Is there a realistic goal of expected production for Odom? 13 games in and im still left wondering how much he has left in the tank, and how many pastries he needs to work off.
He consistently gets 16 minutes and 0 points. I think we can continue to expect that until he gets cut or vdn gets fired.
Considering Odom’s contract situation ($8.2m, expiring), you can pretty much eliminate cut/waived from the list of options.
He either rounds into shape, he becomes a trade asset or they send him home/some kind of buyout. Or I guess he languishes on the bench? I don’t know. I’ve already told myself to wait until Billups/Hill are back before actually assessing Odom.
Still early enough to get rid of Vinny. Shouldnt we be afraid that vinny drives this team into a wall which leads to a leaving paul?
talk of getting rid of VDN is futile AND subversive.
biggest thing outta the box score is Bledsoe got 20mins.
DJ also didn’t get enough minutes. I thought he was in foul trouble but looks like he only had 1 all game.
CP3 has taken a couple of shots to his injured thumb – perhaps that’s messing with his mojo
Clippers have now slipped to 9th in offense, tied 7th defense, equal 1st in turnovers, leads the league in steals and is tied 5th for blocks.
like mike smith said clippers need 1 more consistent shooter on the wing that can shoot consistent open shots in the backcourt that can spread the court why is caron butler starting he does not rebound, does not play good defense, he does not shoot well or consistently does not set picks, does not run the floor well, does not go after loose balls
i think everyone is a bit hard on vinny. when we were winning all we could say is “omg our players are amazing cp3 is a beast crawford 6th man of the year”. now that we are losing all i hear is “get rid of vinny he sucks he can’t do anything right, even though it’s the players who are slacking right now
i prefer odom over caron butler coach del negro needs 2 think about defense, rebounding, hustle, covering 4 one another, steals and quickness first and foremost since caron cannot shoot consistent open jump shots get him out of there because he does not help team, play odom 4 defense rebounding passing the little things and get blake more shot attemps along with dj we need 2 be a power team use our assets speed and power i am sorry but i do not feel cp3 is the right point guard 4 this team this team needs 2 run more this slow down drag out boring offense is 2 be use late in close games not all game long most teams cannot stay with dj or blake, 2 of the most athletic big men in the game and clippers don’t use them in right way – a winning coach can see that – a winning coach can see that cp3 is not right fit 4 this team as well this team is lacking a quality young small forward or big shooting guard that can shoot open jump shots quick and athletic
