Your obligatory Ramon Sessions link for the day: I can’t tell you how many times I’ve frantically checked ESPN and twitter for Sessions updates. I’ve read every article, obsessed over every rumor, and worked out every scenario. Enough is enough Ramon: Just sign somewhere. Anywhere. Please.
A nice article about the Wizards and Clippers offseasons: (Hat Tip: Clipper Derrick) After watching that 82 game train wreck last year, it’s easy to forget that “on paper” the Clippers have one of the more talented teams in the league. Washington, despite missing out on Rubio, had a nice offseason for themselves as well, and boast the coolest nickname duo in the league with “Tough Juice” and “Agent Zero”. A decision needs to be made on nicknames for Griffin and Gordon. Bonus points will be awarded for a solid tandem nickname.
Mark Madsen, dominator of the internet: Ah, the joys of having a Stanford graduate on your team. This story may not be funny, but the mental image of a 6’9 Madsen frantically pressing the refresh button for his ebay bidding surely does. Madsen may not be a lock to remain a Clipper, but if he does he’ll help make the frontcourt one of the bloggiest in the league.
The Clippers and Knicks are both looking at Von Wafer: I may have been a little short with my original diagnosis of Wafer. He’s definitely a good outside shooter and he’s extremely athletic, so talent wise he’s one of the better players available on the free agent market. What the Clippers want with him though remains a mystery to me. Wafer didn’t play any point guard last year and isn’t renowned for his defending or rebounding abilities, two huge issues on last years team. Wafer is purely a scorer, and the talks with him may serve as an indication of what the Clippers are in the market for with that last roster spot. If the Clippers want “just” a scorer, there’s another pretty good one still out there…
Is Atlanta going to let Joe Johnson hit free agency next year? Once the Clippers re-cleared cap space for the 2010 offseason, Joe Johnson’s name became quite popular around these parts. If Johnson doesn’t agree to an extension, the Clippers could be a real player for his services next summer. Of course, a lot will change between now and then, but the idea of pairing the versatile Johnson with the Clippers young core is an extremely enticing one.
Baron tweets about two a days in Vegas: I believe this is the camp Baron is referring to. A quick glance at some of the attendees would lead you to believe that Baron is one of the few veterans present. This is a great sign that Baron is motivated to get in shape, but possibly the bigger factor here is that he’s setting a positive example for the younger Clippers who are present. Also, if you’re just now getting into Twitter like I am, make sure you follow Clipperblog here for updates on Clippers news and new posts.
