 100, Lawlers Law didn't come into play. That's a pretty good line to end....

Vans with satellite dishes have become common at Clipper practices, and TV cameramen jockey for position daily around players and Coach Mike Dunleavy.

Such is life for the Southland's hottest NBA team, adjusting to an unfamiliar spotlight. "With winning comes all the accolades and all the attention, and that's what we're experiencing now," forward Elton Brand said Tuesday after practice.

"It's good because it's based on our success as a team. It's based on everything we're doing together on the....

Welcome To The Big Show - Clippers #3

Posted by: jamfan on Monday/November 21/2005 - 11:42 AM
JamFan - I was criticized by a few when I put out my predictions in TopBuzz right before the beginning of the season, on which teams would make the Western Conference Playoffs. I had the Clippers as the #3 seed, and I was accused of being a homer, and worse. At that time, most of the pundits out there still had the Clips down deep in their power rankings and still making fun of them.

What a diffence 11 games makes. They have continued to rise in everyone's power....

JamFan - You, the fans, voted heavily that the Clippers are going to make the playoffs. And after this weekends results, why not? Only 3% voted that they will miss, and those were Lakers fans. Moreover, only 6% voted them to the #1 seed, a position they currently hold as the only undefeated team in the Western Conference. The voting leader was the #5 seed at 27%, while #7 garnered 21% and #3 spot finished out with 15%.

So, here are my picks for the final seeds at the end of the season. ....
