Has everyone forgotten about the Clippers draft pick last year, Marko Jaric? He is a prime star player in Europe. He is just like a Pike except he can finish off with a slam just like Iverson! We need him especially with his 3pt shooting now that zone defenses are allowed. I hope the Clips can get the contract deals with him.

Okay even if the Clips get Jaric, where is his playing time going to come from? Don't get me wrong- I think he's probably a good player. But is he a better shooter than Pike? Believe me though Gentry will has his hands full big time trying to balance playing time for the exiting guys. But hey you never know- maybe he can come into training camp and shoot the lights out.

I've heard that Marko Jaric is not interested in playing for the Clippers. Don't expect Jaric to wear a Clip uniform. Besides his game is nothing like Pike. He was measured at 6'5" tall and 190 ibs. He resembles a not so physical Bryce Drew. The only reason Elgin picked him was because the Clips desperately needed perimeter shooting. The Clips are better off developing Miles, Dooling and Richardson into perimeter shooters anyway, because they are younger and much more atheletic than Jaric will ever be.
Hmmmm, a not so physical Bryce Drew? Doesn't sound all that to me :-). Personally I'm pretty happy with the way Pike and McInnis shot last season and hopefully they can keep it going. And imagine if Miles, Keyon and Q and consistently hit that 15-20 footer... I shudder just at the thought!
Marko Jaric is the best! He is a great shooter, is extremely energetic, can produce great lay ups and dunks, as well as offer the Clippers a back-up point guard! I hope the Clippers can keep him because I'm sure with more time to get used to the NBA he will be a great player!
