Neil Olshey Press Conference, May 20, 2009
In that they said they’re going to bring SOFO out for the summer league.
This guy thinks the Clippers are a playoff team.
Good stuff on the auido link, it puts my mind at ease that BG is the pick
Yeah. But the part that said that they have every intention of bringing Dunleavy back is the mind-boggling part.
MUST DO LIST FOR DUNLEAVY:
1. Trade Baron Davis to GSW for K.Azubuike & a future draft pick.
2. Trade ZBo, Al Thornton, Camby and Kaman & get few solid/proven/young
players who can complement Gordon & Griffin.
Sad thing is… Clipper mngt. doesn’t have brains to think big & smart.
We guys are just wasting our time.
In the audio, they already think they’re a playoff team.
Apparently with Jason Kidd possibly being out in Dallas, the Mavs have interest in B Davis and even Chris “German National Team Player” Kaman. If we could get Jason Terry and Josh Howard in return (Josh is in the final year of his guaranteed contract next season with another season as team option). Howard is the same height as Al Thorton and can play the 2 or 3, while Terry can take over at point guard and we’d rid ourselves of two of our big contracts. Next step would be to find Randolph a new home. My dream scenario would be to trade Randolph to Chicago for Hinrich and B Davis to Dallas for Josh Howard. We’d be a better defensive team and have solid help at the 1,2 & 3 spots while getting rid of some really bad contracts.
Josh Howard is too injury prone. Thornton has a higher ceiling than Howard.
Here’s the gist: Both Dunleavy & Baron get one more season to unscrew the pooch. After that it’s ‘sayonara’ for both if things don’t improve in a hurry.
Anyone see that behind the scenes piece NBA TV did watching Blake’s reaction to the lottery? He seemed like he wasn’t upset to me. (Has that what it’s come to whether he’s “upset” or not?) I actually thought he was sort of smiling…
i think he was happy he wasn’t being stuck in Oklahoma any more. LA is a big market, more money and more fun than OKC..
He acts like that normally, he’s like EJ. I’m not quite sure what he’s feeling. Besides, His agents are happy b/c they are marketing him as the next big thing. They have Oklahoma on lock and now LA as a big market is huge for him.
Screw Josh Howard. I would rather have someone who is a drunk than an anti-patriot.
at least he’s not a rapist like Kobe! So happy the Lakers lost!!!!!
He’s also a snitch
Hey no so quick on Griffin, please read the attached, maybe he meant the other LA Team
From what people around the league are saying, Ricky Rubio’s camp may already be sending out feelers indicating that he’s not interested in the least bit in playing in Memphis. “Rubio doesn’t want to go to Memphis, and he especially does not want to pay money out of his own pocket with that huge buyout for the honor of doing so. Fegan [Rubio’s agent] wants him in L.A., and if he can’t have him there, he wants him in Sacramento. Definitely not Oklahoma City.” Unlike Griffin or Hasheem Thabeet, who don’t really have any choice where they will play next season if a team decides to play hardball, Rubio has a reasonably attractive alternative option at his disposal — returning to Spain. “He’ll pull out if he doesn’t like what he’s hearing,” the NBA source tells us. “Or he can stay in and force the Grizzlies to call his bluff — would they really take him knowing that he may never come over? That’s one way to get him to fall to three.”
Id trade half the team for that second pick. Just keep Eric. Everyone else is negotiable, even Al. Having Blake, Rubio and Gordon? Thats a great core to build from.
