Aiming for a 7:00 p.m. PST start.

Why is it that the Clippers wings (primarily shooting guards) are the most prone to injury? It happened to Chauncey Billups during his two seasons here, and it’s happening again with J.J. Redick, Matt Barnes, and Reggie Bullock.
It’s not that they’re injury prone. Chauncey’s injuries were due to age so yes, he was injury prone. Redick and Barnes got hurt with flukey injuries. Injuries are a part of the game.
Yes, but it’s only this position that is plagued the most ever since the start of the Chris Paul era. It’s as if the Clippers are not allowed to have a shooting guard in the lineup, and if they want one, it has to be a non-shooter or pure defender. I wonder if it had anything to do with the Clippers spurning Kobe Bryant many moons ago. Could be a karmic effect.
Your history is a little messy. Kobe spurned us.
Barnes is a 3/4. Billups was 36 and a natural PG. Bullock is 3. We traded Eric Gordon (a real SG) to get CP3.
When the wings aren’t hitting open three’s should the Clips play more two man game with CP and Blake? With JJ out it would appear to be the most efficient strategy
Trade proposal: Al Horford, Elton Brand’s corpse, and a 2015 pick (lottery protected) for Blake Griffin and Maalik Wayns. Al Horford would be a better fit with CP3 and DJ, and his play will improve even more with the CP3 bump. The Clippers get a pick to make up for the one they lost in the Doc deal. The Hawks get Griffin to help sell tickets. Both teams win…
I’ve been thinking the same thing actually. I don’t know if Atlanta would bite but I’d make that trade right now, and I’ve been a massive BG supporter from the get go…
Sterling would let Doc walk before he trades BG.
Blake Griffin is not for sale.
So what are your thoughts on the Stephen Jackson signing? How long do you think it will take until he starts complaining and becomes his usual bad locker room self?
If you read “11 Rings” you’ll notice Phil Jackson says an authoritarian “my way or the highway” routine with NBA players never works. Popovich tripped on his pud with that stunt he pulled cutting Stephen Jackson. Spurs win Game 6 with him in that series.
